Reviews of our services
The funeral director was friendly and gave me as much time as I needed to ask questions. At a difficult time I felt reassured that It was all in good hands. I felt comforted by knowing this.
support & care which you gave in abundance, I have to say how brilliant Chanelle was through the
whole procedure, the way she organised everything, with care , understanding, politeness, & very
professional. I can’t thank her enough, she is a credit to your firm, and all your staff.
Thank you, Robin.
A huge thank you to you all for making everything so much easier for us at such a sad time.
The Funeral Director was available on the phone to answer any queries that came up between the first meeting and the funeral date. The flowers were excellent and the charity collection was well organised. We can recommend the service wholeheartedly. Thank you
Cliff seemed to understand the style of event we had in mind and helped us to achieve our goals. He suggested the ideal lady to conduct the ceremony and helped so much with sourcing the music, which was of great importance to us.
I would not hesitate in recommending S and R Childs to the highest degree
Also they were very helpful at keeping me informed and negotiating with the Coroner and GP etc.
Even if the named director was not available a message was taken and they always made an effort to get back to me. I appreciate the effort they made in the run up to the funeral and they were helpful on the day.
I have had no contact since the funeral I think that might have been nice just to check everything was ok the only reason I didn't give 5 stars.
