Throughout this very emotional time the staff at S & R Childs, were sympathetic, respectful, helpful and supportive. As my father died at home it was really important to know how to negotiate the stages up to and including the funeral. They helped at every point, questions were answered and processes put in place quietly and effectively. I would not hesitate to recommend them.

Everything was done, as described, and as requested. We felt the staff went the extra mile on our behalf. We noticed signs of weakness in the efficiency of the business, but the impact on the service we received was minimal.
