    The arrangements were entirely satisfactory in that they were dignified and efficient. I also appreciated how quickly and easily the planning and liaison with me was carried out by Knapps

    The service provided by H J Knapp and sons, was superb from the first phone call to the follow up call after the funeral. They were so helpful and respectful throughout the organisation and preparations and nothing was too much trouble for them. Everything ran smoothly and like clockwork on the day of the funeral, making a very difficult time for the family, somewhat easier.

    From start to finish the Knapps team were there for us whenever we needed them by phone, on email or in person. The arrangements all went very smoothly and on the day of the funeral they were professional, courteous and unobtrusive - all our requests were taken care of. Thank you.

    H J Knapp and Sons managed me through the process with care, attention and understanding. I saw only respect for my late mother from the team and appreciate how they managed the process flawlessly and without issue. Thank you for making a difficult time that little bit easier.

    Suzanne was at all times attentive, understanding and efficient. I am sure she is a very valued member of your staff. There was a bit of a mix up at the graveside but probably not much which could have been done to avoid it. It was simply that there was not enough space for the normal ceremony at the graveside.

    The service provided by HJ Knapp was excellent. From the first conversation with Suzanne through to her call to me the day after the funeral, everything was dealt with courteously, sensitively and with dignity. There were several nice unexpected little touches in what they did that just helps get through a difficult time. The funeral service and burial itself was faultless, afterwards all the family agreed that it had been just perfect. Thank you so much.

    The service we received from H J Knapp was brilliant. Suzanne James saw that everything was done that we had asked for. The day of the funeral everything went perfect, the best you could ask for on such a sad occasion. My brothers, My Mother and myself were very pleased with all aspects of the funeral.

    Very efficient throughout. All details fully explained which aided decision making. Suzanne was main point of contact and was really helpful; Barry was Funeral Director and again could not have done more. Thought it very touching to receive a small vase of flowers which was much appreciated.
