    In response to your request for feedback about the service that S & R Childs inc. Fisher & Townsend Funeral Directors in Witney provided, it was excellent from the outset. All matters were dealt with in a highly professional yet gentle and empathic manner. No request was too much and all the arrangements for my mother's funeral were talked through in a very supportive and caring environment. Whilst the day of her funeral was tinged with great sadness, the level of care, attention to detail and support we were afforded by all members of the team ensured that it was a very special and memorable one. My special thanks, goes to Kaisa. She was so helpful and easy to work with. Her advice and support was, and always will be, be much appreciated. I would have not hesitation in recommending the branch to anyone. Thank you, Libby McCune

    Simon was extremely helpful & very patient, particularly as we went back and forth with various options for the date to ensure that all family members were able to attend. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble. An excellent service. Thank you.

    The staff in the Witney branch were superb in dealing with our requirements and endeavoured to achieve over and above that which was expected of them. Living overseas, dealing with the funeral arrangements via telephone and email was made simple by the efficient and timely communications of the staff involved. Thank you.

    On the whole the services for both my Father and Mother have been top class. You get a very professional service from staff at all levels, from pre funeral meeting, contacting staff at Witney and the staff at the funeral itself. All were excellent from start to finish. We had a minor issue about the flowers after the funeral, but it was very quickly sorted out to our satisfaction. I should also add a big thank you to the Celebrant Sarah, who led the service for use on both occasions and was top class as well.

    At a very sad time we were treated with kindness, friendly faces and professionalism. We were helped through all the necessary arrangements needed with efficiency and compassion and felt reassured that our Mothers funeral would go as planned. We were not disappointed on the day as Simon quietly and efficiently ensured that the day went smoothly, following our plans and giving our Mother the send off we had wished for. Indeed all staff were excellent and professional and I certainly recommend this firm.
