From my very first visit,all staff were very welcoming, and extremely professional. Tony helped and guided me through the whole process which would have been overwhelming without his help. I can't thank the team enough from start to the funeral day. It went perfect and just as planned . Thank you for making my journey through an extremely sad time easier. Once again thank you.

Our first appointment with Steph was made very easy, we were able to go through the necessary form and complete each part with consideration and didn't feel rushed, we must have been there hours!
Yes, we were sad that we were unable to visit Dad in the chapel of rest as an open casket because of covid restrictions but understood that we could visit the closed casket which we opted not to do.
I was able to come away from that meeting with a sense of being looked after and new what was required from us to move forward with the service.
Steph quickly put us in contact with a lovely Reverend, who actually attended our mother's funeral some 4 1/2 years ago.
I was able to sort the newspaper advert with help and feel that I was kept up to date with any queries straight away. Daily emails or phone calls were very helpful and dealt with quickly. I had the feeling that the staff were very approachable and nothing was too much trouble.
The digital notice was a lovely touch that we could attach a photo and send to friends and family so then they could put a donation on instantly. I had never seen this before.
I was grateful to receive my phone call from the drivers to discuss how the funeral day would pan out and thankful that they had been to do a precheck on the lanes around dads house so they knew what they were up against (a lot of mud!). I think this put my mind at rest that all was being taken of.
On the day of the funeral everything went so smoothly I didn't have to think of anything. Just knowing that it had all been sorted before hand was a huge relief.
We would like to thank everyone in the team for being compassionate and caring and making such a difficult time smooth and calm.

The service Tony provided for my Mother-in-law was the best we could have hoped for, they were very respectful and considerate. The Celebrant, Bob, who was recommended captured her character and spirit.

My sister & I could not have wished for a better service for our Dad. The team were professional, friendly & efficient at all stages. Steph was brilliant & we felt that she did d her absolute utmost in the preparations to do everything that we asked of her., super efficiently. We wanted the Order of Service to be extra special for Dads siblings who couldn’t be there on the day & Steph worked with us to get it just perfect. On the day, Tony really looked after us, giving a clear account of proceedings in a sympathetic & friendly manner &, along with his two gentle assistants, made sure everything happened as we wanted it to. Every one there commented on what a lovely service it was & even though we were few in number in a big space, they made it feel intimate & special. Nothing was too much trouble & my sister & I thank you so much.

I was very pleased with Newport and District Funeral Directors. They handled the organisation of my mother’s funeral in an exemplary way under the very trying circumstances of lockdown.
