We found the staff, particularly Sarah and Sean, to be thoughtful and empathetic, especially as we were overwhelmed with sadness and unsure of how to proceed. Any concerns or questions were answered fully and each part of the process was explained in great detail. They took over all the arrangements and everything was conducted in a calm, professional manner, which is so important during such a stressful time. We are very grateful for their assistance and would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone in need of a funeral director.

I am so very pleased with the service provided by Adlams on the passing of my Father. They helped me through each stage and supported me throughout. In fact, they even went above and beyond to ensure my brother who lives abroad and could not be with us, was involved. The day ran so smoothly and nothing was too much trouble. Thank you. Jo Rossiter

Everything went to plan and handled in a courteous, professional and sympathetic manner. Kept fully up to date and informed what would happen and when etc. The Celebrant selected for the service was excellent.

My Mum died on the 21st September having suffered with bowel cancer for the past 3 years Being local to Frome since the mid 70’s, there was never any question as to which funeral directors we would be looking to for assistance. From picking her up at her home of 24 years near North Cadbury, and bringing her back to Frome, to getting her ready for her final journey to Semington Crematorium on 20th October, the staff showed true compassion, caring and understanding. To be able to judge how to interact with the family members is a gift, one which Rebecca certainly has. She made the whole process stress free, kept me up to date and checked in on me, and I cannot praise her enough. Maybe once Covid has been gotten under control we will be able to have those coffees we missed out on! Sean was an absolute star on the day and ensured that the service went smoothly. I am so grateful to all at Adlams for being so caring, understanding and professional and for making such a sad process and day somewhat more bearable, especially with the added constraints of the pandemic we are living under – I would not hesitate to recommend them and I believe Dignity should be proud to have them under their umbrella. Thank you.

The William Adlam team conducted themselves with a very professional and dignified manner, ensuring that as a family in beaverment we were not met with sympathy but a geniune desire to deliver the best we wished for our father. From the outset we felt our wishes were respected and that every detail was exact to our instructions, with no imposition from the staff on how the funeral arrangements should. The result was a very beautiful, uplifting service that celebrated my father's life and is a joy to remember.

All of the staff at Adlam's were extremely attentive, supportive and sensitive to our needs. They were respectful in their care of our father and showed great interest when we spoke of him. All of the information we needed was clearly presented and explained to us and they were most patient when we needed anything explained to us again or had new questions (even if the answers for them might have been thought to be obvious). Ordinarily, in my role as Verger at Christ Church Frome, I would have had the responsibility of handing out service sheets, operating the sound system and taking the collection during the service; however, from the very beginning, it was made clear that I was not to worry about any of these things and they took care of all of these additional duties. They were knowledgeable about the local services available at the crematoriums nearby and organised all the music (and there was quite a bit), that we wanted to have played there as well. We were never made to feel rushed and when we visited our father in the Chapel of Rest, we were allowed to spend as much time with him as we needed. His property which we wanted to have returned to us after the funeral was taken great care of and also treated with respect. Above all, all members of the team there were kind and their service could honestly not have been better. We are all incredibly grateful for everything they did for us and for our father too throughout this sad and difficult time. With thanks to them all.

Nick and the rest of the staff dealt with the whole process with compassion and care. We were asked at every stage whether we were still happy with the arrangements and any changes of mind were handled without fuss. They made a difficult time as easily as possible.
