My mothers death was relatively sudden and I’d no time to prepare for any of the administration that follows. I mainly chose Cooksleys as I knew of them having worked near by several years ago. I can only praise them for their compassion & efficiency. Covid obviously had an impact & we couldn’t have exactly what we would have wanted but they talked us through the implications & ensured mum got the send off that she so deserved. Thank you
