    Excellent empathetic service. Kirsteen was very efficient and extremely kind and considerate. The undertaker on the day of the funeral was very mindful of Mrs Hartley’s poor mobility and tailored the timing to her and was of great assistance in settling her into her seat in the Crematorium. We were very grateful to Kirsteen to for recommending Kevin Shepherd as the Humanist Celebrant who gave a perfect service.

    G M Charlesworth & Son provided the funeral services for my Mother in 2016 and, more recently, for my Father in April 2019.

    On both occasions the undertakers were approachable, sympathetic and professional while we were making the funeral arrangements.

    Similarly, the staff on the day of the funerals were faultless in the way they carried out their duties. This was very reassuring to the family on what were understandably sad occasions, and the attendees agreed Charlesworths had done us proud.

    I am happy to recommend G M Charlesworth & Son, Funeral Directors.

    Very, very efficient and delivered with quiet dignity. Nothing was too much trouble and I am quite certain my late wife would thoroughly have approved of the whole process. Thank you so much, I appreciate your kindness.

    From beginning to end my mother was looked after with great dignity and professionalism. The company kept me informed of what was happening at every stage of the process. We have a big family and lots of people wanted to visit my mother in the Chapel of rest before her cremation, the staff were more than happy to help everyone who visited and made them all feel at ease. Two of my nephews wanted to be bearers and were allowed without any problem. There were two other bearers on standby just in case they didn't feel like it on the day. The company arranged for a funeral celebrant to visit me and due to family commitments we asked for a late meeting and he came at 7pm which was perfect for our needs. The celebrant provided a lovely service and listened to everything we had to say about mum she would have appreciated it. The bearers walked in front of the hearse until we got to the main road and bowed before he entered the car. I hope we don't have to use this company again for quite a while but will certainly use them again in the future and thank them all for the dignity and care they provided for my mother.

    Charlesworth's were great from start to finish as they took away a potentially stressful element from a very difficult time. No request was too much, communication was clear and arrangements were organised efficiently and Kirstine and Paul were both compassionate and understanding without ever being patronising.
