Everything was 1st class from the arrangements and viewing to the day itself. All your staff were helpful, courteous and very kind at all times. Thank you for looking after my lovely mum in such a special way. Special thanks to Clare who arranged the funeral, she made it all the more bearable. I will certainly recommend your services if the opportunity arises. Thank you from myself and behalf of my father and the rest of our family.

Everything about the service was great, the staff are lovely & very polite, they were very helpful & very compassionate in what was a very bad time for our family. They kept us informed with everything as there were things we didn't know (because of where my father passed away) & they were always telling us they were only a phone call away.

hi, this was my first experience of arranging a funeral, you were recommended when my mother prepaid her funeral with age UK. I did not really know what to say and do. but from the start of you being informed and you phoning me and meeting you was really good. we were made very at ease and did not feel like we were arranging a funeral. Rachel who did the arranging for us is a lovely young lady (whom I could have talked to for hours) explained everything in detail as we'd asked, and I changed the music a few times without any problems very accommodating. and Phil (also a lovely man hope I got his name right)the driver of the limousine phoned before the day to check everything, times and any preferred routes was all ok with us. The celebrant you sent to see me was also a lovely lady and also very accommodating I changed the eulogy a couple of times with no problems and did the service as we had asked. I would highly recommend your services, all very polite and dignified. thankyou so much to everyone involved in the funeral.

Hydes were brilliant. I was not impressed with waiting for doctors they take to long while my husband was deteriorating.

I had to arrange my elderly mother's funeral single-handedly and largely from a distance, and W Hyde & Son provided a complete package efficiently and sensitively - guiding me through the various decisions that have to be made in this process. It was particularly comforting to have the sense of dealing with a local firm with the atmosphere of a family business rather than, perhaps, a more impersonal chain. I hold their service in high regard.
