I must mention Martin who was so professional and outstanding in his support throughout the whole process. He made the whole process so much easier with his support and organisational skills . The whole family have commented how lovely the service was . Thank you again Martin from sorting a celebrant who matched our needs perfectly, to the fantastic florist recommendation . You made the whole process so much easier at this very sad time . Thank you so much Martin for the support you gave via the phone or my many email questions .

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.
