We couldn’t have been more thankful for the service provided by Steadmans, Nathan took great care of both me and my mum up until dropping us home after the service and even there after. Wouldn’t hesitate to use again. Thank you again for all you have done.

Words cannot express how wonderful Jeanette, Nathan, and Nina were, at a very difficult, and stressful time for me. From the moment I walked through the door and met Jeanette,I knew my partner was in safe hands, Nathan went through everything with me, explained the process, and we made the arrangements. He also kept me informed all the time of what was happening, and making sure I was happy with everything. When I visited my partner in the chapel, either Jeanette, Nathan, or Nina were there to look after me, and afterwards would sit with me, and took the time to chat with me while I pulled myself together, that I can tell you meant so much to me at the time. Thank you is a very small word for their kindness and caring, but it comes from my heart THANK YOU ALL
Response from J Steadman & Sons Funeral Directors

I just want to say thank you!.. to J Steadman & Sons Funeral Directors.
They were really caring and thoughtful. I felt that I was in safe hands from the very start, right up until everything was complete. They also rang me a few days afterwards to check to see if I was coping ok.
They certainly come highly recommended..

Thanks again

We were supported carefully and with empathy through the organisation of mum's final journey by Adam at Steadmans. At a time when things were very uncertain because of COVID, we were guided through the options which were best for all of our family and friends including those who couldn’t attend. All of our wishes were supported and this included special requests. An excellent service for our most difficult days.

These kind words mean a great deal to the whole team. We always strive to give each family what they need even when times are difficult.

From the initial contact right through to after the funeral , I received a very professional and compasionate service from Steadman & Sons.
A very big thank you to Janette, who from the begining took care of all the formal details, but also provide a special and caring personal touch.

I would highly recommend J Steadman & Sons for your funeral arrangements, they are amazing. From the very first meeting with Nina and Steve to discuss my father's funeral. They showed understanding, care and sympathy at such a difficult time and their attention to detail to what he and my Mother wanted for his cremation was second to none. Nothing was too much trouble and the icing on the cake was the commemorative booklet containing everything that was done and said at the service, this was such a lovely surprise to receive and will be cherished for years to come. Thanks again for taking care of everything I really can't recommend them enough.

The empathy, compassion, respect and support given has helped us through this difficult time. Natalie in particular has been exemplary, from collecting my dad at his home has guided us all the way offering advice and support that my mum needed. Seeing my dad in the chapel of rest on 3 separate occasions was conducted with dignity, compassion and privacy. My dad looked truly amazing laid to rest. Thank you to the professionalism of the embalmers. The funeral was performed with the utmost dignity, respect and attention to detail. A fitting tribute for my dad.
When attending the premises there was always a positive feeling of connection , a feeling of extended family.
To the staff that we met personally Natalie, Jennette, Adam, Robert and Angela we thank you with all our hearts. At what was and is our most difficult time you managed our thoughts and emotions with genuine concern. Thank you.
The staff we didn't get to know by name performed their duties impeccably.

Under the present covid climate I was very pleased with the service we received. My only problem was that I ordered flowers but there was no prompt to ask if I would like a card to be put with the flowers. This was done as a last minute thought which resulted in a bit of fumbling about after the hearse arrived at the house.
Response from J Steadman & Sons Funeral Directors
Thank you for your 4* review. We are very happy to hear that you were pleased with our services and we certainly take on board your comment regarding the card in the flowers and we are very sorry if this caused any distress to you and your family. Thank you again for your 4* review.

Having used Steadman's for my uncle's funeral in 2018, I had no hesitation in using them again for my husband's funeral in 2020. They are very professional, sensitive and courteous at all times: before, during and after the funeral. They were able to provide us with the same celebrant and were patient and understanding to our needs and requests. Would highly recommend them to anyone requiring their services at such difficult times.
Thank you.
