As a family I can firmly say that we were treated with sympathy and dignity. We felt confident in the knowledge that our very loved one was taken care of and looked after until we could say our final goodbyes at the crematorium service. We were kept informed all way through. We are grateful for Newsome Funeral Service for their caring service and attentiveness. Especially Nicola,who was our point of contact all the way through. Thank you from all of Mark's family.
Response from E & M Newsome Funeral Directors
Thank you for your thoughtful and detailed review. It is incredibly helpful to other families in the same circumstances as yourself. It has been an honour to look after you and your loved one and to respond sensitively to your specific needs.

After losing my Dad nearly 3 years ago my mum decided to take out a Dignity plan for herself. This helped our family no end when she passed away in November 2020. Not a good time for anyone but I must say after dealing with my Dads funeral arrangements the plan helped so much not only with the costs but having to make the arrangements themselves.
Having used Newsomes before for my Dads funeral the service that they gave was again very professional and compassionate throughout. My family would like to pass on their thanks to the whole team at Newsomes during these very difficult times.
Response from E & M Newsome Funeral Directors
Thank you for entrusting us with the care of another loved one. The team will be very pleased to hear that their care and support made a difference to your family and it has been a privilege to support your family and care for your Mother and your Father.

The lady that we dealt with was extremely compassionate and professional and we felt confident leaving the arrangements in her capable hands making it less stressful for the family.

Everyone we dealt with was respectful and they ensured all our needs were met.
There was no pressure to spend more money on additional flowers or a more luxurious casket etc.
Nicola kept us updated every step of the way and always checked if we had any questions.
At such a sad and difficult time they were all we could've asked for.
