We were delighted with the service that we received from Newsome Funeral Directors. 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. The service that we received was personal and nothing was too much trouble. The lady that lead the funeral was very professional and everything was planned perfectly, right down to the very last detail. Would highly recommend.

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.

Excellent service in every respect from first contact to the end of the funeral service and burial. The Order of Service booklets needed some last minute changes but this was swiftly dealt with by the undertaker who called me on a Sunday morning having read my e-mail from the night before, despite the office being closed for the weekend.
Would recommend this firm without hesitation.
