    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.

    The staff at Newsome's provided an excellent service. Just the right mix of formality and friendliness. The whole process was explained well, allowing time for our family to discuss and make decisions together.

    We have recently used E & M Newsome to facilitate the funeral of my auntie. The were polite, caring and thoroughly professional at all times and my family and I could not have asked for a better service from them. They also carried out my fathers funeral last year and all of my grand parents and other family funerals over the years. I would thoroughly recommend them to anyone.

    First of all myself & my family must thank all the staff at E & M Newsome for there care & compassion, throughout the whole process, of my mothers funeral arrangements. Arranging for cars to be brought up from Birmingham,(as my mother didn't want black funeral cars) through to the floral runner for the coffin & putting us in contact with a humanist, to conduct the service. Everything was carried out with total professionalism, we can't thank the whole team enough for there services at this time of Out heart felt grief. Thank you once again for all your services.
    Kind Regards.
