The picking up my mothers body took some time. When I got in contact with yourselves I was told somebody would contact me. I left it 2-3 hrs and had to contact yourselves again when I was given a time slot to pick the deceased up.
This was honoured and after this everything ran very smoothly.
The service was exactly what we requested and the speaker you recommended was superb.
Thankyou again.

The service provided by Handsworth and District was exemplary. Nothing was too much trouble and, during such a stressful time, the guidance and advise given was excellent. Jean certainly made the extra effort with planning our funerals, even pre booking a crematorium time slot to allow us to have a joint funeral, once she had been made aware of our second bereavement.

I know, funerals are not something people would ever think of recommending but I was so impressed with the quality of their service given to us that I would definitely recommend Handsworth and District Funeral Directors.

Thank you for all you did for us, making a difficult time that much more easier to cope with.
Response from Handsworth & District Funeral Directors

From the very start, when we first contacted Handsworth & District Funeral Directors; the overwhelming feeling was one of the representatives caring about the grieving relatives with compassion and respect for our feelings. The respect shown to our deceased mum when she was handed into their care was comforting and relieving, we knew that she was in safe hands.
Jean, the representative who first visited us and handled the whole process was calm and efficient, the pre-paid plan was explained to us in detail (we were aware of the plan) and over the next few days we were contacted in bite size chunks for details of the service and the status of preparations. Most of the relatives were at the bedside when she died, but sympathetic arrangement were available and used by some of us at short notice prior the the funeral.
There was a small clerical issue with the religious service, not noticed by ourselves but by Jean who rectified the situation to our satisfaction.
The funeral went off without a hitch & with dignity for both mum & the family...Thank you all.

Very friendly staff esp Jean who did everything to arrange the funeral for my husband. Funerals are not something that anyone looks forward to my husbands funeral was as good as it could have been. Very sensitive staff in all areas.
