Reviews of our services
Mark and his team provided a dignified, graceful service at the Crematorium and helped us afterwards. I appreciated a call from Mark the previous day, reassuring me of the Covid measures and exactly what we should do on arrival. It was all truly dignified.
Linda was in touch the next day to find out how we felt and a lady from Dignity rang 2 weeks later to see if we were still alright. We were so impressed that they all went the extra mile, knowing how busy they are in the pandemic.
I have huge praise and thanks to FM & J Wait staff for their care.Thank you.
From the start everyone was professional and respectful, acting swiftly and considerately whilst understanding that I wasn’t always able to make a decision due to grief. I never felt hurried and there was always a listening ear at the end of the phone.
Delivered what they promised.
They offered us a service whereby all the details of the service and the wake could be emailled to all family and friends. Initially there were some problems about getting this ready to send but then it worked well.
We were very grateful to all involved.
