Robert Nicholls gave us the best service. Emma especially so professional & always helpful every time I called. She made the whole process much less daunting. Everything ran smoothly on the day of Mums funeral. I can’t praise them all highly enough.

I have nothing but praise for the team at Robert Nicholls in Stafford. From the moment we rang I have no complaints. I didn’t realise just how much of my endless wittering was remembered by Jane until the day of Mum’s funeral, that’s when I saw the little things that meant so much to us, from the name plate in the coffin to the boys wearing peach ties.
I can’t think any anyone better to look after my Mum on her final journey. I could go on for hours - they did not disappoint - thank you Jane and the gang at Stafford Robert Nicholls
Response from Robert Nicholls Funeral Directors
Thank you for this positive recommendation, it is greatly appreciated. Your kind words mean a great deal to the team who always work very hard to deliver great care. It means a great deal when people take the time to share their experience and to highlight individuals in the team who have made a difference.

After having to use Robert Nichols twice in a year the service and care was excellent once again. The attention to detail the pace that they take you through everything was wonderful. Advise and guidance throughout to ensure the best possible send off for my dad. From personal order of service, to suggestion of a web cam for family abroad made the day special in so many ways for all the family. I think the are a wonderful team and I have great admiration for what they do. A huge thank you to you all.

Wonderful all-round service from Robert Nicholls. Thoroughly professional and caring. All our wishes were taken into consideration and they helped us secure the services of an excellent celebrant in Nicola Richards. Special thanks to Emma at Nicholls - our chief point of contact. Nothing was too much trouble, which made everything so much easier for us all.

At the most difficult time, Ben and his team made a difference.

Coping with the loss of a parent is hard enough without the added complications of a national lockdown. Ben and his team made sure that we could say goodbye properly and in the best way possible.

The team went above and beyond focusing on the smallest details that made a difference. Robert Nicholls were recommended to us and there is no doubt that we made the right decision. As a family we cannot praise Ben and his team highly enough.

Thank You

Most professional and sincere at all times, Emma was friendly and most helpful in accommodating our needs at the office. Nigel, what more could be said, has dealt with family funerals on paternal and maternal sides and always a gentleman, compassionate, almost a family friend. Excellent service highly recommended.

Having to face our fathers funeral so closely after my mothers was a very difficult time. All of the staff at Robert Nicholls funeral directors supported the family throughout and the staff that had previously dealt with my mothers funeral remembered us and made the effort to compassionately acknowledge this difficult time personally to us which was very thoughtful and much appreciated. It was very clear by their actions that we weren't just a number and that the staff care about the families that they are supporting. Any requests we had were dealt with quickly and the day ran very smoothly, so I'd like to thank all the staff for their care, support and professionalism.
