The first contact was on the phone in the early hours, very helpful indeed. Then the next two people we had contact with were the two guys who collected Mum from home - excellent!
I had the most amazing service from Shirley at the Funeral Directors office. She was compassionate, considerate, professional, yet friendly too, she is a true asset to your companies. She helped with so much, and made a dreaded task much easier than we anticipated. Thank you Shirley; I have no complaints.
The Celebrant, Mel; was excellent too. Despite being a very complicated family with lots of information to write down, she did an amazing tribute for my Mum. Thank you Mel,; I have no complaints.
The pall bearers were excellent with the family and gave us all reassurances that things ran smoothly. The ‘behind the scenes’ staff were very sensitive to how Mum looked, they did a wonderful job.
Many thanks to you all for a wonderful service, and your professionalism and friendliness. Thank you.
