    Absolutely faultless from beginning to end. Literally faultless.
    With Fulchers, I received a level of care and professionalism that I’ve not experienced with any other company before.
    They didn’t just meet my expectations, they far exceeded them, right down to the courtesy call the day after the funeral to see how I was.
    Lewis, the guy that I dealt with from beginning to end is a fair bit younger than me and I would be more than happy if he took care of me after I’m gone! Even the limo driver commented on his professionalism and attention to detail.
    I genuinely could not recommend Fulchers highly enough.

    The staff at Fulchers made the difficult task of saying our farewells to my father as painless and smooth as possible. James was an absolute credit to your company and we cannot thank him enough for the care and compassion he showed the whole family.

    From the moment I picked up the phone and called Dignity they were wonderful, they put me in touch with Fulcher Funeral Direcrors who again were great, they took care of everything right from the start, Hayley was so professional and caring and took a lot of pressure off us, everything when perfect, I couldn't have ask for a better service.

    From our first meeting with Fulchers we were all impressed with their professionalism and compassion. They made the most difficult of times so much easier. They organised everything for us and afterwards they brought round a beautiful memory box with Mum’s photo on it and inside was an album with all the cards from the flowers and the memorial cards that the mourners had filled in at the service. This was just the kindest and most touching of gestures.
    I truly cannot recommend highly enough ******

    My Brother and I felt very supported by Jenny and her team. My Dear Mother's service was conducted with dignity, empathy and professionalism. Despite being such a sad sad time it gave us a sense of pride and comfort that her wishes were carried out.

    From my first contact with Fulcher's until the last, the service they provided was quite frankly, outstanding. They simply 'got it right' from the level of empathy, the information and help they provided me with, just when I needed it, giving me time, whenever I needed it. It was all about the family, getting it 'just right' for us, down to every detail, and every last detail was thought through and discussed, confident that they could provide us with a tailor made, quality service and be sure to 'get it right' on the day. Nothing was too much trouble, they were always there for me, I never felt rushed or pressured in any way.

    On the day, it was as though they were my family, I felt confident about the whole thing, I felt close to them, I felt their warmth. They exude finesse, from their movements, a car door slowly opened just at the right time, their words, a smile, a supportive glance. I am so grateful I decided to use this highly professional company to provide bespoke funeral services, to help me, to say my last goodbye to a very special person, my dear Mother aged 95.

    Fulcher's exceeded my expectations. They took all the stress away, I felt fully supported and completely safe in their professional hands, leaving me to actually enjoy the experience.

    I highly recommend L Fulcher Funeral Directors in Whiting Street. A particular mention to Oliver, thanks for your support and kindness and being there for me from start to finish. And to Fran, thanks for your kindness, thoughtfulness and getting us safely there and back!

    From the beginning when they collected my husband to the end when I collected the memory book, the care and support we received was outstanding. They were sensitive but professional. The whole experience and care shown to me and my husband made me feel as though I was ‘the only one’ being dealt with when one knows they are actually very busy.
    I never had any doubts in choosing Oliver and his team and I would recommend them every time.
    Thank you to all from the office staff to the team that attend the funeral. You made this difficult time so much easier to deal with.
