One word describes my experience.... FAULTLESS. The care and understanding we received from all concerned with my mum's funeral was absolutely outstanding. The ladies at the office were both very sympathetic,knowledgeable and helpful. I would definitely recommend Michael Smy Funeral Directors to other people in the same position.

I recently had to help a friend arrange a funeral for his wife. The lady that came to the house to arrange the funeral was so lovely. She was helpful,caring and very compassionate. Even when we were unable to confirm the funeral could go ahead until a few days before the funeral, due to unforseen circumstances, the funeral director stayed calm and reassured us that everything was fine. Great service from Michael Smy and staff at all times.

The funeral arrangements were very helpful from the Directors and caring to our wishes.
On the funeral day every point that we had requested were carried out perfectly. As everything went off to perfection I was so grateful that my wife had a well deserved farewell. I now know why the Directors has the name of DIGNITY. Many many thanks.

Everything about the funeral was well organised and handled with care and understanding, making it as less a difficult experience as it could be in the circumstances. The support at the most difficult and emotional times of the day itself were particularly appreciated. The day could not have been any better from the point of view of giving our dad a good send off.

My husband and I couldn't have wished for a better funeral service. All our wishes were met by Michael Smy's. The staff were amazing, very friendly, yet very professional also. Everything just fell into place smoothly and all the added stress that we could have had was taken over by the staff of Michael Smy's. They advised us about everything and followed our instructions right to the end. Thank you so much from the whole family! We can't thank you enough.
