    I have used them twice for both parents who had a prepaid funeral plan. They made the process very smooth and assisted us through each stage of the arrangements. Even Michael Smy himself came out of retirement to officiate things. I used the Bramford Road branch as it was nearer to home and felt like I got a personalised service. Would highly recommend.
