    Everything we asked for was carried out as requested. Personally, I felt that the entry to the church could have been slowed down a bit to allow the entry music to play properly, but that's a tiny point in an otherwise very well run process.

    All the family were extremely pleased with the whole service from walking the hearse in to viewing of the flowers. From my point of view the arranging of funeral was made so easy for me particularly as I was abroad at the time. Thank you for all your help and we will definitely recommend your services to others .

    Family views were of utmost importance in the planning of our dads funeral. Ben listened, offered advice and suggestions, and accommodated all of our wishes. This made the day a true celebration of our dads life.

    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.
