I can't speak highly enough of how A E Thurlow & sons treated me and all my family during this difficult time.

The team at Thurlow were very professional right from the start. We were guided through the whole process efficiently and with kindness. The support provided by Jenny on the day of the Dad's funeral was exceptional. At a very difficult time the team stepped up and made the experience much more bearable for the family. Many thanks to all of them.

Lewis has been brilliant. He helped us plan a fitting funeral for my Mother in Law. The whole process was dealt with compassion, suggestions but no pressure. He kept me informed at all times as to progress and checked with us on any matters that needed our input.
On the day he and his team guided us through the day and did a lovely job cannot fault them at all. He was there at all times to answer any questions and support the family through a tough time.
A big thank you to everyone at A E Thurlow & Son and especially Lewis for his continued help even now to help sort the headstone.

Thank You
