I was very pleased with the service of Gordon Barber Funeral Directors. Sadly it was the second occasion I had used them but both times the service was impeccable. Nothing was too much trouble and they were always available to answer any queries. They made a very difficult time easier to deal with. I would thoroughly recommend them.

I found Amanda and Stephen extremely helpful and professional. We arranged everything by telephone due to current restrictions. Amanda offered suggestions which we took and we were very pleased with proceedings. We were kept up to date with what was happening at all times. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.

Right from the outset through every moment of this difficult time for our family, we all found everyone at Gordon Barber to be respectful, supportive and kind, we couldn’t have asked for a more professional and human approach to have been taken with us. From the kind supportive informing phone calls regarding the entire process from Aneliese through to some comforting and supportive chat from the head coffin carrier (sorry I have forgotten his name) at the graveside.

We all thank you, from all our family
