Reviews of our services
Funeral Director who was kind enough to put me in touch with a priest and cemetery many months before and explained the proceedings.
When the time came we called on the out of hours service and from then on we received an exemplary professional personal service.
The attention to detail was immense at a time when you cannot even think straight yourself. Excellent communication even out of office hours.
Extremely Sympathetic to our needs, adjustments and requests nothing was too much trouble.
Fully Planned in every detail in conjuncture with the priest and rehearsed.
On the day itself a whole army of professional and beautifully presented staff in immaculate vehicles arrived. With what people have described as a most beautiful cortege.
Our mum was treated with great respect and dignity at all times and that is all you can ask for.
I would highly recommend
Aneliese went above and beyond to ensure we got through the day.
Fortunately we had Aneliese when we lost our daughter 22 months ago, aged just 20, carry out the funeral arrangements. It was an extremely emotional day, which we would never have believed we would have got through. Without Aneliese and her team we would have crumbled. But Aneliese never took her eyes off me and my husband and we felt she held our hands from start to finish. for that we shall be forever grateful to have had such a wonderful woman as our guide.
Would not hesitate to recommend
The help she gave us during this difficult time and the compassionate way in which she conducted the proceedings on the day was greatly appreciated. She ensured that our mother's final journey was a dignified and caring one.
Although the covid restrictions hindered attendance, we truly believe that the intimacy and family orientated element of the service would have been what Mum would have cherished.
The professionalism and level of support provided by Aneliese and other Dignity staff was excellent throughout and left us in no doubt that we would recommend them to anybody else who found themselves in a similar situation. Well done to you all.
