    Funeral Director Aneliese Rix has been caring and compassionate in all dealings throughout the loss of our precious child. Aneliese was always available when we needed her. She is an amazing lady and helped us through an extremely difficult time. We would highly recommend Gordon Barber and the team to take special care of your loved one.

    The help support and thoughtfulness of Annaliese and the rest of the staff were second to none. Anneliese's compassion and professionalism made the arrangements for my brothers internment as smooth as possible during a difficult time. Myself and the rest of the family would highly recommend Annaliese and your funeral home should we ever need your services again, "not for a long time we hope". Thanks once again to Annaliese and the rest of the staff for a job well done. The Langdale family

    All staff at Gordon Barbers were so helpful and showed their utmost respect to the family. Being there 24/7 for phone calls and visits whenever we wanted to. When the day came everything ran smoothly as it could and the late family member had the best send off. our funeral director stayed with us throughout the day giving us the best service possible. We received a beautiful photo of my mom along with a memory box. All cards were taken and typed out for us then returned in a lovely folder. We cannot thank you enough!

    Nothing was too much trouble. The time of grief is worsened by the feeling of not being in control on the day of the funeral, but my fears here were totally unfounded. It was my mother (the deceased) who took out a funeral plan with Dignity ...... Gordon Barber just happen to be the Dignity funeral directors, but what good fortune that turned out to be. I couldn't fault them. The staff were supportive and fully respectful - nothing was too much trouble. Gordon Barber even provided a beautiful marker cross for the grave. My mother looked so beautiful in the coffin....I've can't remember a time when she looked so lovely. It seemed a shame to sprinkle my father's ashes around her but I was allowed to unite them one final time. Care and professionalism were apparent all the way through. Gordon Barber supplied a folder of/for memorabilia, and sent me a book of poetry that is expressly for the time of grieving - which has no set end! Dying is not a cheap business thesedays but Gordon Barber make the final sendoff a smooth and dignified affair.

    We sadly lost my mum on the 26th of April. We wanted to give mum the best send off we could. I contacted your lowestoft office and set up an appointment with anneliese . My dad and us three sisters attended. From meeting anneliese we were put at ease. She has such compassion and talked us through everything. The funeral was booked for 16th of may, which was also the anniversary of my brothers death. It was such a beautiful service, we could not fault a thing.
    Anneliese and Jodie have made which was going to be the hardest day for all our family into a celebration of mum's life. We would like to thank both ladies from the bottom of our hearts.

    We were recommended Gordon Barber and were so pleased we chose them. The service we were provided was first class. All the staff we had contact with were so caring. We mainly dealt with Anneleise, she was amazing so caring and sensitive to our needs and really put us at ease. She looked after us so well. Everything was faultless from start to finish and we loved the memory box and photo of Mum we were given, such a lovely touch and so thoughtful. I would definately recommend Gordon Barber

    The service we received from Gordon Barber Funeral Directors was outstanding. From the initial conversation with staff, throughout the many arrangements and discussions, culminating in an amazing, warm, personal funeral service, delivered with much feeling by the remarkable lady Celebrant. Every detail was logged, planned and nothing was too much trouble. Staff were respectful yet friendly and so approachable, - very important at this difficult time. Most of our arrangements had to be via telephone calls and emails because we lived at a distance but this was no problem with the office staff who were always helpful, supportive and patient. Not only did they follow our wishes to the letter but also suggested options we would never have thought of ourselves. Amazing service by staff who truly know the meaning of 'going the extra mile' - and much more ! Sincere thanks to you all.

    The night my father passed, the 2 undertakers who came to collect him where so dignified and nice, we then met Jodie to arrange the funeral, she was so kind. Annalise the funeral director was amazing, nothing was too much trouble and Dad's final goodbye was all I could have wanted, At such a difficult time Gordon Barbers, Carlton Rd, Lowestoft helped me and my family, nothing was too much trouble for them. I can't thank them enough.
