I didn’t know what to do or where to start. We were all in shock, with the sad news of our mum, she was in hospital for a week and never came out again,
We walked into L Fulchers and was made to feel very welcoming. They were all very friendly and had time for us. They told us what would happen on the day, and beforehand.
Nothing was too much trouble for them.
I would highly recommend them.

Excellent service from start to finish.
Through our turbulent time and grief they comforted and assisted us every step of the way in giving my mother the send of she deserved.
I really can’t recommend Fulchers funeral directors enough.
Everyone I met (including Matt) just seemed to go out of their way to help and assist us.
First class service from first class people.

The plan my Mum paid for was one of the best and Fulchers branch near me was just fantastic. The kindness, thoughtfulness was so greatly appreciated. I will always recommend them and Dignity. I just wish we had known before we took out our own plans with another company.

Fulchers were brilliant; at a distressing and traumatic time they were able to guide me through all the legal, and other, requirements of a funeral. With compassion and good humour they made the whole experience as pleasant as possible I would recommend them to everyone

Fluchers provided an excellent service. They were extremely caring, professional and sympathetic. The staff were very friendly and discussed all aspects of my uncle's funeral, incorporating his last wishes.

Thank you so much for your support and advice at such a difficult time.

All the kindness and help I received from Ros and Phil during the very sad time of making arrangements for my mother's funeral was outstanding. Everything was fully explained in great detail so that on the day of the funeral it all went ahead perfectly and in a very dignified manner. As my mother had a Dignity Plan it certainly made dealing with the arrangements a lot easier as all her wishes were written in the Plan.
