I was very happy with the service Brown Fenn & Parker gave me,they couldn't have done more for me to get me through this very sad time,they were top class.

From the outset Susy was very understanding and very helpful.
Communication was good and nothing was too much trouble.
On the day of the funeral all staff acted extremely professional.
Just one point I would make is that on a hot day, consideration to get the aircon on in the limo earlier would have been better, as the temperature in the vehicle was like an oven.
Secondly, on the invoice it would be better if a breakdown of "Our Service to You" showed individual items as £1,320 is a considerable sum and needs explaining.
Overall, I would highly commend Brown, Fenn & Parker for their very close attention and support.

The staff were all very professional and helpful. They made time to chat and to make sure all our wishes were carried out . Even though at the time of my aunt’s death they were dealing with 12 funerals that day. It must have been a stressful time for all the staff with the extra workload but you felt as though you were the only one who they were dealing with . Truly recommend this firm to anyone .

Rating 5.0
All staff were very kind, professional and helpful; both those who dealt with our arrangements by phone and those providing the service on the day. In these difficult times they must all have been under pressure but we never felt rushed and we were made to feel confident that we were in safe hands as regards the arrangements, and also the necessary health precautions.
We were glad to be able to return to this firm, since they had handled a previous family funeral very professionally.
Response from Brown Fenn & Parker Funeral Directors

We, as the family of Mrs Joan Roberts was extremely pleased with the way the funeral was organised. The staff were kind, considerate and thoughtful. The help given to our older relative at the crematorium and afterwards was second to none. The funeral itself was everything the family wished for, with dignity, care and attention.

I would like to say how grateful I am to Brown Fenn and Parker for the funeral arrangements carried out recently. I received courtesy, helpfulness and efficiency. The staff members in the Sudbury office and at the Culford woodland graveside were all excellent. I couldn't have wished for a better service, thank you.

Brown Fenn and Parker were recently responsible for the funeral arrangements for my mother. I can thoroughly recommend their services. All of the staff I encountered were compassionate and they performed their duties efficiently.

All the staff were very helpful and friendly, they made you feel welcome and it was more like visiting a friend at home rather than an over the top office feeling. Nothing was too much trouble even wearing lilac ties as requested, and they understood our needs and what we were trying to achieve. They explained everything clearly and made a very hard upsetting process more bearable. The memory book they give you at the end is a lovely touch and I will treasure it and add to it.

I would recommend notonly Brown Fenn & Parker but Dignity too, the help and advise I got the first time I called them after loosing my mum was so good.

Thank you so much for all your help and support.
