Professional, courteous and kept me informed throughout the funeral arraignments, they were also sympathetic and dealt with queries promptly. They also arraigned the Celebrant, Music and ashes all for very nominal fees which was welcomed. Thankyou all for a a good send-off for my Mother during a difficult time along with C19 pandemic to work through. I would have no hesitation in recommending B C Baker & Son Funeral Directors, they were exemplary through out.

The team at BC Baker and Son have been so professional, helpful and kind to me, I lost my Mother in January and my Aunt last March.
Gill was always there to listen and give words of support to me, which has been so appreciated, while arranging the funeral and visiting Mum in the Chapel of rest.
Also Ian and Les who directed my Aunts burial and my Mothers Cremation with such dignity, and help was always there, if required during the day.
I could not have asked for more.
Thank you.
Stephen.

At a time when our family were falling apart Baker's stepped in and guided us through this minefield as it appeared to us. We have used Baker's twice now, in 2011 when we lost our mum and again in 2019-2020 when we lost our dad. Thankfully daddy had the foresight to organise a Dignity plan which helped loads. I can not praise Baker's enough, especially Gill, who treated us with kindness and care throughout.
Baker's are a totally professional,reliable and caring company that I have no problem in recommending,should you find yourselves in the sad position where your in need of a Funeral Director.
Response from B C Baker & Son Funeral Directors

The service provided was first class the funeral staff were very friendly and helpful and prepared to spend time with myself and the other guests. My only complaint is the pricing ,I chose the basic funeral at £1990 but finished up with essential add ons at £3200.I think this should be made clear in your brochure.
Response from B C Baker & Son Funeral Directors
Thank you for your review. We are pleased to hear that you were satisfied with the service we provided. Our price list details our fees but not fees charged by third parties, ie. crematorium, doctors etc as these are beyond our control - our apologies if there was any confusion.
