Gill, Ian and the team were so kind and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble and they provided excellent professional support throughout. Any queries we had were answered promptly and they guided us through every step. Sarah the Celebrant provided an excellent service.

I have no hesitation in recommending B C Bakers & Son.

I cannot thank Sharon, Gill and Ian enough for their kindness and compassion during our sad time.
From the point of first contact right the way through they have been exemplary in their service and have gone above and beyond in many’s ways helping sort some difficult issues other agencies caused.
The day of the funeral went so well, everything just came together and flowed nicely - a day my Uncle would have enjoyed and been proud of.
Thank you so much for all your hard work, you really made a difference to my family and I can’t thank you enough.
Kindest regards to you all

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
