At every step of the way Longhurst just made things happen. Everything was handled with care and dignity and the day went incredibly smoothly. I had decided to be the celebrant and was worried about getting all the music right but it was patiently explained and was actually remarkably simple. Highly recommended.

I have nothing but praise and admiration for all the staff at Longhurst. At a time when the closest are at a loss their kindness and understanding was incredible. They never over imposed themselves but were always their to help and guide through a process that hopefully we only encounter a few times in our lives.
So on behalf of the whole family, Thank you.

The team at Longhursts provided our family with wonderful service at a really difficult time. The staff member at the office was very kind and sympathetic but also highly responsive and efficient. The funeral director who together with his team was present on the day of the funeral was extremely reassuring at a time when we were all feeling a bit tense and apprehensive. His phone call to me the day prior was also a very considerate touch. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Longhursts to anyone needing funeral services and support. Thank you all very much.

We used Longhursts 15 years ago when my father passed away and they treated him and us with great dignity and respect so I had no hesitation in contacting them again when sadly my mother passed away. Their staff were respectful and kind and Terri was very helpful in sorting out everything in these strange times of covid restrictions. Due to those restrictions we were not able to have as many people as we would have liked at the funeral at our chosen crematorium but a recording was arranged for those who could not be there to celebrate my mother's life with us. The service was as 'happy' as any funeral could be and Jackie and her team on the day were very kind and supportive. I would certainly recommend Longhursts.

We were very satisfied and pleased with the arrangements for my sister's funeral. The staff were kind and courteous and everything went to plan. The minister was lovely and we would like him to know how happy we were with the service. I am sure you are aware of how difficult these things can be with various relatives wanting different levels of religious input, but everyone was happy with the result - a good balance was achieved. The memory box was a lovely touch and we have already put lots of bits in it. Thank you.
