This is sadly the second time we have had to use Gorringe and Son but that says something.... we were so impressed with our first encounter with them that we went back again when it was required and will do in the future. The service we received from Paul was respectful, informative, friendly and reassuring. He was approachable in all the dealings we had with him as were all the other staff members that we encountered. Thank you for making a tough time considerably easier, we did appreciate it. Many thanks, Billie

Paul Weightman of Gorringe's arranged my father's funeral. Paul was always kind, professional, efficient, knowledgeable, considerate, understanding and patient. The funeral service itself ran perfectly. I hope not to be arranging another funeral in the near future but will return to Gorringe's without hesitation.

Paul and his team were respectful, knowledgeable and professional, and nothing was too much trouble. My mum had a Dignity funeral plan , which at a time when emotions are high, was such a relief, made things much easier for us and we knew she got to have what she wanted, and Paul and his team carried it out to the letter, would highly recommend.

I can not recommend Anghus and the staff at Gorringes highly enough, they were kind, caring and compassionate leading to and during my Mother-in Law's funeral. Anghus took care of everything, including all the little things that you don't know about when organising a funeral for the first time. Gorringes provided a first class service and they listened to our family's wishes making the service a perfect send off for my late Mother-in-Law. Thank you, Anghus and Gorringes

Paul was very professional and I felt at ease discussing the arrangements with them. I felt like they were part of our family and made everything seem so simple. I wanted the funeral to be a celebration of my husbands life and I had a couple of requests from ‘outside the box’ which Paul was more than happy to oblige with.
I would definitely recommend Gorringes to anyone needing their services.

Incredibly good service from Gorringe's. From start to finish they were professional, compassionate and easy to work with. Never had any worries about any part of their work, at any time. Always happy to help answer any questions that I had, and on the day of the funeral they were just amazing.
