Brilliant service.
Response from J Gorringe & Son Funeral Directors
Thank you for your 5* review and lovely comments.
Rating 5.0
Gorringes provided a respectful, polite and dignified service to me. All aspects of my requests for my husband's funeral were attended to with great care for detail and I cannot rate or thank the whole team at Gorringes enough, but especially Paul. The whole process was made as painless as possible and I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone needing their services.

At the time of my wife's death I had not chosen a funeral director. J Gorringe services were made known to me by a friend and neighbour whose son had passed away 4 years earlier, and sadly too his wife had died recently. He was using this service again, and I requested details so that I to could make the necessary arrangements for my wife. The funeral director was very approachable, and forwarded me the required details so that I could discuss the arrangements with my son and daughter. All three of us made our choices and contacted the funeral director to proceed. We were all thankful for all the arrangements made, and the service on the day was very meaningful to all that attended, and those who saw the service on the webcast. J Gorringe & Son Funeral Directors is the place to go to for these requirements, you will not be disappointed.

Paul and his team at Gorringe's are absolutely first class. Paul supported us throughout the time leading up to the funeral and made sure that everything that was needed was in place. He handled all the arrangements with great professionalism, sensitivity and discretion. Paul helped us find a videographer so that we could live-stream the service and although there were only seven of us in church, another 60 or 70 joined the service from home, from across the UK and in Canada. Given all the restrictions that were in place because of Covid, it really could not have been done better. We owe an immense debt of gratitude to Paul and his team and I would have no hesitation in recommending Gorringe's.
Response from J Gorringe & Son Funeral Directors

During these difficult times Paul and his team provided an excellent service throughout. From collecting Dad from home right through until the funeral all staff carried out their duties in a caring compassionate way. Paul organised and provided a first class funeral service, and although it was a very sad day with Paul's help and guidance it is a day we will remember with happy memories.
I would always recommend J Gorringe & Son

Tony and all of the staff at J Gorringe & Son were extremely kind and considerate, nothing was too much trouble and the service we received from them was second to none. At the worst possible time in our lives they did their utmost to make things as easy as possible and I really appreciate how they looked after mum, I knew she was in safe hands with them.

We received an excellent service throughout the whole process. All queries were answered sensitively and quickly either online or by phone, we never felt anything was too much trouble and were taken through the whole process with care, patience and sensitivity. At a very difficult time Anghus in particular made everything that much easier and put us at ease by making sure we knew what was happening every step of the way. As a family we would highly recommend your services knowing that others going through the same stressful time of losing a loved one will be supported to the highest degree just as we have.
Response from J Gorringe & Son Funeral Directors

I was treated with great respect and sympathy during a very traumatic time. I can’t thank everyone enough for answering my questions and updating me on the process from my initial phone call to the funeral.
