From start to finish Dawn helped me and my father through the arrangements for my late grandmother's funeral. There was nothing that Dawn couldn't help us with and she was caring and thoughtful throughout. Dawn made what we thought would be a very difficult and upsetting process a lot easier. Without Dawn and her kindness from start to finish, it would have been a lot harder. Thank you Dawn for all your support and kind words.

My mother's funeral was beautifully arranged with great attention to detail. My thanks to Dawn, Niall and the drivers for their kindness throughout, the day passed perfectly and has left a lasting memory with those who attended and watched the streaming from abroad.It really helped that all the arrangements were perfectly handled by Dawn, which took away the stress and on the day Niall and the drivers ensured everything was directed with thoughtfulness and dignity. The extra touches (memory box) were lovely.

Rating 5.0
Sensitive and caring from start to finish.
The funeral arrangements were well thought out and guidance was given as to what might be included, so that at no time were we at a loss as to what we should do or what may be required of us.
Dawn handled all our decision making without any pressure being placed on us, and expertly and efficiently dealt with everything.
Her recommendation for our Celebrant Abby was perfect and Abby was equally caring both in preparation and in conducting the service.
The funeral itself was conducted with dignity and care. David and the bearers were very smartly attired, the hearse gleaming and David was thoughtful throughout.
We particularly thought the coffin, a woven wicker casket, beautifully made and the flowers exactly as requested.
Overall, a thoughtful, caring and very professional team.

Dawn and the team looked after us my grandmother with exceptional care, offering help and support to us all during a very stressful and upsetting time. My grandmothers funeral was dealt with professionalism and care throughout the planning and on the actual day, no detail was too much.

As a result we were able to give my grandmother of 93 years of age the send off she deserved, even during the pandemic. Having the option of watching the service in real-time online meant my family members overseas and in the UK that were unable to attend could also be part of her send off. Thank you very much from us all X
Response from Frederick W Paine Funeral Directors
Thank you for your thoughtful and detailed review. We know how special each person is and aim to convey this in all aspects of our work from the arrangements to the day of the service. It is comforting to know that the team were there to support you through this time and relieve some of the pressure through guidance and support. It has been a privilege to look after your Grandmother.

Dawn helped me with the arrangements for my relative's funeral with kindness, patience and sensitivity. Everything went very smoothly on the day and we were particularly impressed with the order of service booklet which is a lovely memento. It was also lovely to have the service live streamed for the benefit of friends who were unable to attend in person and I have received very good feedback from them. I would not hesitate to recommend Frederick W. Paine to others.

So grateful to FWP for helping us give our Dad the send off he deserved. Dawn was simply amazing and helped us every step of the way, whether advising on various options or just being a sympathetic ear. Always sensitive and caring, I really can't thank her enough for seeing us through this very difficult time. She took time to get to know more about my Dad and the family and her suggestions always took account of the send off we wanted, including some lovely little touches that we would never have thought of. From choosing the right celebrant to the orders of service, flowers and music, FWP took care of everything. They kept us fully informed, making sure we understood what needed to be agreed at each stage so that we were never rushed into decisions. On the day, the Funeral Director (Niall) was equally attentive and caring and everything worked as planned. Despite Covid restrictions, we were able to create a very personal service for my Dad which, despite the sadness, was ultimately uplifting. FWP were absolutely the right choice for us and I would have no hesitation in recommending them.

They made a difficult and emotional time as simple as it could be ....... Dawn guided me through the whole process, she was professional, kind and patient. Nothing was too much trouble. Any ideas I had (flowers, order of service) Dawn researched and came back with options. If she said she would call or write - then that’s what she did. That all meant a lot. Thank you for helping me though it all.

We found the organisation of all the aspects of our mother's funeral excellent. Very compassionate, patient and clear staff telling us what we needed to do (over the phone), especially our asigned organiser.The service booklet was well organised and efficiently amended when requested. It was good to have the funeral notice and we particularly appreciated the two large photos given to us on the day. The last minute provision of the webcast was much valued by many family and friends. The service went very well and the celebrant and funeral director were excellent. The journeys very smooth. Overall we found your guidance and service during this difficult time very supportive and reassuring. Thank you very much, Isie and Roy Weskin

Sue and Dawn handled our friend's funeral with great professionalism, and dealt with us in a friendly, approachable manner. The arrangements were carried out with the minimum of fuss, and the funeral itself was carried out in a very dignified manner, such that there were many unsolicited comments of appreciation from the people attending. Above all, Sue and Dawn looked after our dear departed friend with great care, for which we are very grateful.

From beginning to end Sue and Dawn guided us through the process and did everything possible behind the scenes to make it go smoothly.

Sue and Dawn handled the funeral arrangements for my late husband so efficiently and thoughtfully. Their kindness and sensitivity in a time of distress, plus their attention to detail when our minds were very occupied elsewhere, were absolutely invaluable. We really did feel that they went the extra mile to plan well and accommodate all our requests, and all the staff on the day were faultless. I would not hesitate to recommend your Kingston Branch.
