Reviews for John Bardgett & Sons Funeral Directors in Gateshead
Mark and Stacey were always available and replied to any questions very promptly.
They helped me to work through the stages required to arrange my Mothers funeral arrangements.
They arranged my Sisters funeral a year before and I was happy for them to look after my Mothers arrangements.
Very professional and also caring and friendly, Louise contacted me to check I was ok and if I needed anything on a regular basis.
I’m single and Louise offered me her arm as we walked in and out which was a huge comfort for me, I appreciated her support so much.
Three more of my family have signed up for the pre paid funeral, it takes a lot of the stress away when something happens to a loved one.
Thank you so much
many thanks to all of you.
Nothing was too much trouble and went the extra mile in organising and making sure that our mothers wishes were honored. Lorraine had a very warm caring personality supporting us every step of the way. The service (amidst the Covid-19 pandemic) was nothing short of what we could have wanted even within these circumstances and the speech given at our mothers interment ceremony was both heartfelt and demonstrated that she had really connected with us all.
We can not speak highly enough of Lorraine and her professionalism. A lady we will always remember for making what was a very hard time that much easier. Thank you again for everything.
The care we were given by Lorraine was greatly appreciated
We would highly recommended your company
