Very caring, considerate and professional. I would recommend this company, after having used them for the burial of a dear Aunt of mine; where all of the above applied. In particular, Louise and Jackie were very helpful

The family was very impressed with the friendliness, kindness and exceptionally efficient service provided by Bardgett’s after the loss of our dearest Dad. Each and every member of staff we dealt with was compassionate and caring, which means such a lot at this sad time. At every stage we were kept informed and the funeral service was all we could want for Dad. Thank you very much.

Everything from beginning to end was sensitively handled. I could not have managed the organisation my aunts cremation without the help of everyone at John Bardgett. Although my main point of contact was Sam, whoever I spoke to at JB was just amazingly kind, patient and helpful.

many thanks to all of you.

My sister and I flew from overseas to farewell our mother who passed away recently. She had a funeral plan already organised with John Bardgett & Sons Funeral Directors. We were fortunate to have Lorraine as our funeral director. Lorraine did the most amazing job at making my younger sister and I feel extremely cared for, welcome and reassured every step of the way in a country that was quite foreign to us!

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.

We were very pleased from start to finish with the funeral arrangements. The staff helped us greatly as we had not done a funeral before. There wasn't anything they couldn't of helped us with to make the funeral day go as smoothly as possible. They were just a phone call away had we needed anything to ask. Thank you so much

My mother had a Funeral Plan but I didn't know what she had arranged. The Funeral Director contacted their office & got the details. Planning the type of service & a poem was straight forward. The eulogy was done by e mail giving us the time we needed to tell our mothers story. I was given time to decide on the music & when Lorraine phoned to ask if I had thought about it she had already a good idea of what I had in mind. The staff at our local Tesco Direct made a collection & presented us with their flower tribute & the staff on duty stood on parade at the front of the store as the funeral cars left from the street. After the service we were given a Rose from the Tribute, a lovely gesture. A memory book that arrived by post was another lovely gesture. There was no negative comments after the funeral & people agreed that it all went well. I can honestly say that the funeral was professional & respectfully done.

Excellent service received at such a sad and difficult time. We couldn't have wished for a better funeral which celebrated my Dad's life and love for life. The service we received as a family, from the initial telephone call, to meeting our Funeral Director, Louise (who was amazing), the lead up to, during and after the funeral service was constantly friendly, caring, professional and dignified. Everyone we spoke to who attended the funeral commented what a wonderful send off Dad had. Thank you so much for helping celebrate his life and making this difficult time so much easier to deal with.

I had help advice and support at every stage. The funeral was carried out exactly as I wanted. My wishes were accommodated really well. On the day the funeral director helped me at every stage. I knew what was going to happen so nothing came as a shock when it happened. I would recommend Bardgett to anyone. I just wish I wasn’t in that situation.
