The team have handled our situation superbly providing the support we required at such a difficult time. Stephen, Stuart and Lee have all been compassionate, considerate and understanding when explaining and discussing both the formal aspects and our own private requirements. Their availability was given without intrusion at all times providing calm and reassurance throughout.

Leigh is an absolute credit to the business. From start to finish she handled everything in a very calm soothing and professional manner which made this not so nice event much more manageable. I would have given 6 stars but there are only 5

A little bit disappointed after cancelling a second car i was then casually offered it again?
Response from Derek Moss Funeral Directors
Thank you for your 4* rating and comments. We are sorry to hear of your concerns regarding the second car. We believe this would have been discussed during the call we made to you on the day prior the funeral. This call would have been to ensure that your needs were fully met on the day and to check you did not require any additional services. We apologise if this was upsetting to you. If you wish to discuss this is more detail, please contact the Client Relations department directly on 0800 731 0655. Thank you once again for your review.

The funeral director and his staff in Shiney Row were extremely accommodating, caring and respectful. The funeral director was very helpful, supportive and reassuring throughout the whole process, keeping in daily contact. His knowledge of the local community ensured a very personal service, tailored to the specific needs of our family circumstances. A difficult time was made much easier by the friendly, professional and efficient service we received. We would highly recommend the local service to others. Thank you....

The service provided was excellent; from the initial telephone call to the post-funeral service provided.
Stephen and the team were in touch regularly providing updates and outlining procedure.
The funeral went very smoothly; from the cortège leaving the house to the post-funeral function.
Graham, who read the eulogy, was also excellent right from his visit through e mailing the eulogy for proof reading and accuracy to the funeral service itself.
The high standard of service provided greatly assisted us coming to terms with my father’s passing.
I would without hesitation highly recommend Derek Moss Funeral Directors.
Many thanks to all at their office.
