From the first visit with Samantha at Crossgate, the process was as smooth and painless as possible.
Communication was fantastic throughout and the care given to my Mam and the support given to us couldn't be better.
The day of the funeral ran without a hitch, and the aftercare including the memory book was great.
R S Johnsons are a great team. Would recommend them to anyone
