    My experience with Dignity Funerals and all the staff in managing this funeral enabled the service to proceed very smoothly and professionally.

    The interest shown by Jerry,Funeral Director, and his helpful suggestions and willingness to execute the wishes of
    the deceased person made it possible that the funeral proceeded perfectly.

    The only thing that needs addressing is that when sorting out prices etc there should be a question as to whether the grave in question that will need to be opened up has a kerb stone in it or not. If it has it adds £400 to the bill to remove it first. This wasn’t asked in our situation and only came to light the day before the burial. This is not a time you need to be told this so it would be easier all around if this was asked at first stage.

    Thank you for your review.

    I am sorry that the question relating to the grave having a kerb set was not asked during the funeral arrangements. Your feedback is much appreciated.
