From the first contact, the staff were sensitive, kind, generous, understanding, and responsive. As well as addressing efficiently the obvious matters relating to our mother's funeral arrangements, there were numerous occasions when the designated funeral director and his colleagues went 'above and beyond' what we might reasonably have expected of them. We deeply appreciated their care and attention throughout the process and would recommend them highly.

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.
Response from W S Harrison & John Bardgett & Sons Funeral Directors
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.
