    Every member of staff that we had contact with was extremely professional, courteous and helpful. We were entirely supported throughout the whole process, and we were kept fully informed at all times. We never felt rushed or pushed to make a decision, all of our wishes were carried out to the letter and we were very pleased with the excellent and very personal service we received.

    On the day of the funeral, Lorraine was fabulous. She took care of everything for us, nothing was too much trouble, and we are extremely grateful for her kindness, help and support.

    From start to finish my mother's funeral ran smoothly. The office staff I contacted on the phone were sympathetic and helpful, as was the driver on the day. The Funeral Director was considerate, efficient and professional. He made sure all arrangements were in place and was patient when we delayed in making decisions about details. He ensured my father was looked after before and after the service. I was contacted during the days following the service, to ensure we were coping alright
