    At a very difficult time, I was guided through the process by Mark and Debbie. Everyone was extremely sympathetic and professional and the arrangements for the funeral went very smoothly.

    From my first contact with staff following the death of my mother I was very impressed with their professionalism, understanding and how easy and smoothly Louise made all of the arrangements for us at such a difficult time. The telephone contact I had with the office staff at both Newcastle and Ponteland office to discuss minor details was also exceptionally good, friendly and very helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. The service was exactly as we hoped it would be. Thank you.

    I found the service very friendly, helpful and caring at what is a very difficult time. I liked the fact that I could pop into the office and the chapel of rest in Ponteland at any time. I appreciated the words of comfort, advice and support I received. Everything was done according to my preference and of course according to my husband's wishes. I liked the extra touches which showed you were very willing to help and go the extra mile like the hankies handed out in the car, the cards distributed around the pews in church and the negotiating with the Crematorium to get a suitable date which was difficult around Christmas time.

    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
