Obviously organising a funeral comes at a difficult and emotional time so having a professional to guide you is invaluable. In spite of the circumstances I found the people I dealt with at John Bardgett’s to be professional, empathetic, extremely helpful and understanding. It was of great assistance to me that they were able to guide me through the process and to take responsibility for making arrangements with the vicar, putting a notice in the newspaper etc. I thought I would need to do all of this.This certainly made a difficult time for the family easier.
Response from John Bardgett & Sons Funeral Directors
These kind words mean a great deal to the whole team. We always strive to give each family what they need even when times are difficult.

I was really pleased with the sensitivity that Louise and Jane provided whilst handling my mums funeral, nothing was to much trouble for them and they were great at advising us on things that we hadn’t thought of and guiding us through the process.

First class service provided from start to finish from all staff at this sad time. I could not have wished for better treatment, especially Sam, who took me under her wing all the way. Without a doubt I would have not coped as well as I did.
Response from John Bardgett & Sons Funeral Directors
We are very proud of our team and the care they give and it means the world when we hear from the families that we have looked after. Your family continues to be in our thoughts and we are honoured to have been able to give you the service you needed.

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
