    I was very pleased with the service I received from Jerry at W S Harrison & Son Forest Hall for the funeral of my late Mam Margaret Borrowdale. All of the staff I dealt with were very kind and understanding at this difficult time, and nothing was too much trouble for them.

    From the moment we were introduced to our Funeral Director, we were treated with compassion and respect. The care and attention to detail that was afforded to ourselves and our late Mum was exceptional. From the beginning to the day of Mum's funeral our Funeral Director, Celebrant and the staff at your Forest Hall branch were second to none - thank you for helping us to celebrate the life of an amazing lady - our Mum.
