    All details were fully explained to us and we were kept informed at all times. Lorraine was very caring and professional. Everything provided was of the highest standard. On the day of the funeral we were given the utmost respect and Lorraine pacing the funeral car and bowing respectfully really added to our gratitude. The order of service photographs looked great and the service itself went very well. Follow up was also of the highest standard. We can recommend Bardgett and Sons without reservation.

    Bardgett provided a caring, supportive service which helped the family greatly through a difficult time.

    Funeral Director Lorraine was excellent providing good advice and support in a professional yet caring and thoughtful manner. All staff met were there to help.

    The funeral day went as planned with a remembrance service exceeding expectation, thanks in part to the organisation in the background by Bardgett.

    Your staff provided a fully professional service in what was a difficult time prior to Christmas.Lorraine was able to tailor the complete process and service to our exact requirements. She showed us a great deal of empathy which was welcome at the time. We could not have asked for a nicer person.

    All in all we must thank you again for all your assistance.

    The help and support I received made this difficult time easier. The funeral director made sure we had exactly what we wanted. Nothing was too much trouble and she went out of her way to make sure everything went smoothly. Everyone I spoke to was kind, helpful, professional and supportive.

    From the first phone call through to the funeral service, they were so supportive and dealt with all aspects with a dignity but also a deep knowledge of how to support people at difficult times. They took the weight off our shoulders when it was needed most, and made sure that they asked the right questions, regarding the detail, to ensure that it was an occasion to be proud of, however sad.

    The funeral was prepaid by my late father and everything went without a hitch.Unfortunately he passed away in hospital and one telephone call is all that was needed to set the wheels in motion.We didn't need to worry about a thing, everything was dealt with in a dignified and sensitive manner.

    Very good service overall. Before and after my mother's death I was able to speak to one of the funeral directors without a prior appointment, and the senior member of staff who handled the cremation (Eric) was calm and very thorough.
    The ceremony went well and the practicalities were handled efficiently.

    The service was very professional and we felt well supported throughout the process. Having not had experience of arranging a funeral before it removed the stress at a difficult time. The funeral director couldn't have been more helpful in ensuring arrangements were made in line with our wishes.
