    Excellent service by the team from start to finish. Mark McGurk made the whole process easy - and Michael, who ran the team on the day (as Mark was unwell), did a great job. The whole team were very considerate and helpful - nothing was too much trouble. It made a difficult day easier for the family.

    Bardgett & Sons did all the necessary arrangements for my 95 year old Mum's funeral/celebration of her life, in a very professional and caring manner. Lorraine Shortt went above the call of duty and my expectations, wearing a yellow tie I really felt she knew exactly what I wanted to achieve. The service by Colin Laidler our chosen Civil Funeral Celebrant was everything we could have hoped for and more. I will always be grateful for the friendly service and personal touches which helped make the day a memorable one for all the family, light and full of sunshine. I think my Mum would have loved it.

    John Bardgett & Sons were chosen for my father’s funeral (Allan Taylor)
    because of the professional yet personal service we received when they did my mother’s funeral (Alice Annie Taylor)
    yet again we were not disappointed they organised everything we requested, my parents had very dignified yet personal funerals. John Bardgett & sons guided us through this emotional process and were on hand every step of the way.

    A very comprehensive and considerate approach to my requirements for my wife’s funeral, the support I received during this very difficult period by Louise the funeral director helped me a great deal. My wife’s family who travelled from Limerick in Southern Ireland commented that it was an excellent funeral service and were very impressed with the way it was conducted.
    Overall an excellent all round service.

    John Bardgett & Sons were the obvious choice to contact about funeral arrangements for my sister.
    This is because the family used their services for both of my parents, as far back as 1959.
    From first notifying them in March 2018 that my sister was dying, through her death in December 2018 to her cremation in February 2019 the standard of care and consideration has been nothing less than excellent.
    As you know I live abroad and knowing that there was someone on the other end of a telephone able to advise, listen and then organise was invaluable. Truly excellent.

    I wanted everything to be right for my mum’s funeral and I could not have asked for more from John Bardgett & Sons. From start to finish everything was perfect. Could not fault them on anything. Highly recommended.

    The support, guidance and advice given by the funeral director Lorraine on the sudden and unexpected death of my husband was superb. She was friendly and empathetic with the family, whilst retaining a professional approach.
    The staff at Oakwood House were all very friendly, helpful and understanding which was very much appreciated at this very difficult time.
    The funeral day and memorial service were perfect and made an unbearable day bearable for the family.
    Thank you once again.

    I cannot recommend John Bardgett & Sons highly enough with a special mention for Louise and Tracy who made an unbearable time bearable with their professionalism and caring attitude. The service we received was outstanding from the very first to the last contact. Thankyou for making our lives that little bit easier at such a sad time.

    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.

    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.
