    I can say with my hand on my heart, what a professional, considerate and caring organisation. From the initial telephone call to the final meeting/conversation with the staff at RS Johnson in South Shields they were superb, words are not enough to praise their service and support, nothing was too much trouble and I felt as though they were dealing with me as a person and not another 'customer'. I highly recommend them, at what is, a sad and difficult time.

    From the 1st call to the after care, we received an outstanding service.
    Jamie and his colleges are very professional, compassionate, attentive and everything we requested was dealt with with the same outstanding service.
    Highly recommended, they reduced the stress created from this traumatic and life changing time in our lives.

    We were really happy with the services from R S Johnsons Crossgate for the funeral of my late husband. Nothing was too much bother for them. John kept us informed at every stage . We were also impressed with the rememberance book we received afterwards.

    Staff were all very sympathetic and helpful after the sad loss of my father, they took care of all the necessary arrangements during this difficult time.
    I would recommend them to anyone else looking for a caring and professional funeral director.

    Malcolm and staff were very caring, respectful and nothing was too much for them.
    I asked for a lock of my dads hair and it was presented in a lovely little pouch.
    It’s a lovely thoughtful idea holding a Christmas service for families too.
