The service was grand, however, to be fair I think any reputable funeral director would have done the same.

That said, the daily phone calls from Neil to let me updated and to check how the family was and to see if he could help in any way at such an extremely emotional time for our family was fantastic. They meant so much. Thank you to the team and Neil in particular.
Response from Derek Moss Funeral Directors

The staff at the Silksworth, Sunderland branch were lovely from beginning to end. Neil who looked after us throughout the process was caring and considerate, often calling to see how we were doing. He is a credit and asset to your team, and we thank him very much. My dad was well looked after at the Chapel of Rest, and we were kept updated on all parts of the process. Tina who works in the Chapel was also lovely. A very sad event, was made easier by your thoughtful and kind staff. Thank you

Although it was a very sad occasion, we were treat with great respect by Stuart he helped us through all the arrangements as we hadn’t done anything like this before , we were helped with flowers, the service and songs, the chapel was lovely and Tina was a great help and looked after Jackie, the service itself was Second to none , most of all the chance to talk about our stories of Jackie round the table and even have a few laughs while arranging her service was a great help, all in all I couldn’t have asked for better guidance than I got from Dignity funerals and all the staff, thank you all .
