I felt that the service from the staff Malcolm and Carol was exceptional. Nothing was a problem they were sympathetic toward us and also a great strength when carrying out the arrangements. Everything went very smoothly and they looked after everything taking away the stress that is often caused with the passing of a loved one. I would also like to say that Andy who carried out the humanist service did a really good reading and gave us much needed comfort at the most saddest time. I would recommend the company to anyone who is looking at their future needs, this company are the best you would ever hope to use.

I found that both Dignity and John at Charles Tait very helpful, they took the stress and anxiety out of the whole process.
John was very attentive and listened to my Fathers wishes and ensured that they were carried out to the letter. He offered his total support throughout the process and contacted me regularly to ensure that everything was OK.
This is now the 3rd time we have used Charles Tait,
Jamie dealt with my Mother 3 years ago and also my Father in law last year, in all cases I could not fault the care and commitment of all the staff at Charles Tait. I am sorry to say I have forgotten the name of the lady who has been there every time I have had to go to the office, she has been absolutely brilliant and very supportive. Also the poor lady who let me in to see my Father at the Chapel of rest, I think I was a quivering wreck but she was very professional and understanding. Thank you very much. Although Thank you doesn't really say how much I really appreciated all of the kindness and help.

Sam was the undertaker who helped me through one of the most difficult things I have ever had to do. She was very professional but at the same time was warm and friendly. I instantly liked her and knew she would do her best for my dad's final journey. She rang when she said she would and her words were always a comfort. I would highly recommend CW Taits Undertakers. If anyone is perfectly suited to a job Sam is.

Myself, sister and our families considered the manner in which Charles W. Tait conducted all aspects of our mothers funeral to be of the highest possible standard. The director John, who coordinated everything, did so in a way which was kind and considerate of our emotions and needs before, during and after the funeral. John organised for Chris to conduct the humanist service. Chris spent a good time with us ensuring he had everything he needed. Our wish was for people to be inspired by the life and memory of our Mam and to leave the Crematorium with a smile on their faces. Chris certainly achieved this. His service was both dignified and sincere and we thank him for this. Also many thanks to all staff at Charles W.Tait, particularly John.
