This was my first time having to arrange a funeral, and they made it as easy as is possible considering the circumstances. They were always respectful, always thoughtful, and always considerate of what I might want or need. They clearly care about their service, and did their best to ensure it was as smooth as it could be too, with an attention to detail that really made the whole thing very personal. It was if they knew what you wanted before you even asked. We all thank the staff from the bottom of our hearts, we couldn't have asked for any better.
