Really can't speak highly enough of the service we received from everyone at R S Scott. I was unfortunate enough to have both parents pass away in a very short space of time and thankfully the staff at R S Scott were there to help me and my family through such a traumatic time. A special thanks has to go to Jerry and Donna for there kindness and support through it all.

At such a difficult time it's so reassuring to know that you are being looked after from the beginning to the end.
The staff at wallsend have been brilliant,I must talk about Robert particularly,he has been so helpful,patient and nothing was a problem. Leading up to the funeral he would ring regularly to make sure everyone was ok.
I believe he has made this process so much easier to deal with. I would have no hesitation to advise anyone else going through this awful time to get in touch with Scotts.
