On behalf of myself and my family I would like to thank the staff at Charles Embleton FDs for arranging both my step-dad's and uncle's funeral. Unfortunately we lost both these family members within months of each other and we cannot thank staff enough for their help and support during this difficult period. All staff were extremely sympathetic and Margaret did an exceptional job of organising both funerals. From start to finish she was there to sort out the finer details and regularly contacted us to keep us up to date with funeral plans. I would also like to thank Ann who was our Celebrant, who along with discussions with our family wrote and delivered beautiful eulogies. Both these ladies helped make such unhappy days a lot more bearable through their sympathetic and caring nature. Again, thank you to all the staff at Charles Embleton FDs which I will highly recommend to anyone.

The staff members both at "Sudero", Blue House Lane, Washington and at the Shiney Row sister branch were always helpful, kindly and sympathetic, carefully leading us through the options available and advising appropriately. They are very skilled in gently leading you through the necessary formalities at an emotional time and injecting a much-needed element of humour at just the right moment if it is fitting. A most professional and caring team service. Many thanks.

I can thoroughly recommend this firm, In your time of grief the staff enough were exceptional, sympathetic to our needs, especially Stuart Tate, whose attention to detail, seeing that things ran smoothely etc. was second to none.
On the day many people remarked how dignified the whole experience was.
I would have no hesitation to use this firm to anyone who is in need of this service

From the moment I first contacted you through to and after my brothers funeral I was treat with the utmost respect and dignity. I was guided through the process in a professional manner and felt that most of the pressure was taken off me. I was guided step by step and any requests were honoured without question.
The day of the funeral myself and the mourners were given first class support throughout the ceremony and beyond.
All the staff involved in the arrangements of organising my brothers funeral gave me a 1st class professional service.
A phone call each day just to ask after my wellbeing was a great comforter.
Even after the funeral your staff kept in contact with me to make sure I was coping.
You all made a very hard and sad time more bearable for myself and my family.
