    Staff at Whitley Lodge branch were incredibly professional and respectful throughout the process. They dealt with my late husband with care and compassion and supported me at every step. It made a very distressing situation easier to deal with.

    Everything was conducted in an efficient yet pleasant and considerate manner, reducing much of the stress from a difficult time. The advice on pricing was much appreciated and a pleasant surprise in view of recent television publicity.

    I cannot thank them enough for the service they have provided for me and my family at this most difficult, confusing and highly emotional period in our lives. Each member of this team have been proffessional, kind and curteous and I always felt went that they went out of their way to accommadate our needs and to offer advice. This is always a difficult time but there are periods in the grief that laughter helps, I found the team were able to strike that balalnce for us. They also provide excellent aftercare and you have the option of popping in any time for a chat and a cuppa, that is so welcome and comfortating to know that and that it is meant. A wonderful team of people.

    We found Dignity excellent from start to finish for my father's funeral. From the initial first meeting to interring the ashes. We were kept fully updated throughout, nothing was a problem. Rob was fantastic, very friendly and reliable, we felt extemely reassured throughout the process. We were very impressed with the memory book provided after the funeral, it was very well thought out, well designed and Rob made sure he didn't miss anything out, it is a lovely sentimental keep sake and something we didn't expect. Rob also arranged and attended the interrment of the ashes, he really does go above and beyond to help people during a very difficult time. We would not hesitate to recommend Rob and his team at Dignity to our family and friends and can not thank Dignity enough for everything they have done for us.
