The care, compassion and professionalism could not have been faulted. This is a difficult time made worse through Covid of course, however they did their very best to make things easier. I felt that they went that extra mile to help me and it worked.

I think that Funeral Directors are overlooked when we praise the NHS and care staff, they do an amazing job with no recognition.

Superb service from Kim, Michelle, Martin and his team. In these difficult and unusual times my godfathers funeral was first class. Possibly a very strange thing to say but I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend their services. All the mourners agreed with me. Nothing was too much trouble Well done to the team and my thanks once again

Friendly and professional service with a caring and empathetic approach. Good choice in packages and can be tailored to suit needs. Everything explained well and easy to book and request chapel of rest, flowers etc. Kept in contact with family throughout the arrangements and offered relevant info and support as needed. Made a very sad and emotional day a little brighter, being in the hands of such a great company.

I cannot fault the excellent and professional service that all the staff at W G Rathbone's provided from my initial telephone call to the funeral of my stepmother itself. Kim was extremely helpful and supportive, keeping me informed by e mail while I was away in New Zealand. I must also mention Debbie, Sara and Martin for their help.

Our lovely mum past away on 20 Januay 2019 the very next day I met with Kim Crombie at Rathbone's Leamington Spa all I can say is thank god for Kim she was so compassionate towards me and my sisters Frances and Bernie.
We were absolutely shattered and Kim held our hands literally and helped us to somehow pull everything together on behalf of our amazing mum. Kim did this with kindness, understanding never ever rushing us always with tissues near by and of course lots of tea and biscuits.
As a family we will be forever grateful for the lovely decent human being that is Kim Crombie.
I would also like to give a mention to Martin the chief pall bearer again he showed all the family so much respect and was so considerate and kind to us a wonderful person to have around you on one of the saddest days of our lives.
Massive thank you to Rathbone's (Leamington Spa)

From the moment my Brother and I walked into the office and met Kim we had a warm and friendly welcome followed by excellent advice. All the arrangements went to plan and the funeral for my mother was just as she had wanted. We cannot praise Rathbone’s team highly enough. Our thanks go to everyone involved for making a difficult time go so smoothly
