    I chose to use W G Rathbone in Stratford having read the reviews of other users who sang their praises. From start to finish I found their staff professional, efficient and responsive to our questions and wishes as a family. They were helpful throughout. I dealt with several members of staff but principally with Debbie and Martin. I have no hesitation in recommending them.

    From our very first phone call until the day of my mother's funeral, the help and support provided by W G Rathbone was first class. Sarah, who was guiding and helping us through the service and proceedings, was both competent and professional; on the day itself, she managed to combine both dignity and respect, with compassion and friendship.

    Every one we had dealings with were kind, caring, compassionate and most helpful in anything and everything we needed help with, during the arrangements and on the actual day of the Service.

    This was our first Funeral we have had to arrange, and were helped and explained things very clearly and efficiently.

    Would highly recommend Rathbone Funeral Directors - Stratford. It made a sad, upsetting time more bearable.

    Many Thanks to everyone.
