Reviews of our services
She gave all the details in a clear and unambiguous manner. Everything I was told happened and there was never any doubt as to what would happen and when.
On the day Holly and staff were excellent. Everything went to plan. Les (The Vicar)delivered a lovely service and a warm tribute to Mom. We could not have had a better funeral for Mom and send our grateful thanks for the help we received throughout the whole process. I would highly recommend this company for their dedication to us, (the client) in our time of grief. Thank you Dignity you gave us a perfect funeral for Mom. A prepaid plan is definitely worth thinking about.
Whatever our requests, Carol always answered our queries in a very timely manner.
Carol certainly made what is such a difficult time, much easier for us which we were very thankful to her for.
Her persona what she gave off came across as friendly and helpful. on the day of the funeral everything went according to plan and with dignity and care for my loved one
I would highly recommend your service to others.
Thank you so much.
