On a heartbreaking day for us, I can only lavish praise on the staff of F W Collins & Son, Bilston. They talked and guided us through everything required and were never in a rush. The entire process of the funeral was dealt with sensitively and very professionally from the first office meeting to the day of the burial. One of the ladies from the office stood outside and bowed as the funeral cars passed on the way to church. We received a quality service and the whole day will live long in the memory.

We were very happy with the efficient service provided by Karen and Carol. They made us feel very well looked after, nothing was too much trouble and the help they provided us at this terrible time was very much appreciated. The funeral went very smoothly and was exactly what we wanted. Craig the funeral director on the day was very kind and explained everything to us clearly. Would highly recommend this company to anyone going through such a terrible time. FW Collins made it a little more bearable. Thank you.

I can give F W Collins no less than 5 stars. They were compassionate and very understanding when discussing such sensitive matters. It was a very upsetting time for me and FW Collins were very caring and wanted the best for my dad as much as I did. I was never worried at all and nothing was ever too much trouble. I cannot thank them enough of how they helped me through such a difficult time. Without any hesitation I would recommend them to anyone. Thank you again and I know my dad would have been proud of how it was all organised.

C guided us through the process in a thoughtful professional way - she was respectful to the situation- the fact that she didn’t try to pretend she knew the deceased but listened to find out about her was an honest way to speak with the family - there are enough people saying insincere words during a difficult time so the honest attitude was appreciated

We were very impressed with the professional way that Carol, Claire and Peter dealt with us in the arrangements before during and after the Funeral of my sister, Miss Jeanette Mann. The caring approach was excellent.

F W Collins provided services for my mother and father, so choosing F W Collins for my sister was made so much easier.
