What can I say, from our initial call to the actual funeral directors, the service this company give is outstanding. Toni made us feel at ease and was very professional in her advice, and so friendly we felt like we had known her for years. At the chapel of rest she led us in to see our late father and let us take as much time as we needed to say our goodbyes. On the day of the funeral Gareth (I think his name was, I was in such a state I'm not sure) and his team were fantastic, they did all and more than we asked of them and were always very supportive, especially when I in particular was inconsolable. We could not have asked for a better company to look after our father the way that F W Collins and Son did. Even now, 6 weeks after the funeral Toni has been brilliant in her after care support to me and my family. I cannot recommend this company enough, I personally don't think there is another Funeral Directors that come close to the service we had. If there was a hundred star rating, they would get it from us.

Thank you to FW Collins for the way they handled my mother's funeral. Sue, Carol and Gavin were the staff I dealt directly with. They were very caring and professional and went above and beyond to make sure everything went well. I would have no hesitation in recommending F W Collins. Kaye Rastall

An excellent service from start to finish. Carol, in the office, was really helpful in arranging the funeral. She organised everything from the flowers, to the cars, the minister, the obituary in the newspaper and the scattering of the ashes. The funeral was conducted with precision, respect and sensitivity. The lead funeral director was exemplary in the way he managed the whole event

We could not fault at all the level of customer service and compassion we received from Carol when dealing with my Dad's funeral.

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.

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.

Never having arranged a funeral before I was unsure of the procedures and requirements and was nervous about getting things just right. The staff at FW Collins put me at ease straight away and helped me arrange a fitting tribute to my friend. They guided me through everything,the staff in branch and on the day were absolutely first class .

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
