Reviews for W H Scott & Son Funeral Directors in Birmingham
The funeral itself was beyond expectations really well done.
And the afterservice was brilliant thanks
Information, advice and support given at all aspects of the funeral, staff really helpful and friendly.
Would recommend W H Scott & Son.
As hadnt dealt with dealing with funeral arrangements for a long time I at first felt very daunted but this was made very easy for me so taking a great weight off my shoulders.
We knew what to expect as we had used WH Scott’s the previous year for my mother in law’s service. We had no hesitation in using them again and would recommend them to anyone who may be able to read this review.
At no time were we pushed to choose expensive items and differences were clearly explained.
Yvonne was very helpful and kept me notified at all stages of arrangements as well as checking on how we were.
Everybody we dealt with was caring and compassionate , would definitely recommend the Barnes Hill branch .
First class service as soon as you walk through the door, I delt with the Califoria office and the contact there was supberb in dealing with our situation, help and advice in organising the special day was fantastic on both funerals.
My wife and I were treated as friends by all the members of staff we came intouch with, we even had a follow up phone call after the event - to sum up A VERY VERY good company to deal with giving full attention to every detail.
I would recommend W H Scott to anyone who needs help in this sad time.
On the day of the cremation I knew exactly what the arrangements were and again the whole process was very Covid safe. Staff throughout this have been very attentive and supportive and made a very sad event more bearable.
Every detail of the funeral was carefully and precisely arranged to a completely flawless procedure
A service I have and will continue to recommend to others.
