    The service provided by this company is second to none. Having dealt with other funeral providers over the past few years
    the staff at this company are excellent. Not only do they guide you through the procedure but make helpful suggestions.
    Nothing is too much for them to do for you. A special thank you must go to Yvonne for her patience and understanding. Mr Scott a true gentleman must be very proud of his staff and company.

    In the planning stages, the immediate lead up to, and on the day of the Funeral the W H Scott team maintained their focus on the needs of the family and bereaved. They were extremely sympathetic and most supportive throughout the whole, difficult and emotionally demanding process. I cannot thank them enough for their help at such a difficult time. A credit to their profession.
