This was my second time using Jonathan Walker Funeral Directors and as before they were compassionate, caring and understanding of what we as a family required. Every detail was dealt with in a very professional way but the staff never lost sight of the fact we were grieving for our loved one. The financial side of the funeral was clearly and tactfully dealt with. Any suggestions made by the Jonathan Walker staff only enhanced the arrangements. The actual funeral and subsequent burial of the ashes could not have gone better. At this most distressing of times,the service given by Jonathan Walker Funeral Directors was excellent.
