Everyone I had occasion to speak to bent over backwards to help at what was a most distressing time. I was particularly impressed with Katherine Jinks and the funeral director in charge on the day, whose name sadly escapes me, both of whom made it their priority to ease the pain my family and I were suffering.

Professional and excellent service.

The thought of arranging a funeral was overwhelming but Katherine made this a straightforward and stress-free experience; even going above and beyond in assisting us source specialised vehicles required for a disabled family member so that everyone could attend the funeral.

The day went as smoothly as it could have done and the Funeral Director and staff on the day were very respectful, caring and supportive.

As a family we would recommend E F Edwards and couldn't have asked for more at a very difficult time.

We raised a significant amount of money for our chosen charity with thanks to their online Funeral Notice service.

Thank you.

Arrangements for my mother’s funeral at Sutton Coldfield Crematorium were organised in a professional manner. We wanted a Hunanist service and the Celebrant Edwards recommended was good to work with. He delivered an excellent eulogy and conducted the sevice in a sympathetic and professional manner. All the staff performed their duties with respect.
