The team at Hodgson & Sons ensured that all went well on the day of my Father's funeral and everything on the run up to the day went well with all queries and requests handled quickly and efficiently.
Both Katherine, who organised everything and Gary and the team on the day of the service are a credit to the business and I would reccomend Hodgson's to anyone in need of their services.
Response from Hodgson & Sons Funeral Directors
We are very proud of our team and the care they give and it means the world when we hear from the families that we have looked after. I am glad that all of your wishes and requirements were carried out by the team as you had requested. Thank you for this positive recommendation, it is greatly appreciated.

I would like to thank Hodgson & Sons for the excellent way in which they carried out the arrangements for my Aunt’s funeral on Thursday, 4th March 2021.
Trying to deal with the necessary arrangements at the hospital and the following procedures when you live seventy miles away is not easy, particularly with the current Covid restrictions. However, the help and understanding received throughout made it so much easier and I felt confident that my aunt was in safe hands
I must say a special thank you to Katherine for the way in which she kept me informed of progress in a gentle and sympathetic manner. From making the arrangements for the floral tribute, which was absolutely perfect, to the choice of music to enter and exit, which was very appropriate. The Webcast worked perfectly too and was appreciated by family unable to attend.
Response from Hodgson & Sons Funeral Directors
It means a great deal when people take the time to share their experience and to highlight individuals in the team who have made a difference. Your family continues to be in our thoughts and we are honoured to have been able to give you the service you needed.

Katherine could not have been more helpful. All my questions were answered quickly and advice given where needed. Very compassionate and a pleasure to deal with. Steve and his team on the day of the funeral were respectful and professional. Considering the difficulties of the pandemic I was very impressed and have no hesitation in giving a five star rating.
Response from Hodgson & Sons Funeral Directors

Mona at Hodgson and Sons took all the load of organising my uncle's funeral off me and I really appreciated it. She laid all my tasks out clearly and handled the rest very professionally, leaving me to look after my Mother. She was very caring and competent, and I would have no hesitation in recommending Hodgson's to anyone.

From start to finish, everything was handled with extreme kindness and dignity, as it had been 12months prior to this at my mother's funeral. All staff were calmly professional, and even went the extra mile (literally) when my sister in law's handbag was inadvertently left in the funeral car!
