As a family we would like to thank Maria, Viv and Steven for their kindness and care in arranging our son's funeral and helping us at a distressing time. We travelled from 125 miles away for a personal interview and then further arrangements were made online. The funeral was exactly as we wanted it to be. Thankyou

I've lost loved ones before, but never had the sole responsibility of arranging a funeral and following my loved ones wishes. I didn't know where to start!!
The staff at Gibbs immediately lifted the "weight off my shoulders" by breaking the whole process down into tiny do-able steps, guiding me along the way. Amy went above and beyond her role, and by the time the funeral day arrived, I felt she knew our beloved Step dad well.
Amy got to know him, through really listening and helping me with the arrangements. So much so that even the directors on the day had jazzy ties on to match my step dads love of "rock and roll".
Nothing was too much trouble. A friendly, respectful team who will do you and your loved one proud....as they did me. My stepdad got the day he deserved for his final journey, thankyou! xx

Recently had my grandads funeral
Roy bates, samantha was my first contact with Gibbs, and from day one she became a rock in dealing with all the arrangements advising and organazing the whole ceromony from start to finish. I felt i could ring her any time with anything small on my mind, i also would like to say Steve led the funeral in on the day and he also contacted me to go through proceedings from start to finish. I would like to say a very Big THANK YOU to samantha and all at Gibbs. Tracey.

very efficient and thoughtful with dignity. helpful and understanding all ways there to help with problems you may get. We were kept informed how things were going and when I went to see my wife she looked as if she was just asleep on the settee which was very comforting for me.

The service provided by G Gibbs (Scott Arms branch) was excellent. Samantha Handley, who dealt with myself and my family was very helpful, and made the funeral arrangements and planning go really smoothly. Samantha was also very helpful in arranging visits to the Chapel of Rest and seeing my late father sleeping in peace. The funeral service itself was absolutely beautiful and Mark who was the driver or in charge of pall-bearer was very nice and he made myself and my immediate family feel comfortable at this very sad time.
I would highly recommend this place, if anyone is looking for a good quality funeral directors, who show care and support their clients, this is the place for you.
I can't thank G Gibbs enough for organising such a beautiful service, and my biggest thanks go to Samantha Handley who was very friendly and was always very reliable whenever myself and immediate family needed to schedule a visit.

The name of company Dinity Funeral Service has say it all. We finds it hard dealing with our feeling lost someone dearest to us and Dignity Funeral has give us the service as smoothly as it process.
The staff has always been so helpful and give me a prompt and professional advise through out the service.
If any time anyone’s needs this kind of service I think I would sincerely recommend Dignity Funeral Service to them. I think what we need is a Dignity way of resting in peace and helping the family to feel at ease that they have done it all for their love one.
