Thank you to Grimmett & Timms for helping to make a very sad occasion more bearable. Special thanks to
Vicky for her initial perceptive and observant meeting with our family, even bringing a smile to our faces and for her loving kindness in her care for our dear Dennis as he lay in the Chapel of Rest. You have a rare and special gift Vicky. Also our sincere thanks to Sarah and the team of bearers/drivers for their professionalism and Sarah's thoughtful care as she met our family and friends and for her kind guidance and instruction both at the funeral and the burial.

I would like to thank Grimmett and Timms for providing a thoroughly professional service for the funeral of my mom.

From the very first contact I couldn't fault them. They were truly wonderful both emotionally and practically and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending them to anyone. I would certainly use them again in the future.

Rating 5.0
The services provided by Vicky and Sarah was second to none. We were made to feel at ease at such a difficult time and were dealt with in an extremely caring manner. The only downside I would say was that when collecting my father's ashes from the office earlier this week, the lady (who we had not met before and who did not introduce herself so I do not have her name), made a comment that the ashes were very heavy, and 'he must have had big bones'. Totally inappropriate for the occasion, which my mother was already finding very stressful.

Grimmett and Timms were absolutely amazing, from the very first to the last communication we had with them. They were there for us emotionally as well as professionally whenever we needed them. Without them we’d never have been able to give my Nan the send off she wanted. They are an absolutely amazing team and need more recognition for what they do.

Sarah, Karon & Vicky are without a doubt a credit to Grimmett & Timms we were treated with upmost respect and kindness during a very difficult time.

My family have used the services of Grimmett and Timms for nearly forty years and last July I approached them with regards to assisting my brother and I with the funeral arrangements of my late father. It is a difficult and emotional period for those arranging the funeral, especially when having to make decisions. The staff at Grimmett and Timms were warm, caring and supportive; we felt that nothing was too much trouble for them, especially when we couldn't make up our minds over certain aspects of the funeral. The staff would contact us with regular updates, to ascertain whether there was anything we needed to discuss and most importantly just to provide support and kind words. The funeral arrangements went smoothly, with a representative overseeing the day, gently and discreetly guiding the family throughout the day.
Ten months later, I had to arrange my late Uncle's funeral and I had no hesitation in returning to Grimmett and Timms for the same. Once again, I received a wonderful service from Grimmett and Timms' employees.
Thank you.

I found the Funeral Arranger assigned to me very polite, approachable and accommodating. The Funeral Arranger went above and beyond their duty by personally taking my flowers from the Crematorium and taking them to the Church in Stoneleigh for my friends interment and by passing by my home to drop off the Scatter Urn. I would recommend using Grimmett & Timms.

Following the recent passing of my brother I chose Grimmett and Timms/ dignity to provide a service I knew new little about. All the staff I came into contact with treated the whole family with respect. the service and advise we received was second to none nothing was to much trouble for them even when I had to change arrangements at times. On the day of the funeral they made it so personal to us which helped at a very stressful time. I would recommend any one to use them.

From the first meeting Vicky has been very helpful and reassuring to us as a family in the loss of a dear wife and mother. The team on the day of the funeral were very professional and it was good that Martin, the funeral director, took the time and trouble to ring on the day before to check on last minute details, including possible delays caused by temporary traffic lights!

It was handled with compassion and care. I was kept informed right up until the day of the funeral. I was arranging this from 70 miles away and after the first visit to Coventr,y when requirements were discussed with Vicky, it was all managed via telephone and email. The service itself was handled very well and very professionally. Even though one member of staff was unexpectedly taken ill before the actual funeral, which put pressure on others, it was still managed very well. This is the second time that I have had to use these services in the last 8 months and on both occasions a very sad process has been made bearable. .
