    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. .

    Vicki , Sarah and the staff all treated the family especially mum with great empathy and showed a lot of love. Vicki helped with preparations beforehand. She took worry and a big work load off us. Nothing was too much trouble. She was understanding and caring. Sarah who led the funeral party showed so much love to my mum at this extremely difficult time. I can not fault anything

    From the start we were treated with respect and professionalism. Everything was explained clearly and advice sensitively given, though never insisted upon. The staff had a light but compassionate touch and I especially appreciated the follow up phone calls to me personally and to other professionals involved in our father's untimely death. Everything went very smoothly.
