    I was very impressed at the compassion and professionalism shown by all the Grimmett & Timms staff. Particular thanks need to go to Vicki and Sarah who showed real commitment to their work and could not be faulted for how they treated my family.

    I was very impressed with the professionalism of all the staff at Grimmett and Timms. From the first appointment I was supported in making decisions and was able to sort everything out for my mother's funeral including a visit by family members to the Chapel of Rest. The latter was a particularly difficult visit but my mum had been attended to in a very caring way,so I need not have worried. The funeral itself was well organised and arranged and the staff who attended on that day, including the driver of the funeral car, were sensitive and very helpful. I chose to use Grimmet and Timms for my mum's funeral because they had been my funeral directors of choice for my father's funeral, over twenty years ago. I chose them then because they were a local firm. They still have the same sense of responsibility to their clients that they had then and I cannot thank them enough for helping me and my family through this difficult time.

    Our Funeral Arranger, Vicky, was amazing from start to finish. She was incredibly supportive to both my brother and I throughout the whole process and showed a genuine interest in Dad and the kind of person he was. She advised appropriately, never forcing a view or opinion, but gently guided us throughout a series of sensitive and difficult decisions. Despite dealing with many families, I am sure, she always made us feel as though we were the most important people she was managing.
    On the day, our Funeral Director Sarah, was equally as amazing. She made us feel that there was no rush and allowed us to take our time in saying our goodbyes. She ensured the whole service ran smoothly and that our wishes were carried out to the letter, having contacted me before to clarify all of this.
    These two ladies made, what was a very difficult time for the family, more manageable and they contributed greatly to making sure that Dad had the best send off imaginable. They are professional but with a very warm and human touch. I could not recommend them highly enough.
