    We have used these funeral directors twice now and have been really impressed with the service from start to finish. Nothing was too much trouble and even special requests were dealt with courteously and efficiently. An excellent service all round.

    Arranging a funeral is daunting but from the moment we approached Roberts and Brain they made it so much easier for us. Emma was so respectful and reassured us as to what they were able to help which was almost everything to do with the funeral. They delivered on everything they said they would and in the timescales agreed, kept in touch as to progress and on the day of the funeral ensured everyone was treated with dignity and respect. The customer service provided was second to none from all their staff and we are so grateful for the high quality service provided and the informal support given at such a difficult time. Thank you!
