We cannot praise Gibbs funeral directors enough from the first telephone call they dealt with us with kindness and compassion. The service we were given was second to none. Pam warty our funeral arranger was most helpful and nothing was to much trouble with the service we received from all the staff meant the funeral went off smoothly. June Cooke and family

As a family whose been through loss on a number of occasions in recent years, we have needed the service of a funeral director quite often. Gibbs were local to where I lived so I used them and were very pleased with the service. With each death I have always returned to Gibbs mainly because they are professional, caring and kept me up to date on everything that was happening from start to finish! They cared! Nothing I asked them was too much. From Karen in the office to Steve and the guys who drove the limousines - nothing was too much trouble and they gave my family and I all the time we needed from start to finish.
A great big thank you to Gibbs West Btomwich.

Unfortunately I have had to organise 2 funerals in 3 months. Both were with Gibbs and both were organised by Karen.

Karen made the process very easy and stress free. I felt supported throughout the process.

On the day both funerals were lead by Steve who was kind and respectful.

Not having had to organise a funeral, I can only say this was a kind and caring service.

It means a great deal when people take the time to share their experience and to highlight individuals in the team who have made a difference. I am pleased that our team looked after you so well. Thank you for entrusting us with the care of another loved one.

Karen kindly looked after us from start to finish as this was the first funeral I had to organise, she made things so much easier for us at this difficult time.
The lads on the actual day were amazing the cars were on time and they organised the flowers and getting us all in with great respect and professionalism
I was also contacted 3 weeks after the funeral to see how we were coping, which I thought was a lovely gesture

Mom had already planned and paid for her funeral so when the moment arrived, we contacted the Dignity call line to arrange for Mom to be taken to Gibbs. The team at Gibbs came and with care and respect and took Mom from her home. We were then helped through the process by Karen. She arranged the appointment to attend and guided us through the plan Mom had made and arranged for any extra's that we required.

Up to the funeral and date and even after, we were looked after by Karen. Keeping us informed of what was happening, what I needed to do and when by. It was the little things but they made a lot of difference.

We were called the day before the service by Steve who said that he would be looking after us on the day and we couldn't have wished for better. He told us what to do and when and even stopped the traffic to allow Mom into the Crematorium for the service, something we know Mom would be chuckling over as she finally got someone to stop the traffic for her.

After the funeral service, we were not rushed or hurried. The car was with us until we wished to return to Mom's house.

All the team were respectful to Mom during her last journey and that was a fitting tribute to our fantastic Mom.

Thank you to team at Gibbs for your help and support during this time.

From having to contact G Gibbs Funeral Directors to let them know my Mum had passed away to the funeral itself and the collection of Mum’s ashes, they could not have been more kind, helpful and supportive. Karen, in particular was my contact and guided me through everything and I knew she was only a phone call away when I had questions. It is such a difficult time when you lose someone close, to have someone to guide you through what happens next is such a huge help. I was thankful that Mum had chosen Gibbs when she organised her own funeral plan some years ago, I can’t tell you how comforting it was to know that her funeral was exactly what she would have wanted. Also wanted to say thank you to Holly for all her support and guidance on the day of Mum’s funeral.
Response from G Gibbs Funeral Directors

Overall service was excellent however the donation request was for Canal and River Trust but this was listed on the order of service as shown Canal Friend which may have caused confusion for those wishing to make a donation by cheque.
However the service provided by Gibbs generally was first class

Following the passing of my mother we received a first class service from Gibbs. The bereavement team was extremely efficient, professional and compassionate and ensured all of our needs and requirements were fulfilled effectively. The level of service on the day of the funeral from the hearse and vehicle drivers was also exceptionally good. Overall we were very impressed with Gibbs.
