My mother's funeral was held on 1 July at Chichester Crematorium. We were anxious about how it would go during the COVID crisis, but the whole organisation went very smoothly, from the funeral arrangements in the office, to the attendants and the celebrant at the crematorium itself. Everyone was very kind, helpful and efficient. The service was simple but appropriate, with a nice atmosphere that made a sad occasion as good as it could be. We are grateful to all the staff at Dillistone & Wraights for their excellent service.

The service was compassionate, understanding, comprehensive and clear.

We felt as though we were in safe hands and that the service that we wanted for our father would be delivered, as indeed it was.

I would thoroughly recommend Dillistone and Wraight to anyone going through the same process.

An extremely professional service which was taylored to suit our needs of a small funeral. Natalie helped us throughout, and during a difficult time she made everything stress free & personal. Natalie also put us in contact with a lovely celebrant lady, Collette, who provided a memorable service for Mum. Thank you.

The staff at D&W went out of their way to provide a friendly and approachable service for my fathers funeral. It was my first time organising something like this and Natalie put my mind at rest by organising all the details whilst involving us in every decision throughout the process. On the day Gerald and his staff made sure he was there to support the family whilst not being intrusive at this sensitive time. The Celebrant that was provided gave an uplifting and full description of my father and his life.
Everyone commented on how smooth the whole process was from start to finish. Many thanks.

My whole family and our friends would join me in commending Dillistone & Wraights funeral services. From helpful staff in the office, through phone calls with arrangements about the cars down to the service on the day - all staff were respectful, caring, efficient, smart & friendly. They helped us turn a tough day into a splendid send-off for my lovely mother.

I used the Chichester branch of a Dillistone & Wraights and I cannot express enough how wonderful the two ladies where, supportive, caring and very sincere. They went above and beyond to ensure my mums funeral went well, they exceeded themselves and I cannot thank them enough for helping me through all the formalities at what was a very difficult time.
