Reviews of our services
Thank you so much.
On the day itself, the Funeral director, Sarah, put into place everything that had been planned, with the result that the service passed off perfectly.The celebrant chosen was ideal, very caring and thorough in her research.
The memories book and picture were a lovely touch for which I am so grateful.
I have received so many comments from friends, all saying how the whole ceremony was pitched at the right level, and was, they said the best funeral they have been to, if that doesn't sound too strange.
The Service Cards were excellent as well as the Funeral Cars provided.
Everyone we dealt with were very carring and professional. Nothing was too much trouble.
We are very grateful to everyone for making a difficult time easier. Thank you all.
Everything was carried out as I requested and the service we received was not only very professional but all done with great dignity and sensitivity.
I can only thank all concerned for guiding us through a very traumatic time.
They supported us at every stage in organising dad's funeral and the day was memorable for all the right reasons.
Julie was very helpful and attentive with our every need, making the whole experience less stressful for us both
Thank you all at D&W
David Boyns and Lynda Seymour.
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.
