    Through what is the most difficult time you can be going through, J & R Mathews were fully professional and supportive in helping me arrange my mothers funeral. Her funeral went exactly how I wanted it to go which has helped me to cope with my loss.

    Though we only had a simple funeral we were treated kindly and never made uncomfortable. Everything went smoothly. Really pleased with the service we received from you and your staff. Could not wish for nicer people from arranging the funeral to the actual funeral bearers. Thank you for everything
