Staff at the East Grinstead branch were all very helpful but in particular Chrissie who I felt went out of her way to help as she knew the situation I was in with the distance between myself and my aunt the late Mrs Ellis.
I would recommend your services to anyone.

Staff were very helpful and considerate and made special arrangements for our doctor to be able to provide the cause of death certificate and for us to spend time with my wife in order to fully say goodbye.

I cannot recommend Frances Chappell and Co enough. We had a very small private funeral for our mother and the sensitivity and understanding shown by both Chrissy and Richard throughout was beyond reproach. The chapel, the music and the formality were all amazing and I feel we did our mother proud, she would have been pleased. Thank you.
Wendy.
