I could not fault my experience with Francis Chappell. Sam, Vanessa and Nigel were efficient, calm, sympathetic and could not do enough. Queries were responded to quickly and nothing was too much trouble. Would definitely recommend.

Having to manage events after a sad loss is a daunting task - however from the first phone call I made I felt confidence in our choice of funeral director.
I received a warm caring but efficient response. I was ensured that everything would be taken care of - and it was.
The respect shown to all of us as a family during this sad time of loss helped ease a lot of the anxiety involved with arrangements.
Every detail was considered and nothing was too much trouble.
I would like to thank all the staff involved at the Horsham Branch. I would highly recommend them.

From our very first contact, all the way through our devastating loss, we were cared for by Francis Chappell and in particular the lovely Sam at the Roffey branch. She took into account all our concerns and worries and listened to what was important to us. Highly recommend if you are looking for personalised care in these difficult times.

Outstanding service from Sam in the lead up to and after my Mum’s funeral, and outstanding service from James & his team on the day. I and my family could not feel more cared for at this time, especially mid-Covid19 lockdown. My heartfelt thanks to the whole team. Adele N
