I was very pleased with the way that Dillistones Funeral Directors handled the funeral of my mother. I had a lot of favourable comments from family abroad who were able to watch online. The event was organised well and all explained clearly in advance. The funeral was pre-paid and there were no unexpected add-ons to the invoice. Very happy to give my recommendation.

I was informed of your services by email and when visiting your office was given more information covering everything.

I felt my daughter & I were listened to helped through how we would like to have the whole process as we had planned. We were delighted to be told we could request a motorcycle & sidecar to carry my husband's coffin (something he wanted!!)

I later asked if a couple of amendments could be made, which were happily done.

On the day of my husband's funeral, which we wanted as an informal biker themed celebration of his life, everything went to plan. All who attended said later that they thought it was so appropriate for him and 'the best' funeral they had been to.

Many thanks to the Celebrant chosen to officiate for us.

From the very first contact, we have received nothing but professional, slick support. Kirsty was quick at responding to any queries we had and kept us informed at all stages of the proceedings.

The reverend Mel Sop was a pleasure to have as the person delivering the ceremony.

All in all a satisfying experience in the strangest of circumstances.

I'd like to thank Dillistone Funeral Directors very much for the service provided for my late father. Dillistones were very accommodating & sensitive to people's emotions, & did their best to minimise encroachment of "pandemic" restrictions & ensure the whole experience was as dignified as possible.

If I could give more stars I would. We were looked after so well by Natasha and Melanie. Nothing was too much trouble and we received so much support. A personal thanks goes to Melanie who is just incredible. She held me up when my legs wobbled and her little surprise poem at the EMB was just perfect. Honestly, at such a difficult time we were given every support going and I would highly highly recommend Dillistone's to look after your loved one and give you the support you need.
