Reviews of our services
Paul at the funeral home, in conjunction with David's relatives worked very close together to arrange a truly bespoke and personal service, that was themed to his passion in life, which was Formula 1 Racing.
The colourful coffin of F1 car on a Grand Prix Track, Order of Service depicting laps in his life, and
photo memories set to music on screens within the chapel was nothing other than the best tribute to a lovely man.
This was all topped off by Paul who had contacted The Mercedes F1 Team to tell them of David,s passing and from that they wrote to his wife expressing the team's sadness with words of comfort, which was read out in the service and is a nice keepsake in his memory for his widow.
The service felt very personal, everyone who attended said that the minister understood the personality of the deceased and made everything feel very beautiful, a very gentle and loving service.
The funeral Director arranged everything myself and my family felt we needed in a very kind and fully understandable way. Everyone at Dillistone's from the person who took my call, The Manager, The Director and the person who phoned me a few weeks later to ask how I was doing. Made everything comfortable.
Couldn't recommend them more x Thank you so very much for all your help x
Dillistone Funeral Directors kept me informed at all times of what was happening with the arrangements for the funeral and on the day of the service it was carried out with the upmost sympathy and dignity.
I and my family were very satisfied with Dillistone's and the Chaplin who carried out the service.
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.
