The service provided was excellent from start to finish. All the staff were very considerate, and sensitive. Helpful at all times but not intrusively so. Very accommodating about specific, perhaps idiosyncratic, requests, and respectful in all ways.
Rating 5.0
I had too call upon the services of Arthur B Baxter for a second time recently.
Firstly in November 2014 when my Mum sadly died and then again in March 2021 when my Dad passed away. I have to say they have been brilliant on both occasions.
At a time when mentally you find it very hard to cope. You are grieving for a loved one you have lost. Far from your mind at this time are all the arrangements that still have to be made.
Katie my funeral director took care of everything for me. She guided me through everything that needed to be done. Made all the arrangements. Called me on a regular basis with updates. She even called with kind words of support. Which l have to say meant a great deal to me.
The Funeral day came and the service took place as arranged. The sun was shinning on the day I said goodbye to my Dad. I could not have asked for anything better.
I was very happy with the support and kindness that Arthur B Baxters gave to me and my family.
They were very professional and courteous. My Dad would have been proud with the send off he had.
Response from Arthur B Baxter Funeral Directors
It is comforting to know that Katie and the team were there to support you through this time and relieve some of the pressure through guidance and support. It has been a privilege to support your family and care for both your Mother and your Father. We are proud of the whole team.

It was easy to arrange everything after our loss.
The staff were kind and caring
The funeral service was "just right" in the view of the friends who attended.

The staff tried to arrange the retention of the body for medical research as requested by the deceased who had registered with the donation service but were unable to do so.

The ashes were returned in a few days for our safe-keeping until the pandemic is over and we can put them in a suitable resting place

Rebekah was very polite and helpful and both her and her staff were very respectful at the funeral. The Celebrant she recommended did a very moving service and although there were restrictions because of Covid-19 the funeral was beautiful and they did my Father proud.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Arthur B Baxter to anyone who asked.

The staff at Arthur Baxter supported our family through the funerals of both our father and then soon afterwards our mother. They could not have been more helpful or considerate.
Nothing was too much trouble for them and they made certain that both funerals were conducted without a problem and with the greatest of dignity.
We are sincerely grateful to them.

Arthur B Baxters provided the service for my mums funeral.
We spoke with Katie initially who was very professional and set up a meeting.
James greeted us and from start to finish was very professional and sorted everything we needed.
On the actual day all the staff involved did a good job and assisted us to say a final farewell to my mum.
Would recommend.

The arrangements were efficiently carried out and everything I asked to be done was. Katie was able to resolve the only problem, which involved the Local Council, and this was done very promptly even though Christmas intervened. On the day James and his team were very efficient, very dignified and discreet, so the simple service was just as my Mother would have wished.

Very efficient and sympathetic at a difficult time.

Only criticism was that the organist was playing something different to what the rest of us was singing - eg Jerusalem.

We used Arthur Baxter last year when our father died and were very pleased with the arrangements Dean made for us so last month when sadly our mother also died we immediately decided to use them again. Unfortunately Dean was leaving the Company at this time but he passed us on to Katie and she was also really good. Nothing was too much trouble for her and everything went very smoothly on the day of the funeral.
