I lost my precious son on Christmas Day he was 30 years of age. The service we got from Walsh’s was outstanding.
Sarah who was our undertaker went above and beyond to help us through this devastating time, she was there for me as a mother 24/7. My son always wore a hat as he was very conscious of his hair line and Sarah got all the undertakers at my sons funeral to wear hats, that to me was so special.
Sarah will always have a place in my heart for all the love and care she gave to me and my family at this desperately sad time.

Sarah was brilliant right from the start of the arrangements, with a difficult family situation Sarah guided us through the funeral arrangements with the care & patience. Everything was as we had asked. The unexpected aftercare was lovely, courtesy calls from staff at D Walsh to make sure we were ok and if we needed any extra support. Overall a really professional and caring company. very happy with our experience.

Our beloved dad passed away in July and we requested that D Walsh & Son Directors take on the service. I have got to say that they did absolutely everything and more to ensure that the day was as perfect as we wanted. We can never thank them enough for the care and consideration they did for us as a family and our director Sarah went above and beyond what we expected. We did not have to worry about anything on the day at all.
Thank you so much for taking the pain away from our day....with kindest regards and respect from the daughters and family of the late Thomas Lofthouse
Response from D Walsh & Son Funeral Directors

Despite the date and time, first of January, 7.30 AM, Representatives from D Walsh attended within 15 minutes of my call. The courteous and dedicated handling was exemplary, both at this time and throughout the funeral arrangement process. Special thanks to Rebecca who took charge from start to end.

Many heartfelt thanks to D Walsh and son.

We were very happy with the service we received due to the passing of our father, we were greeted with compassion and respect, they went through every step of the funeral care he needed to give him the send off he deserved, we couldn’t have asked for more, everyone was just great, our mum went from there 5 years ago so we knew what service to expect and they didn’t let us down.
