DW operated totally professionally in a calm and sympathetic manner. The funeral director (James Herbert) was incredible, with his smooth control of the requirements for the funeral possessing superb interpersonal skills. The celebrant Piers Lane was also superb and quickly enamoured himself with all members of the family - Thankyou to both James & Piers and all those behind the scenes people that make occasions such as this that little more bearable.

Extraordinary, caring, loving, warm and above all else flawless service

Exceptional is the first word that comes to mind when thinking back on how lovingly, caringly and respectfully Ben handled my husbabd's funeral.

From the first moment of meeting Ben I knew he was the one to put my trust in with this sad task, and I was not wrong!

From the death of my husband right through to his funeral I have been well cared for - frequent phone calls checking that I was doing okay. As a family we wanted to organise our own secular funeral with contributions from friends in music, singing and readings and in this we were supported all the way.
I have nothing but praise for Walsh's, their care and support has been exemplary.

Exceptional service. James and Katie were very polite, professional and sensitive to our feelings following the recent death of our beloved Auntie Joyce. On the day of the funeral, James heroically stepped out into the extremely busy main arterial road, at the end of our road, to stop the traffic for the hearse and funeral car. The flowers were beautiful and our drivers were polite and professional. At the Crematorium, 6 pall bearers appeared out of nowhere and carried Auntie Joyce's coffin into the chapel on their shoulders, which was a very moving and lovely surprise. Auntie Joyce was treated with great care, reverance and respect and it was wonderful.

If I have any negative comment to make it's the number of phone calls I received afterwards and the excessive offer of assistance. Which some people may find very helpful, but I found to be a tad annoying. I'm not sure how you can counter this as perhaps you feel this assistance is required by everyone. Sorry to add a negative to this review, as the actual funeral and arrangements were perfectly fine and the staff in the branch were great.
Response from D Walsh & Son Funeral Directors
I want to thank you for your 5* rating and comments. I am happy to hear you were satisfied with the service provided by the funeral director. I was sorry to hear you felt inconvenienced by the calls you received from us. These were from our Legal Services Team and Client Care Team to offer support and guidance. I can assure you, you will not receive any further calls from us. Thank you once again for your review.
