It’s an unfortunate thing to have to write a review for such a sad occasion but one I’m very happy to do. We have used Lawrence Funeral Directors in the past (about 16 years ago) and my mum wanted them to arrange her funeral. We were lucky as we could talk about mums wishes before she went so knew what she wanted. I won’t use any names but someone who’s same started with M and another person came out during the night, collected mum and took her away for us. After this we met with the same person (beginning with M) who looked after us all the way through. He couldn’t do enough for us, he guided us and helped us do everything. Not only that but he phoned the day before the funeral and confirmed the details. He really couldn’t have done more than he did. As for the other staff who attended with him they were just as good and very professional and understanding. Nothing was to much trouble. The staff back at the office were just as excellent. I don’t have a bad word to say about any of them and when I go I want Lawrence’s to look after me as well.

When my father passed away there was no question about who we would choose to organise his funeral. Lawrence Funeral Services has dealt with many of my family in the past and continue to provide an excellent, caring and efficient service.
Mark was very understanding and dealt with all our questions in a sensitive manner. He knew his job well and was able to help us when we didn’t know what to do. Thank you.
A funeral is a very difficult time but non the less it is a time to say a special farewell to your loved one. Lawrence’s provided every aspect we required, very professionally, they are a very experienced team and I would happily recommend them.
Thank You

The extremely sad day my mum passed away, I had to quickly find a funeral directors to take her. I chose Lawrence on my phone search engine and I am so glad I did. Mark was amazing throughout and on the day of my mum’s funeral, everything went to the exact plan that me and my small family had made. A big thank you to Mark and the team at Lawrence Funeral Directors. You made a very sad day to be also a happy one.

Made a number of calls and visits to Green Hayes and was always treat with respect and compassion. The service by the Funeral Director was truly excellent. She made us comfortable in making challenging and upsetting decisions; guided us through the process of arranging the funeral ensuring that our wishes were upheld; she contacted me to make sure I was coping, spontaneously offering her time and consideration. Nothing was rushed, everything we requested was made possible. The drivers on the day were helpful, pleasant and respectful. Our thanks go to all those we had contact with from this well organised service provider.

outstanding. from first phone call in middle of the night to funeral. had a face to face meeting with staff to go through what mom wanted. saying NO to some things was not a problem. NO pressure what so ever. if i should change my mind it was alright to do so. every thing explained in a way i could understand. simple. was kept informed about things and told i could ring if needed. day of funeral went as planned and even at the grave side it was perfect. all family and friends said how respectful it was. mom got what SHE wanted. will be using again when needed for dad, me and husband.

Lawrence's took care of my mother's funeral and luckily she had taken out a policy, which took away a lot of decisions at a very difficult time. Donald and his team were very helpful and caring. They guided me very well through all of the stages. I would recommend them.

Very happy with the service provided by Lawrence's for my mothers funeral. Everything was arranged by Donald who was very sympathetic and took the time to explain everything and advise of all the changes ongoing due to Covid. This was great as I had no real Idea what to do. On the day everything went well. Excellent
