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

Ref Lawrence Funeral Directors:

From the very first contact with LFD regarding my mother’s funeral it was shear professionalism all the way. The staff took time go through our requirements for the funeral offering advice and assistance, they were able to organise a minister to take the service, arranging flowers, notices for the local paper and the service booklets. We had several phone calls before the service to ensure that everything was satisfactory.

The day of the service various members of the family met at the offices in Saville Park ahead of the service, the staff served them tea and biscuits. The service at the crematorium was perfect, so well organised!

A few days after the service we were called by the staff just to check that we were all OK, which we thought was a real nice touch!

We couldn’t fault the service by LFD.

A most professional and caring service provided by all staff involved. Our appointed Funeral Director understood our wishes and dealt with them in a supportive and thorough manner keeping us informed at all stages before the funeral. On the day itself she ensured that everything went smoothly and provided dedicated yet unobtrusive support to all.
