    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.

    I could not have asked more from a funeral director. They helped us from start to finish. they guided us through a terribly hard time informed us of what we needed to do, advised us on all elements required in planning a funeral and were compassionate and empathetic throughout the process. On the day of the funeral they were supportive reassuring and extremely organised. I would definitely recommend them to others in this sad situation.

    I can not thank everyone enough for all their support they showed my family and friends with the passing of my mum. From the moment my mum was in their care they gave me a helping hand in everything I wanted for my mums final journey. They gave my mum all the love and dignity she deserved in her final couple of weeks. Everyone went above and beyond and they even opened their doors out of hours so I could visit my mum 24-7. I must give a special mention to Louise who was my point of contact, she was absolutely amazing from the beginning. I would have no hesitation in putting myself and other members of my family into the hands of Lawrence for our final journey. Professional through and through.

    Donald has been absolutely brilliant, always caring and concerned for our welfare, nothing has been too much trouble for him. He has kept in touch with us all the way through, checking things were as we wanted them to be.
    When I have contacted or called in to Lawrences everyone has been professional and courteous.
    The only thing that disappointed me was when I received the ashes, I opened them after Donald had left and wasn't very happy to see them in a plastic bag inside a cardboard box, the funeral wasn't cheap I wanted the best I could afford but in my opinion that spoilt it.
    This would have been a five star rating I just feel that this lets your service down.

    Donald, Fiona and the rest of the staff were just superb. This was the second funeral they had conducted for us and the quality of professionalism and care shown by them all, was once again beyond reproach. Providing a funeral service is obviously a very difficult task but Dignity can be every proud to have Lawrence Funeral Directors as one of their companies.I cannot praise them too highly.
    Best Regards Ken Pollard

    I was very pleased that F. was able to arrange my father's creamation very quickly to meet family circumstances.
    Everything from initial notification of death to the service was done efficiently and the family is very grateful.

    The service was excellent. A very good first meeting being led through what was required and then everything that was required to be done was completed by Lawrence's.

    There was a short follow on meeting before the funeral when everything was confirmed. There was quite a tight turn around between the first meeting and the funeral and where necessary we were kept informed as to what we needed to do to ensure that we met our obligations in terms of Order of Service - this was very good rather than allowing things to drift and so impact the funeral itself.

    The funeral itself was performed without any issues at all with all members of staff being very dutiful.
