We believe that Lawrence Funeral Directors accepted with dignity and decorum towards us as a family and in particular my mother as the deceased person. They gently suggested various ways in which to outline her lifestyle, interest, travel and so forth in a way that would be appreciated by all. They certainly helped us in selecting the appropriate casket and also get over the issues of including another person's ashes, already cremated over ten years previously. The Director and his team were splendid in looking after us all making everything run very smoothly on the day of the funeral. Thank you.

The organisation from start to finish was perfect. So much attention to detail and everything was dealt with with compassion and understanding by Rebekah. Nothing was too much trouble and we knew we could get in touch at any point and our queries would always be dealt with promptly, even if the person we needed to speak to wasn't available at the point of contact. We were regularly contacted with courtesy calls throughout the process to check that we were coping ok and to check that the correct arrangements were in place. Rebekah called us after the funeral to check how we all were and that we didn't need further help in any way.Your valuable contribution made a very sad time a little more bearable. Thank you to all that were involved in the preparation and on the day. Deb Wetton

From the initial professional collection of my Mum's body at 2 in the morning, through a face-to-face initial meeting, through a myriad of special requests, to a successful service and cremation, Lawrence Funeral Directors provided excellent service. Janine, our contact, was both professional and friendly throughout.
My Mum had left very detailed wishes, which Janine was able to sort for us. Nothing seemed too much trouble. The cortege staff were superb too.
Well done all.

We were treated with sensitivity & courtesy throughout. We were very organised in knowing what we wanted and this did not present a problem. The member of staff who dealt with us filled in the gaps and took time to talk us through the details making suggestions when needed but didn’t impose. Reassured us with any uncertainties. Nothing was too much trouble and it was helpful that flowers etc could be ordered through Lawrence’s. Couldn’t fault them and would definitely recommend.

The process of organising my mother’s funeral was respectful and extremely courteous throughout. The culture of all staff is the same, treating the deceased and family members with dignity and always being professional. The Funeral Director was particularly helpful, nothing was too much trouble ensuring that everything was carried out exactly as I asked for. I would have no hesitation in recommending Lawrence Funeral Directors.

Thank you for a brilliant service your staff gave to my family and I with the arrangement for my mums funeral. Mark was very helpful and kept us informed and checked in with myself to make sure we were all okay and had managed to get things done eg meeting the Vicar, order of service, music. I never felt under any pressure. The staff on the day of the funeral were very professional. Thank you for a wonderful service you took all the stress away.

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.
