From the very start the service we received was amazing. Philip made us feel like nothing was too much trouble and no question or request was too silly. They genuinely cared about our mum and took an interest in her interests etc which helped plan the perfect day for mum and it was just what she would have wanted. On the day the respect shown not only to mum but us all was outstanding and we can not thank Philip enough as he genuinely helped us through a sad time and we even all had a smile on our faces .. we will be eternally thankful for all the help received katie, tracey and family

Martin and the staff provided an excellent service at a very difficult time. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anybody, the cost was no more than you would pay for a similar but certainly not as caring or attentive service as we received.

There was nothing that I would have changed or anything more I could have asked for.

Thank you for helping our family through the difficult task of planning a wonderful tribute to my Mum.

Philip Wilson was very helpful and sympathetic when my wife passed away after a very short and aggressive cancer. I particularly appreciated his understanding when the family asked if we could purchase the wicker coffin ourselves and decorate it with greenery as we were arranging a woodland burial. He also liaised with the Rose Hill Natural Burial Ground on our behalf which saved us time and worry in a very difficult time for us all.
Response from T W Birks & Son Funeral Directors
It has been an honour to look after you and your Wife and to respond sensitively to your specific needs. Your kind words mean a great deal to Philip and the rest of the team who always work very hard to deliver great care.

Throughout the whole process of arranging my husbands funeral right up to the day itself I was shown nothing but empathy, sympathy and complete undertaking of what I was feeling. I was kept informed of every step and have nothing but praise for all members of staff I came I contact with. I would highly recommend T W Birks to anyone who found themselves in the unfortunate situation I have recently experienced. All staff are a credit to their profession.

The care and compassion shown by everyone at TW Birks was wonderful. You managed to help plan my lovely Father’s funeral at an even more difficult time under COVID restrictions. Philip was extremely kind, organised and nothing was too much trouble. We would like to sincerely thank Philip and the team for helping us at such a difficult time.

T W Birks gave outstanding service when my mother died, unexpectedly, whilst I was out of the country on holiday. I couldn't have asked for more support and understanding during this difficult time.

From the first phone call from Malta ... to the final farewell I couldn't fault them.

Following my experience and recommendation; several other friends and family have now pre-booked their funeral plans with T W Birks.

The staff of T W Birks & Son arranged my wife's funeral with the utmost professionalism and sympathy. They orchestrated the funeral day exactly as we wished, even the last minute changes, to ensure it ran like clockwork. All who attended were highly impressed. I have no hesitation in recommending them to everyone.

The whole service was excellent.

Martin carried out the initial interview and took us through the whole process, discussing options and choices. He did not encourage us to choose the most expensive options and allowed us time to chat between ourselves so that the final package suited us well. He took plenty of time and we were not rushed at all.

Fiona chose to be our funeral director for Dad's funeral because she had taken my Mother's funeral 7 years ago. The continuity was a nice touch because she had provided very good service last time around. The whole process was carried out sympathetically, efficiently and calmly.

I was impressed with how the service has continued to improve over 7 year. I liked:

-The Wide range of Stationary choices
-The opportunity to include 5 photographs on the Order of Service
-The Many choices of coffins and flowers
-Opportunity to view the service live and for 28 days afterwards on the Obitus website which meant that brother in Australia could
watch

On the actual day I was impressed by the way Fiona walked in front of the hearse in front of Dad's house and again when we approached the Crematorium, despite pouring rain. She, along with the Bearers and the Celebrant, bowed to the coffin on occasions. Both these actions were very touching and respectful.

During the lead up to the funeral and throughout the funeral day Fiona checked with us that everything was going well and guided us through the process. She also followed up with a phone call after the funeral day. The whole of the proceedings were thoroughly professionally.

Thank you
