    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

    We chose TW Birks because they had hanndled my Mothers funeral 12 years ago and were local to where my Father lived. Once again they provided an excellent service from our first telephone call right the way through the process until beyond the funeral. They showed great sympathy and empathy and nothing was too much trouble.
    We particularly liked the option of being able to choose an Order of Service Cover featuring The Flying Scotsman, which resonated with my Father as his was the engine that pulled the carriages when he and Mum went away on honeymoon.
    The funeral directors were avilable to help with any queries no matter how small. They arranged a lovely funeral and gave our father a really good send off.

    I would like to express my sincere thanks to Joy for managing the funeral of both my mother and my nephew.

    She delivered an outstanding level of service to our family at a very difficult time.

    Thanks to her helpful suggestions identifying a celebrant, venue, flowers and order of service, she eased much of our families distress by ensuring every detail of the funeral was taken care of with great sensitivity and discretion.

    Joy has excellent people skills, a gift for listening carefully and an air of re-assuring clam that made us all feel we were in safe hands.

    The service from TW Birks was excellent. There was a very thoughtful attention to detail so that even my brother in New Zealand was included in the arrangements. Everything went off without a hitch and with minimum effort on our part. Things we wanted were noted and we did not have to ask again. We were extremely satisfied with the service we received and would not hesitate to recommend TW Birks to anyone.

    Over and above. Joy was wonderful, sensitive, genuinely caring, available whenever we needed her, gave us her time. The funeral went well and all our wishes were met. Things were allowed to be changed late into the arrangements, nothing was too much trouble. We could see Mac and Christopher whenever we wanted.

    If I was being incredibly picky and looking for the slightest improvements that could be made:
    music in the chapel needs to be more selective (however this was changed for Mac).
    Perhaps a bit more info on burial and perhaps advising us to go and look - still not sure whether there was any choice of 'plot'.
    Of course non of this matters. They helped us survive the worst event of our lives
    From Rachael and her daughters, Annapurna, Athena and Amira and Heather - Mac's girlfriend.

    If I could leave more than 5 stars I would. T W Birks, and in particular Fiona, were exceptional. Obviously this was a sad time but we felt cared for and looked after. I cannot thank you enough.

    Ian was a great help in organising my mum’s funeral, the first one I’ve had to organise. He answered all my questions with enormous understanding and sympathy. He checked everything with me on a regular basis, keeping me informed at every step of the process, especially on the actual day of the funeral.
