    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.

    Arranging a funeral is no easy task. Fiona along with her team dealt with everything with so much attention to detail.

    As a family we all agreed the day was organised to perfection, we thank all T W Birks & Son for arranging our fathers funeral.

    Kind Regards............. Michael & John Eastwood + Families.

    The service we received for my dads funeral was impeccable, the respect and dignity everyone has shown not only to my dad but also the family has been amazing. Ian was fantastic and absolutely nothing was too much trouble. I would like to thank Chris Berry for the service he conducted it was flawless.
    Everyone I have dealt with have been friendly, kind and very helpful,
    Thank you.
