from the outset when Fiona was informed of my fathers passing she has been absolutely amazing, arranging everything for my brother and myself, including the flowers, the venues, speaking with the vicar and organist dealing with the crematorium absolutely everything
she is outstanding at her job as is both professional but shows incredible empathy during this difficult period. I visited my father whilst he was in your care and i knew instantly he was cared for and treated with upmost respect and Fiona was just amazing to have there with me
she is one in a million and cannot thank her enough
the team at the funeral home also when i visited showed upmost respect and professionalism

All the staff were very professional and very helpful at all times. In particular Fiona helped and advised me in a quiet, gentle and caring way throughout the whole process and especially on the day of the funeral itself.
Fiona listened to our thoughts and feelings as a family and advised us accordingly even making suggestions we had not thought of and on the day she guided us all along in a very professional way.

Dealing with my mother in laws funeral arrangements were made so much easier with the personal help of Fiona. Fiona’s guidance & recommendations locally was especially appreciated. T W Birks are a fabulous family business that cares very much for the families that choose them to deal with the arrangements of a loved one that has passed.

So kind and helpful, even telephoned me a number of times to see how I was coping, so easy to talk to, like we had been friends for years, went the extra mile to make sure everything went smoothly. Beautiful funeral home, lovely private room for me to sit in to say my private goodbye. Shame I am not allowed to name this lovely lady who took care of me.

Excellent service from start to finish. Nothing was too much trouble and everything went really smoothly.
Would recommend to anyone. Listened to what we wanted made good recommendations but were just quietly supportive in the back ground without being overwhelming

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.
