The funeral Directors were very caring and supportive. When Dad passed away they were there within 10 minutes. Richard Pickles could not do enough for me. The service at Skipton was what Dad would have wanted. Every thing was perfect and Dads wishes were met

Rating 4.0
Your services were professional and empathetic, and made a difficult time as easy as possible.

There were 2 minor problems: The food at the wake at The Wheatley in Ben Rhydding was served 2 hours after our arrival, and I received no apology from The Wheatley or explanation - I was invited to contact them instead despite my mentioning the problem to Eatons; and 2. I never found out how much money was collected for charity at the church.

But thank you for your kind approach.
