    I am indebted to Chris and the team for their support, kindness, patience and sound advice. At such a difficult time it was so reassuring and a huge relief to be able to turn to such an outstanding professional and be able to rely on and trust his integrity, judgement, calmness and clarity. My sincere thanks.

    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

    Sadly,we have needed the services of Eatons three times in the last eighteen months.On each occasion the service has been excellent, taking all the organisational headache out of our hands and managing the issue sensitively and efficiently.

    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.
