Highly professional, expertly handled by Richard and Jill providing a great service experience. Excellent appointment of the Celebrant, Peta and (due to holidays) connected us to a perfect florist for the celebration. Richard also went out of his way to personally collect Certificates etc so that things could move quickly and effortlessly right at the beginning just when we needed the most help. Throughout the process they were great… Richard for the whole celebration and Jill at the viewing who was perfect. Could not have asked for anything more, an absolute pleasure to have engaged their procedural, organisational and companionate skills and expertise.
They made the occasion great…. Just as it should be !

I was very pleased with the service I received from my mum and also my dad from W Kaye and Sons.

Obviously at such a difficult time in your life having a company to help with everything it’s such a comfort. Richard whom I dealt with it couldn’t have been more helpful, understanding and caring.

They organised everything from flowers, service sheets, cars the service itself and if there was anything I needed to discuss I knew they were there to help and advise. I would definitely recommend this company.

I was very happy with the first class service I received. Richard was brilliant, he was so helpful and he explained everything and answered any questions we had. His professional knowledge and advice was very much appreciated, which made things so much easier and less stressful. On the day everything was perfect, all the staff were brilliant and so professional, the cars were spotless the flowers were perfectly placed. We could not have asked for better service. Our family have always used W Kaye and Son due to their excellent service and once again we were not disappointed. Thankyou

Good Afternoon,

I cannot use too many superlatives to describe the service we received from you, in respect of the arrangements you undertook following the loss of our cousin, Ronald Wilson. From the first telephone call to make the initial enquiry through to the end, we received first class service. Everything was dealt with very professionally, respectfully, pleasantly and exceedingly efficiently. We received guidance on aspects we were unsure of, but this was done in a kindly manner and not forcefully. The sad situation was handled in such a way that it was almost a pleasure. We cannot thank you enough for everything you did. You will certainly be our first choice in the future should the necessity arise, but hopefully not too soon. Thank you all once again. Kind regards, Lynn Bowater and family.

The staff at W. Kayes at beeston in Leeds were so very caring and helped me at a very traumatic time after the death of my stepmother . I can not praise them enough and especially Kat who was so very efficient and made sure all my requests were carried out to the letter. She talked me through everything and was so attentive to me. It was so reassuring to have such caring people around for me at such a terrible time.
