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.

I would like to thank Kat, under difficult times due to covid, we had a funeral at distance, a video link was sent, a car picked up my mum, who was alone to take her to the service and back home again. Kat stayed in the service room with my mum, so she wasn't alone and personally collected/delivered my gran's ashes to her home when they were available. She also took care of downloading a list of songs that I had asked for and rang me to nominate a charity for a donation. She placed the items I had asked for with my gran and kept contact with me all the way through by phone and e mail.It was very professional and very thoughtful, with the right amount of sensitivity. This is the second time I have used W Kaye & sons and I would highly recommend them.
Response from W Kaye & Son Funeral Directors
It means a great deal when people take the time to share their experience and to highlight individuals in the team who have made a difference. Your family continues to be in our thoughts and we are honoured to have been able to give you the service you needed.

Thankyou for your very kind service at this difficult time. We found your staff polite, calm and respectful. We were so grateful that you could come and collect my Dad on a Bank Holiday having kindly stepped in instead of the funeral director nominated on the funeral plan who was not contactable.
We appreciated that even though in this difficult time associated with lockdown, you were very assured and dignified. You were careful, keeping to the rules, but still gave us time, and the opportunity to choose what we needed. We appreciate that you liaised with our Church to make sure that you provided a seamless service, which fitted in with the church service.
In the end having been worried that we would not be able to give my Dad a good send off during lockdown, you helped to give us afuneral which we were pleased with, and which he would have approved of. Thankyou.
Response from W Kaye & Son Funeral Directors
Thank you so much for this lovely review which means all the more at this very challenging time. The team are working very hard to ensure that each family receives outstanding care and I am so glad their dedication has given you the service you needed.
Rating 5.0
We received excellent service from the Kaye and Son team and in particular our Director Richard. They were friendly and respectful at all times and really helpful in organising my late father's funeral. They worked with us to tailor the funeral to our wishes and guided us throughout on the varying choices as well as the recent Covid restrictions. The day itself ran smoothly and exactly as we had wished.
Kaye and Son also directed my Grandfather's funeral with similar great service so this was no fluke. I would note the costing of the Funeral had noticeably increased over the past few years since my Grandfather's passing and when compared against other local Funeral Homes with a comparable funeral service. That said, I couldn't fault the service we received and the day went exactly as planned so this may have been extra money well spent. I would like to pass on our sincere gratitude for your guidance, cordiality and empathy
at such a difficult time.
Response from W Kaye & Son Funeral Directors

I could not believe their kindness. When I rang them to ask any questions they were very helpful and supportive. They did not make me feel as if i was wasting their time if I asked if they had everything they needed or if everything was going ok, They understood how difficult it was for me to restrict numbers because of government guidelines and helped me through it. With regards to flowers they personally put a white rose in the coffin for us and waited outside the church for my auntie to place a red rose on the coffin . I cannot recommend them highly enough.
