Reviews for J E Spence Funeral Directors in Leeds
Ben supported us throughout the whole time. This was very much appreciated during these challenging times.
Thank you so very much for enabling us to give mum a good "send off"!
The staff we very empathetic and caring and kept us informed at all times to the process and what to expect .
I would not hesitate to recommend this company to anybody els.
Michael was especially helpful and courteous throughout, and made the funeral run very smoothly.
I would thoroughly recommend the services of J E Spence to anyone.
Colin put me at ease straight away and made some very helpful suggestions. The celebrant that he suggested Kate Barker gave a wonderful eulogy for my friend and gave a very lovely service that was enjoyed if that's the right thing to say about a funeral! by all that attended. Thank you to you all for making things so much easier to deal with.
The circumstances of my sister's death were not straightforward, as the Coroner and police were involved and this resulted in delays in being able to finalise the funeral details. Joanna regularly kept us up to date on the progress and made the whole operation as easy as possible, under the circumstances. J E spence worked closely with the church, making our part in organising the funeral a lot less stressful.
Last year you invoiced 3x for the additional costs of my mothers funeral. The first invoice was sent 4 months after the funeral and I wrote to ask why the delay. It had also been sent to the wrong address. I received no reply. I was then sent further invoices - and the third invoice included a threat of interest payments. I wrote back after the second invoice and then phoned to complain after the 3rd. We settled by agreeing to pay half the invoice (my father's choice) and I had a very pleasant call from a local service manager to apologise.
As I was saying to your colleague on the phone yesterday, our experience suggested that Dignity had become too compartmentalised to process our correspondence appropriate.
