    From the first contact everyone I came across was very sympathetic and very helpful.

    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.

    We received a very professional service from Joanna and Colin at J.E Spence and were very satisfied with the whole service.
    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.

    This feedback relates to funeral invoicing during 2018 in respect of my mother's funeral. I have already provided this feedback and have settled with Dignity, so this is simply a repeat.
    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.

    Excellent service and very pleasant staff. Colin was very professional but with that all-important personal touch, and we found him very helpful, thoughtful and courteous, doing everything he could to ensure that everything went smoothly and in accordance with our wishes at a very difficult time. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend J E Spence to others.

    From the moment we rang following my father's death we felt very supported. The staff were very helpful in arranging the funeral to fit with close relatives from abroad. We appreciated flexibility with the details of the funeral service, which enabled friends and family to be very involved. Communication was excellent including after the funeral day.
