Thankyou SO much to everyone at E V Fox & Sons.When I lost my husband at the beginning
of December I was at such a loss as to what to do - especially in this current environment.
Anita and Andrea were so caring and so helpful.They gently led me through each process,
giving me advice and bringing any documents and then picking them up later. Everything
was organised by telephone and Mark was also such a help, especially with the printers
for the order of service and the flowers.He was so kind and caring on the day of the
funeral.Our celebrant Andrea was also brilliant.Such a difficult job when everything
is done by phone or e-mail.
Thankyou to everyone at Fox`s.
Response from E V Fox & Sons Funeral Directors

From the first moment of making contact with Anita at E V Fox I couldn’t have wished for a better experience in dealing with the very sensitive and sad funeral of my Mam. Everything was professionally dealt with in a caring and friendly manner which surprisingly made the arrangements much less difficult and upsetting than you would expect. From start to finish Anita was first class and a credit to E V Fox.

All aspects of the funeral were arranged with no fuss including an excellent florist and a wonderful celebrant Andrea to conduct the service.
The day of the funeral Mark had every aspect arranged to perfection.

The whole experience with E V Fox was excellent and I would express my family’s sincere thanks for their service and assistance in such sad circumstances.
