I chose Granville Brooks because of previous experience with them, for my dad's funeral. Mark and his team were courteous and considerate throughout. Mark once again walked me through every step of the process, from start to finish. He also called in at the family home to sort out details, saving me the hassle of parking in Featherstone, and going up myself. Mark also spent time helping me find the family's chosen music for the service, and organized this for the day. Overall, things couldn't have gone better. A caring and professional team, who provided a first class service.

From the initial discussions and planning of the funeral, the team at Featherstone were very supportive and understanding of our requirements at such a sensitive time.

The event itself was faultless everything ran to time right down to the internment which took place two weeks later.

Thanks to all we all appreciate you efforts and the service provided.

From the first time I contacted Sarah at Granville Brooks she was curtious, kind, caring and showed compassion. She was so helpful as I had never organised a funeral before and went through everything step by step, which was so helpful. All the staff showed empathy and compassion, they were lovely and Mark even drove my partners car as the lead car at his funeral, which meant so much to me and the rest of my family.They delivered an excellent service from start to finish, I would highly recommend them.
