    Everything was 5* from start to finish. My mother was treated like a queen. Can't speak highly enough of the staff involved. Highly recommended.

    Myself and my family found J Lazenby & Son's to be professional,kind and caring while arranging our brother Andrew's funeral, nothing was too much trouble and they saw to it that Andrew had the funeral that he had wanted. In particular I would like thank Louise for her kindness,thoughtfulness, understanding and patience... her conduct was exemplary, she took most of the stress involved in organising a funeral off of my shoulders... for which I am most grateful.
    I would highly recommend J Lazenby & Son.
