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.
