Thank you to E Wootten for their care and compassion in the preparation for saying goodbye to my dad, Harry Lewis. They took care of his body for a long time, due to Covid we had to give time for key members of the family to take leave and isolate from Ireland. The team were very accommodating when we had a handover period, after our cycle procession. We didn't feel rushed and they waited patiently with the hearse. At the cemetery one of our guests who is disabled, fell, and she was kindly looked after. Our thanks to all your team. Kind regards, Heather

Staff in the office were very thoughtful and sensitive and understanding to our needs. Also kept us up to date with everything that was happening. The staff at the actual funeral were supportive but not intrusive. I have used Wootten's twice now and would certainly recommend them.

I was absolutely delighted with the service provided by Wootens of Calne and in particular, Sue, who arranged and saw to everything necessary. At the Crematorium she had made all the arrangements beforehand and the whole ceremony was wonderful. It was all overseen by the Director, Geoff who even helped arranging the flowers for display and putting them in our car when the service was over.

Nothing was too much trouble, she listened to our requests and ideas giving us options on how to achieve the funeral that we wanted for dad.

Our family have used E.Woottens before and wanted to use them again for our father in law.
We have on both occasions received excellent care and service from Jenn and Sue. They go above and beyond to make sure the funeral was planned and taken care of exactly how we wanted it to be. The arrangements were made with Jenn again patience and attention to details was at the top of the list. Jenn made sure the family felt that the service they wanted was exactly that. Our family mentioned to Jenn that Dad loved his horseracing, and Jenn suggested this theme on the Order of Service Sheets which looked fab. Her and Sue even copied off a betting slip and betting forecast and placed it in his coffin which was a great comfort to us. The care on the day was as always impeccable. Great care and attention at the Crematorium, nothing was too much trouble, a phone call made to my husband on the day of the service was of some comfort. I would highly recommend E. Wootten & Son.

Excellent. The funeral director was totally tuned in to to supporting and helping us with respect, compassion and appropriate gentle humour. She was flexible and accommodating about arrangements right up to the last minute! The plans and prices were adaptable simple and clear. I have no plans to bury anyone else soon but when I do I will happily use Woottens again.

We had previously used Woottens for the funeral of my Aunt in 2011 and were very happy with the service we received at that time. So, when my Uncle died this year it was obvious to us which funeral director we should use. We were so happy with the help and attention to detail we received from Jenn, nothing was to much trouble for her. The room where we sat to discuss the details was private, cosy, beautifully decorated and comfortable. We even changed our minds about one or two details but they were swiftly changed without comment. The funeral was carried out in the most professional and courteous manner and we were absolutely delighted with how it all came together. Thank You.
