The staff at G&L Evans made me and my family feel so cared for by them - they thought of everything and their service was so personal. Our funeral director was always available to answer any question we had, she never once made us feel under any pressure, and approached every aspect of the arrangements with great sensitivity. On the day of my fathers funeral the respect shown by Sarah and her team and their dedication to making sure it ran smoothly was appreciated so much by myself and my family.
