    From the first phone call following my mum's death, through to collecting her ashes I was shown compassion, empathy and kindness by everyone I spoke to from John Stuart's. Karen ensured I was fully informed at all times and made it easy to ask questions and discuss the arrangements. My thanks go to her and her colleagues for making an awful time that little bit easier.

    Every member of staff that we seen and spoke to at John Stewart were all very very professional and we personally felt that all went beyond their duty to make everything as easy as possible. Karen white was our first point of contact and can’t thank her enough for her kindness and huge support from start to finish in the preparation of our son Luke’s funeral. We will highly recommend your services in the future to friends and family facing similar loss as we did. Thank you 🙏 and god bless you all, you are all very special people.
