    The care and consideration offered during what has to be the most difficult time of my life was exceptional. The options that were offered were thoughtful and it has to be said was a complete service. The day itself went really smoothly and the after care very good. Well Done

    Sarah at the Covingham branch was excellent. When we first in to make the arrangements she explained all of the different options in detail and was able to answer all of our questions. It was good to have that personal touch at a very difficult time for me. The funeral was handled professionally and with dignity and I was really impressed with the Celebrant Sarah and the G&L Evans Funeral Attendants that met us on the day and made the day of the funeral run so smoothly. Thank you all.

    My family, including myself, were so pleased with the service provided at such a difficult time. We used the Covinham branch of the company and nothing was too much trouble. The attention to detail was excellent and it meant that the whole service was just as we had planned. The staff even managed to find particular music we requested even though it was not readily available.
    I would say a five star service.
