G&L Evans have proofed to be the most thoughtful, caring people any bereaved family could hope for.
Right from the first call to request collection of my Mum on a Sunday morning, they were calm and professional making the situation as easy as could be possible.
Nothing was a problem even my countless requests and questions, they were responsive and sympathetic to all members of the family especially on the day of the funeral, we were never hurried, nothing was to much trouble and by the time they left, they felt like friends.
Even, after the funeral, they helped with the ashes and future arrangements for the internment.
They are truly genuine people.
Response from G. & L. Evans Funeral Directors

From the first moment I was made comfortable and understood. Everything was done how I wanted but was helped and guided when I need it. Such care and dignity was shown at the service and everything went well. I couldn’t have asked for better.

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.

We are most grateful for the caring and respectful process that G & L Evans provided after our loss.

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.
