    All the staff involved in Dad’s funeral arrangements were very attentive,nothing was too much trouble and
    any special requests or general enquires were dealt with promptly and with sensitivity.
    My father was treated with great respect right from the start of the arrangements and this care was extended to his family and friends on the day of his funeral.

    From the very beginning we were impressed with how sensitively everything was handled but at the same time we felt it was down to earth. The staff were thoughtful, kind, informative and professional and we would have no qualms about recommending Malcolm J Presland's in Upton upon Severn to anybody. To begin with we were dealing with Hayley but met Nick later and he was equally kind and professional. Everybody at the funeral commented on how they liked the respect he showed to my mother.

    We were most impressed with the service provided by Margaret, who was kind, considerate, very helpful and extremely professional throughout. On the day of the funeral, Carol and the Gentlemen were quite wonderful, going out of their way to make sure the day ran smoothly.
    Not so impressed with our initial contact with the Funeral Director but we are happy to accept and understand that he was fairly new to the position.
    Following the funeral, we were asked if we would like to pay, there and then and we happily agreed. We weren't given a breakdown of the costs but were quoted a total figure which we paid. It was disappointing to receive, nearly three weeks later, an invoice for an outstanding £5. When we queried this we were told that it might be in respect of the cost of printing the orders of service and that the original figure we were quoted when asked to pay was only an estimate. We weren't told this at the time.
    However, we would like to emphasise that the service provided by Margaret, Carol and the Gentleman was superb and made what could have been a difficult time so much easier.

    Thank you for your review and your kind comments about Margaret, Carol and the gentleman. These will be passed on.

    We also appreciate your patience and understanding of our new Funeral Director, who is still training.

    I am sorry to hear of the issues surrounding the invoice and the further letter you received, I have asked our Business Manager to look into this and contact you.
