Reviews of our services
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.
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.
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.
Nothing was too much bother and they kept up informed every step of the way.
Very understanding, helpful, efficient and kept us at ease.
