From the time I contacted them I have felt looked after. All questions answered from day one. Everything went as it should and all staff, I felt, went over and above by looking after all my needs. I cannot thank them enough. I can thoroughly recommend them, their kind and friendly service making a very sad time bearable. Thank you all.

The service I received from A V Band was excellent. All the staff were caring and professional and were able to answer any questions I had. At such a difficult time it was really helpful to have a company that did all they could to make everything easier. On the day of the funeral they could not have been more helpful and sympathetic to us all and I would thoroughly recommend them.

The staff at St Johns made it easy going through the details needed for cremation and what would happen and when.
The staff transporting the coffin did so with dignity and confidence and the officiant recommended by Band's was excellent.
I would have no hesitation in recommending A V Band to anyone.

A V Band met and exceeded all our requirements and made a difficult time for us far less stressful. Your staff were all extremely attentive and caring and went the extra mile to ensure that all went smoothly.Initially, Angela who expertly guided us through the process, Susan who drove us to the service and literally went the extra mile to ensure that an otherwise sad occasion had some light relief and lastly Darren who was both professional and friendly in the way he guided us through the service.

Many thanks to everyone at A V Band and I would not hesitate to recommend your services.

I unreservedly recommend A V Band. Throughout the process of organising my husband's funeral the office staff were wonderful - kind, understanding and totally professional. Nothing was too much trouble for them. They returned calls promptly and guided and advised sensitively. On the day of the funeral Lee was fantastic - empathic, professional and so very kind. The staff made a very difficult process so straight-forward; I always felt complete confidence in them. A truly wonderful service from this amazing company. Thank you. Lisa Louvaine.

My mother Stephen and I have been extremely impressed with all the services you provided to us at this very sad time, from start to finish. Excellent service throughout and would recommend to others! Angela at your Malvern Road branch has been so kind, passionate and treated us with the most dignity and respect while dealing with our beloved father/husband John Bennett Rowley.
