When my Mother passed away we contacted A V Band in St Johns as she wished. From the moment we contacted them they were efficient, supportive and compassionate at a time when we needed all this. They kept us well informed at every point and were always there to answer with any questions we had. Nothing was too much trouble, especially as we were very specific about the music we wanted. They went out of their way to get it for us. My Mother had just the service she wanted. Thank you to Darren and all the staff.
Response from A V Band Funeral Directors

At such a difficult time A V Band dealt with all the arrangements. You where kept informed about all the different stages, what you need to do and they are very professional.

Arranging a funeral for your mother is very stressful and is a thing we dreaded. To our relief, my brother and I were put straight at ease from our first visit to A V Band right through the whole experience by our funeral director, George. He welcomed us in a warm friendly professional manner which made us feel comfortable. He was very efficient and patient as we went through the necessary details and options open to us. He kept us informed and checked regularly that the family were all ok. He did go the extra mile for us resolving a problem we had with the catholic church. After deciding on changing churches he arranged for the funeral service to take place in another local church, led by a very accommodating vicar, who met our requests. We and the family thought that was the best decision we made. The funeral went really well despite the awful weather. Other members of staff at A V Band were also very good and nothing was too much trouble for them. They all deserve the five stars.

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.
