I found the passing of my wife a very challenging time. Rebecca was able to manage the funeral with understanding and skill that made the day of the funeral pass as smoothly as possible. She was able to anticipate my needs and always seemed to be at least one step ahead of me in making the arrangements. Her attention to detail was excellent; at every stage she verbally reviewed the arrangements and also left a written copy for me ti check. No change was denied, no detail was too small to be included. Angela in the St Johns office was very welcoming the day I visited too sit with my wife in the chapel of rest. I would like to thank the whole team for their help on this difficult occasion.

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.

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.
