Reviews for A. V. Band Funeral Directors in Worcester
I also received regular calls to see how I was doing .
On the day of the ceremony I was pleased that my instructions were carried out to the letter and the service was everything I wished for.
And the follow up has been just as sensitive and compassionate.
I would have no hesitation in recommending AVBand.
They all did my husband proud on the day and I can only thank everyone involved for showing dignity and respect to us all.
All the staff I dealt with were totally compassionate and empathetic in all circumstances.
There was a hiccup at the Vale Crematorium when a road closure caused by a serious RTA resulted in the approach road being closed and many mourners and the priest being substantially delayed. At all times Rebecca remained calm and reassuring.
I was most impressed and comforted by her handling of the situation.
I would certainly recommend AVBand.
Can't praise them highly enough. Every single representative was amazing and we couldn't of asked for more.
To our wishes and dignity and respect to our lost love one ..
My first point of contact was a kind and helpful member of staff called Chantelle she explained everything so that the information was easy to understand. I was kept informed during the whole process which puts your mind at ease. I was contacted the day before the funeral by a kind and professional funeral director Rebecca to make sure we were happy with all the arrangements this helps you to know everything is right for your love one before their final journey. Finally I would like to thank all the staff involved for their first class service.
