Dignified yet kind,friendly, and aiming to please and to meet our wishes. We found all staff, particularly Darren and George, so helpful and ready to offer suggestions. They were quick to offer ideas and to help us draw up a plan that was just what we wanted. Many at the service told us they thought it was ‘perfect’. We thought so too. I would recommend this firm to friends and family should they be looking for such a service.

A V Band were absolutely brilliant, at a time when you need help support and guidance they were there for us. Jackie could not have done more down to arranging for Pip to officiate at the service, everyone commented on what a lovely service it was. On the day Darren and his staff acted with such dignity and the day went like clockwork. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend then anyone.
