Chantelle & her team are fantastic! From the moment AV Bands took my father into their care they took care of everything. We had no idea what to do and Chantelle talked us through everything and they organised everything. I can’t thank them enough.

At a difficult time Chantelle was both reassuring and very helpful. I never felt under any pressure to make a decision and all my questions and worries were sorted out. The funeral itself was well organised with everything done to my requirements and great care taken to allow the family to mourn respectfully.

Right from the start of the process the friendly and sympathetic staff made it easier to arrange my mum's funeral service.
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.

Rating 5.0
We recently used the services of A.V. Band to organise the funeral arrangements for our loved one. When such an event comes around, most of us have very little knowledge of what needs to be done. Darren provided that confident support that you require throughout, attentive at all times he ensured that all was organised seamlessly and nothing was missed. On the day the team that attended the funeral were equally professional providing that feeling of confidence and support. I would not hesitate to recommend their services if you unfortunately find yourself in the position of needing to arrange a funeral.
Response from A. V. Band Funeral Directors

At times of loss, we need kindness but also clarity and efficiency. We could not have asked for more in all these regards. From the point of first talking with a member of A V Band staff through to the funeral day and beyond, we found their service to be thoughtful and thoroughly dependable. Thank you to all who played a part.
