I found A V Bands to be very helpful especially Jackie who helped through my sister Mary's funeral arrangements and help from chantelle i found them to be very professional i would have now problem in recommending A V Bands
Response from A. V. Band Funeral Directors

I dealt mainly with Rebecca at AVBand. She was kind, compassionate and sympathetic . Everything was arranged professionally but it was all done at my pace, The celebrant recommended , Pip Challenger, was perfect and so warm and caring. She made it a delight to talk about my much missed husband.

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.

From the very first meeting to discuss my wishes for my husband’s funeral arrangements A V Bands were always professional. They gave me time, choices, which at any time I could change if needed, there was no rushing me into decisions, and kept in touch with me all the way through. They all treated myself and my family with dignity and respect.
They all did my husband proud on the day and I can only thank everyone involved for showing dignity and respect to us all.
Response from A. V. Band Funeral Directors

In respect of my father's funeral, the service myself and my family received from Chantelle, John and the AV Band team was outstanding. They were caring, thoughtful, understanding and supportive at all times. I cannot speak highly enough of them. Thank you all.

I couldn't recommend A.V.Band more highly.
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.
Response from A. V. Band Funeral Directors
Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts with us. We have been working hard to maintain our high standards of care in these challenging times and it's great to know that we succeeded in doing so.

Having never organised a funeral before we chose AV Band after a Google search and reading their reviews. From the first phone call we made to them they were helpful and gave us advise on everything we needed to do. We dealt with Jackie who was always there to answer our questions, she referred us to a lovely Celebrant , Pip and also liaised with the florist who created the tribute flowers which were just perfect. On the day the men were respectful and friendly and the service was just what we wanted for our beloved Mum. Thank you

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.

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
It means a great deal when people take the time to share their experience and to highlight individuals in the team who have made a difference. We know how special each person is and aim to convey this in all aspects of our work from the arrangements to the day of the service.
