Jonathan and the team at Kirkwoods arranged my Aunt's funeral when she passed away in March. They had previously arranged my Dad's funeral in 2019 and they handled both occasions with compassion and professionalism. Kirkwoods made two very difficult times that little bit easier.

I thought the service was great. My only complaint would be not being able to see my mum at the weekend. She didn't get to the home until Friday, so not a lot of time to see her.

I used Kirkwoods because of the the experience i had a few years ago when my Father passed. When my wife passed recently Kirkwoods where the first and only Funeral Directors that i thought of and contacted. From my first call Kirkwoods immediately took over and organized everything, nothing seemed to much trouble. My point of contact has been Amanda who has been absolutely wonderful. I would certainly recommend to anyone who is looking for a Funeral Directors to look no further and contact them.

Kirkwoods provided an excellent service to us at the time of the sudden passing of my wife. All staff involved in every aspect of the arrangements and on the day attended to every detail in a caring compassionate manner, and this was all the more appreciated as it was against the backdrop of daily delays, restrictions and changes during the covid19 crisis. It provided us an oasis of calm at a time of turmoil.
