Following the death of our mother on Boxing Day 2021, the staff at Russells, especially Gillian made this difficult time so much easier for us to deal with. Gillian’s thoughtful manner and professional approach to everything makes her a real asset to the company. We were kept fully informed of all arrangements and everything was dealt with in such a dignified and compassionate manner. Many thanks also to Michelle for her excellent preparation of mum she did an amazing job. On the day of the funeral Johnny did an impeccable job at the cemetery and he is a real credit to the company.
I would highly recommend Russells for their dedication to the customer.

Under difficult circumstances, the Funeral of our Mother was carried out by Russsells with the greatest of dignity. The staff in Holborn Avenue could not have been more helpful. The girl on the day was amazing in helping us to to carry out the arrangements for the day. The guys in charge of her journey to Roselawn were very kind and caring. I could not possibly recommend everyone involved highly enough. Our sincerest thanks to everyone for their serenity and kindness.

We were very happy with the service provided by Russells Funeral Directors in Bangor (as part of the Dignity group) following the death of my Father on 10 April 2019. Everything was handled both professionally and sensitively by the staff, which included Jonathan, Gillian and Valerie. Things were explained to us clearly, and my Mother's wishes were respected throughout. As well as this, when Russells advised that certain things would happen by a certain time, all of these commitments were met and we were kept advised along the way. We would wholeheartedly recommend the service provided by Russells to others.
