Reviews of our services
My husband had been selected as 1 in the 10% of the population of the UK for a review into his death as can sometimes happen and holds up the process of getting the death certificate, we were also faced with the spring bank holiday, which pushed things back by a few days, but Margaret was not phased by any of this and went beyond the call of duty to ensure that all was arranged and in a timely manner, for my husband's funeral which took place on 23rd April 2019.
The days leading up to the funeral Margaret called to see if there was anything else she could do and to find out how we were coping with our loss. She even went out of her way to source an alternative printing company to get the order of service in time for the funeral, as the one regularly used wouldn't have been in a position to get them in time with the Bank Holiday, falling the day before the funeral.
On the day of the funeral everything was just as we had wanted, professionally done, with dignity. Thanks also to Kevin and his team for ensuring there were no problems whatsoever and to Margaret for coming along to the church to hand out the Order of Service.
