Jenny was most helpful in dealing with the initial arrangements and getting the cremation booked in for us at short notice. We found the traditional top hat and tails look worn by Harvey, our Funeral Director, very smart and dignified as he led the cortege from the Chapel and into the Crematorium. Thank you.

Harvey and staff couldn't do enough for the family and each step was explained to us to help ensure a befitting cremation for Agnes. Everything was carried out with dignity and a willingness to help in any way. Service was first class and orated perfectly. After care was very professional . I would recommend Pagans in a heartbeat.

The service & care I received from John Pagan & Son and Dignity, following the bereavement of my mother was nothing less than incredible.

My mum had suffered severe pain in her final hours and her passing was extremely traumatic. To make matters worse, I had no funeral plan or insurance to cover the costs.

In the beginning, I had a different Funeral Director dealing with my mum's arrangments. Who removed my mum's body and once she was in their care. I was told to make an appointment, where the Director hit me with a £2000 up-front fee 'out of the blue'.
I was told I HAD to pay this £2000 up-front fee before I could even view my mum. It felt like I was being held at ransom by a Sheriff officer working for the HMRC. It was horrendous.

However, the staff at John Pagan & Son put this right. They didn't require a £2000 up-front fee. John Pagan's staff took my financial situation into consideration and compiled a more affordable funeral. Considerably cheaper than the previous one too.

Staff from John Pagan's immediately removed my mum from the extortionate funeral parlour and took her into their care. Where she was prepared for cremation and she looked absolutely beautiful, her hair was done in curls, make-up on, looking absolutely at peace, she really was beautiful. The service and eulogy were so beautifully delivered, everyone who attended the funeral commented that it was the most touching service they had ever been to.

I can not recommend or thank the staff at John Pagan's and Dignity enough. They turned a living nightmare into the most beautiful funeral that I had ever seen. They carried out my mum's wishes to the letter and thought of all the things that I had overlooked in my time of grief. Compassionate, kind and professional staff who go the extra mile and who take excellent care of the living as well as the dead.
