Cant thank you enough for the care and service provided. I came in without an appointment, and a request slightly out of the norm, but the whole process was so supportive and I was continually kept informed. Thank you so much for making such a difficult time so simple.

The most appropriately named business I have ever dealt with. Both of the people we dealt with were just wonderful. Kind. Open. Listening. I had no idea that my mum's funeral could be such a beautiful thing; dignified, personal and uplifting.

This company went over an above to ensure everything was done to my requirements. I cannot speak highly enough of the staff at the company. They were very professional in everything they did. Special mention goes to Billie who explained everything in detail and nothing was too much trouble. Billie also remained in contact during the whole process to ensure I was happy with all the arrangements. A really caring company with excellent staff.

From the start Billie and the the team were so professional they treated us with dignity and respect. I was worried because the insurance seemed to take for ages to pay out. I don't like debt. One phone call to J Pagans and my mind was at peace. Frank helped me with the eulogy and everybody was impressed. My family has used J Pagans for generations and when my time comes so will i. John Pagan @Son are undertakers you can trust.

I would highly recommend John Pagan and son, Mathew and his colleagues were all exceptionally respectful and attentive during this difficult time. We were guided, advised and most of all listened to during all the arrangements. Always there to help in any way they could. Mathew and the team made our mothers funeral personal and beautiful. We cannot praise them all enough. Everything they did for us during this difficult time is very much appreciated by us all.

Fantastic communication throughout ensuring everything planned was in place. Matthew at John Pagan was very friendly and professional and arranged our requested celebrant etc without any issues. A courtesy phonecall the day before the service to check everything was ok and confirm all was in place was a nice touch.

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.
