Tricia at James Scott, Funeral Directors, was our main point of contact. She was sympathetic, compassionate and patient when dealing with the many different points to be covered. She guided us through these efficiently and always had time to listen to us.
Nothing was rushed, but if there was a timescale to be adhered to she always let us know by gently reminding us.
They are local and very easy to deal with.
