I must say how professional Katie was in helping myself arrange my mums funeral. I have never had to do anything like this before and Katie made it as smooth as it was . The drivers of the family cars and the horse were very professional on the day as well. My dad was over joyed with the lovely photo that the company had framed of my mum as well. Very touching

My brother passed away recently and had a funeral plan pre-arranged with Thomas Marin. When I contacted them I was at a loss as I had never had to deal with a death and a funeral before by myself. It was Katy whom I first met and she did an admirable job putting me at ease and leading me through step by step the subsequent actions to be taken. She is calm, confident and thorough in her work and took time to listen to me and my many questions etc. The day of the funeral went as planned down to my last detail. Thankyou to Katy and the rest of the Thomas Marin team.
Response from Thomas Marin Funeral Directors
We are incredibly grateful that you took the time to leave us this review, it enables us to provide the right care for each family. I am happy that the pre-paid funeral plan made it easier to arrange the service for your Brother and it is good to know that we managed to make the day run as smoothly as possible for you.

Every thing went well and the service from Thomas Marin was very good.
One point, as the funeral was a Monday there were some issues with flowers and Sunday deliveries, but thanks to Lorraine at Marins and the florist at Petals all went well having said that a Tuesday funeral would have been easier.
That being said I would recommend Thomas Marins Lorraine guided us theough the arrangements including notices and order of service

From the initial meeting to the end of funeral day, Thomas Marin were superb. everything was done with such professionalism. Lorraine guided us through the whole process, explained the choices we had and the decisions we had to make and all the costs involved. All parts of the day of the funeral - the funeral mass, the transfer to the cemetery and the burial there - were carried out seamlessly by Donald and his team - no hiccups, no stumbles. Well done everyone.
