  • If you choose to arrange the funeral with us, you will be given the option of a complimentary Funeral Notice. We will set it up for you using the details discussed during the arrangements. All we need is an email address.

Dealt with Scott from the outset and was treated with utmost respect when organising the funeral. Didn’t feel any pressure at all to go for more expensive details, it was all what we wanted & nothing else.
On the day the cars turned up on time, and again the staff showed nothing but respect. Couldn’t fault them for anything.
Thanks for everything being perfect.

The day Jackie passed away staff were very kind and respectful. I went to visit Jackie at the funeral parlour and I was so happy he looked nice and peaceful at rest. Funeral arrangements were made easier with good advice and recommendations which ended up being a beautiful service . Just what we wanted for Jackie.
