I would like to thank all the staff for everything they did for the family during such a different time.
They were so kind and considerate of our needs and feelings. It was so nice to know that they were always ready to help no matter what the queries were.
One of the most important things I think need mentioned is that throughout the arrangements the staff call and make sure that everything they are doing is correct and that we were happy with it.
Dealing with the death of a loved one is the hardest thing we have to do as a family but with such lovely, warm & helpful staff this is made a little easier.
Thank you all so much.

Dorricott’s provided an excellent service based on funeral plan agreed in 2007. The staff were excellent especially Margaret who had agreed the plan at that time so it was wonderful to find she was still there to organise final arrangements. Staff very caring and sensitive. Would definitely recommend them.

was still there to execute my old friend’s instructions
