All of the team at Doricotts were amazing, helping every step of the way for my dad's funeral and giving him the best send off we could. They kept us right through every step of the way, with a perfect demeanor throughout. I honestly can't praise them enough. We also used them in 2017 when my mum passed and were provided the same brilliant and amazing service.

When my husband passed away I got in touch with Henry Dorricott funeral directors as they are a local company. Right from the start they were extremely helpful with all the arrangements that had to be made. They came to the house and spoke with the family and understood what kind of funeral we wanted for my husband. They made everything straight forward and done with care and dignity. I am very grateful for all the help and support that was given to me and my family during this very sad and difficult time.

Absolutely amazing service, especially from Alan, who was in contact with me nearly every day, he advised me on every single thing about my mum's funeral and if it wasn't for him I would have had no clue what to do. Alan made everything stress free for me, he is the best in the business and I will be forever grateful. A massive thank you for all your help.

This is the second time that we have used Henry Dorricott Funeral Directors, both for my dad's funeral, 17 years ago and more recently for my mum's funeral, 2 weeks ago. On both occasions we received a first class, professional service from the minute we contacted them. They kept in contact with us frequently right up until the day of the funeral. Nothing was ever a bother to them. On the day of the funeral the limousine arrived promptly at the time they said it would arrive. The full process from start to finish was absolutely excellent. We would have no hesitation in recommending Henry Dorricott Funeral Directors to anyone looking for a professional service, following the death of a loved one.
Response from Henry Dorricott Funeral Directors

Very professional and caring from our first contact to the day of the funeral itself. Everything went as explained to us and it resulted in a very special send off for our mum. Highly recommend.

When my husband passed i went directly to Henry Dorricott.
The service which i received was second to none.
Both Henry and Matt Steele were excellent, they dealt with everything and always kept me in touch with all aspects of the proceedings. Matt called every other day to advise what was happening and to ensure that the family were comfortable with every thing, and also asked how we, as a family, were coping.
The service was carried out by a Humanist, and was very good, again organised by Matt.
The link for the funeral, for those who could not attend, was also organised and was seen in both Australia and Newfoundland, the friends and relatives who took advantage of this service were very grateful, and found this part of the proceedings made them feel a part of the ceremony.
Nothing was too much bother, and on the day of the funeral, Matt ensured that all went as planned.
I can only say that i would advise anyone who requires a Funeral Director, to call on Henry Dorricott, for their compassion and assistance at a time when the family of the deceased really need a "friend", Thank You both Matt and Henry.

From the moment I first contacted them in the middle of the night to inform them of my late wife's death and arrange for the removal of her body from the house, all arrangements for my late wife's funeral were conducted and carried out in a calm, compassionate but efficient, highly professional, and dignified manner. I was given full information and detailed explanations but at no time did I feel under pressure or that I was being coerced to make a decision one way or the other. I could not have asked for more from my Funeral Director who as well as providing advice and virtually daily updates on progress with arrangements, regularly enquired about my own wellbeing. I am now in the process of arranging my own funeral plan with Henry Dorricott Funeral Directors.
