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.

My husband passed away whilst we were on holiday in Nashville, Tennessee on Thursday 6th June, 2019 and although losing a loved one at any time is horrific, when in happens on holiday it is totally unbearable. I found a fantastic funeral home in Nashville who were amazing is assisting me in making arrangements, but I felt I needed to contact someone at home too, as a family we have used Henry Dorricott Funeral Directors on a number of occasions so I had no hesitation in contacting them..........and when I did there was Alan at the end of the phone, he was just amazing keeping in touch with me every day and also speaking to the Funeral Home in Nashville, to ensure all that he could help with was being done. He couldn't do much until Stewart came home, but just speaking to him everyday made such a difference, when Stewart finally arrived home Alan was amazing supporting myself and the family and making all the arrangements and fine details for Stewart's service was perfect and it was, even after the service the follow up care has been amazing. I also want to thank all the other staff Margaret, the drivers and staff who were part of Stewart final journey...The are a credit to your Company.
