From the moment we first contacted DJ Thomas & Sons we were treated with compassion and understanding. Rhys, and Rhian in particular, are truly an asset to the company. Rhian exceeded our expectations in the caring manner in which she processed everything. She even returned out of hours to enable my nephew who had travelled from Stoke to see his Nan the evening before the funeral. Also, we cannot thank Rhian enough for her support at the funeral home when we went to visit my Mam - such a traumatic experience made so much easier with Rhian’s presence. On the day of the funeral Rhys also surpassed our expectations - such a surprise when he paged the hearse to and from the family home. His gentle manner and professionalism throughout the service and the commital were exemplary. We really cannot thank them both enough.
Response from D. J. Thomas & Son Funeral Directors

It means a great deal when people take the time to share their experience and to highlight individuals in the team who have made a difference. Thank you for using our services for your loved one.

The team at the Bargoed Branch were really helpful and professional, making an extremely awful time much more bearable. Not only did they guide us through the funeral arrangements but Covid restrictions and also dealt with mum's funeral policy company. We can't thank them enough for the time and care they took with us.

A five star service was given by all I had to deal with. All the advice and suggestions were given with understanding, support and dignity. The printed order of service was very apt and light hearted without being frivolous. All in all a good experience for such a solemn occasion. Would highly recommend.

In the past 5years unfortunately we have lost 3 cherished family members and we have needed the services of DJ Thomas and Son.We couldn’t be happier with the compassionate service they provided,fulfilling all our requests and making us content to know that on the day of the funeral everything will go smoothly and we have nothing to worry about.

The staff could not have been better. Right from the outset they provided complete support for the family yet it was in a quiet, unobtrusive way. They were compassionate and caring yet totally professional. Nothing was too much trouble and any queries were answered as soon as possible and without fuss.
