Totally impressed with the support we received from D J Thomas & Sons with the arrangements for my mother's funeral arrangements. From going through selected songs and hymns to the personal support for my well being before during and after my mother's funeral . Can't recommend them high enough .

At a very difficult time following the death of both my parents, D. J. Thomas, and more specifically Kerry at the Ystrad Mynach Branch provided a caring, professional service which could not be faulted in any way. From the start to the end Kerry was available to provide the support and guidance I needed at such a difficult time.

The whole process was handled with dignity, respect and thoughfulness. Every member of staff went above and beyond to make this sad day a little easier to get through.
The senior member of staff at your Ystrad Mynach branch was outstanding along with the young gentleman at the Chapel of Rest in Bargoed

I was so lucky to have Nikki Stevens as my go to person with regards to my mum's funeral. Nikki was so supportive and helpful in making all the arrangements with me, Nikki even recognised the relationship between my mum and her dogs to offer me that the dogs could attend the funeral and she would look after them for me. I truly believe that Nikki went above and beyond what was expected from her, she is an asset to your company and I would highly recommend your services.

The staff at D J Thomas in both Bargoed and Ystrad Mynach have been extremely helpful in making the organisation of the very sad occasion of my Mother's funeral both uncomplicated and calm. They have been kind, compassionate and thoughtful in making suggestions, explaining every step of the procedure clearly and communicating throughout. I am very grateful to them.
