The service I received from O.W. Ellis was excellent and I couldn't fault it. I was treated with respect and dignity at all times. Annette was my lead contact for discussing any matters to do with the funeral, but if she wasn't available all staff I dealt with were friendly and efficient. I would be happy to recommend O.W Ellis to anyone needing the service of a funeral director.

I felt the arrangements were made with the utmost courtesy and respect. I felt supported and befriended by the lady I dealt with, she answered all my questions and was compassionate during a very difficult time. I was introduced to the lady who would be present on the day over the telephone (as I organized the funeral from a distance) and all I needed to know was carefully explained to me. The day itself was beautifully and sensitively managed. Thank you for making a difficult time so much easier.
Response from O. W. Ellis Funeral Directors

From the first phone call to say my mum had passed away till her funeral the staff at O W Ellis Hawarden were amazing I could ring and ask anything I needed to and they were always respected the family. When my mum arrived home on the day of her funeral the undertaker explained everything he was going to do. It was a wonderful service and can not thank them enough.

At such a difficult time, you couldn’t have been more supportive and helpful. Everyone we spoke to were empathetic. From picking up the phone to ask what their services included, to the funeral, we didn’t need to do a thing. This helped ease the situation for our family allowing us time to grieve. In addition, the service itself was beautiful. Thank you!

The whole team at OW Ellis made the most difficult time in our life less stressful. They communicated every step of the way, they were kind and understanding when we changed our minds on the detail. They showed us total respect and on the day of the funeral were like a safe guiding hand. We cannot thank Annette , Gary and Wendy enough.
Response from O. W. Ellis Funeral Directors
These kind words mean a great deal to the whole team. We always strive to give each family what they need even when times are difficult. Thank you for your lovely review.

Annette and Jane made sure they looked after everything for us as a family. Annette talked us through the whole process and made it easy during such a difficult time. Jane was amazing on the day and ensured we all felt comfortable and knew what to expect. Planning a funeral is never easy but Annette and Jane did all the hard work for us and made sure when we weren't thinking they took the pressure off for us. Thank you for the support you gave us and for looking after my dad when we no longer could.

They were kind,courteous and very helpful. With less than 24 hours to funeral I was told I needed video live link set up. I phoned them up and although it normally takes a period of time to set up it was all done in 20 minutes. It's this type of service that makes a difference.
Response from O. W. Ellis Funeral Directors

I can't praise the whole staff enough, they were very helpful, informative and companionate toward our whole family during our very sad time.
They made us feel very comfortable and delivered everything we requested for our Mum's funeral from start to finish, very personalised.
Even the after care was second to none.
We have unfortunately had to use O W Ellis on a few occasions now but would use no where else.
Brilliant device thank you so much.
