The funeral arrangements of my late auntie by Chris at T.J.THOMAS was compassionate, sympathetic and supportive. CHRIS made us feel comfortable nothing was too much trouble for him and we'd like to say a big thank you for his personal support and we would certainly recommend T J THOMAS&sons

I rang Age UK funeral plans to report aunty's death and requested a call back from Thomas J Thomas the next day, which they then did. It was Sophie who was the funeral arranger, and we dealt mostly with her afterwards. The visit to TJT to discuss arrangements was made quickly and they explained what aunty had asked for in her Age UK plan, and how much of that would be possible in the Covid situation.
A date was set for the funeral and Sophie kept us updated all the time. Everything was explained about the maximum of 30 people etc and it all went off very well on the day - as close to what aunty had wanted in her plan as could have been achieved. I had a courtesy call from Sophie some days later to check we'd been happy with the funeral, which we were. I'd certainly recommend Thomas J Thomas and also the idea of taking out a funeral plan.

Excellent,personalised service.I felt I was dealing with friends ,especially as I found out that two members of staff had been carers to my late cousin.
I cannot fault the treatment I received.The staff I dealt with ,Liz and Jodie ,acted with great empathy and professionalism.
They were a pleasure to deal with, and talked to me,and importantly ,listened.
They were a great support to me.
On the day of the funeral,in the middle of Lockdown in Wales, the team gave the mourners time to talk and mix as far as was safe.
I appreciated this at the interment; we were left to recover, take in the situation and talk.
In the absence of a wake this was so appreciated.
As for going above and beyond normal standards,yet another team member volunteered to drive as she had known my cousin.
Faultless service.Thankyou.
Response from Thomas J Thomas & Sons Funeral Directors

The staff at Thomas J Thomas provided a sympathetic, helpful and most efficient service during the time of my mother's funeral. It was a difficult period because of the Covid-19 lockdown, but they fielded all our queries and sorted all the little details with no fuss for the two services we held. They took much of the weight and worry off our shoulders, and I would warmly recommend this company.
Response from Thomas J Thomas & Sons Funeral Directors
Your family continues to be in our thoughts and we are honoured to have been able to give you the service you needed. I am glad that our team were there to guide you through the arrangements for your loved one at such a difficult time.

My siblings and I were looked after from the very start by Liz, she was amazing, she did her homework regarding my father, unfortunately the lovely surprise that she arranged (Harley's to ride Dad in) could not go ahead because of Covid, however John the celebrant ensured that he had a brilliant service that was personalised for my dad, he even dressed in a blue suit with sassy blue shoes, that was my Dads favourite colour, before my Dad was sent on his final journey John changed his suit jacket for a leather one and added a neck scarf, perfect for a bikers cremation. We gave John permission to film the service as inspiration for others, the Harley Revs were just perfect, Jodie was attentive on the day, she ensured that everything ran smoothly so thank you for that. You were all so professional, and we genuinely feel that we were made to feel important and not just another family saying goodbye to a loved one. I would 100% recommend you all.

Thomas J Thomas and sons are a very reliable family orientated funeral service provider, Kerry Beatan provided a very caring, sympathetic and professional service for my mother Betty Hartshorn. The rest of the team gave a great service on the day. Thomas J Thomas made a bad day better by providing a trouble free service as they have always done in the past with all my family funerals .
Much thanks
