Dignity came very highly recommended from people who had the misfortune to lose familiy members, from the first contact regarding my wife's passing,the staff, who collected her from the house to the laying of the ashes has been absolutly outstanding.
Duncan M, was my POC i explained what we wanted and if there were any questions he was only a phone call away. he took control of the proceedings and ensured that our wishes were carried out to the letter.
The staff we came in contact with were curtious well presented and very helpful, i have recommended Dignity to a work colleague who asked about a good funeral directer, and i would recommend again, a first class service by a first class team, a very big thank you from the Jenkins family for helping give Rita Jenkins a wonderful send off, thank you.

I had to use Robert Howells services after the loss of my Mother at the start of the year. They were very supportive, taking time to talk through arrangements and talk to me as a person not just a customer.Not quite as we planned due to covid restrictions but a beautiful grave side send off. A beautiful rainbow at the end but they cant guarantee that for every one. Thank you .

The service we received was excellent from Robert Howells.

Duncan came out and went through everything with understanding and patience.

They advise and keep in touch all along to the day of the funeral.

They made the whole process a lot easier for me.

I would recommend and would most definitely use them again.

My husband was in a nursing home when he passed . I had already submitted Robert Howells as the funeral directer.
So Castleford rang them ,and everything went very smoothly. I had phone call next day and sue came 2 days later and the arrangements were carried out as I wanted . Without any hitches.
The actual day of the funeral was taken by Duncan and everything went as planned .
All the family were very pleased , as a very sad day was carried out as planned .
I would like to thank everyone who we're involved.

I cannot rate S at Robert Howells highly enough. She made a very difficult situation so much easier with her kindness and efficiency. Following everything up with phone calls to clarify details and I especially appreciated the calls that happened after the funeral to check on my well being. The funeral director was great too, she was calm on the day of the funeral and reassured us all that everything would be ok. I had a last minute request for a photograph to be placed on my Mum's coffin and the was done without fuss. The whole team at Robert Howells Caldicot were just fantastic, they were supportive but not overbearing. They arranged a visit to the Chapel of rest for my brother and his son and the gentleman that was there was so kind and thoughtful and aware of the difficult situation for the two men but reassured me that my Mum looked fine and not to worry. The funeral director also carried out the burial of my Mum' ashes with the Vicar, this was done with dignity, kindness and respect for us all. Thank you.

We were very happy with the services supplied by Robert Howells and they were very easy to communicate with.
I contacted them on a Sunday with a small query and was rewarded by a response saying they were closed until the following day but I was contacted within minutes by phone and the query was answered to my satisfaction.
We couldn't have asked for a better service.

Everyone at Howells and sons was very supportive, caring and sympathetic when my sister and I arranged our fathers funeral earlier this year. We hadn’t had to do anything like it before but we were helped all the way by the staff. They called me regularly as unfortunately my father passed away out of the area and had to be taken to the funeral directors. They didn’t push us to pay for things we didn’t need and didn’t want. The whole experience was made less painful by their very experienced friendly staff. Thank you.
