We have used the services of W James & Sons, Fonmon previously and have always found them to be excellent.
When my Father passed away recently, we had no hesitation in contacting W. James & Sons who acted promptly and gave us great reassurance. We knew that we were in safe hands and that my Father would be treated with the greatest respect and dignity.
We were grateful for John's guidance and advice throughout the process. We were particularly appreciative of his advice and support in preparing the grave, as my Father was buried at home on the family farm.
Our telephone calls to the office were dealt with promptly and efficiently and Vanessa assisted us patiently in the planning of the funeral programme.
Thank you to all at W James & Sons for the highly professional and efficient service provided. At such a difficult time, it is so important to be able to have complete confidence in the funeral directors.
