From the moment we contacted DJ Evans Forse and a mutual time was agreed for us to visit the funeral home.On meeting Mo, she was very kind and understanding in our needs, she explained the funeral arrangements to us and the timetable of events that would lead up to the day of the funeral itself. The day of the funeral everything went as she described it would, for which we are very grateful.

From start to finish, everybody we spoke with was kind and helpful and at such a difficult time, Russell helped make everything a little easier. There was much patience and consideration and Russell went above and beyond to ensure that we, as a family, were informed and involved throughout.

I live in Devon, my dearest Aunt passed away in Cardiff, all my family are from there.
It was a difficult task to arrange a funeral, register a death and see to all the necessary arrangements while enduring Covid ruling, lockdown in England and in Wales.
I cannot emphasise enough how efficient this company was. Handling everything for me & guiding me through with compassion, sympathy and care.
The funeral was only attended by 6 of us at Thornhill Crematorium. It was all done very well indeed. I highly recommend these Funeral Directors.
Response from D J Evans Forse & Co Funeral Directors

DJ Evans Forse & Co Funeral Directors were extremely professional. When a member of your family dies it is important to have clear guidance and help. During a pandemic things can be even more complicated and stressful. All the worry and any concerns we had were quickly dealt with in a caring fuss free manner .We were pleased with the service provided for the funeral .If it is possible to have a lovely funeral then that is what we had. Alison Davies was the celebrant chosen for us. She really gave my brother the service he deserved. A warm lovely lady who spoke so well. Thank you very much DJ Evans &Force.

A big thank you to Lee, Tracey and the team. Their help in arranging my father’s funeral made this sad and daunting occasion one which Dad would have been proud of.
From my first contact, they clearly outlined the whole process in a professional, compassionate and appropriately friendly manner.
Information booklets were provided to take away from the initial meeting and impartial advice and ideas were provided as required so that we, as a family, could personalise the funeral to reflect Dad’s character.
I was impressed by the communication between the whole team and the effective, timely liaison with other parties on our behalf, for example florists, printers and the vicar. The floral displays and orders of service were lovely as was the Reverend Gareth Evans.
The day of the funeral went smoothly and as planned.
I have found communication with Lee, Tracey and the team before and after the funeral very easy via the phone or e mail, I live outside of Wales, and they have provided the necessary support at each stage of the process.

Nothing was too much trouble for Tracy who coordinated everything we needed to be organized with professionalism and empathy. She guided us through the full process as well as organising everything and dealing with administrative issues. She liaised with everyone necessary on our behalf which lightened our load considerably, and offered valid ideas and help with things we had no idea how to deal with. Tracy's communication on every arrangement before, during and after the funeral service was second to none, even out of what we considered would be normal working hours. We couldn't have chosen anyone better to help with our funeral arrangements.
