Lee was professional throughout. He and his team were dignified and respectful throughout the funeral and kept me up to date on things that were happening, nothing was too much trouble. They made a difficult day pass without a hitch.

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.

I made the best decision using DJ Evans. My dad died suddenly a few weeks before Xmas. Knowing I couldn't cope with having to wait until January for the funeral I rang DJ Evans the following day. I had no death certificate and didn't really know what I was doing and needed to do as was still in shock. Luckily I spoke to LN, who was magnificent. LN booked the funeral last opening before Xmas shut down and helped me by guiding me to what I needed to do. When something like this happens your mind is in shock and then doesn't seem to work due to the grief and I am so grateful that LN was there to support me and my family. Everything we wanted was done with grace and a quiet confidence by DJ Evans. LN rang regularly to keep me up to speed with the arrangements and gently helped me to make decisions. Everything went like clockwork and myself and my family were able to grieve safe in the knowledge that LN and his colleagues had organised everything and let us know what to do when required. I feel we had more than a funeral service, we had a family care package, where everything was done to the highest standard for us and we had no additional issues to check and worry about, we were able to slowly accept what had happened and come to terms with our grief. The aftercare has also been wonderful and I cannot thank or recommend DJ Evans highly enough. At the worse time in your life, these people are compassionate, efficient, empathetic, supportive with a kindness that instils confidence. I would never go to any other company, EVER. Thank you DJ Evans for your unwavering support and service. CL

The whole operation was thoroughly professional and made getting through the process much easier than it could have been. The initial discussions were very easy, the more difficult subtleties were handled well and the aftercare was excellent. All of our guests at the funeral all said that they thought it went well as a quiet, simple farewell was what my mother wanted and that is what we asked for.

I have used D J Evans Forse & Funeral Directors twice within the past 12 months. The service has been second to none. The Funeral Director showed compassion, sympathy and empathy to myself and other family members. They provided dignity in they way they spoke to me and reassured me that the service will be my service which is what is was.

They arranged for a Celibate who was brilliant and helped us through a very difficult time. They listened to what we had to say about the deceased and wrote a fantastic Eulogy which brought a smile, tear and laughter for everyone that was present.

I cannot express how pleased I was with all the staff that dealt with the service.
