What our families say

Angela and her husband Stuart were extremely helpful during the whole process. Everything went so smoothly on the day of my father's funeral, especially during this difficult time with Covid19.
A Pelling
Angela kept me informed throughout the process and helped me out with music choices. By offering the webcast in these difficult times it was of great benefit to those who wished to be present but couldn't attend. Never expected that but it was great.
P Avent
Very considerate, friendly and helpful service. The situation was handled very well in difficult circumstances.
A Smith
Appreciated the dignified way they treated us in what is an upsetting situation, especially giving the restrictions we were having to face in this uncertain time.
