Sadly this was the second time in a very short period of time that we had to use the services of Mark Shaw but as previously, the level of customer care and compassion was just right & they were flexible and understanding of our needs. A family member commented, "the funeral directors were very good, you hardly noticed that they were there", I think that says a lot.

Very good indeed.  We could not have asked for better.  Everything was done as we wanted and with care and compassion.   The cars were fantastic and the flowers beautiful.  Would recommend Mark Shaw highly.

We are very grateful to Mark and his colleagues for helping us meet our sister's wishes for care after her death and her burial. Mark treated our requests with sensitivity and professionalism and without judgement, offering advice when we asked or were unsure, but never imposing his own opinions, to deliver a highly personalised service. At the burial, where we wanted to do much of it ourselves, he and his colleagues were reassuring and supportive, there when we needed them and otherwise unobtrusive.
