    Fiona Hall, at the Spondon office, who organised my dad’s funeral, is quite brilliant. She struck the right note with us from the moment we arrived, therefore making a traumatic and difficult process straightforward.   On the day itself, the drivers were superb: friendly, precise with their timing.
