Sillifant's provided an excellent service, organising everything from the orders of service to the flowers and music. Everything ran smoothly on the day, on that basis I wouldn't hesitate in recommending them.

    Mark and all the staff were extremely professional. Put my mind at ease regarding the arrangements for the funeral and always kept me up to date with things. I live long distance from Exeter and telephoned at all hours of the day and night and not once did any of the staff complain. They looked after my relative very well and treated her with the upmost respect.

    Andrews ashes were not returned to me as agreed - meaning his final wish was not fulfilled - shame on those who went behind our backs, I know he will never forgive you for that!

    Martin Sillifant replied
    The family who made all the funeral arrangements were more than happy with the service that we provided. Unfortunately there are sometimes disagreements within families which we are not responsible for.

  • 5 Bronwyn Carson 16th Jan 2018

    Martin and Sarah Sillifant were caring and considerate but also full of intelligent advice and great recommendations. They treated our loved one with great care and respect, leading us confidently through the decisions and day of the service. We were so grateful to have found such genuine people and the celebrant and florist they recommended also reflected them well as they were equally great in their approach and in the quality of their skills. I would definitely use Sillifants again and highly recommend them. They made it all as easy as could be and were priced very reasonably. 

  • 5 Bill Rawson 16th Jan 2018

    Thank you so much for your excellent service. You steered us through a difficult time relating to the fixing of the date of the funeral. This was done in such a caring manner.

    I would like to thank M Sillifant & Sons for their excellent, caring service. They were very professional and considerate throughout a very difficult time for us as a family. We left the full arrangements in their very capable hands and a very sad day went without any problems. I really can't thank them enough.
