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. 

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, personally, want to thank you for the way in which all members of your staff were sympathetic to my enquiries and willing to help in whatever way possible. Sincerely Dr William Rawson and family
