Peter Ridd 18th Mar 2017

From our first call to Mark at Sillifants in Exeter the help and support was professional - exemplary. Mark made things so simple and clear and dealt with any questions we had. At what is such a distressing time, we couldn't have hoped for anything more and we can't thank Mark and the other attendants enough.

    Everybody and I mean everybody I met said what a wonderful service you me John and Stephen conducted for John's farewell. As you may have known I was able to talk to John about his funeral and what he would like in it, hymn's, choir, location and burial, and we were able to include everything he wished. We were just the administrators of John's wishes and we all did a very good job. And a very big thank-you to you for all your help in making sure everything went according to plan.
