    M. SILLIFANT AND SONS have recently assisted my mother and I to arrange for my father's funeral service and family burial. Throughout the decision making process the funeral director was completely professional, considerate and supportive. We highly recommend anyone to choose this long established family run business specialising in this field. It can be a very difficult time, made easier by experienced professionals.

  • 5 Joanne Smith 21st Dec 2018

    Martin & Sarah were very sympathetic to our wishes & helped guide us through the whole process. They also helped us to secure a particular minister who we felt very at ease with. Nothing was too much trouble and they were very open & clear with us when needed. Silifants had sorted my Dads service 30 years prior hence why we returned. I’m pleased we did and would 100% recommend.
