Mark and the team have been amazing. Nothing was too much trouble, even late changes to the Order of Service. Both Mum and I can not thank you enough for everything you have done for Dad. Kindest regards Chris & Yvonne

At such a difficult and confusing time for our family Sillifants were an island of calm and compassion, they had a gentle and straightforward solution to everything we asked and we felt that our family's welfare was their priority at all times.

    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.
