  • 5 Tracy Campbell 16th Nov 2018

    I cannot thank Philip, Darren and the Team enough for the way they dealt with my mum's funeral. Philip went above and beyond his role to support us, look after mum and give us guidence when required. He took a personal interest in our situation, he knew my mum liked cream cakes so he bought one, gift wrapped it and put it in the herse with her flowers - we were all so touched by his thoughtfulness. Philip took control of the situation, was contactable at all times and nothing was too much trouble for him. My mum was treated with the utmost respect at all times and on the day of her funeral even moreso. Philip and the Team made an extremely difficult and emotional time as stress free as possible. I would highly recommend this Company. They are extremely professional, compassionate and offer a personal service to families. I cannot thank Philip enough for everything he did for us.
