Lee of Freedom funerals provided us with a professional and compassionate service which helped massively in a difficult time.My husband of 32 years died very suddenly and totally unexpectedly at the age of 60. Lee helped us to have the funeral service that was absolutely perfect for my husband. I do not think we could have found anyone better to help us give John the exact send off we his family wanted.

Thank you so much for your compassion and support in arranging my Dad’s funeral. We live 140 miles away from where the funeral was taking place and we were so lucky to come across the services of Freedom Funerals. Lee was professional, understanding, friendly and gave me all the information I needed that put my mind at rest at this very difficult time. We met Lee again a few days later to make the arrangements. Once again, he put us at ease and emphasised there was no rush. We ordered the coffin, discussed the service and chose the music. Lee conducted the service, it was a wonderful celebration and a send-off beautifully organised and carried out. Just how we wanted it. Lee has been fantastic and we can’t recommend Freedom Funerals highly enough. Thank you for making everything feel so right on the day.   Click here to start Chat

Lee led us sensitively through the options for our mother’s funeral and cremation, encouraging the whole family to be involved. Although it was a small and simple affair it meant so much for us to be able to say goodbye to our loved one in this way. Thank you so much.

From our first meeting with Lee to our last, we found Lee to be very likeable, helpful in everyway, excellent communication and can't thank him enough. He made an extremely hard time a little easier to manage. We will highly recommend Freedom Funerals to family and friends in the future, cannot fault his service and his commitment. Thank you Lee, from Tony, Mandy & Tim
