A very professional family run funeral directors. From the time they are asked to look after a loved one then you become part of there family. If there is anything they can do in anyway to make it as easy and respectful as possible they will. From the time when they looked after my bro last year and then to look after my mum from when she past to they day we layed her to rest. Just outstanding professional wonderful people. God bless and thank you to you all. Lee Hearn.

Lee and his staff were extremely supportive from start to finish. very professional and understanding. They took their time in explaining things and listening to what you want and did not try to sell anything that was not needed. They were the only funeral place that did not try to get any money from you before even meeting them . Well done Lee and staff and thankyou .

The reason for giving freedom funerals a five star is the personal touch that Lee gave to us as a family, it was exceptional.Lee explained everything from start to finish what stood out was his honesty and nothing we asked for was ever to much for him to help us with. So from myself and the family we would like to thank Lee and his team very much for their help and support through the duration of planning my sister Catrionas funeral. Regards Martha Liam & Roger
