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

Lee and his son provide such a wonderful and personal service, I would recommend them in a heart beat. They are so personal from start to finish

From the moment I first met Lee at freedom Funerals, to discuss my mother's funeral, I felt reassured that he understood what I was imagining for her funeral. He didn't impose his ideas, he didn't try to sell me a package. Instead he listened to what I wanted, and planned a service which truly delivered my vision. Sure he made suggestions, but the decisions were totally mine. Indeed, after the funeral, just about every guest took time to tell me how uplifting they had found the occasion. It's difficult to say that a funeral was a "pleasant occasion" but my mother's send off was exactly that. There were more smiles than tears as we celebrated her life. I totally recommend Freedom Funerals to anyone who wants an individually planned funeral, rather than an "off the peg" package which most other funeral directors force on you. Thank you Lee for your personal approach and support.

Lee provided exactly the service I wanted for my wife. Most funeral directors would have given me a supermarket pick last. I was so pleased he listened and delivered perfectly, the service we requested. A big thank you from my family!!
