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

Lee and his Son Will, helped us to organise a wonderful service for my lovely Dad. They were attentive and respective at all times. My Dad was a keen fisherman and we were able to put a landing net, rod and fishing hat with his coffin. Lee was always at the end of the phone and happy to help us at all times. I would recommend Freedom Funerals to anyone who  wants a special service for their family member.
