As a family we can’t thank Lee and his team at Freedom Funerals enough for his suppport and guidance through what is for anyone a difficult time. He is a breath of fresh air with his approach and thoughtfulness, particularly the time taken to get to know us and through us our mum to make sure we had exactly what we needed. We have been singing his praises to everyone we talk to and the friends and family attending on the day thought it was a lovely service, so much was due to his care and attention and recommendation of the celebrant who he matched to us as a family which could not have gone any better. He made the whole process so much easier for us, again we cannot thank him enough.

Lee is a wonderful man and provided the best service for our Dad. His understanding and sympathetic approach throughout the process was more than we hoped for. Couldn't ask for a better funeral director.

I would urge anybody finding themselves in the difficult position of having to arrange a funeral, to chat with Lee at Freedom Funerals. His approach is refreshing and progressive and he will listen to your needs, before putting together a genuinely personalised plan to accommodate your wishes. Lee was pivotal in transforming what I feared would be a heart-wrenching occasion that I just 'had to get through', into a calming, dignified and rather beautiful Farewell Service for my Dad.
