The services from the beginning when helping get Craig back home to the funeral. Very professional and comforting, the funeral was excellent which made my day a little bit better giving Craig the funeral he deserved. Thank you Anthony Thomas for all your help and the rest of your team. Also thank you Andrew for the lovely service Craig had.

    We recently lost our beloved Dad and came across Lyndsay Ellis while searching the internet for a funeral director and from that very 1st phone call I made and spoke to Ben they were absolutely outstanding. They guided us with everything they could, put us in touch with Paulo to make the flowers. We decided to have an engraved Coffin for our Dad and we were blown away by the detail it had. Me and my Sister cannot thank Lyndsay and his team enough for everything you done to make our Dad's final journey such a beautiful one. Thank you soo much guys x

  • 5 Damien Williams 11th Nov 2018

    At this difficult time is was so comforting to have the help of the Vale Funeral Services. As soon as I walked through the door I knew I had made the right decision. At a time when everything seems upsetting, the extra time and attention that Lyndsay gave me to go over the details of the funeral of my wife I could never thank him enough. I can honestly say the worst day of my life was made so my easier by Vale Funeral Services I cannot recommend or thank them enough. Truly amazing

    Lyndsay Ellis replied
    Thank you Damien for your lovely words, my thoughts are with you all as a family.
