Marcus was absolutely wonderful from the time he came to remove my mum from the nursing home 25/5/19 right up until I went to collect her ashes on friday 15/6/19. He was caring he as such a soft speaking voice he put us all at ease when he came to see us. He put up with me swapping the days and times I had arrange to see my mu at the chapel of rest. It was a pleasure to meet him

D G Attwells did my dad proud on his recent passing. I would highly recommend this funeral director as they also looked after my mum when she passed 28 years ago. Nothing is too much trouble and their compassion and care is second to none. Marcus and his colleagues are amazing and will look after everything that you need. They take all of the stress out of planning a funeral and are always available for advice and any questions that you may have. I will be forever in debt for the way that they looked after my dad from collecting him from his residence to the day that we laid him to rest... thank you once again.

So impressed with the courteous and professional manner in which Attwell’s undertook the funeral arrangements for us. Anthony Worth was so helpful and took care of everything, down to the smallest of details, to ensure everything went to plan. We would highly recommend Attwell’s.

Our family was treated with the upmost of care and respect during a difficult time. Marcus was caring and nurturing yet easy to speak with. He made the whole process so much easier both practically and emotionally than what we were expecting. Thank you

Excellent service, and Marcus went far beyond the call of duty. He showed us nothing but care and compassion throughout, a true professional and credit to D G Attwells.  D G Attwells and Marcus made sure that my dad’s funeral was first class. Thank you so much, Julie Killick
