Ian George and his wife Denesha listened to my thoughts and requests on how I would like my late Mother's funeral service to be carried out, showing kindness and understanding. Offering professional advice in a relaxed manner, no rush, when deciding on the finer details like the Order of Service, which my family and I truly appreciated, (I had requested a number of photographs & poems) which was a lovely tribute to my Mum. I requested Ian himself to take the Service, he read the tribute for my Mother with much warmth, thoughtfulness and above all with a smile, which was perfect for my loving Mum who had had, a sense of humour. I am very pleased to have chosen a family run funeral service, who carried out their very important role in looking after their clients, so admirably, thank you. Mrs Chris Ryder Hon Alderman

Both Ian and Denisha were excellent. They were very professional and supportive at a very difficult time, nothing was too much trouble for them. On they day of the funeral, again, Ian was excellent, he made sure everything ran smoothly. We have had so many positive comment about the service, this couldn't have happened with out Ian and Denisha's support. Thank you.

  • 5 Clive Herbert 24th Mar 2019

    Everyone who attended said it was a wonderful celebration of her life and was so like her. Thank you for everything you have done at this difficult time.

  • 5 Marilyn Burn 2nd Mar 2019

    Kind, efficient, and prepared to take whatever trouble it took to get the funeral as I wanted it.

  • 5 Angela Shepherd 25th Feb 2019

    Ian was absolutely first class, providing a professional and respectful service that allowed us to say goodbye to Mum with a celebration of her life rather than just grief at her death. Ian and Denesha have managed to keep the best of tradition but include the best of technology to prepare and run the funeral. We interviewed a few funeral directors before deciding who we would use to make saying goodbye special. Ian George was by far the clearest and most sensitive in presenting his service. Nothing was rushed and we never felt under pressure to make decisions too quickly. He presented various options but if we preferred anything different he did his best to facilitate that. Mum was always very particular about how she looked, and Ian dressed her, did her make-up and hair to ensure that she looked as she would have wanted when people visited her at his chapel of rest. And, although few people like mentioning this, he gave the best value - for example, the limosines we at our disposal for the funeral, wake and committal, with no additional charges. Ian and Denesha always returned calls and emails very quickly, no matter what the time of day or evening. Thank you Ian and Denesha, Mum had a really good send off with all the friends and relatives (80 of them) agreeing.

    Ian was very caring and made a huge difference at a difficult time. A wonderful professional service with advice when it was requested. All my family are very grateful for how he handled things from the day of my Mother's death.

    Ian treated us with such care and accommodated all our wishes. I can’t thank him and his team enough. 

  • 5 Sharon Heywood 11th Dec 2018

    Ian and Danesha have helped me to arrange two funerals over the past year. They're excellent. Kind, respectful and caring. I knew I was in good hands at an extremely sad and difficult time. Ian led the services and both were very lovely, appropriate and what my family members wanted. It's important to have someone who is both knowledgeable experienced who can help guide you step by step through the processes. Would recommend them to anyone who has the unfortunate need to organize a funeral for their loved one.

  • 5 Dinah Grigg 20th Nov 2018

    Ian was most supportive and understanding at a difficult time. He helped us to make decisions and enabled us to personalise the funeral in ways we would not have considered, making the funeral as individual and as special as we could have hoped for.

  • 5 Maurice Saunders 15th Oct 2018

    Everything was perfect. Every little question was answered and every request was handled with positivity and respect. The most painful of all circumstances was made more bearable than I ever thought possible. The biggest complement I can give, and the family all agree, is that Ann would have approved of everything that was done. Thank you so much,

    We were very pleased with the personal service you provided. Very friendly, approachable and had the human touch which we needed at this time of distress and emotional turmoil. You were both thoughtful and empathetic and managed to introduce humour appropriately into a sensitive situation. You gave us time which was needed to make choices appropriately and guidance when it was was needed. Thank you for your sensitivity and ongoing support and for ensuring the celebration of Charlies life ran smoothly and was well organised . Our feelings are that it was a really personal service applicable to Charlies life. . It was what we think Charlie would have wanted. Much appreciated by Mike, myself and all the family. thank you so much. Claire
