Scott was very considerate and kind when organising my late husband John's funeral. He made the process simple and straightforward and we were very pleased with the service at Basingstoke Crematorium and Nikki, the celebrant, was very caring and the service was so lovely and emotional. This helped a lot during a very sad and emotional time for my children and I.

The whole experience although extremely difficult, John, Scott and the team were considerate and helpful, they looked after the family as if they had known us for years.  The way the fixed cost of the funeral was simple and meant we didn’t have to focus on irrelevant matters, they made the situation so easy, fitting and cost effective.  They helped choose a vicar who fitted the needs of the family. As a family, we are not regular Church people, however, the Vicar Michael Banfield, was an excellent choice. He is kind, gentle and very easy to talk to and  he calmed us down and provided the family with unspoken comfort at a time of deep shock and grief. He conducted a very moving and fitting service, having guided us the whole way through.  Thank you all on behalf of Veronica Kathleen Ford ( Bonnie Ford ) family.   Marilyn,  Glenn, Laurie, Peter, John, Maureen, Robert John, Rosie and Judith
