I am so delighted that my parents made their funeral plans with Tim Matthews. He guided them every step of the way; was always there for support and advice; he took time with them and the rest of the family. When the time came to say goodbye to my dad, Tim was like another member of the family. His genuine caring was apparent throughout. Noting was too much trouble. Professional service with a personal touch. He took the time to ensure that the funeral he helped us plan was a fitting tribute to my dad.

    Tim Matthews was excellent. He made a really difficult time easier to bear and was extremely accommodating and helpful. Having absolutely no idea where to start he guided us smoothly through the entire process and we felt comfortable and at ease from the moment we stepped inside. Thankyou Tim x

    Tim was brilliant from start to finish, nothing was too much trouble, always contactable at any time, when you have a million things running through your head. His naturally quiet, calm and sympathetic nature shone through. I can't recommend him high enough.

  • 5 Scott Neale 21st Jan 2018

    I found Tim a real comfort and professional. He made what was an unexpected and tragic loss to a as nice a day as he he could. He was also praised by friends and family, some coming hundreds of miles for his thoughtfullnes and compassion on the day.

    So very personal, helpful, understanding and informative.  The whole of such a difficult time was made as easy as it could possibly have been made from start to finish.  Providing so much more than just a job in every way. An excellent service. Thank you.

  • 5 David Armstrong 23rd Oct 2017

    Tim provided a First Class service to our family recently, he was available to answer any questions we had and guided us through a sad time. Would highly recommend him...very many thanks.

  • 5 Phil Clark 6th Oct 2017

    Tim couldn't have been more accommodating. He listened brilliantly to what my Fathers wishes and preferences would've been, suggested some ways of making it better, organising a celebrant to ease the process of the service, and did it all with an appropriate sense of humour which we really valued throughout the process. Wholeheartedly recommended.

  • 5 Naomi Colburn 1st Oct 2017

    Tim was fantastic in every way from start to finish. He provided a personal &  extremely high level of service, nothing was too much trouble & it was clear that he takes a great deal of pride in his work & getting everything right was as important to him as it was to us. He also recommended the minister, Peter White, who conducted the service perfectly & again with attention to detail. Could not have asked for more, a potentially difficult day was made easy. Would absolutely recommend.

    Mr Matthews was helpful and sympathetic during the preliminary stages of arranging the Funeral. His advice was of considerable assistance. Thereafter he provided an extremely efficient service and delivered in full on all of his obligations thereby ensuring the Funeral Service was a fitting tribute to the deceased.

    Tim is the most caring and professional person that you are ever likely to meet! He dealt with everything and more taking the pressure off our family in this very emotional time.  I would recommend Tim to anyone without any hesitation.  Thank you Tim. 

  • 5 Anthony Alsford 15th Apr 2017

    Very caring and supportive at a sad time. Tim made time, at short notice, to meet our family to arrange our Father's funeral, especillay appreciated as our family are spread across the southern counties. No time was a problem for visiting Dad to say farewell at the funeral home and Tim made sure everyone's needs were met. The funeral itself was exactly as we wished it to be, and Tim and his team were very courteous and respectful throughout and this confirmed that we chose an excellent funeral director.

  • 5 Karen Blanchard 7th Apr 2017

    Highly recommended. Tim was amazing.  My father died suddenly.   The funeral was postponed due to a couple of important family remembers going on a holiday to Australia for three weeks. Tim I can't thank you enough.  You eliminated any pressure on the family.  You dealt in a professional and sensitive way, reassuring us that everything would be taken care of.  You were true to your word. Thank you Tim

  • 5 Shaun Manzi 21st Mar 2017

    Tim was so amazing when managing the funeral of my sister. He is very much, a caring person and nothing was to much trouble for him as he dealt with everything we we needed to make the day especially memorable.  Clearly someone with extensive experience in dealing with these situations; Tim always conducted himself with empathy and professionalism at all times. We thank him so much for helping us through this difficult time.

  • 5 Bill Donachy 17th Mar 2017

    Very professional, courteous and compassionate. Tim makes you feel at ease during difficult times. 

  • 5 Diana Pond 16th Mar 2017

    The whole family would like to thank Tim for his tremendous support, compassion and kindness shown to us during this terrible time. Tim took a lot of the organising off our hands and made the whole process as smooth and easy on the family as possible. We trusted that Tim had the family's best interests at heart and for him to care for our loved one. Tim put us in contact with some lovely people including A&T Cooper Florist who were very helpful and Peter White who conducted a beautiful ceremony exactly to the family's wishes. On the day Tim and his team were true professionals showing respect and courtesy, they even planned a lovely route for us to drive to the Crematorium in procession. We would definitely recommend Tim and his team. Thank you so much.
