Chris Meynell and his staff were amazing; they provided a totally professional service with a high degree of care, compassion and understanding. Our beloved 84 year old mother Audrey Pollard was treated with total respect. Chris’s advice was invaluable and we sincerely thank him for that.  I would highly recommend Chris Meynell who in addition to the above offers excellent value for money.  Jez Pollard on behalf of the Pollard family.
