All staff from deighans especially ian was absolutely brilliant from day 1. Ian came to my mothers house where he explained the process on what goes on to look after my dad and they looked after him very well! Not pushy for payment. Many phone calls to see if everything’s ok and to reassure us on there side everything was in order. Funeral went without a hitch and if there was we didn’t see any! Many thanks lee.

At a time when you feel very sad, upset and don't know which way to turn,you meet these kind genuine people, and yes they provide a service but they go over and above what's expected, you feel their kindness and support outside of their normal duties you feel this as soon as you walk through the door.

Caring, compassionate and nothing was too much trouble. The kind of personal service you only get from a smaller, independent provider, where the owners are directly involved with the business and the staff are close to them.
