From the beginning to the end of the difficult process of arranging and carrying out the funeral of my step mum, Frances Barker, Chris Fielder, of J.G. Fielder and son, was always helpful, considerate and showed great compassion. He made sure that everything and all our needs were catered for, and went out of his way to make sure everything went smoothly. He and the office staff were always sympathetic and understanding when I contacted them. I would not hesitate to recommend their services. Sylvia Whalley

I will be forever grateful to Martin, Elizabeth and the team for their support and services in recent weeks. They ensured that at every step if the process my Mum and I were treated with care, compassion and respect. The funeral was so respectful. The most precious thing to us was the high level of communication in the period before the funeral. The team made everything so easy and worked with us to give my mum the perfect day.
