On behalf of myself and family I would like to thank J G Fielder and their staff especially Paul Clark and Julie for all they did as we mourned for the loss of my mum. You were there for us every step of the way and fullfilled our every need, showing comfort and support above and beyond. Geraldine Nichol

Hayley and her team were excellent. A homely feel greets you on your arrival, and Hayley's approach is relaxed but attentive and she is guided by you, not at all 'pushy'. Throughout the whole process, Hayley and her team were very accommodating of our needs, helpful and respectful. The day of the funeral went flawlessly, and all of our personal requests were catered for without question. It's difficult making so many decisions on behalf of a lost one, but I know my wife, Angela, would have approved of our decision to use Hayley, and there can be no better comfort than that. G and T
