I have no complaints, only as I said to Haley that I feel the coffinshould not go as far back on the floor in the crematorium, as sitting on the left hand side end seats, one cannot see the full coffin.  As for Haley and her company I thought them excellent, she was recommended to us by friends, I would recommend her company to anyone, she has empathy and is caring.  Her chapel of rest is so endearing to be able to be in to say ones last goodbyes to your loved one Phyllis Sharp and Family

We have used their services twice in a short space of time. You could not get a more caring efficient funeral director.

Our funeral was actually carried out by Fielders and from start to finish they were easy to deal with and helped to give my Mother a good ‘send off’. All very professional and went to plan - thank you.

Haley was a great support throughout this very sad time. Everything was organised from day one and she helped and advised us very kindly and sympathetically. Her lovely sense of humour and dry wit was a bonus too. Thank You Haley and your Team. X
