Our Funeral Director, Simon, and all of the staff at Fielder's York provided a professional, comprehensive service that adapted to our needs. My wife died suddenly at a young age, 240 miles from our home city. Fielder's made all the requested arrangements, taking any complicated tasks off our hands to ensure that the day ran as smoothly as possible. I would highly recommend their service.

We couldn't have asked for better service from Jon. even on the e-mails we were receiving in Australia, we could tell by the way he wrote the email we had a good team. it was nice to put a face to the email a few days before the service, also with Rev. John. Everyone said on the day how nice the service was & how sincere everyone was, proving they love what they are doing & it's not just a job. Thank you all. Regards Terry & Barbs Uren
