    I cannot recommend this Company enough. From start to finish everything was thought through and Sarah was so easy to talk to especially at such a difficult time. The Hurse was immaculate and my Mother's Coffin made of wicker looked so pretty, fit for a Princess. It was a beautiful occasion. The Rev Dakin was superb and everything went according to plan. The Order of Service booklets were beautiful. Many thanks for making what was a very sad day such a ray of sunshine for our family and friends.Cannot thank you enough.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for this kind review. We are pleased that Sarah helped you in personalising elements of the service and that you were very pleased with the vehicle and coffin selected. Sarah has also forwarded your kind words onto Rev Daykin so she can see what you have written. Thank you.

  • 4 Alan Barrowcliff 28th Aug 2018

    Generally the service was excellent and very efficient. The only slightly negative comment was the timing of the funeral procession. There was insufficient time made available, which in turn created a sense of rush and slight feeling of lack of respect.

    Matthew Lymn Rose replied
    Dear Mr. Barrowcliff. I am sorry that things felt rushed on the journey to the Crematorium. Brian your funeral director tells me he had already extended the timings by five minutes, and as the first funeral of the day we could have moved the pickup time to even earlier for you had we considered we still had not enough time. Thank you for your otherwise positive comments, and I hope that this did not affect your lasting impression of the funeral service.
  • 5 Richard Dickinson 29th Jul 2018

    Very efficient. We also appreciated the recommendation for Tim Hartell, the Celebrant, who was wonderful. Thank you.
