Excellent standard of care and compassion for the deceased and family members, they go above and beyond to help in any way they can. Nothing is too much trouble and they make the whole process as easy as it can be, some of the kindest people I have had the pleasure to meet in difficult circumstances, I would recommend them wholeheartedly.

Anna Johnston 12th Jun 2019

We would absolutely recommend using Crescent Funeral Services. They were excellent at guiding us through the process and provided a personalised service. They took our thoughts and wishes into consideration and made helpful suggestions. Robert was professional, patient and compassionate, answering all our questions sensitively and clearly.

Care, respect and compassion - the crescent way is a really good description of the excellent experience I had with Crescent Funeral Services. They were friendly, helpful and efficient and made dealing with the practical arrangements of my Mums death so much easier than it might have been. I highly recommend them. Thank you to Robert, Simon and James

Robert was our FD and was very patient with us and was happy to explain steps for planning a funeral as this was our first time in doing this sort of thing. He was also very helpful in providing suggestions and recommendations that complemented traditions from different culture. Thank you CFS and Robert for your help and providing a lovely service for my Dad.

    Simon, whom I have known for many years, dealt with Jeff's funeral with great sensitivity in a difficult situation.  He was incredibly helpful and the service provided by him and all his team was superb - respectful and dignified.  The Jaguar hearse was a crowning glory to their service - something which Jeff would have greatly appreciated. I can wholeheartedly recommend Simon and Crescent Funeral Services to anyone suffering a bereavement, and am confident that their high standards of service will be reassuring and comforting.
