    We can’t fault anything at all. Murrays were recommended to us and we will pass on the recommendation too Service was very caring and professional  Their reaction to any changes in our wishes was extremely accommodating  The staff were all patient, extremely helpful in guiding us through the funeral process We must highlight Angie who was amazingly patient and caring - nothing was too much trouble - even with the many changes Megan was great with the production of the Order of Service sheets, especially the inclusion of a Women’s Land Army badge Our funeral director on the day was Barry, and he was great - and made it clear he would do everything possible to ensure the service went to our satisfaction,  In closing, a very friendly and professional service . Thank you to all

  • 5 Alan Prescott 15th Apr 2019

    A very sad time for my family as we lost Nicky and my dad within a few days of each other . Murrays have helped me and my two other daughters sort out the funeral for both Nicky and dad. Nicky had a horse drawn carriage and it looked beautiful [ not sure if to use the word beautiful about a funeral is correct but it was ] I must admit I was very nervous about the occasion but everyone at Murrays made me feel at ease about it all. They truly are an excellent company. Alan Prescott

  • 5 Lesley Langslow 24th Mar 2019

    I can not praise these beautiful people enough,we lost my husband very unexpectedly, 68 years old! I kissed him goodbye in the morning and he never came home agaiin,so in shock and disbelief we had to make choices we never had any idea of how to make .They have guided myself and my two children effortlessly with the greatest dignity through the most traumatic,exhausting experience that I feel we can ever go through as a family. Danny and staff have been so very kind, courteous , never rushing us ,giving us all the help and guidance to enable us to what I can only describe as the most perfect goodbye service,that Syd would have loved, Thankyou from the bottom of our hearts, we are eternally grateful

  • 5 Martin Styne 19th Mar 2019

  • 5 Helen Clarke 19th Mar 2019

    Danny was excellent. Helped with a very difficult day.

  • 5 Muriel Harlow 15th Mar 2019

    Murray's have been excellent from the time Philip died - collecting his body right through to the funeral. The were compassionate and caring guiding the family through this difficult time from actually making the arrangements right through to the funeral. There was never any rush to get things sorted or time limit when we came to the Chapel of rest to see Philip. We have received many comments from people attending the funeral that we had given Philip a good send off and proud that we got to grant him something he always wanted to do - ride a Harley Davidson. Special thanks to Angie and Danny for their support through arrangements and the funeral.

  • 5 Emily Jordan 7th Mar 2019

    Sue and her team were exemplary in the handling of Barbara's funeral. Everything was done very tastefully and to the highest of professional standards. The tone was a finely judged balance of compassion, and when needed, a few moments of light relief. Danny was the funeral director on the day, and he did a superb job of putting us at our ease and organising it all seamlessly. Would absolutely recommend Murrays
