Our appreciation and heartfelt thanks to Liam and Ian for their excellent support and professional services. Also for allowing us to use the chapel to carry out our Hindu religious rites. The whole service went smoothly from start to finish. The PATEL family

We sent Liam Roberts a very tight time-frame due to family circumstances and his advice was invaluable and compassion & understanding very much appreciated. A faultless service and highly recommended by our entire family.

This is our second funeral with them and we wouldn’t want to use anybody else. Liam’s approach is personal, supportive and friendly and you know you are in safe hands. Nothing is too much and at what is a very hard time, you are put at ease that they will do everything that they can to help and try and make things easier. I can’t recommend enough!

I can only agree with other reviews here. Everything was arranged professionally and with compassion. Liam went above and beyond what we expected. I can't praise him enough. I would definitely recommend them to everyone.
