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.

From the moment I was introduced to Liam Roberts until the final moments of my wife's woodland burial, my family, friends and I were treated with compassion, dignity and respect from all concerned with the arrangements.   Liam's eulogy at the graveside encapsulated the highlights of my wife's life and was spoken with such sincerity, it was hard to think that he had never met her. I have had several phone calls from those who attended expressing their views that they could not believe that a funeral could be so uplifting and that they, together with myself and my family have been left with a memory that will last a lifetime. Heartfelt thanks to Liam and his team for making this very sad day into something I will take great comfort from for the rest of my life.
