The gratitude and respect that I have for Liam the Funeral Director and his wonderful Colleagues at the Ipswich Funeral home Southgate & Roberts is almost beyond my capability to express in the written word. My dear Mother passed away in March 2019, she had several health issues but her death was unexpected. My Mothers passing hit my family, family friends and I like an express train. As the eldest son, I took responsibility for organizing what needs to be done after a family loses such a special person. I was numb with grief and shock but thankfully I made a call to Southgate & Roberts. Liam introduced himself then he talked my family and me through every step we needed to take to lay my Mother to rest. This review could become a book of gratitude with ease but I will mention that at one point my Mother thought she had secured a plot that would allow her to be laid to rest with her own Mother and Husband. However this was not the case and it was only because of Liam's professionalism, knowledge and dedication that my Mother had her wish forefilled

For family reasons, we needed to organise a cremation and ceremony at very short notice. Liam, Andrew and Corinne couldn't have been more helpful. The result was a beautiful ceremony that reflected the life and personality of my mother in a way that her family and friends will look back on with a smile, with great love and of course sadness. Thank you so much.

I found Southgate & Roberts Funeral Directors to be very professional and offered a great service at a very reasonable cost. Everything went very smoothly on the day which was excellent as one doesn't want to be worrying about the tiny details. They were exceptional and I would not hesitate to recommend them and indeed Very caring use them again should I have the need. Very caring and compassionate. MR.MG Forsdike.
