We received amazing service from Mark and Kelsey, from the initial phone call with Kelsey I knew we were in good hands. Mark is very compassionate and understanding, nothing was too much trouble. With this being the first funeral Iv had to organize he went through everything step by step and tailored a service which was exactly as my mam would of wanted. With this being obviously a difficult time for us Mark took all the stress away and was there throughout. I cannot thank him enough for everything that he has done for us. Want to say a huge thank you to Kate reed also who was wonderful and wrote a perfect eulogy for my mam.
