Mark and his family could not do enough for us, prior, on the day and after the passing of my wife. Their kindness and understanding was excellent and always made sure the process was as smooth as it could be. Mark organises everything for the funeral, giving great advice when and where needed. I have informed my family that they are to use his company when my time comes. I would not hesitate in using this funeral director for the loss of your loved ones. Thanks again Mark Charlie

At such a difficult time Mark stepped in and supported all of the family with his kindness, thoughtfulness, suggestions and above all his professionalism. Mark's attention to detail and gentle manner gave us comforting in knowing our Dad was being looked after. Thank you Mark, you did our Dad proud.

Mark Wait is a hidden jewel amongst the funeral services. Run strictly as a family business, you will not get better personalised treatment and value for money anywhere else. Mark and Kelsey made what was a daunting and onerous task look easy. In the middle of a difficult moment it was a real pleasure working with them designing my late wife’s funeral. They catered perfectly for all our needs and understood exactly the spirit we wanted for the event. Their suggestions were always spot on. Everything was delivered exactly as agreed. Thanks to them my family and our friends were able to participate in a very special farewell.
