While calling funeral directors to arrange my brother’s funeral Mark Wait seemed the most sympathetic and genuine over the phone. They were very understanding over the high costs of funerals and helped me get a quote that was low but assured me a wuality service. They also advised me on what paperwork I would need to arrange it, as this was the first time I’d really dealt with someone dying and I didn’t quite know what i was doing.  During the arrangements they were understanding, as my mother was ill during the planning stages. They went above and beyond to accommodate this.  They created a beautiful service for my brother and were professional throughout and have kept contact since the funeral, always making sure that my family and I are well during this distressing time.  It’s an odd thing to recommend but Mark Wait Funeral Sevice made this sad time, less stressful and were a huge help.  Thank you to Kelsey and Mark. You’ve been absolutely lovely.

  • 5 Gary Temple 26th Feb 2019

    Mark provided everything the family needed with a extremely sympathetic and friendly nature. He made the whole process effortless and without him it would have been a much harder time for the family. Would recommend whole heartedly.

  • 5 Charles White McCormack 2nd Feb 2019

    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

  • 5 Edith Connell 5th Jan 2019

    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.

    When it came to planning a funeral for my late father, my brother and I contacted Mark Wait. I had never had to organise a funeral before, so I didn't know where to start. Mark visited us at my home and talked us through, step by step what would happen and what we needed to do. There wasn't a question or query that Mark couldn't answer or help with. Mark was very professional, knowledgeable and friendly. He regularly contacted us with updates or to check in, to see if we needed help with anything. It was so comforting to know we had a funeral director that we could rely on and I can't thank him enough. I would highly recommend Mark Wait funeral service.

  • 5 Sally Bird 15th Nov 2018

    Mark's service was excellent. He was discreet and thoughtful when taking my husband's body at a time when I felt very vulnerabl;e. All his discussions with me were conducted with great tact and kindness. When my daughter visited his chapel of rest she commented on the peaceful atmosphere and the helpful staff. His arrangements on the day of the funeral were immaculate and helped at a difficult. time. His planning was meticulous and every step was clearly explained.

    Right from the initial meeting with Mark Waite through to the completion of the funeral service itself I can only speak in the highest terms of his professional and caring way in which he dealt with my mothers funeral. I was kept informed at each and every stage of what was happening and when happening. I would not hesitate to recommend his services.

  • 5 Susan Mary Rawlinson 26th Oct 2018

    Everything went smoothly and was well organised. The dignity and empathy from Mark and his staff were second to none. Nothing was too much trouble and all went smoothly. Definitely recommend Mark's professional services to anyone looking for stress free planning and delivering at a reasonable price. We were in safe and professional hands.
