From the very first contact we made with Mark we were instantly reassured that he was going to take a heavy burden off our shoulders. Dignified and professional he ensured that our beloved Dad received a send off we were immensely proud of. Taking Dad on a trip around his second home the Stadium of Light had us all in tears. A lovely touch. The service pamphlets as well were very thoughtful and touching. We were so appreciative of all the staff at Manor House,the receptionist, the chapel of rest and the cortège gentlemen very very professional  Thank You
