Everything went well, and nothing was too much trouble for them. Very professional on the day, the driver kept conversation going when needed. The cars were spotless and the timing of everything was impeccable. I would definatley recommend them to anybody wanting a proper company to look after them.

J W BINKS'S professional service attended to everything for my mum's funeral do not hesitate to use their services you will be cared for with compassion and professionalism. From first contact to the final moment you are treated with respect and dignity. The service we received took all the pressure of us and gave us reassurance that all was being taken care of. Thank you J W BINKS.

From the moment we walked through the door and met Thea the funeral director ,we all felt very at ease and comfortable. Thea is probably one of the nicest people you could wish to meet and very helpful and considerate . We had previously that day visited another funeral director in Leeds but we just didn't get that feeling of warmth and didn't seem to want to give us what we wanted. We got totally the opposite at Thomosons they couldn't do enough to help us ,they kept in contact , helped us with problems we had with the church and made a sad day go very smoothly . What also impressed me was when I called in to see the funeral directors ,2 weeks after the funeral just to say thank you , Alex who works there remembered my name as I walked in. Just little things that make a big difference I would highly recommend Thomosons to anyone. Thank you Thea and Alex and all the staff at Thomosons  Shaun Dolan
