This is the 3rd funeral that Bensons have provided for our family. We cannot thank them enough for their caring manner towards us as a family and the care and dignity of our loved ones, nothing is too much trouble and we absolutely knew that all our wishes would be met. We will carry on using their services for many years to come knowing our loved ones are treated with the upmost respect.

I couldn’t have asked for a nicer send of for the gentleman I was supporting. From the start Paul was helpful, sensitive and very professional. He was on hand to provide expert knowledge when needed and took care of all the details, even liaising with the florists for us. It was excellent value for money and thoughtful touches were put in place too. It was a beautiful service, only enhanced by the careful planning from Carroll and Carroll. I would highly recommend, and thank you all.
