Darren and his team were amazing, he handled what was a ‘sensitive’ family situation extremely well and with complete professionalism. 

Steve Patton 9th Jan 2018

Darren and his team listened carefully and gently guided us through planning my fathers funeral. I had never done anything like this before so at such a difficult time gentle advice is exactly what we needed. Darren kept in touch throughout, and called if there was any questions or uncertainty, to make sure the service went exactly as we wanted. We felt as though Darren and team were there only for us and had no other clients (I am sure that they did). I strongly recommend  Darren MacDonnald funeral directors and know that we will use them again.

I just wanted to thank you and Liz for arranging and delivering the funeral today. I think it is just what my Mother would have wanted and everyone who attended felt the same.   Please put me down as one of your five star reviews. I wanted someone who was empathetic and local and you were both.

    Darren Macdonald and his team are outstanding and in a class above the rest. The attention to detail....goes above and beyond... The compassion and empathy throughout the entire process is nothing short of brilliant . I personally woulld like to thank Darren so much for the service he gave my friend and myself during a terrible time in our lives. Thank you Darren very much.

  • 5 Louise Wakeham 12th Sep 2017

    Darren is a very compassionate man. Not at all false. Very open and very honest. Unlike some of the other funeral directors I met in Salisbury, Darren isn't out to make money. His costs are clear, his paperwork concise. He talks through every stage of the process, providing clarity and reassurance. There is no stupid question. I could't have managed my husband's funeral without Darren and his team. They made the process so much easier. I can't thank them enough.

    Kind, Compassionate, Caring and Patient. Eased the painful process of organising the ceremony in a very personal way.

  • 5 William Frances 31st Jul 2017

    Thank you so much for everything you have done for me and my family ones again.  You made the whole process of my mother funeral go so smoothly during a very difficult time, my mother was so pleased with your services with our father funeral, mum insisted you had to do her funeral when time came, because of your kind approach and professional way in which you cared for our father.  We knew mum was in good hands and knowing that everything was taken care as same before. The service was perfect - I could not have wished for more.  Accept my heartfelt grateful and thanks again to you and your team. I would thoroughly recommend Darren MacDonald Funeral Directors to everyone.  The service personal touch and courtesy you showed were second to none. Best wishes Will.

    Darren met all our needs, I would highly recommend his services at a difficult time.

  • 5 Christopher Ralph 13th Jul 2017

    Dealing with Darren at a poignant and emotional time was like discovering a new "old friend", who did everything possible to accommodate our needs and wishes. He was professional and efficient and yet at the same time sensitive and personal. We would without hesitation recommend his service to others. (Ralph Family, Kingston Deverill.)

  • 5 Daniel Sinclair 10th Jul 2017

    Very professional and empathetic. Would highly recommend.
