Nothing was too much trouble. Took time out to visit me at my home as I could not drive. Very thorough, and reasonable rates. Service was excellent, everything went to plan and have been very supportive before and afterwards. Fabulous team, especially John Pearce. Considerate and kind, would recommend. Thanks

This was the sixth funeral that Hillier had arranged for our family since 1989. Previous experience has meant that the family was entirely satisfied with the sympathetic care and willingness to go beyond the basics. In the most recent funeral my aunt had set up a funeral plan with Hillier which was a new experience and proved to be very helpful. A detailed meeting with Tamara was hugely re-assuring as she navigated me through all aspects. This was the only face to face meeting with everything else being done by email. All our queries were dealt with promptly and professionally by Tamara and her colleagues. On the day Kai was the link between the family and Hillier. He was brilliant from the time the hearse arrived at the start location to when we were returned to the church for the wake. The conditions were awful with torrential rain - Kai retained good humour in spite of being wet! Nothing but positives from other members of the family and friends.

Given the circumstances, I couldn’t of  picked a better company. Pearce Funeral Services felt more of a personal company rather than commercial and they went above and beyond for me and my family with courtesy calls and emotional support right up until the end of the service. I personally felt like I had known Dave for a very long time and the support he gave me was incredible and all the little details never went unnoticed. Thank you for giving my dad the best possible send off he could have.
