    Liam and his team were excellent service providers. They were very empathetic and caring at all times. We were able to speak to them about anything regarding my mum, her care and her beautiful funeral.  Thank you for trying to make this awful day as special as possible for my lovely mum.  Thank you again to all of your team  Zoe Potter

    Superb bunch of people, warm & friendly yet respectful. From the time I called them late on a Friday night right through to collecting my wife's ashes they couldn't have been more helpful. Though everything had been sorted out via a Funeral Plan (well worth doing as it saves a lot of decision making at the worst time in one's life) The S&R team arranged times for picking up the Death Certificate and for registering it at The Registry Office, I didn't have to do a thing, they did it for me. THEY WERE SUPERB. While I'm her let me do a plug for Funeral Plans: My first worry was that the Funeral Directors cease trading. NO worry, you don't pay them, you pay into a trust , so if your nominated funeral director goes bust it is automatically picked up by another Funeral Director that is a member of the trust. If funeral prices go up? No worries again, you have paid for the service, if costs go up it is borne by the trust fund. If you want extras not covered by the initial plan such as an extra car then, of course, you will have to pay the going rate.

    From the start to finish the service provided was first class. The care and attention shown throughout made the process trouble free and eased the burden on the family.

    Liam was amazing! He managed to arrange and conduct a funeral for my mother in only four days as I had already booked to go away on holiday for the following two weeks. I would have either had to cancel my holiday or delay the funeral until I returned from my holiday. Nothing was too much trouble and he went out of his way to provide everything I wanted for my mother's funeral. He took away all the stress and I was able to go away on holiday and relax.

    The service we received from Liam was second to none. He made the whole process simple and straightforward at a time when focusing on such things was very difficult.

  • 5 Nigel May 16th Apr 2017

    They where excellent all the way from the very first meeting. They help make what is a difficult thing to do arranging a funeral very easy. They also help in recommending David the minister who did the service, the catering company that did my mum proud and Lisa who is helping with the probate process, and I would recommend them all. All throughout the process they where always on the end of the phone to help with any questions we had. I would not hesitate to use them again should I have to again in the future

    It was very good all the guests commented how much they liked it, I would think you will get a few enquiries from some of our friends and family.

  • 5 Steve Scurrell 17th Mar 2017

    From the outset they were sensitive to the situation but proactive in moving things along to accomplish all of the necessary arrangements. The family appreciated the support and advice they gave at every stage and the kindly way in which it was given.
