    I had no previous experience or knowledge of what I had to do in my situation. I am so pleased that I chose Pinders Funeral Directors as they took all the problems that arose,  worked through the options I had, and sat down with me to help me feel comfortable with my decision.  Within a day I felt as though they were part of my family and this made me feel very assured that my wishes would be upheld. My husband was given the highest respect and was lovingly cared for.  Jaquie was our dedicated member of the team and I felt very comfortable with her dealings with us. John Pinder was always on site, and made himself visible, even coming to my assistance when my vehicle broke down,  this made me feel confident in the fact that they really are a family run business. If you are looking for a caring, professional funeral director who will give your loved one the dignity and respect they deserve, yet never forgetting the loved ones left behind then I can highly recommend W.E. Pinder & Son

  • 5 Christopher Tuffrey 8th Apr 2017

    John and his staff are the most caring, considerate people you could care to meet. The service they provide is personal and your needs are the most important factor to them at a very distressing time. I have no hesitation in recommending W E Pinder, a five star service.

    John Pinder has provided me and my family with excellent service. He pre-empts your needs, takes care of everything and inspires confidence in the whole process. The funeral had the perfect balance of solemnity, gravitas and good humour. John and his company is simply a class act. Thank you for everything. Neil McCallion

  • 5 Cath Basilio 16th Jan 2017

    John was able to set the right tone for the whole process, was thoughtful in his communication, helpful and caring to both my Dad who'd died and to those of us left behind. The dignity he afforded Dad when he walked the hearse from the house a significant distance to the main road was not something that was discussed but was a real comfort. The normal world should slow down or stop and be respectful of this significant moment and the dignified procession was beautifully carried out. The flag for the coffin was a lovely touch. Thank you

    The family found Mr John Pinder to be a caring and compassionate man who acted with professionalism at all times.  He took care of all our needs and looked out for me at my most vulnerable.  I will never forget his kindness and thank him for all his help and support during this difficult time. 

  • 5 Charlene Jackson 25th Dec 2016

    There are no words to describe how beautiful mums funeral was, we are so happy with the service we were given. John went above and beyond to accommodate everything for us and took alot of stress and pressure from myself and my father. Nothing was too much trouble. John is a lovely, warm hearted man too. Very kind, caring and genuine.

  • 5 Zoe Owen 18th Dec 2016

    Would definitely recommend W E Pinder, faultless. Helped make a difficult time a little bit easier by ensuring we had all the information needed to make the right decisions.  I especially liked the family feel the business had to it, made you feel that they had a bit more care and compassion for your loved one in the most difficult time.

  • 5 Mark Parkin 17th Dec 2016

    As soon as we contacted John about. Mum's passing we felt as ease. He took control whilst following our requests. All of the staff were there if we needed help or advice. The day went as we hoped it would and more. Thank you.

    The service was excellent from first contact to interment   The support from John Pinder to my mother was impeccable ; professional  but yet personal. I would highly recommend their services. I would also like to say Thank you to all Johns staff who again were so professional in their duties.

  • 5 Lucy Cruddas 28th Nov 2016

    Outstanding, personable, compassionate, thoughtful, respectful, efficient are all words which describe the service myself and my family received from Pinders. At a time of grief everything was explained clearly, taken at my pace and absolutely nothing was too much trouble. From the moment she was taken from hospital until she was laid to rest I could not have wished for better service or care of my precious Mummy. The funeral was perfect, if that's possible, this was largely due to Pinders. I could not recommend this company more highly.

  • 5 David Hall 22nd Nov 2016

  • 5 Julie Honcharenko 18th Nov 2016

    I cannot recommend John Pinder enough. he recognises that he is dealing with next of kin & family at a most emotional and stressful time. He helped me to arrange my Mums funeral going above and beyond when some of the arrangements were complicated by timescales at the coroners court. Thank you so much for helping us through this awful time.

  • 5 Michelle Peake 15th Nov 2016

    Thank you to W E Pinder for a caring and professional service at our difficult time. John Pinder has a very compassionate calm approach which totally put us at our ease - he gave us confidence that everything would be sorted as we wished and it most certainly was. Every detail and eventually was given consideration andattention to in a caring and compassionate way. I would not hesitate to recommend their services.

    W.E Pinder & Son Ltd have yet again been superb with the arrangements of my late Mother, Lilian Grimwood's Funeral on October 20th 2016. Having also arranged my Late Father's Funeral ten years previously, John Pinder helps to take the pressure off you, guiding you through the sadness, with a professional, yet sympathetic and compassionate handling of everything that needs to be done legally, and personally. Nothing is ever too much trouble for him,or his staff, who are always available to help with any last minute queries you may need answering at any given time. I have no hesitation in recommending W.E. Pinder and Son Ltd to anyone in need of making funeral arrangements, they will be handled with kindness, and compassion, and you will be in safe hands at a very vulnerable time. Thank You John Pinder, and all your staff. Yours Sincerely Jackie Dudley (Mrs)
