Testimonials



"Dear Sean,

Thank you on behalf of our family, for the efficiency demonstrated by your company and of course the friendliness that you showed us.

It all contributed to an excellent day. Everything was quietly and efficiently carried out, you guided us without being bossy!"

 Pamela Pegram- May 2018




"Thank you all so much for taking care of all the details following my husband's passing.

Your kindness, compassion and support have been so comforting through this most difficult of times.

Thanks to all of you for the caring you showed each time any of us came to visit him and for treating him with respect and dignity.

The day of the service went so smoothly and your quiet support made the day a little more bearable.

Thank you also for showing his brothers and nephews how to carry his coffin and for allowing them to do it, I know it meant so much to them to be able to do one last thing for him."

"Hi Peter,

We just wanted to say a big thank you for all you did helping us before and especially on the day of the funeral with such extreme weather conditions.

I think Mum was probably looking down on us having a giggle at us wondering up to the graveyard with the snow pouring down.

As always the service we received from you was so professional and made arrangements at this difficult time run smoothly.

Bless you all!"

Anne-Marrie Shepperd - March 2018

To know she was in your safe hands made all the difference at such a difficult time."

Georgina Elliot - February 2018



"Thank you so much for the beautiful service yesterday - and for all your help over the past couple of weeks.

That Dad and I were able to give Mum such a wonderful and worthy farewell was in very large measure down to you and your family. You were there for us when we needed you most in our own personal ‘Darkest Hour’."

Frank Churchill - February 2018



"Very many thanks for your able and kind arrangement of the funeral. We could not have wished for a more understanding person."

Peter Gaskin - February 2018



"Dad and I wanted to thank you for the way you handled my mother’s funeral recently.

Sean was warm,  kind and very respectful and having him as a consistent contact throughout meant we didn’t have to keep explaining ourselves. 

He was completely reliable, took care of everything and was a step ahead of us all the way.  Wherever we looked he was already there and the quality of communication and attention to detail from everybody was impressive.

Your team made light work of something that needed to be spot on at a difficult time, we cannot recommend them highly enough."

Liz Fairfield - January 2018 




"Many thanks for the way you all managed Mum's funeral.

" Heartfelt gratitude to Peter Smith, Sean Smith and Ian Fifield who treated my mother's body with respect and dignity.

Her body is buried in "Applecross" Wester Ross.

Thanks for the care and compassion towards myself before and after her funeral a few months ago.

God Bless you for being there and going the extra mile in every way.

Can't thank you and your firm enough."

Wendy Fleet - October 2016




"From the very first meeting your personal words and attention have meant so much to us and has been a great comfort through these difficult times.

We entrusted Dad to you and we couldn't have asked for a better way for him to have been cared for.

I personally will never forget the way you honoured Dad by walking in front of the hearse; whilst I know this is something you said you always do, for us as a family it was the highest personal respect we could have asked for - thank you Sean.

I know the business is in it's early days but you absolutely have mastered customer service to the extreme. You and your team are a credit to the business."

Steve Dolton - July 2016




"We just wanted to thank you all for the wonderful job you did for Mum’s funeral.

At such a difficult and emotional time it is so important to have people who can be caring and compassionate as well as completely professional.

Peter, Sean and the team were all fantastic, and perfectly managed to combine tradition, respect and very genuine warmth.

The cars and all staff looked pristine and everyone involved helped make Mum’s final journey a very special and moving experience.

We cannot recommend them highly enough."


Kay Barker & Julie Fleetwood - June 2016




"Thank you so much for all your help and professionalism at a very difficult time.

Everything was just perfect, Mum would have loved it!

We really couldn't have done it without you.

Sean was brilliant, always there when he said he would be and always returned my calls, and there were many!"
