Nigel and Corrinne were fantastic to deal with after my fathers passing last year. Nigel was prompt, professional, put my mother at ease and helped us all along the way. His daughter Corrinne was great helping us with the order of service and dealing with the general issues. Nigel kept us informed all along the way and was so very warm and friendly. He treated my father like he had known him in life, treating him with the utmost dignity and respect. Thank you - Patrick Robinson
When my husband died both Nigel and Corinne were endlessly helpful. It was my first experience of death and they did everything beautifully and with the greatest dignity, which really is all one can ask. Also a friend had recently been “ripped off” so I was very wary, but felt I was treated very fairly. - Louise Skirton
I thought you guys were amazing. All the little personal touches and friendliness make you stand out from the rest xx - Jo Young
