What Families Say

The many kind words shared are so much appreciated and an inspiration to me as I  forge on. This is a selection of the lovely things that people have written


“…to thank you for your professional and sensitive handling of my Mothers recent funeral, I have been constantly mindful that I wished to thank you for your services, both “on the day” as well as beforehand, in assisting me in the difficult task of preparing a eulogy for the occasion. I know, without doubt, that Mum would have been totally delighted and content with the service and indeed the whole occasion, service type and style, music, words and mourners, because of this intimate knowledge of her express wishes, combined with the fact that they were met and adhered to throughout, has resulted in an occasion for me which was so comforting and will “live” with me until my time comes, I thank you profusely and sincerely for the vital part you played in the affair. ”

“ As a family we would like to say a big thank you for the lovely way you delivered our goodbye to John. He was a very special man to a lot of people and will be missed.  Hailey has also asked me to thank you for the support during her reading. ”

The service u gave was beautiful, we really do thank u it  was a celebration of Rays life even though we were upset. Once again thank you xx ”

“ Just wanted to say…. You were outstanding today. The eulogy you delivered was brilliant. It was delivered with reverence, respect, love, accuracy…. The way you engaged the congregation was totally unique. Your tone of voice, eye contact, body language and intonation.


You have taken the departure of loved ones to another level. What is traditionally a sombre time you made a true celebration of life. Really impressed with your format… You made a emotionally ‘challenging’ day a day of remembrance & love. ”


“ On behalf of Vera’s family, and especially Phyllis, I would like to thank you for the service you led this morning.  Without exception, we all thought that it was what Vera would have wanted, and summed up her life and her achievements in a clear and loving way.


We are all content that Phyllis, Vera’s closest friend for nearly 75 years, was able to wish Vera goodbye in a loving, caring environment. ”


“ … Would like to thank you on behalf of myself and my family so much, for the wonderful ceremony you prepared and carried out to celebrate my mum’s life . It was perfect and  I cannot suggest anything that could or should have been done any differently to make the day any better for myself and family. Every detail from your tone and expression and your comforting smile…. It was truly amazing .
Family who had not met you before the day could not believe you did not actually know mum personally, as you captured her personality and sometimes quirky ways perfectly .
Thank you also for copies of the ceremony which we will treasure  and have to comfort us in the future, as we remember mum’s life…for making what was such a  dreaded and heartbreaking day the absolute best it could be. ”

“ Thank you for the lovely service you gave for Roger on Friday, you captured the essence of Roger brilliantly. “

“ … It was a lovely celebration of his life with warmth and respect which we will always remember. “


“  Just wanted to say a big thank you for the service provided on Thursday. I felt your words were extremely kind and thoughtful, as well as precise and accurate. There was clearly a lot of time, thought and effort taken in order to describe my grandmother and explain her life.


Unfortunately I have been to many funerals in the past and listened to many different tributes to people’s lives, I personally feel that the ceremony provided to my grandmother was a most accurate account of her life and felt it was much more personal and loving than other services. ”


Thank you from bottom of my heart for making yesterday very very special for us. The service was perfect we could not have asked for anything more. ”


”  Thank you so so much for your presentation of  my Tony’s life. You were fab. So many people commented how it was the best funeral service they had been to. You are a very special lady. Best Wishes **** ********* xxxxxxxxxx ”


“‘  We would like to thank you for the kind and warm hearted way in which you helped us to wish our final goodbyes to Martin. Your support was invaluable in helping us to make our choices. You delivered ******’s words beautifully and gave myself and ***** the confidence to get through our contributions. Many thanks. ”


” We would like to express our gratitude for the care and consideration you put into the creation of Roy’s funeral. Everyone who attended was so impressed with the way you conveyed Roy’s story, especially mum, who was absolutely dreading the day. Your words gave her comfort and the strength to see the day through.”


” Just wanted to say thank you for the lovely service given today for Eva, it was truly beautiful and fitting for a lovely lady. Thank you for all your guidance and help given through a difficult time. Lovely to meet you and it’s fab the work you do.”


” Just a note to say thank you for conducting the service. You had a lot of compliments afterwards. Thanks for keeping everything together.”



” I just wanted to drop you a note to say thank you on behalf of my husband *** and myself for the service you carried out for my brother in law David last week. We thought the service was beautiful and thought you conducted the service with grace, humour and sensitivity for what was quite a difficult life and death.  *** was extremely touched by the way you were able to almost include David in the service and felt like you managed to speak to him and not just about him which is so often the case. I know we were both quite apprehensive beforehand about the service as we were both aware that David’s life recently had, very sadly, not been one that could be celebrated in the traditional sense. The service was such that *** and I came away feeling that all the positives throughout his life had been remembered in a special way and we both felt that you touched upon the more difficult elements of his life with sensitivity.”



” I would like to thank you for making Alison’s funeral perfect. It was all that she would have wanted.”


” I have had a couple in to give a donation for the late **** *********. They attended his funeral and said how wonderful the service was. They said you read the eulogy and were brilliant. You have a lovely speaking voice and gave a magnificent service.” ( From a Sheppey based Funeral Director )


“  Thank you very much from myself and my family for all the hard work and time you have put in to help us at this time. Your work creating and the presentation of the eulogy was very well received by everyone that I have spoken to. I appreciated that organising things “through committee” always makes life more challenging, and in already challenging situations, I really appreciate your patience and continued professional attitude throughout; even with our requests to you seeming to change at each turn.  If you ever have a need for a reference statement to the quality of your services, then I am more than happy to provide one for you.”


“ I would just like to thank you for the wonderful service that you took for my Uncle Roy. It was perfect in everyway, everybody was commenting on it after. So once again thank you. And if you ever move to Essex please let me know!”  ( From an Essex based funeral arranger )


“ Can I just thank you once again for the wonderful job you did yesterday at my Dad’s cremation. So many people afterwards said what a lovely and moving service it was, and how well you portrayed him. You really made a difficult time a celebration of his life and a fitting tribute to a much loved man.”


“ Thank you so much for the fitting tribute you gave my mother on Friday. I was so happy with everything.  It couldn’t have gone any better, you definitely understood how we wanted the atmosphere to be, relaxed and happy. My children, who were very close to their grandmother, said how they felt it had been a very happy occasion.  ****** had been struggling since her Nan’s death, but since the funeral she has been less tearful.”


“ Thank you so much for making Kevin’s burial and celebration of his life so special.  When you visited you took your time in ensuring that we got what we wanted for Kevin although we had no clear idea beforehand exactly what we did want.  We very much appreciated all your efforts carried out in a professional but approachable manner.  Many who attended the burial and celebration commented on how well it had been carried out by you.”


“ Just a big thank you from all of us, family, friends and relatives, to you, for the way you presented the service and the warmth you gave out to all of those gathered, everyone was truly moved and Mum would have loved it !”


“ I just wanted to drop you a quick email to say thank you for your eulogy  yesterday morning.  We have had an awful lot of feedback from those present – everyone enjoyed the service and found it a refreshing change from the usual funeral service they were expecting. ***** said how enjoyable it was, that not only were we all bawling our eyes out, we also had a little laugh.  Dad would certainly have appreciated your participation and I just wanted to say, on behalf of all of us, thank you.”


“ I just want to thank you once again for such a lovely service for Mum today.  I know she would have been very pleased.  The other mourners also thought you delivered such a beautiful, natural tribute to her and  it helped bring her back closer to us. I would also like to thank you very much for the pack of the service, what a kind and thoughtful thing to do. It will mean so much to me to be able to read through it all again, which I know I will do many times in the future.”
