Reviews of our services

  • From the beginning to the end of Mum's funeral it was dealt with compassion, professionally and sympathetically. You could ring at any time and they were always there. Even when staff at Whitchurch had covid the team from another office showed the same kind of commitment. I would recommend them to help you through this sad time.

  • From start to finish we received a genuinely caring, yet professional service - first from Dignity, and then from all the staff at R Davies & Son. We were never in doubt that everything was completely under control, and at the most difficult of times, when we felt at our least capable, this was incredibly important. Heartfelt thanks to Sarah, Dave, and celebrant Steve - you did our lovely Dad proud.
