Fabulous service from start to finish. Sarah was great keeping me informed throughout the process. She treated me as an individual with empathy and compassion. Dave and his colleagues did us proud on the funeral day. I would recommend the company without hesitation.
We know how special each person is and aim to convey this in all aspects of our work from the arrangements to the day of the service. It means a great deal when people take the time to share their experience and to highlight individuals in the team who have made a difference. Thank you for this positive recommendation, it is greatly appreciated.

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.
I am glad that we were able to provide you with the care and support needed at this time. Our quality of care is something we are proud of and we know what a difference it makes to the families in their time of need.

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.
Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts with us and I am pleased to hear that our team were so kind and caring to your family. It has been a privilege to support your family and care for your Father.

Excellent, at a difficult time Sarah and her team made everything very easy, they all went above and beyond and gave my aunt a truly memorable send off, they made it more of a celebration of her life. Dave and his team even drove her past her beloved Local football teams ground(which we had no ideal was going to happen) they all wore red and white and the celebrant, Jane did an excellent service. Couldn’t of wished for more. At a difficult time they made it very easy. Many thanks to all.

We dealt mainly with Sarah who was amazing - from the first phone call she made us feel comfortable and assured and made the process extremely easy - communication was also very good. Everything we asked for was taken care of and Dave on the day, was very professional and put the family at ease. The celebrant, Alison, was excellent and we were confident that the day would go without a hitch and it did. What was a very emotional experience turned out to be the day of celebration that we wanted, largely due to the professionalism and empathy that we received from R Davies and Son.
Thank you for your thoughtful and detailed review. It is incredibly helpful to other families in the same circumstances as yourself. Your kind words mean a great deal to the team who always work very hard to deliver great care.

All staff that we dealt with before and on the day were exceptional. Nothing was too much trouble, in fact I would say Sarah especially went above and beyond what was expected. On the day David and Emily drove us to the Crem and acted with great dignity and were very helpful to my Mum. Everyone commented on the service that it was just as Dad would've liked. The Celebrant brought everything together well. Highly recommended and made easier as funeral plan in place.
Thank you for the kind comments posted on your online review. We are very proud of our team and the care they give and it means the world when we hear from the families that we have looked after. We are happy that the pre-paid funeral plan made it easier to arrange the service for your Father.
