Conducted with the upmost care and attention - C Welham

To all the Searson Family.
I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for making my husbands funeral a day me and our family will always remember. Although a very sad day it was conducted with the upmost care and attention. The care and attention we received from Debi and Andy was second to none.

Once again my family and i thank you, for making John’s final journey one to remember. The Searson family did John proud xxx

My Dad's funeral, Mick Gillen - Brian, Liam and Shirley

Hi Andy
We wanted to say a big thank you to you Andy and your family for all the help and support you gave us in organising my Dad's, Mick Gillen's, funeral. We have never had to organise a funeral before, and you were recommended to us as being a lovely family firm which was fitting for us as our Dad was a true family man.

From the moment we walked into you funeral service in Winter Road we were made to feel at ease with your son whilst we waited for you to return. When you returned you were kind, friendly and easy to talk to. We then hit you with the 'tall order' of trying to organise our Dad's funeral by the Friday of that week (we were in your office Monday morning), due to family commitments. You and your family pulled out everything for us and managed to make it happen, which we are really grateful.

On the day of the funeral you quickly sorted out the car arrangements for us when a couple of elderly relatives turned up unexpected at the house, thank you again. You also made it extra special for us for us (and my Mum) on the day when my Dad's grandchildren and close family were able to walk behind him down to St Mary's Church.

Thank you again for making such a hard time easier.

The service Andy gave was just lovely - Alex from Australia

I just wanted to send you an email before I go back to Australia today.
I wanted to say a big thank you to you, Debbie and Andy for all the hard work you did for mums funeral. I have never had to organise a funeral before and had no clue where to start. I have to say the best thing I ever did was deciding to call you guys. From the very first phone call where I spoke to you and told you we were financially not well off, you were so caring and understanding and you treated me with such respect and dignity and you helped me plan the best funeral we could afford for my mum.

I felt instantly relieved after speaking too you. I am so sure that all of your other clients must feel the same way as well. Debbie was so lovely and reassuring when I met her and she listened to me babble on as I was having a bad day and she showed me such respect and empathy. As for Andy... well can I just say there is absolutely no one else who we would have wanted to do my mums service.

We walked into meet him on Tuesday afternoon and he made us feel so comfortable and at ease. He really wanted to know as much as he could about mum and asked lots of questions about her and us and made us laugh a few times as well. He made my brother who was very close to my mum feel at ease and feel good about the meeting. When it came to us seeing mum I realise we were there for quite a while and poor Andy probably didn't get to leave the shop until nearly 7pm but not once did he disturb us he respected the moment and let us have it in peace and in our own time.

The service he gave was just lovely. I imagine my mum looking down on it and giggling along. We didn't want anything depressing but we did want it all to be about mum and how great she was and Andy did it perfectly!! It felt like it was a family member talking about her. Everyone said what a lovely service it was and they even said Andy was so good they thought he must have been a family member!

Lots of lovely memories with a few laughs thrown in... just perfect. Sorry for the rambling email I just wanted you all to know how much my brother, family and I appreciate the love and respect you have shown us and my mum over the last few weeks. We will certainly be recommending you guys!

Thank you again and have a great day! Alex xxx
