Teresa - January 2021

My mother died on Oct 24th 2020 after two very traumatic weeks in Hospital, so when choosing a Funeral Director, I was looking for someone who could guide me and my family through the whole procedure with as little stress as possible. From the very first telephone call with Sean Smith, I felt confident and comfortable as through his efficiency, patience, and kindness he showed me that he had everything under control at all times.

The funeral was arranged locally and in these 'Covid' times (only a small amount of family were able to attend the funeral), Sean was able to source all my mum's favourite hymns, sung by various choirs and these were played at the funeral, filling the church with music (my mum would have loved it)! Sean spent hours on this task as he had to match all the music with the words in the 'Order of Service' (who knew that the same hymn could have so many versions)! We used a local Catholic Church but my mum wanted to be buried with my late father in Pickering, North Yorkshire and I thought that this would be a logistical nightmare! Once again Sean took all the worry from us and contacted the local council, gravedigger and local Catholic priest who officiated at the burial. Sean's thoughtfulness and kind attention to detail throughout the whole process was fantastic!

My family and I would like to thank Sean and his colleagues for looking after my mum so well. They were professional and efficient throughout whilst being understanding and attending to every detail, I cannot recommend them enough!
