The family and I were so happy with the Woodland funeral for Richard on March 17th. I think in every way it followed what Richard and I had discussed beforehand. It must have been quite a new experience for a lot of people, and I was so glad that it was possible to combine old traditions with a new way of doing things.

You and your colleagues were so sympathetic in following our wishes, and in keeping in the background during the service. It all seemed to follow so well, and helped to set the mood of informality combined with love and respect for Richard.

I was so glad that I discussed having our grandchildren present with you. You were absolutely right, they took it all in their stride. And somehow the parts that I thought might be frightening, simply weren't. 5 year-old Ariadne has been drawing pictures of the flowers, and 5 year-old Jude has been composing eulogies for his grandfather.

So, thank you for guiding us through the funeral. And thank you for keeping an open mind on how it was conducted. That was much appreciated by all the family.

Georgia - March 2024

I just wanted to say a big Thank You for looking after Andrew, Chris Nick and myself so well over the last few weeks. It culminated in a beautiful service and a very moving little ceremony at the Crem. Which, by the way, is one of the nicest I have been to. It has a perfect mood to it.

Rebecca - November 2023

I just wanted that there are no words to say how thankful I am for everything you have done for James.  I’m so grateful for the professionalism of everyone in your team at James’s funeral yesterday, but also the incredible attention to detail in every aspect.  James would’ve absolutely loved it.

Thank you personally for your kindness and your thoughtfulness at such a difficult time.

Victoria - November 2023

I would like to express my sincere thank you for the funeral services you provided for my John's cremation and the complete day. 

The warmth and support I have received helped me along a very painful journey and also offered to my family members and those attending the day.  

The day was well orchestrated, very seamless, and I cannot thank you enough for your care and professionalism.

Thank you all.
