I recently had a funeral with Smiths for my brother Ron and the service I received was fantastic. Jackie in particular I can't thank enough. She was extremely helpful, every question I asked she was able to answer. On the day of the funeral Bobby and all of the team were brilliant. So smart and extremely helpful. Would like to give a special thanks to Bobby in particular for being so kind and caring.

I and my partner recently arranged my mother's funeral with Alfred Smith Funeral Directors and really could not be more pleased and grateful for the service I received. Gill was so lovely and kind and explained everything clearly to us and didn't pressure us into anything. A daunting and emotional task was made so much easier. I'd absolutely recommend them. Thank you Gill.
