Bill - he is a lovely man. The care and compassion he gave the family during a difficult time was second to none. The whole process was made a lot easier with his expertise.

Carl was exemplary from the start, he dealt with the family with dignity and empathy. Carl was professional throughout our entire dealings with him, as were his team during on the day of the service. The recommendations they gave were excellent as was the decision to bring in Megan as the celebrant. We could not be more thankful for a wonderful send off.

Every single person we had contact with were sympathetic, kind, and personal. From the very initial telephone contact we were reassured and comforted by the help and service we had. We were gently guided through all the processes needed. The funeral was perfect, we could not have asked for more.

After using your services once again can I start with Daren and thank him for looking after us on the day. Next we would like to thank Suzanne and Bill for all their help and support they went above and beyond all expectations. They were there every step of the way for us as a family. Nothing was too much of a bother for them day and night. They made the saddest of times a lot more bearable for us.

When my mam passed away I had no idea what I had to do. I contacted Daren Persson and from the very first phone call they guided me through everything. Every step was easy with their help. I can highly recommend them, fantastic service and very helpful and caring.

Have recently contacted this branch for information on funeral plans. The lady I spoke to was very professional, friendly and knew what she was talking about. At the end of the conversation I felt more aware and certain of my choices. Will be recommending to my friends and family.
