Stuart and the staff at Drakes were extremely friendly and helpful. They were very accommodating towards us as a family, and help made the process of planning the funeral very straight forward. They have years of experience, and it showed in the care and quality of service they provided. I would highly recommend Drakes to anyone in the Torbay area.

Throughout the whole sensitive process of planning and delivering a funeral, Stuart was there from beginning to end. His professionalism and care was second to none. Alway at the end of the phone and questions answered asap. The hardest part for us as a family was to personally complete the funeral order of service but it turned out perfect. The Drakes Team were amazing from start to finish

I just wanted to thank both Stuart and Chas for how marvellously I think they managed a very difficult time for our family. They treated us at all time with respect and empathy and could not have done more to make the process happen as painlessly as possible. Chas steered us very well on the eulogy or tribute to my father in law's life. He delivered it with great warmth, poignancy and respect. We could not recommend Drakes highly enough.

As a family, we couldn't rate Drakes of Torbay enough. We felt so supported in a very difficult time. Stuart very quickly took all our worries away and provided an excellent service throughout the whole process, from start to finish. We felt comforted in the way he talked us through a very new and unknown process. The Order of Services were beautifully done and to a very high standard and we were also provided with the opportunity to have a tribute page in honour of our wonderful Dad. Will certainly recommend to anyone in the same position.

This is the second time we have used Drakes. Stuart and his team are extremely efficient and professional. We were guided smoothly through the planning of mom’s funeral and the day. I received a call on the day of the funeral to check if all was ok prior to the cars arriving. Stuart’s gentle manner makes a difficult experience more bearable.
