If we could give more stars we would. The service we received from Farthings was “ Outstanding “. We knew from our initial first meeting we had found the right place for our beloved Dad. Francesca was just amazing from start to finish showing such care & compassion at the most difficult time of our lives. Nothing was too much for her and she always kept us in the loop. We can highly recommend Farthings , if you want to give your loved one the perfect funeral, then look no further because you will not be disappointed.

Thank you so much for all the support and help from our first walking in without an appointment and the welcome we received that day. I can highly recommend Farthings and the personal touches they helped with. We are truly grateful to Farthings after our sad loss and cannot thank Chloe, Jamie and Francesca enough for all the help and support throughout our difficult time. THANK YOU so much from Helen and Stephen

I would rate more stars if I could, Everyone and everything was fantastic, my husband wanted a direct funeral, I expected him to be taken and that was the end after reading about direct funerals, however I got to pick my husbands clothes, music for his cremation, even seeing him at the Chapel of rest twice, we all cuddled a bunny before he was taken from home and at the Chapel we left loads of pictures & letters. On the day of the funeral Taris phoned me to say everything went beautifully, the bunch of roses were on top of his coffin from us, they even took picture on the day and said did I want them sent, honestly if you want a direct funeral this is the place to go, thank you all, from the bottom of my heart, you made it everything and more ❤️

I was recommended Farthings by a friend who had used their services for both parents. From start to finish everything was dealt with very professionally. Francesca was amazing keeping me informed throughout and dealing with any queries promptly. Thank you to everyone involved who made the day exactly as I wanted.
