I was really impressed with the whole service from first contact to cremation, but I felt real comfort in how mum was presented in the funeral home, she looked most peaceful and beautiful. As a family we would like to thank Hannah and the team who treated us with respect and empathy. I would like my funeral to be handled by Hammerton's but hopefully not for a long while yet Ha Ha. But seriously Thanks again Hammerton's for guiding us through a very difficult time in our lives.

My mum chose Hammertons for her funeral when she purchased a funeral plan many years ago. This was a wonderful decision on her behalf. My sister and I cannot praise the company highly enough. Every single tiny detail is taken care of and nothing is too much trouble from any of the team. Every phone call and email is promptly and sympathetically replied to, and we never felt rushed in any of our decisions. The 100% professionalism of the team at Hammertons made a difficult time much more bearable. Every aspect of the funeral was exactly as we wished . It was impeccable. We would also recommend the catering suite at Hammertons for a , smaller funeral . The catering itself was lovely and all home-made , fresh and extremely tasty. The catering staff including the waitresses could not have been more caring, which made the whole experience pleasant. The whole team should be proud their empathy and professionalism . They are a credit to the company and to themselves

Hammertons provided a caring and compassionate service from the moment we made contact with them, right through to the funeral itself. Dawn gets a special mention for helping us make decisions and for gently guiding us through the process of arranging my mother’s funeral, and Craig led the team with such care and kindness on the day. Nothing was too much trouble. Highly recommended.

On the passing of my father, Anna and Chris attended to collect my dad, and they offered no condolences whatsoever I took my mum into the living room as we didn't want to see him being taken away and even told them this but within ten minutes Anna came into the living room to ask my brother and I to help get him out as he was quite a large man which is disrespectful and un professional they didn't offer to get another team or anything. This is something that I will never get out of my head and has led to mental health problems and what my doctor describes as ptsd, John came out to apologise in person, but I have to live with the images for the rest of my life no son should have to do that or even be asked in the first place. We would never use this company again and definitely wouldn't recommend them to anyone. Dawn from wombwell was brilliant in taking over

John Sidlow is one of the most genuine friendly and compassionate people you could wish to meet, extremely helpful and the communication is spot on a true professional. The Dedication of the man to walk respectfully in front of the funeral cars both leaving the property and the the approach to the crematorium despite very heavy rain speaks volumes for his commitment to delivering his services on a very emotional and difficult day.

I would 100% recommend hammertons funeral directors, From the very first phone call right the way through to the service we was treated with care & respect, nothing was too much trouble. I dealt with Barry, he is such a compassionate man, he treat my grandad with so much care & we knew that he would be well looked after. Everything was explained in so much detail and if there was anything we didn’t understand he took the time to explain it further. Barry & his team made grandads service the very best it could be. Thank you so much

This company could not have been more helpful and compassionate towards my mother’s arrangements they went out of their way to make sure that her wishes were met and they stayed over so that we could see my mother one last time Barry and Clare are a great asset to the company and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this company

I typed on Hemmertons website for some support because I had no idea where to begin, I was treated kindly, respectfully and with sincere care by each and every member of staff at every stage of the process. I was scared to begin organising my Dads funeral so I used the web chat to begin with, I immediately felt at ease. Next ‘Craig’ called from Hammertons he was so helpful and gave me advice about the death certificate process and what to expect etc, I immediately felt a sense of trust in this company. Craig looked after us personally throughout, I was never passed around from One person to the next, I felt 100% supported, guided through each stage with a no hard sell, no rush, very warm and welcoming approach. I never felt silly or unwelcome and I could think clearly about what I wanted. I visited Dad in the chapel of rest where I felt Dad was being looked after and treated with respect. We had a wonderful minister ‘Wayne’ that took the time to understand my Dads personality and really talked the Eulogy with feeling and passion. It was very comforting. The service books are beautiful and the team put them together effortlessly. Nothing was any trouble. We had the live link option available for anyone unable to attend which again was very straightforward and Saved a lot of upset with the restrictions that are currently in place. I am very glad that we got that! The cars dropped us off home afterwards and was happy to bring home the flowers we wanted to keep and keepsakes we had placed on Dads casket. This has been the hardest time of my life as it probably will be for anyone reading this review, I would recommend you called Hammertons, you won’t be pressured into anything and you will be in really good hands. I personally feel that using Hammertons have helped me to be able to focus on other things and the healing process. Thank you Craig and all of the team.
