Everyone treated my mum with respect and were very kind to us at one of the most difficult time in our lives nothing was too much trouble on the run up and especially on the day of the funeral. A very sad time was made bearable by you all and a special thank you to Kim thanks so much

Kind, compassionate and professional service. They took care of everything and were really transparent about costs which compared to other companies were very reasonable, would highly recommend because they took so much of the stress out of a stressful situation. Thank you to Trish, Wendy and the team, my family are very grateful for your work.

Jeanette at Daventry Road was so friendly and helpful and really took all my worries away. She kept in touch with me all the time and always encouraged me to ask questions if I had any worries at all She introduced me to a wonderful celebrant called Amanda who was just perfection and I really felt that she knew my husband by the time we had finished our chat The service was personal, delivered impeccably by Amanda and I cannot praise the service from both Jeanette and Amanda and all the staff enough.

I can highly recommend Henry Ison & Sons for your loved ones funeral. Paul at Daventry Road was a great support from start to finish, no matter how many times I called and asked something else! Nothing was an issue and everything was even better than expected on the day. Also thanks to Darren on the day and Carol the celebrant who was fantastic and we all really felt like she knew my dad! Great service throughout. Many thanks to them all.

Had an excellent experience at Daventry Road. Paul was exemplary and nothing was too much trouble. After losing both my mother in law and father in law within 12weeks of each other, we saw Paul who went through everything with us with empathy and compassion. He dealt with both funerals and would like to say a huge thanks to him for making a difficult process seem very easy. Strongly recommend ☺️

I would like to share a review from my point of view, as a Celebrant, working with Paul and the families he looks after... Paul is an absolute joy to work with. The compassion and commitment that he shows to each family goes above and beyond. Paul has great attention to detail and this reflects in his input to suggestions for bespoke, truly personal orders of service for families. Paul has a great attitude to his work, nothing is too much trouble. He goes out of his way to ensure that families are happy and given the best service possible. Paul is a genuinely lovely man, who has a real empathy for the very important role that he carries out on a daily basis. Paul understands just how important it is to give each family the care and support that they need at this sad time, to ensure that the lasting memory of their loved one's final journey is a good one. Would I recommend Paul? Yes, I would- you will be in very safe hands.

On behalf of my children and myself, I would sincerely like to thank everyone in the Henry Ison & Sons team who were involved in the planning and handling of my late wife's funeral arrangements which were carried out from start to finish with considerable professionalism, dignity and respect. We really appreciated the wonderful help, support and guidance provided in particular by Debbie Harris at their Kenilworth branch. Debbie's empathy, kindness and all round professionalism were a constant in seeing us through this very sad and difficult period. We would also like to thank all background staff involved with presenting my late wife so serenely for us to visit the Chapel of Rest before the funeral. Although very emotional, it was very peaceful and dignified. Special mention should also be given to Wendy who provided us with such comfort and guidance on the day of the funeral, as well as that little extra spark of empathy that all the congregation picked up on so well. Finally we were especially grateful to their appointed Celebrant, Carol Brankin who created and delivered such a personalised service that whilst acknowledging our overwhelming sadness on the day, also inspired us to treat it equally as a celebration of my late wife's life as well.

After my wife Joan died very suddenly I decided to use Isons in Kenilworth. At the time I knew nothing of them other than the premises looked clean, tidy and very professional when we had walked past. The staff responded very quickly and took my wife to their premises. I was soon in contact with the Kenilworth branch to discuss arrangements. The lady there, Debbie Harris, was extremely helpful and very friendly. She helped me to choose the service required and even helped me to choose the outfit my wife would be wearing. During the several visits to discuss arrangements and to bring things for the cremation Debbie was only too happy to sit with me and chat, this helped me to bear the sad times and lift my mood. Her professionalism during visits was amazing too when I went down to sit with my wife. I cannot recommend this lady too highly. Whatever Isons are paying her is definitely not enough. On the day the Isons team were superb, led by the wonderful Wendy they made everything happen smoothly and were always there ready for anything needed. Robert Hardy, for Joan.

The day went like clock work. I had no idea who to choose. After all my order was still so young and I never expected to be arranging her funeral so soon. Henry Isons did not add to the stress i I was already feeling. For any other service I’d be saying that I’d definitely use them again but I dined want to think about that for a long time to come.

I can’t praise Jenny and Elizabeth at Henry Ison enough. Jenny had organised my Mum’s funeral 2 years ago. Her empathy and attention to detail was outstanding, When I sadly had to bury an elderly close family friend this February, I didn’t think twice about using Henry Ison. Again, the service that Jenny provided was faultless. The service and organising the cremation was not straightforward. One member of the family was living overseas and Jenny liaised with him on a regular basis and navigated her way through difficult and complex family relationships. The actual ceremony was lovely and ran very smoothly with the help of Elizabeth the director at the service. I cannot recommend Henry Ison in Kenilworth enough. Jenny made such a difficult and emotional time, so much better than I would ever have anticipated.

Jenny Ireland and Darren , Funeral Director for our mother's funeral, showed the utmost compassion and care to mum and also to us. Never having had to arrange a funeral before, we all found Jenny to be very supportive to the whole family and helped us every step of the way not just before the funeral but also afterwards. We would recommend Henry Ison & Sons without hesitation - they helped to make a difficult time more bearable and to make the funeral a respectful celebration of our mother's life.

Testimonial sent to email from client permission to post online. Recently my great aunt passed away suddenly. We live in Canada and, as can be appreciated, we’re in a mad fix to get to England and do all the necessary planning, while dealing with the pain and sadness a loss of a family members brings. Right from the beginning (when we were still in Canada) Paul Atkinson made the process as uncomplicated as possible. Paul immediately went above and beyond, handling things like obtaining the death certificate, arranging pick up of our aunt and doing as much for us as possible. He went above and beyond even before we met in person. When we did arrive in England, Paul only continued to impress us. He was kind and patient with us as we asked questions and made decisions. He was non judgemental in our choices and was supportive in our planing for service and cremation. He organized every detail from finding someone to conduct the service, organize cars and even went as far to order our flowers and arrange the wake. We were overwhelmed with the travel and not being familiar with practices and service providers in Leamington and he took care of it all. We were so pleased to have worked with him and can only say good things. Thank you Paul for making an extremely difficult and chaotic time bearable. Our family was able to reflect on our aunt, grieve together and ultimately celebrate her as a person, without having to worry about the red tape... for this we will forever be grateful! Thanks again and take good care! Kellie Ferguson on Leamington Spa

They felt with my mother’s funeral in February we had trouble getting them on the phone. We weren’t able to view the body until 3 days before the funeral that ended up being only two and a half days, then on the day they were closed when we tried to deliver the flowers until 10. Am they even said that we should leave them outside the garage doors, Then when we couldn’t get them on the phone on the day eventually they said someone had gone off sick but the other member of staff was on her way as the funeral was at 12 am this was all a bit last minute we didn’t feel very cared about throughout this entire process

When my Father died in June we went to Henry Ison's in Leamington Spa. The Manager, Paul, was so helpful in every way that the process was made much easier than we had imagined. He guided us re the coffin, order of service etc. etc.and even recommended a superb humanist lady to conduct the funeral. Thanks to Paul we were very pleased at how smoothly everything went, and a sad occasion was made so much better. Our sincere thanks to all of the staff involved. Brilliant service all round.

I highly recommend Yvonne, Chris and the team at Henry Ison. The staff were so supportive and helpful throughout this difficult process. From the first phone call right through to the funeral yesterday they have been so caring and thoughtful. Everything we wanted for my late mother in law was honoured and nothing was too much trouble for them. Excellent service given and we are truly grateful. Thank you so much.

I found the service and approach of Kim and the team at Henry Ison & Sons to of been all I could of ever expected and hoped for. The attention to detail and reflecting the needs of our family was excellent and the time taken to get things just right for us was first rate and we could of asked for nothing more to of been done. Both Kim and all the team that we had contact with were absolutely professional and decent. Many thanks for helping us get through a very difficult time.

The service we received as a family was excellent I couldn’t have wished for more, Kim took me through every detail and made suggestions I hadn’t even thought of and all the time being respectful, sympathetic and supportive. They arranged for me to visit my partner whenever I wished before the funeral and were very supportive through the whole funeral process, we couldn’t have wished for more, the celebrant we had, Amanda, was such a great help and delivered a service that we were all very proud of, she was amazing the way she made it so personal, meaningful and memorable. Such an excellent service was provided by all of the staff at Henry Ison and I will always be grateful to them for helping me and our family through such a hard time.

Amazing Service I chose Henry Ison & Sons because they were a longstanding funeral directors and I felt I would receive a more personal service than the bigger more corporate undertakers, and I was not wrong. Kim at Allesley Old Road branch was just amazing. I lost my husband under tragic circumstances and also had a very tricky family situation, Kim was professional and very compassionate and helped me step by step and made the whole process a lot more bearable. On the day of the funeral Wendy the Undertaker was just as amazing and the drivers too, I was very nervous about how it would go given the tricky situation but Wendy orchestrated is amazingly and everything went smoothly. Thank you all for a brilliant service. Ruth Whitehouse and family

After now using Henry Isons for 3 family funerals I would never go anywhere else during what is a really hard time for a family. Henry Isons have made the whole process of planning a funeral so simple and as stress free as possible. Kim is a wonderful lady who obviously cares about the people that she is working with and was there supporting us through every step.

Our family really appreciate all that was done and the service provided by the entire team at Henry Ison's for our Mothers funeral. In particular, we would like to acknowledge the help and professionalism of Kim, who made the whole funeral planning and organisation process as easy and caring as possible, and for Peter, who's direction on the day enabled the funeral arrangements to pass off so well. Thank you to all at Henry Ison’s
