I cannot thank all at James Dykes for everything and praise them more highly. All staff excelled in every aspect of funeral care. There was nothing that they did not exceed our expectations tenfold in making the whole process so much less stressful. A professional, exceptional service without flaw from every member of staff. Thank you to Wendy and all the highly skilled team at Janes Dykes.

Many thanks to Wendy and staff. The process was faultless from start to finish and beyond. Professional, yet compassionate understanding guidance throughout a very difficult time.

From the outset, Wendy was most helpful and supportive. Her communications by email and phone were always relevant and well-timed.

Wendy held our hands throughout the entire process. Alan had prepaid for the majority of his funeral, however, Wendy talked us through the additional options and expenses involved. Wendy checked in with us the day after the Cremation to make sure we were ok. We cannot thank Wendy enough for all of her assistance, guidance and support

Wendy was very easy to talk to and put us at ease, explaining everything clearly. All our email queries were answered quickly too. On the day, both the funeral director and driver were professional but also friendly without being invasive. Thank you to all involved.
