Kirsty & the team was amazing, went above and beyond. They made special arrangements for us as a family which we truly appreciate. They cared for mum perfectly and helped us give mum a beautiful send off. I had been to 2 previous funeral homes before visiting here and they stood out by far. The compassion and care they put into everything is outstanding and at such a high quality. Highly recommend especially for families, Thank you for everything.

Marissa and her team at James Hawes & Goodchild Funeral Directors provided us with the most professional, compassionate and caring service for my father's funeral. All of the arrangements were taken care of from start to finish with all of the family's wishes respected and accommodated throughout the whole experience. We really appreciated the expert advice, professionalism and patience which was provided by the whole team at James Hawes and Goodchild, who ensured the time leading up to and on the day ran as smoothly as possible and according to schedule.

I really couldn’t thank Ray, Marissa, Dave and the team enough for how much they helped my family, nor could I recommend their services enough. They were incredibly professional yet understanding, and made this difficult experience so much more bearable for us throughout. We were repeatedly reassured not to worry, and to allow them to take some of our stress away around the planning of the day. They were able to accommodate all of our wishes and paid so much attention to detail. My grandad’s favourite colour was red and the coffin bearers even offered to wear red ties/details to reflect that, just small details that really meant a lot to us. Thank you so much again.

A personal recommendation from friends led me to James Hawes and Goodchild and I am very glad it did. They took care of everything with sensitivity and thoughtfulness, responded quickly when I contacted them and followed my wishes carefully. I wish I had not needed to use them but they were a tremendous support at a really difficult time.

My brother Adrian Cheung (25) passed away in a motorbike accident, we appointed James Hawes & Goodchild as his funeral director. The staff were extremely helpful and took care of everything. Funeral arranger Alison Orrow was absolutely brilliant, she was very comforting and went beyond the call of duty to assist us, she always kept us informed, liaise with local authorities and was there to answer any questions we had and guide us throughout this tragedy. Rev. Elizabeth Price led the service, she gave us a home visit a week before the funeral and we worked on the order of service together, friends and family have commented as one of the best church service they've attended as the service was very solemn and The sermon was very relevant to the mourners. The funeral director Peter King and his team were very respectful throughout the funeral, they gave my late brother the respect and dignity he deserved. I couldn't recommend them enough, thank you for giving my brother Adrian a wonderful send off.
