We’ve had a fair few deaths in the family, but the most recent was the first time we have used John G Hogg and myself and all of my family have said how amazing these funeral directors are. Stephen is lovely, he explained everything so well and showed so much care towards us all (loved one included). When we received the ashes today, Stephen was even kind enough to ask about another two worries he knows my family are facing, which is astounding considering how many families they must deal with. Lauren was also so friendly when we visited the chapel. Over all, they are by far one of the best funeral directors around and they made such a difficult time a lot more pleasant and less stressful. Thank you for looking after our loved one and being so caring and comforting & everything else yous have done ❤️

Sudden death of my soon to be husband Craig…..Claire and the rest of the team were amazing. The care, compassion and empathy shown was second to none. They supported me with putting his wedding ring on and they removed it when I asked. Fantastic service from wonderful people. Thank you all so much x

From the moment we contacted John Hogg funeral services Pallion on the phone right through the process to the end of the service and burial, they were very professional, helpful and caring. Stephen the funeral director was outstanding nothing was to much trouble whether it be small or big the request. Hoggs exceeded what we expected and gave our father a quality send off we only could have dreamed of. Thank you all for a perfect send off for our father and husband from Hilda (wife) Alan (son) and Tracey and Julie (daughters) 💔💔💔💔

The service from John Hogg Family Funeral Directors was excellent. In particular the support and attention to detail from Stephen Hammond, made what was a sad occasion all the more bearable. Extremely professional, but also empathetic. We cannot recommend highly enough.

Outstanding organisation of recent family funeral. Compassionate, professional and supportive, John and his team have been so reassuring and caring of us all as we carried out Mum's final wishes.

From the moment we walked into the offices we received a fantastic and professional service. Everything was explained to us in a friendly way with no pressure to spend more, in fact the coatings were excellent all clear with no hidden extras. We were contacted throughout with updates and any relevant information we needed. On the day everything was very professional with Natalie leading the way, she looked brilliant and acted even better. Everyone we dealt with had a great skill set of being able to read emotions which allows them to deliver a personal service that I am not sure could be surpassed. I would like to thank them for the send off they gave my dad.

Cannot rate this company highly enough for their compassion, empathy and professionalism, when looking after my late Father. Particular thanks to Stephen and the team for keeping my family and I on the right track, at a time when perhaps you’re not thinking straight. They made the arrangements seamless and painless for us, which was a load off our minds. Thanks also for the recommendation of Chris May for the service. He delivered exactly what the family wanted, just as he said be would. Such a lovely guy. Absolutely first class from start to finish.
