On behalf of Elizabeth Sayers family, I would like to thank Claire Ward and her John G Hogg, Pallion for their support during a very difficult time for us all. Claire's sympathy, kindness, compassion and patience were so very much appreciated by all of us. As anyone who has lost a much loved member of their family knows, the grief is overwhelming. There is so much to do and to organise but Claire's gentle guidance and her discreet organisation meant that everything was perfect. A huge thank you to you all.

We would like to send our utmost gratitude and thanks to John G Hogg Funeral Directors Pallion. From the moment we contacted them at the passing of our father we knew we were in good hands. John Snr was very professional, empathetic and compassionate. Nothing was too much trouble and John was always on hand to guide us through the funeral arrangements and even after the funeral taking time to speak with our mother ensuring she has plenty of support. From the first phone call through to the cremation of our father, John G Hogg full team were professional and caring. We cannot thank you all enough for your support through one of the hardest times. Thank you so much from all the family and friends of Robert Martin.

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.
