I am so glad I chose M L Williams as the service they provided was professional and excellent from start to finish. Having dealt with Leighs and also Lorraine they both helped me greatly when choosing the bespoke plan. Everything was well explained and they answered all my questions clearly. Special mention to Rachel our funeral director who did an excellent job. All the staff and their vehicles were well presented at all times. I highly recommend M L Williams.

The service provided by the whole team was perfect. Pauline in particular was respectful but friendly, efficient and responsive. She looked after the family with great skill and sensitivity on the day of the service. We are grateful to her and the ML Williams team for making a difficult time as comfortable as possible.

A special thanks to Leigh and everyone for making a difficult time easier. Everything was as well as we could have hoped and I'm very happy with everyone's sensitive and accommodation throughout the process and helping with visits before the funeral. Thanks again.

I was extremely disappointed and angered by the service that I received from this funeral parlour ,I was hounded and threatened with legal action within 3 weeks of the funeral due to them demanding the outstanding balance of the funeral costs at no time during the consolation did they state that the bill must be paid within weeks of the funeral , I payed the deposit and said the remaining cost will be covered the by estate once the money had been realised (standard industry practice ) I explained this but the calls and emails persisted I got my Solictor to speak to them but the calls and emails still keep coming increasing in severity instead of being left to grieve in peace I was continually harassed by this firm and eventually threaten by there solicitors with legal action 3 weeks after the funeral I then contacted my solicitor who spoke to there’s and literally told them to call the dogs off once he spoke professional to professional the matter was resolved in minutes and when funds were realised they got there money my solicitor who has exacuted many estates has said he has never seen or heard of this level of Harassment before also there overall service was rubbish they gave me a big list of things todo and after speaking with a priest was told the majority was there responsibility to complete and at the funeral the driver didn’t even now what cemetery we where taking the coffin to so after the service i was in floods of tears and then asked “where are we taking the coffin” and they had left the collection box and my mothers picture at the church when I went back to collect these items the priest inform me how disorganised the firm had been he was very disappointed and shocked and the level of service they provided so please do not use this firm as it will only bring more stress and anguish into your life at an already very emotional and upsetting time (the bag piper was excellent ) follow up : Do not contact me , your service was piss poor at best and you customer service is in the toilet

I had very little experience in arranging a funeral - but I needn't have worried. From first contact the service was excellent. Lorraine guided me through all the necessary arrangements and everything went smoothly from start to finish. Five stars well deserved for Lorraine, Carl and team. I'd be more than happy to recommend ML Williams to anyone looking for a first class Funeral Director.
