Obviously at a terrible time it is vitally important that things are handled properly with care, dignity, respect and compassion. From the moment I entered the premises in Hythe I was treated extremely well. All was clear and straightforward, by this I mean costs as well as arrangements. My wishes were totally followed. Arrangements were quickly put in place, ready for me to confirm. Responses to emails were prompt. The funeral was conducted perfectly. Last minute changes by my sons were accommodated. This is a massively important service to the community and has to be done correctly. I would not hesitate to recommend this company.

Far from impressed on first visit. No compassion, no introductions, just seemed to be in a hurry to get through the business as quickly as possible. Little help in answering our questions when actually we found most of the answers on their website afterwards! Decided to go elsewhere where they were very courteous, caring and helpful.

This was the 3rd time of using Waterside for our loved ones over the last 10 years. Every time they have been so kind and helpful and been so respectful to us and our loved ones. Their kindness and professionalism has made an upsetting time more bearable. Helen was very good to us for our initial visit and Sarah was brilliant at subsequent visits and at the funeral service itself. I would recommend them to anyone needing this service.

I have used Waterside Funeral Homes twice now over the years and I have recieved exemplary service on each occasion. Lisa and Sarah have been so helpful and have always been available whether in person, over the phone or email. Nothing has been to much trouble for them and they have guided me when required. On both occasions everything has gone to plan right down to the smallest detail. I would highly recommend Waterside Funeral Home. Thank you for looking after my parents so well when in your care.
