I would really like to thank Cassie, Sophie, Lee and the all staff at W H Putnam. The care and attention was second to none. We as a family felt my mum was looked after with respect and the level of personal care was exceptional from the minute she arrived there. The day we said goodbye to mum was perfect, you really made a difficult situation easier to deal with, we really can’t thank you enough.

Cassie and Lee did an AMAZING job for my Dad and the family. Very compassionate and understanding. The professionalism of this branch is exeptional and Cassie was with us every step of the way making sure all little details are in place. Lee has shown us massive support and respect before and during the funeral. Big thanks from the bottom of our hearts to the both of you .

Paula was wonderful, and guided me through whole process. She was always available for questions/queries, or just a chat! Nothing was too much trouble, or a problem. On the funeral day everything ran smoothly, overseen by Lee and his team, so we were able to just grieve and be together with family and friends. Highly recommend.

Putnams have done a few family funerals for me, two very hard ones my mum and my brother. Lee made the whole experience easy for me and nothing was any trouble for him. Cass was very helpful and a pleasure to deal with. So as a family we would like to thank you very much for making the days as best as they could be. I would highly recommend putnams

Lee and his team at WH Putnam were fantastic when entrusted with the care and necessary arrangements for my mother's funeral which took place on 12.02.2021. Lee was the person I liaised with the most and I found him very caring, approachable and informative regarding what I had to do before hand. He was also most helpful when it came to dealing with the cemetery officials, getting the Order of Service sorted, and was very accommodating of our needs - nothing was any trouble for Lee and his team. The feedback too from those who attended the funeral or participated via livestreaming have been positive. Most comments have been about how the funeral was beautiful, well organised and dignified - I couldn't have asked for better. The way things were handled by Lee and his team made it a bit easier for me, this being my first time of arranging a funeral. We are truly grateful for the excellent and professional service received.
