At a very difficult time William H Painter helped and supported us through every step of the way. Cheryl at the castle Bromwich branch was so kind and thoughtful. I would highly recommend painters as they take away all the stress and worry and deal with every detail of the process. Thank you

Jeanette Husselbee at William H Painter, Castle Bromwich came highly recommended to my family to help organise my Father's funeral. Jeanette made the entire experience totally painless she helped and supported us throughout the entire process. She designed a beautiful order of service for us and everybody said it was one of the nicest they had ever seen!! We as a family have no problem in recommending Jeanette to other families that may be going through this terrible ordeal. Jeannette once again thank you for everything you did for us and helping us give my Father a wonderful send off - from myself and the Burns family x

I am writing on behalf of my grandparents, they would like to say a massive thank you to Jeanette, Jackie and Victoria for all their kindness and sympathy during the difficult time over the Christmas period, when Vera Holmes sadly passed away. The past few weeks have been extreamley difficult for my Nan and she thanks you for such kind words and the support you have given her during this time. So again. Thank you!

Excellent service from all the team, all done with such dignity and compassion. From collecting Dad from his house when he past away to the whole funeral service. Suzie from the Chelmsley and Castle Brom branch is a credit to the team. She looked after me with such kindness and answered every phone call/email with precision (and there was a lot of them) The day of the funeral ran so smoothly and was conducted just how we wanted and was a beautiful service.

A huge thank you to Emma Welch and the William H Painter Yardley team for their exceptional and professional service in caring for my Nan and arranging her funeral. Everything they did for us was perfect, and their support made an extremely difficult day much easier. I will continue to recommend their services to others in need.

Emma and Helen could not have been more helpful in the organising of my Aunt's funeral at the Solihull Branch. The second time the family have used the services of William H Painter. The day ran smoothly with Trevor, the service just as we had requested with no issue at all. The celebrant Jackie was just so helpful too. Thank you so much we are so grateful that you made my Aunt's celebration of life a memorable one to all. Julie & Jim and family.

Our mother's funeral was handled so professionally by Julie and the team, and we cannot thank them enough. Frankie Campbell, the celebrant they recommended was so gentle and kind to us, and also managed to deliver the most beautiful service, which made the funeral into a celebration of a life well lived. The Orders of Service were lovely, and we were hand held every step of the way. Being able to spend time with mom before the service was also dealt with empathetically and the personal touches that they had taken the time to do truly touched us. Forever grateful and we would definitely recommend.

Excellent, professional and compassionate service from David Ford. David explained everything to help us select services we wanted. His communication was super good always had time to explain and gave us time to ask questions. Katie Halford-McWilliams provided excellent and compassionate Directorship service on funeral day with her team. All of us were very happy with how everything worked so smoothly. Will not hesitate to recommend you to others. Thank you. 🙏🏿🙏🏿🙏🏿

David (Erdington branch) and the team were exceptional from start to finish. He helped us navigate through all of the practicalities of the funeral with such compassion and care throughout, and supported us in organising a wonderful service for my father. We receive a genuine, personal and professional service and I would recommend to anyone looking for the same for their loved one. Thank you.

Faultless service from start to finish with genuine, caring staff. The Chapel of Rest at Yardley is simply beautiful. We visited twice and on both occasions the lady knocked the door very gently and whispered ‘hello *name*, you have a visitor’. This was such a wonderful touch, so respectful. Please continue to do this for families. On the day of the funeral itself, the staff were courteous, helpful and highly professional but everything was done with a very friendly and human touch which we appreciated. They made a difficult day bearable. Special thank you to Katie (Yardley) and Emma (Dovehouse) for all that you did and I’m glad we chose Painters to look after our dad x

I cannot thank Suzie (Yardley branch) enough for her compassion, kindness and guidance, from collecting dad in the middle of the night, right through to the funeral. Her support was unwavering and nothing was too much trouble. A professional service delivered with a personal touch. I dont know how we would have got through this heartbreaking time without her. Thank you, Suzie, you have been a guiding light at the darkest moment of our lives. From Malcolm Dempster's family.

They say first Impressions are the most important and to me they are, today myself and my husband came to William h painter at yardely to say our goodbyes to nan! The staff were so welcoming. They took us threw to see nan she was in the orchid room and the level of respect shown to nan was so heart warming, the door was knocked before entering and the lady addressed nan To say she had visitors. They informed us of a side room if we needed a little time and made sure we were OK! From our experience today I couldn't recommend them enough thank you for today you made a hard day for us alot more comfortable and it was so nice knowing nan is in such caring hands ❤

I can’t recommend the Yardley branch highly enough. The staff we dealt with, Helen and Katie, were absolutely fantastic. They helped guide us through the whole process, they were professional but at the same time very friendly and caring. They put us at ease and made the process of arranging dad’s funeral so simple, which is just what we needed as we have never done this before. They genuinely made us feel like we were important and that the care of dad was their top priority. Every single time I spoke to them they asked how we were and how mom was doing. I just can’t fault them and I’d be more than happy for them to take care of me when the time comes!
