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

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.

I would like to thank W H Painters for sorting literally everything out for us for my moms funeral. Everything was dealt with with the utmost professionalism & compassion. Special thanks to Suzanna at Chelmsley Wood who I dealt with from day one. She helped us through every step keeping us informed & eased any worries I might have & also Helen at Castle Bromwich who was wonderful when mom was at the chapel of rest & Katie & team who ensured the day went smoothly.

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.

Emma dealt with the Funeral of my father in March 2019 and I had no doubts to return on the death of my mother in November 2022. She is excellent. She guided us through the process and we felt a weight had been lifted on our return home. The communication and attention to fine detail meant the funeral ran perfectly and gave a dear mother a good send off. The Reverend was also excellent and they worked together well. On the day of the funeral Victoria took control and handled the procedure and family very well.Thankyou.

I would like to mention that the support received from Julie Kilby has been superb. Julie has been incredibly helpful and sensitive throughout all of this and has always made herself available to speak with us when needed. Julie has been excellent in guiding and supporting us and has provided a really efficient service. I would also very much like to thank Katie and her team on the actual funeral day whom we also thought were excellent. Many thanks.

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.

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.

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. 🙏🏿🙏🏿🙏🏿

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.

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
