To all at Penrose Funerals,
Please accept my thanks for the sensitive and professional way in which you carried out my mother’s funeral arrangements. My brothers and I were also extremely happy with the way everything went on the day.
…and I wish to thank both Jeremy and Nathan for your help and courteousness throughout
To Jeremy, Nathan, Brendon, Jon and the test of the team,
Thank you! for your friendly and efficient service, from when you first arrived to take dad into your care to the end of the funeral. We would definitely recommend you. Much appreciated.
A few words of thanks to all who helped me with the loss of my husband. He had a wonderful send-off thanks to Penrose and the Royal Artillery Association.
I was very grateful with the help and respect given to me and his daughters on our first visit and also when I collected the ashes.
Thank you all once again,
Thank you to all at Penrose for helping both of us through what could have been a difficult time under very trying circumstances.
The caring way you dealt with my Mother, Flossie’s funeral over the telephone, your kindness in fulfilling all our wishes and the respect and professionalism shown today made it a day we shall always treasure.
Thank you again,
To Penrose Funerals,
