Dear Penrose Team,

Many thanks to you for the dignified way you handled the funeral of my dearest mother Violet Mark, also the help you gave in such a careful way.

Everything was done to perfection and Violet’s family are truly grateful.

Kind regards,

Sharon Smart and Violet’s family - April 2021

Dear Nathan, Jeremy and everyone and Penrose,

Thank you so much for looking after my son – Thomas Street – while he was in your care. The past few weeks have been so distressing but you made organising the funeral so much easier than I thought it would be.

I am especially grateful for the visits that you organised for me, especially the final one. I am also very grateful to Jeremy for your kind words on the day of the service.

I am so pleased that we chose to bring Tom to you. You have made my darkest times a little brighter.

Claire – and all of Tom’s family - March 2020
Nathan, Brendan,

Many kind thanks for the service today and your exemplary conduct and utmost dignity at every occasion at Penrose. Please pass the family’s sincere thanks to Jeremy and his colleagues who were fantastic and so mindful of our Hindu traditions – I wasn’t able to catch them at the end of the day but hoping you could relay back to them.
Kind regards
Piyush - June 2021
