Testimonials

Dear Jeremy and Nathan,

We would just like to thank you for the exemplary way you conducted Bill’s funeral on September 28th at Basildon Crematorium. Every aspect was just as we hoped it would be. You were always understanding and re-assuring.

Thank you

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

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,

Julie and Martin - February 2021

To Jeremy, Brendon and the rest of the fabulous team at Penrose Funerals

We just wanted to say what a truly fabulous Funeral we had with Jeremy at the helm. The consideration and respect he showed us and our lovely dad was so very special and lovely to see, he guided us very caringly through everything from start to finish, he made an unbearable day….bearable, for that we are so very grateful. I also wanted to say a big thank you to Brendon who made arranging the funeral so much easier with his calming and helpful way.

We all say thank you for the perfect send off for our Dad.

Our kindest regards and many thanks for everything  xxxxx
