Testimonials

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.

From

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

Thank you all so very much​

You are a lovely bunch, you made what was a terrible time much more bearable. Best Wishes,

Dawn and Dee Ivens - April 2019

I just want to say thank you on behalf of myself and my sisters for my father’s funeral. Thanks to you and your staff for helping us through this hard time, you made us feel very comfortable with our roles at the funeral and your professional services we received. We would highly recommend your services to anyone that may be in need.
