Testimonials

Nathan, Jeremy and the Penrose Team,

​My wife, myself and our family would like to say a heartfelt thank you for the wonderful service we received from Penrose. We could not have asked for kinder or more helpful people and certainly everyone who attended David’s funeral gave high praise indeed to the whole event.​

I cannot recommend Penrose highly enough on the amazing service provided and wish you all the very best in the future.

Steve and Brenda Bester - December 2017

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

Dear Brendon,

Just a note to say how much I appreciate you sending the order of service to New Zealand for Joanna …. I had not realised that she had passed and for you to provide the Order of Service so long after the event was very kind of you.

Thank you again for your kindness and effort,

Anna Slater - December 2021
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

To all at Penrose

Thank you so much for making a terrible day more bearable, you all acted with the utmost respect and support from beginning to end.

Keep up the good work,

Nicola and Kevin - July 2020

Nathan, Brendon and all at Penrose,

Thank you so much for all you help and care with mum’s funeral.

Best wishes,

Gillian, Jez, Chris, Lesley and family - January 2020

Dear Nathan, Jeremy and Brendon,

We all just wanted to say thank you for the way you looked after our Dad’s cremation. It was lovely to see the video you made for us and we felt you went above and beyond.

Many thanks,

Debbie, Jon, Vanessa, Adele and Sue - June 2020

To Nathan and all at Penrose, I just wanted to thank you for the sensitivity, care and respect you showed my Grannie yesterday. She looked amazing and I’m sure you caught a glimpse of her incredible 100 years as my dad spoke at the grave-side. You don’t have an easy job but I hope you know how grateful people are that you do it so well.

Your manner and conduct was gentle, considerate and supportive, thank you for all you did to make yesterday so special. You have been given the gifting and attitude needed to help bring peace and blessing during difficult circumstances. May you know God’s peace and blessing as you continue to serve others in this way, Thank you

Cally (Winnie’s Granddaughter) - Oct 2016
