Testimonials

I really can’t thank the team at Penrose enough for the beautiful funeral they managed for my dear husband Fred. Especially Nathan for helping us plan the day with such care and dignity.

I met Nathan’s dad Jeremy for the first time when he arrived with the cortege to collect us from home. Immediately I felt totally at ease with this charming charismatic gentleman leading the service perfectly from begining to end.

Thank you so much

from Georgie

Dear Nathan,

Just wanted to say a Big Thank you to all of you, for your support and kindness to us all upon the death of our lovely dad Fred Bond. Could you please pass on a thank you to Jon Standard as well for the lovely service he gave.

We are all very grateful for everything you and the team did for us…Thank you

Annie, Mick, Tina, James and all the Bond family - February 2024

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

Nathan and Jeremy, Thank you so much for waiting for me tonight, I really appreciate it. I’m so pleased I got there to see mum, she looks lovely and looks like she’s just having a lovely sleep. I love that she is holding all the photos and roses close to her, that is a lovely touch, thank you. I will most definitely be recommending your services.

Maggie - July 2017

Dear Jeremy, Nathan and the funeral boys,

Thank you for your kindness, patience, professionalism, your unswerving aplomb at our weird requests, and for your versatility in adapting to necessary last minute restrictions and changes due to Covid.

Above all though thank you for taking care of my dad,

Love

Jackie - December 2020
