Dear Nathan, my sister and I would like to thank you for all your help and advice after my dear mum, Joyce, passed away. The day was beautifully conducted by your staff and we are so thankful for that. The service sheet was so lovely, please thank your father for that.

To Nathan an all staff at Penrose

Thank you for making the worst day of my life bearable.

The difficulties I faced arranging a funeral for my beloved husband were made easier with your empathy, compassion and professionalism, particularly considering the added pressure during the Pandemic.

Love always

Dear all,

We would like to thank you for all the care and attention you gave towards our relative Eva Wright recently. You were all most respectful at all times and we greatly appreciated your help before, during and after the funeral. We are also very impressed with the quality of the recordings of the service and in these times it will be greatly valued by the family and friends.

Thank you once again
