Testimonials

Many thanks for the care you gave to mum after her passing.
For your professionalism and empathy as you guided and assisted us from first contact through decision making, changing our minds and making new choices of casket and where mum should finally rest.
For the respect and dignity you showed mum and all of us by accommodating our visits to see mum even at short notice and facilitating us to follow mum on her last journey – in particular the multiple requests to add items to her casket, bit by bit, to the very last moments before her burial. It meant so much also to her sons and grandsons to be included in the ceremony as pall bearers. No matter what we asked it did not appear to fluster or challenge you and at no point did we feel like we had anything other than your full attention to get the details right for mum and her family. Heartfelt thanks to you all.

I write to thank you for the service you provided at the time of my mother’s death. As Mum was something of a feminist, to have a service such as yours was so very appropriate. You dealt with us so sensitively but in a down to earth and friendly way. This made the experience so much better than it might have been had we chosen a more “traditional” approach. I would be happy to recommend you to anyone.

Thank you so much for your kind and professional handling of my mother’s (Kitty Salter) funeral.

You were like part of the family in how you showed so much care and consideration during what was a hugely difficult time for us. You very kindly and gently guided us through what we needed to do in a very professional and trusted way. Nothing was too much trouble and you flexibly worked around our needs unlike the big ‘conveyor belt’ type corporates who lack feeling and charge hugely inflated prices.

At a time when we felt most vulnerable and distressed you gave us the best advice, helping and comforting us throughout and checking on us afterwards too.

Mum would have been very proud and pleased with how everything went.

We are very appreciative of what you did and highly recommend your services.

We cannot thank you enough for making Mum’s final journey so lovely, and for helping us all so much – you truly are the best!

Thank you both for the beautiful funeral which you arranged for my deceased husband, Harold. Your attention to detail was very much appreciated by myself and all the family.

Thank you seems such an inadequate word for the compassionate and efficient way you dealt with dear Rob’s funeral, but the family and I mean it in the sincerest way possible. The funeral itself was a very special tribute to Rob and that, I feel, was solely due to your excellent service. A special thank you to Lel who seemed like a dear friend from the moment she entered our home.

I would just like to thank you for the kind and gentle way you handled all the arrangements for dear M’s funeral.You were all so caring and considerate and us all with kindness, understanding and respect. It was a day of sadness but also one for celebrating a long and interesting life and your support gave us a great sense of peace.You handled the day with all the care and dignity that this amazing lady deserved. I am especially grateful to you for making the day so much easier for me to cope with. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Can I try and thank you both for all your help in making the unbearable bearable. You have provided us with a final beautiful memory.

After our mother died we found Wallace Stuart through the Natural Death Centre website and we were so glad that we did.  Sarah and Lel completely understood what we wanted, never tried to impose their ideas on us, and were full of valuable advice.  Their comfortable and gentle manner made all the decisions so much easier than we had expected.  Amongst other things, they designed a beautiful service sheet which absolutely captured our mother’s life, and which was really appreciated by everyone who saw it.  On the morning of the funeral, they collected buckets of un-arranged flowers and shrubbery picked from the garden and transformed them into exactly the kind of informal coffin decoration our mother would have wanted.  At both the cremation and at the service of thanksgiving, they could not have been more helpful or more unobtrusive.  Suffice it to say, friends of our mother have asked us for their details.  We cannot recommend them highly enough.

Please give our thanks to your team, to Minty for her sensitive leading of the service and to you, Sarah, for your kindness and sympathy. Knowing that my husband is resting in such a beautiful place is comfort to us all.

Just a note to say what a wonderful day it was, it could not have gone better than it did. A perfect celebration of Dad’s character and life which followed both his and mum’s wishes in every way, which is a great comfort and was quite an achievement by all involved.
Sally (home burial)

To both of you, thank you for your kindness and consideration, in respect of Mum. Your service was first class. We most definitely could not have wished for Mum to have been anywhere more comforting.

Thank you so much for your kindness and care in arranging our mother’s funeral.She was a very private person and it was just as she  would have wanted it to be.
J.Curley and S.Lloyd

It’s easy to say “Thank you” but it’s hard to find a way to let you know the warmth there is behind those words today…I hope this message helps to show at least in part the very special gratitude that is felt deep in the heart because your thoughtfulness and all the kindness that you show will always be remembered and appreciated so. Thank you.
C.Mason

Thank you so much, Your care and thoughtfulness was very much appreciated by all our family at Brian’s service at Sedgemoor crematorium yesterday. The support and help you gave to Val over the last few days was outstanding. Again, thank you.
T.Andrew

I just wanted to thank you both for taking such good care of Dad and for being so supportive and helpful to Mum and the rest of the family during a difficult time. Thank you also for your hard work on Monday. I think Dad would have been very proud and pleased with the service and we could not have done it without you.

Just a note to say a big “thank you” for looking after Mum and providing excellent service. Your kind thoughts were very much appreciated at a very difficult time.
J and L.

A quick note to repeat our thanks for a superbly organised funeral for Alan. We will be recommending you to our many “aged” friends. Formality was what the family was looking for and the service and your splendid attire ideally suited the occasion. The very best of luck with your business.
