Useful information to prevent junk mail

But the bereaved need your support, even if they appear to be fine and loneliness is one of their main complaints when it comes to talking about their grief. So what can you do? Here are a few

Margaret’s Testimonial

“I can’t thank you enough for your kindness and attention to detail when working with me on organising mum’s funeral. This is the second funeral I have planned, but was offered far more options and information than last time. Knowing that you were there, to support and guide was a huge comfort to me at a difficult time. Your florist did an amazing job with the flowers – these are now in my courtyard where I can admire them.
