Kenny Bell has managed the funerals for both my father a few years ago and my mum last summer. I cannot put into words how much Kenny helped to make the whole process smooth and comforting – he really listens to the needs of the bereaved family and orchestrates the whole process with minimum stress. On the day of the funeral he ensures a comforting presence. Many thanks!

Dear Steven,

Firstly, let me thank you for the lovely way you arranged Dad’s funeral. It went like clockwork. But I know that is down to your meticulous eye for detail and precision. It was just perfect. Dad would have loved it. It gives the family great consolation to know that it was done just as he would have wanted (and he knew because you did the same for mum).

Hello Kenny,

I’ve spent most of these last weeks chasing my tail trying to fill the big hole left since mum passed away.

Your quiet, gentle and respectful style really carried myself and the family through such a tumultuous time. You steered us through with tact and I genuinely felt cared for as I know both my parents would have done too.

Hopefully we might meet again in lighter circumstances, but a massive thank you for enabling me to feel that this was one of my / our most important jobs in my / our life, very well done. My sincerest thanks.

To Kenny, Steven and staff,

Thank you for everything you have done for us. Truly amazing throughout.

Our family is extremely grateful to this firm for their help with the funeral arrangements for our uncle. Kenny Bell went out of his way to carry out our uncle’s wishes and to make things easy for us, and we greatly value his kindness.

Dear Steven,

Thank you so much for the professional and supportive way you managed Dad’s funeral affairs. The family really appreciate your help.

Absolutely outstanding.

From the moment we called to arrange my Dads funeral nothing was too much for Kenny and his team. From coming to the house on the first day, until the moment we said goodbye, we can’t fault them. If we could give 10 stars we would. Thank you.

Dear Kenny and Steven,

Thank you for your support during our shocking time with the loss of our dear mum. As you know, she seemed reasonably fit for a lady of her age and we just didn’t even have this on our radar.

You are offering a caring service and again many thanks for your help and professionalism with the passing of mum.
