I just wanted to express my thanks and admiration for the way my mother’s funeral was conducted. It was exactly as she would have wished, so dignified in quite difficult circumstances.
We were all so impressed by the attention to detail and consideration offered at every stage, it was a very individual service, and the patience and perseverance and reverence of the gentlemen on your team was much appreciated, many thanks to you all.
Jackie, many thanks to you Kevan and all that made my dad’s funeral such a nice send off, it was strangely a very lovely and relaxing day, just like my dad himself.
I just wanted to say a massive thank you to all at Lodge Brothers for the outstanding service you have given to Dad following the sudden passing of my Mum. From the minute Dad approached yourselves you have shown kindness and support making it as easy as it can be to arrange things. The evening before the funeral, Reg Bye rang and spoke to Dad telling him not to worry all will be okay, and on the day the bearers we so helpful from the minute they arrived at the house with Mum for her final journey, to the very last drop off, also supporting her grandchildren and son in carrying Mum in for the service.
Your recommendation of Fr David Cloake was spot on, such a lovely man who gave Mum the simple but loving send-off Dad wanted.
A huge THANK YOU Lodge Brothers.
Dear Jackie and Bernice
We want to thank you so much! You’ve been so kind, friendly, helpful, accommodating and supportive to me and to Mum. Thank you for guiding us and helping us make the arrangements for Dad. And thank you for taking such great care of him for us, we truly appreciate it.
To all at Lodge Brothers and Barton, Thank you for all the careful arrangements you made and the sound advice you gave us for Barbara’s funeral. Everything went through smoothly with the dignity and reverence we wanted for this final farewell.
Bernice and Jackie helped us through the initial planning and repeatedly allayed our concerns with assurance that all was in hand. James took care of everything on the day and it was excellent. His colleagues were very kind and thoughtful towards us. We are very grateful to everyone.
Dear Jackie and Bernice, on behalf of my family but especially me, thank you for all the help you have given me and my family at a very difficult time. We are all very grateful for all that you have done for us.
I know I picked the right funeral directors for my Uncle’s funeral. He would have loved you two girls and he would have said to me “well done girl, you picked well, lovely Jubbly” all our love to you both.
Dear Jackie, I just want to pass on my thanks to everyone for all you have done in arranging and ensuring the funeral went so smoothly. I especially want you to pass on my thanks to Kevan who was lovely to me throughout all the arrangements and on the day, he is wonderful. Thank you all again.
I would just like to drop a line to say thank you so much for your help in sorting my Father’s funeral.
I have to say it was a time I was dreading, but you were so good that you made it easy and relaxed and I have to say thank you for that, also thanks to your colleague who makes the tea, she makes a good cup.
Again from me and the family thank you for your valuable help
Bernice and Jackie and all the staff at Lodge Brothers
Thank you for making the process of saying farewell to M*** as easy as possible – the day went without a hitch.
Dear Jackie and Colleagues,
Just a short note to thank you for all you did during the arrangements and conduct of my Dad’s funeral. Everything from the initial telephone call and our first meeting through to visiting Dad in the Chapel of Rest and the day of the funeral itself was done professionally with sensitivity and good humour. We had many favourable comments from those attending about the service, the internment and the funeral reception.
You all made a difficult time as ‘painless’ as possible.
