Thank you so much Zara, for this and for all your very kind and patient assistance along the way, you have made this experience so much easier to handle, I cannot thank you enough.
Zara could not have been more perfect. She held my hand physically and emotionally throughout. Not just mine but my mum’s too. Her warm and caring nature was a great comfort to us all and nothing was too much trouble for her. She even made the effort to come back late and open the chapel for my Dad’s family who had arrived from Ireland the evening before the funeral. We had the most blessed time with him, something I will never forget as long as I live, and she encouraged me to participate with the family when I was unsure what to do. As I left the chapel that evening I felt a peace within my soul that enabled me to get through the next 24hours and beyond.
This level of care and attention to our emotional needs was beyond measure and I will be forever grateful.
To the wonderful team of workers at Lodge Brothers. I was so impressed by the expertise and care by which you carried out a most important ceremony for my late mother. I am so grateful. It makes such a difference; it is marked with dignity and utmost care.
Many heartfelt thanks to you all.
On behalf of the family, and my late mother, I’d like to pass on our huge gratitude to you and all your colleagues at Lodge Brothers & Monk for organising my mother’s funeral so beautifully. You were all so sensitive, yet so professional during the planning, and on the day, everything went perfectly. Keith and his team were an extremely reassuring presence yesterday.
Our sincere thanks to you all.
Just a short note to thank you most sincerely for making Mum’s funeral go so well yesterday. All the family were delighted with how the service went and we thought you hit just the right tone throughout. We also received many compliments from Mum’s friends about the way the service was conducted.
Personally I really appreciated your collaborative approach to “designing” the service. Many, many thanks for giving Mum such a lovely send-off.
Just a short note to thank you Neil, and your team at Lodge Brothers & Monk for everything you did for my mother’s funeral. Everything went as well as we could have hoped, and the care and courtesy shown by yourself and staff was exemplary.
I would also like to thank you for recommending Lynne Mackenzie as our “Celebrant” – she was very collaborative in “designing” the service with me, hit just the right tone during the service and generally helped make everything run very smoothly. I would strongly recommend her to others.
I would like to thank you and the team at Monks. Mum’s funeral went just as we had planned and was a fitting commemoration of her long life and all that she meant to us and others. The fact that Robert Cotton had known her made it much more personal. We were pleased with how each part of the arrangements went, and very glad that further snow held of until the evening!
It is also nice to see some gifts and tributes to Mum on the donations section of your website.
Thank you so much for everything. It all went so well and we were very pleased. And I’m so glad the flowers got to QEP. The coffin looked wonderful with all the flowers and everything.
So thanks again very much. Have a Happy Christmas.
Everything was excellent and thank you for looking after us so well. The celebrant you arranged to take the service was really good, she listened to what we wanted and is so accommodating.
Thank you for your kindness and consideration at this sad time the family were glad of your support.
