Our father passed away at the end of March, just as the country had entered into almost complete lockdown in the face of COVID-19.
We wondered, what, if any arrangements, we would be able to make but our first thought was to contact Lodge Brothers in Weybridge, as they had been marvellous when helping us with our mother’s funeral arrangements in late 2012.
Mel Ponting was our main contact and, from the first telephone conversation, offered us helpful, compassionate and welcome support. Mel guided us with care and kindness as we made our choices, for what we quickly realised would be a very different sort of funeral.
We are extremely thankful for Mel’s expert guidance and thoughtful care to ensure everything went as well as it could. The team on the day of the funeral were also fantastic – professional, discreet, dignified and almost invisible, everything you would want in the circumstances. We were also contacted the evening before to reassure and respectfully confirm arrangements.
All in all, we cannot recommend Lodge Brothers highly enough – the team at Weybridge are a fine example of true professionalism and compassionate care.
