(posted on behalf of my father) When my wife died a few weeks ago, Mark Wait was our immediate choice for funeral services: in the past, he had provided them with regard to my mother-in-law and our niece and we had been very impressed. He came out at midnight to take my wife from our home to a local chapel of rest and from that point he put us entirely at our ease. He explained all that he did, organised everything just as we wished and was wholly professional and repectful whilst at the same time being warm and informal. For me, our son and our daughter, this was the worst time of our lives but he ensured that the funeral was a fitting tribute to a wonderful person. We would recommend him without hesitation.
Exceptional service from a kind and compassionate funeral director. We received such professional and thoughtful support from Mark, that it made a very difficult time in our lives much more manageable. I would recommend them wholeheartedly.
Following my mother’s death, I researched possible Funeral Directors in the area. Mark Wait had excellent reviews, in fact they were all 5 star and I was concerned by this. I phoned Mark and he was both empathetic and genuinely concerned for our bereavement. From that moment his advice and kindness during this distressing time was second to none. The funeral was a very small and simple affair, where even minor issues had the potential to become magnified. Mark however, ensured he knew exactly what we wanted and fulfilled all our wishes perfectly. I fully understand people’s 5 star reviews, and would unreservedly recommend his services.
