I was put at ease. In a very difficult time

“From the first contact with Mark, I was put at ease. In a very difficult/stressful time, it was reassuring that Mark had the patience, understanding and professionalism, to ensure that all of our requirements were catered for. I would have no hesitation in recommending Mark to anyone, every detail was covered, all of this and a very competitive price, what more could you want.”

Google Reviews

    review rating 5  (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.

    review rating 5  I would not hesitate in recommending Mark Wait and his team. During a very difficult time he treated my grandmother with utmost respect and made sure that all of the arrangements had been taken care of from the very start. He ensured that every small detail had been looked at and that everything ran smoothly. I can not rate highly enough Mark by making a difficult time bearable and run smoothly.

    review rating 5  The service Mark provided was excellent. At a very difficult time, his understanding and empathy supported my family and I perfectly. The advice and guidance was reassuring and allowed us to make choices calmly and with confidence. The organisation and the communication provided by Mark was extremely professional. I would highly recommend his services.
