Funeral Director review

Just a quick note to thank you and your helpers, for giving your time to the recent Bereavement Group in Brentwood, Essex. Surprisingly to me, I found it more helpful than one to one counseling. Listening to people other than myself baring their souls gave me some comfort. Once again thanks for your time and effort, it was greatly appreciated.

Funeral Director review

I just wanted to thank you on behalf of my family and I for the absolutely wonderful job you made of my late Father’s funeral. The service your men provided was outstanding and I would like you to thank every one of them for me; they were all so attentive, smart, well spoken and courteous. Thank you Gary, you made something I was dreading much better than I expected. I wish you every success professionally and personally.

Funeral Director review

I have already written to thank Bennetts for the excellent service we received every step of the way. Tina treated us with dignity and respect and was very quick to pick up on our wishes without pushing us into making decisions. We had complete confidence at such a sad time

Mrs E

Funeral Director review

We used Bennett’s this week to arrange my fathers funeral service. From our first meeting to the end they were all fantastic, their meticulous planing and attention to detail cannot be faulted. We cannot recommend this company highly enough. My personal thanks to Ian Best for looking after my family at this terrible time.

John Scott

Funeral Director review

My family and I can’t thank you enough, I echo all the previous great feedback you have and thank you for the professional and caring service you have shown us in the funeral of my Dad yesterday… Special thanks to Mick who made sure everything went perfectly at the Crematorium.
