February 2018
Thank you, everyone, at Bennet’s for making dad’s farewell journey so special. Your caring attitude from start to finish went a long way in making such a tough time bearable. We really wanted to make the funeral service special and you gave us the time and advice we needed to do this. The Land Rover Hearse was fabulous, so unique and I just knew that wherever dad was, he would have been smiling and giving us a big thumbs up. As a family, we really can’t thank you enough.

Bennetts in your community – Local funeral service Rayleigh

Jane Bennett managing director of Bennett’s Funeral Directors has implemented a legacy for the benefit of the local community. At times it’s meant rolling up her sleeves, donning Wellies, or dusting off her walking boots and at others, ditching footwear altogether for the red-hot embers of Brentwood Community Firewalk.
