Testimonial: "excellent service, care and attention"

I would like to thank you for the excellent service, care and attention in helping me through such a very sad time and for your sensible advice furing a period in which it is difficult to be objective.

Family, friends and I especially thank you and all your staff for the kindness and courtesy extended to us at all times.

I had though the choice of a Funeral Director intially to be of little significance and essentially nothing more than a procedure. It occured to me only later how fortunate I was to have chosen Aubrey kirkham Funeral Directors.

Yours sincerely

The flowers were absolutely beautiful, just the sort my mum loved, thank you to Floranz for doing them.

Wishing you all the best in the future.

Yours sincerely

Testimonial: "efficiency and sheer professionalism"

After our beloved wife and mum sadly passed away on the 19th May, our initial approach to Aubrey and his daughter Leanne was more or less at random that seemingly accidential choice was surely meant to be.

You may take for granted the efficiency and sheer professionalism in which they prepared for and conducted Margaret's funeral. We would rather speak of those factors that ran deeper and must be at the heart of a funeral directors calling. When Leanne first came to us she came to a family who scarcely knew what to expect, but she at once conveyed a feeling of peaceful ease with her quiet sensitivity and compassion. And so it was every step of the way whether in our own home, at their beautiful chapel of rest at Four Crosses, or the Crematorium, and so it was withAubrey. There was always that atmosphere of reasurance and support that enable an occasion of inherent sadness to be borne with fortitude and calm.

It takes a special kind of person or persons to generate and to communicate a sense of relative order and stability to families who are necessarily hurting and find themselves prey to emotions they find hard to deal with.

The family touched our hearts tremendously when we learned that Margaret would be attended by a female in preparation for the celebration of her life, this was so important to us that her dignity and respect was recognised in death also. To know that someone you loved is being so well cared for had a profound impact on us. The day of the funeral arrived; again we were moved by the Kirkham's handling and sensitivity of the given situation when the Funeral Conductor led the hearse away from our family home as a mark of respect. We felf so humbled by their compassion and that was clear for all to see.

Aubrey Kirkham and Leanne are that kind of person, and we feel privileged to have known both them and the qualities they bring to their particular - We say business although with certainty it is something rather more than that.

Yours truly

Testimonial: "service was faultless"

Just to say thank you so much for guiding us through a difficult time and for carrying out "E's" wish to return home to Devon.
Everything went so well on the day. Lovely choir and Rev Jane was excellent.
Your service was faultless. We really think you went that extra mile ( or 450 odd!).
Even though the circumstances were unfortunate, it was our pleasure doing business with you again!
We can highly recommend you.
