Reviews of our services

  • Firstly very professional. Compassionate, caring and personal treatment. Lauren and Laura made this highly emotional experience a walk in the park. Lauren kept in touch with us every step of the way. Nothing was too much to ask for. Laura brought a sense of humour to our experience, but with a very professional attitude. Sometimes humour can als be compassionate and caring, Which in our experience, was needed.

  • Williams and son were recommended to me through a friend and I couldn't of been happier with the service I received whilst planning my dad's funeral. I felt at ease whilst I was there and had so much contact during the weeks in between. They went above and beyond to help me make the day as special as it could be. I couldn't recommend this company any more. Many thanks to all the the team that helped guid me through such a difficult time

    • Response from Williams & Bell

      Thank you for leaving a review online. We are happy that we provided an important service to you through this difficult time and it's so good to hear the team looked after you and the family well.

  • My initial appointment with the member of staff at the office could have been more professional,not what I expected, however I was very pleased with how things went on the day, it was very smooth and professionally done. A lovely touch was the photograph which was placed in the back window of the herse and beside the coffin at the crematorium. It was a really nice touch which I hadn't expected. Very pleased with everything.

  • When my younger brother died suddenly it was so unexpected and I was wondering what to do first! However after talking to Kate at W Williams on a long phone call initially everything I’d worried about disappeared as they actually arranged everything for me and it was such a relief. We had a Civil Celibrant, Mandy, who delivered a lovely service at the graveside to immediate family only and this final touch took away a lot of the pain one feels at a larger family funeral. I couldn’t have been happier! Catherine James.
