Dear John,
Many thanks for all you did for our Nan's service on Wednesday and for making sure everything was as we wanted. From when we first met with you, you have explained everything carefully and looked after us so well throughout. You, Wayne and your whole team are so caring and professional, it really has made such a difference during this time. Thank you to Bev and Vera for doing a great job on the Order of Service (and patiently making all the changes we asked for). Thank you to Carol for doing the service in such a lovely way and we were pleased you were able to get her to do our Nan's service after doing our Grandads. The flowers were beautiful, the afternoon tea at the Clock House perfect and we really appreciated you collecting us in the car afterwards. The day couldn't have gone better - even the sun was shining...so thank you.

Best wishes Andrea, Jonathan and Tim.........S74

I am sending myself, my Mum's and our families sincere thanks for the service we received for my Dad's funeral. Earlier last year, my Mum and Dad sorted both their funerals out with you but little did we know, how soon one would be needed. We cannot thank Wayne and the ladies (sorry, can't remember your names) who we have dealt with, enough, you have been wonderful. Every step has been smooth and we always felt that you dealt with us sensitively and respectfully. On the day of the funeral, we couldn't have asked for anymore from Wayne and the drivers - thank you for looking after us. A special thank you to Wayne for seeing what a tricky day it was for both of my boys too. The service was beautiful and I know, touched all who attended. We are grateful that what was a difficult day, allowed us to smile, laugh and have wonderful memories. Please pass this on to anyone involved and I would appreciate my comments being passed on to Margaret and Eric. Many thanks again and all the best.......

Wayne & Colleagues, We would like to thank you for the way you looked after us as well as John, in everything you did from coming to see to taking us to Droppingwell Inn. Every detail was perfect. You kept saying "It's what I do" but it's the way you do it Wayne. We can't thank you enough.

Dear Wayne,
Thank you once again on behalf of me and my family for your kind and sensitive handling of all the aspects of our bereavement.You and all of your collegues, guided us through what I feared would be an ordeal when in fact, the service was very calming and I think a very fitting tribute to Malcolm.

Losing someone close is something we are never ready for, then in your grief, you need to plan a funeral. I came to you with the help of my cousin and we were met with great respect for our loss. I'm so glad I came to you, you're so good at what you do. My whole experience of Eric Eyres Funeral service was absolutely outstanding. My family and I want to thank you all for your support, understanding and the respect shown for Dad and us in our darkest time. We would also like to thank Andrew Platt for a wonderful service of thanksgiving and celebration of Dad's life. Thank you.

Jo-anne, Paul, Ashleigh and Amy K.

Christina and the Girls.....S35

I would like to thank you on behalf of the family for your professionalism and patience, before, during and since my Mothers funeral. It is the first time I've been involved in organising a funeral and knowing that you had everything in hand, was a great relief. However, it wasn't just that things were done but the way in which they were achieved, so calmly and with humanity. I was very impressed and would recommend you to anyone with enthusiasm. Thank you again.

Anne.

I just want to say thank you to you all for the wonderful experience I had with such a difficult process. You were all so lovely and the funeral was perfect. Many thanks again......

Sam x..........S5

All the staff I came in contact with at Eric Eyres, were genuine, very kind and helpful. I cannot rate them highly enough for the beautiful funeral they helped us plan for my mother. All of our wishes in every respect wasn't too much trouble. They guided us through the whole process, taking time to go and see the grave before hand ensuring everything went smoothly and advising without at anytime "selling". The respectfulness, appearance and attitude of ALL staff was wonderful and walking in front of the hearse as we left the funeral home was beautiful and my mother would have loved it. The business is run as a true vocation, with heartfelt dedication to assisting families in saying goodbye to their loved ones. The whole family is very, very grateful for helping us through a very difficult time. THANK YOU!!!

Dear Eyre Funeral Service
Many thanks for a very professional service for my aunt today. You certainly did her proud. My apologies for the mix up in the graveyard - I was not aware there were 2 graves and I must admit, my heart sank when I realised we were not going to the grave I expected to go too. But you were exactly right and I am sorry to give your people such a problem. But all was well that ended well. Again, so sorry.

Glenn..........S35

Thank you for taking care of my son and for helping me and my family......

From Julie, Kent and family.....S5

Dear Wayne, On behalf of myself, my Dad and brothers, I would like to say a heartfelt thank you for all that you and your wonderful team at Eric Eyre's have done for us as a family, regarding my Mum's funeral. Knowing you as a family friend was greatly comforting and I know it helped Paul. It was very kind of you to allow us to contact you even though you were on holiday. Also a big thank you to Sharon. She was caring and compassionate, nothing was too much trouble - like opening early on Friday morning so that my Mum's Sister and I could come and see my Mum before the funeral at 10am. The service was beautiful from beginning to end. Carol Keeton was amazing and really put across a true account of my Mum's life. Your attention to detail, making sure all ran smoothly with the seating arrangements, the placing of the roses on Mum's coffin was outstanding. I had a clear vision of how I wanted the day to run, bearing in mind my Mum at all times, I only ever wanted her approval of the choices made and I truly believe she would have.
Once again Wayne, thank you, we are eternally grateful......

with kind regards...Joanne and family ........S5
