  • Excellent service. Michelle was compassionate, helpful, very knowledgeable and guided the family through the process explaining what was required and what our options were. She also introduced us to an excellent celebrant who was in regular contact with the family on a regular basis. On the day of the funeral the cars arrived exactly on time, the funeral director and staff were very professional and thanks to everyone involved a difficult day was made that much more easy to bear.

  • My initial phone call to Francis Chappell & Sons was an extremely difficult one and one I hadn’t envisaged making. Sandra handle the call with such empathy, taking enough information while keeping the call as short as possible. From the initial phone call to the actual day of mum’s funeral, Francis Chappell & Sons were amazing. Jenny and Alan were fantastic at organising everything, keeping us informed every step of the way, checking everything was okay on a regular basis. Mum had a beautiful send off and one that she deserved ❤️ Couldn’t recommend Francis Chappell & Sons enough, thank you!

    • Response from Francis Chappell Sons.

      It is comforting to know that Sandra, Alan, Jenny and the rest of the team were there to support you through this time and relieve some of the pressure through guidance and support. It has been a privilege to look after your Mother.
