  • Your service was exemplary - thank you so much for looking after my mum as well as my family and I whilst we visited the chapel most days. We really appreciated the teams kind and professional service when visiting the chapel, as well as all the preparation and advice your team gave throughout. The funeral day went exactly to plan. Thank you

  • The service for my father's funeral was professionally managed throughout. The staff are very polite and efficient and sensitive to the family's feelings at this sad and stressful time.

    • Response from Francis Chappell Sons.

      I am pleased to hear that you found our staff to be professional and respectful. Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us on your online review.

  • Both my parents brought a pre paid funeral plan - best decision they made in this sad time, mainly it was their choice as they didn't want me, their only child to make these decisions in upsetting circumstances. I found that on telephoning Francis Chappell & Sons, I had the utmost sympathy, understanding, caring and professionalism going. Everything from the first call to after the funeral was perfectly organised to the T. The crematorium Kemnal Park was also helpful in everything, I felt that Francis Chappell & Sons and Kemnal Park helped give both my parents a good send off!

    • Response from Francis Chappell Sons.

      Thank you for your thoughtful and detailed review. It is incredibly helpful to other families in the same circumstances as yourself. I am happy that the pre-paid funeral plan made it easier to arrange the service for your parents and that we managed to make the day run as smoothly as possible for you.
