From the moment we met, a week before and particularly on the day we felt wrapped around and cared for.
Nothing was left to chance and many people have said how much the service meant to them.
The card received today will be read to our oldest Grandson who has recently discovered the world of Winne the Pooh and I know will be helped by the thoughts expressed.

We felt we must let you know how grateful we are for the lovely service you did for us on Tuesday. It was beautifully put together and so meaningful in every way. We wish to thank you too, for your support and kindness during the run up to the day.
With very best wishes from Clive and the family.
Without a shadow of a doubt, one of the best funeral services I have ever been to.
Steve is very easy to work with. Great communication. Very approachable. Well considered presentation of memories. Lots of great ideas! Continuity throughout. Highly recommend!
Thank you so much for conducting the service and internment of my sister, Mary, last Saturday.
An open-air service is not always easy, even with a quiet location there is always some background noise, but you conducted the service, not only with quiet efficiency, but your words celebrating and giving thanks for Mary’s life were read with sensitivity and care.
You gave us confidence from our first meeting, with your thoughtful attention to detail, that you would provide an excellent service, which you did admirably.
Everyone praised the whole event and felt that you gave Mary, and the family, the closing event that she deserved and we needed.
Thank you again
Thank you for such a wonderful ceremony on Friday. Again and again, those who came said nothing could possibly have been more fitting for Mike. I take solace that it and the gathering in our garden afterwards were such a reflection of who he was and a true celebration of the impact his life has had upon the lives of those who knew him.
Now begins a new chapter in my life and I feel strongly the love and support of those around me. I will need it.
Thank you for being such an important part of this transition. Imogen and I so enjoyed your visit to us and the garden and your gentle facilation in the woodland gave us all the time and the space to say goodbye properly.
Now I can feel Mike's loss on another level.
All the very very best and thanks again.
We would like to extend a heartfelt thank you for the wonderful send off for Beryl. As a family we would like to thank you personally for your sensitivity and empathy that you showed to us all, at such a difficult time.
We particularly would like to thank you for the moving video picture tribute that you put together for us and would like to request a copy of this please?
Once again we send you our thanks
The Ford family
Thank you so much Steve, for the wonderful service that you did for our Son, the format and content was spot on, it was James down to a "T".
The card you sent afterwards was simply beautiful, we are going to have the verse framed so he will be with us forever!
Thank you again
David and Sheila.
Very grateful to you for your help and understanding in organising Mum's funeral. We appreciated your ideas and the way in which the service was carried out.
“Hi Steve…and Amy,
I felt I must drop you both a line to extend a huge thank you from me and the family for your care, sympathy and professionalism from start to finish and…I have to say, afterwards too – thank you for the beautiful card!
When we met you Steve, we made it clear that we wished to have a service that was not only uplifting, but a real celebration of mum's life! We were aware that this label had been given to many services we had been to before and that they had been everything but.
Mum’s service was a celebration of memories, music, dancing, photos, gestures, laughs and jokes. It was truly special, and we have you to thank for that. Your enthusiasm gave us the permission to celebrate mum in the way that she would have wished. Given her longevity, many will have expected something a little more traditional, but of course, that wouldn’t have been appropriate, as you well know.
I have no other words other than to say simply, thank you.”
When we celebrate the life of a loved one, we’re looking back at the life they lived. It’s also appropriate to look forward and give thanks that they are freed from the pains and worries of this world. And we also anticipate the privilege it will be to meet them again. It is in this spirit that a true celebration of life is formed. If we're going to use the word, 'celebrate' then it really must live up to it's name.
to acknowledge (a significant or joyous event) with a social gathering or activity.
What you did for us was quite exceptional! Beautifully orchestrated.
My wife and I have attended many funerals over the past few years at Bradwell Crematorium but your service was in a league of it's own. You deserve some recognition for the remarkable work you do. You have been so kind and helpful throughout the whole process too. We just can't thank you enough!
