Robin Hood Crematorium | May 2020
Due to the difficult circumstances at the moment I was very nervous about the service as you could have no face to face meetings. Andrew was excellent at helping me in all aspects with telephone calls and E mails putting me at my ease. The service was lovely and I had lots of comments on how well it all went and how good Andrew conducted the service . I would recommend Andrew highly and the lovely presentation copy of the service is so thoughtful. Thank you Andrew for making the day go so well under the circumstances.
Thank you so much for your kind words.
It was my great privilege to be part of your sister's special farewell.
All the very best.

Under the very difficult situation of lock-down due to the virus, Andrew was very compassionate and understanding and made the ceremony very respectful for mom and for
the rest of the family and friends who could not attend.
I would not hesitate to recommend Andrew.
Many thanks Sandra
It was my privilege to be part of your mom's special farewell.

Prior to meeting Andrew,We were worried about putting together an order of service and preparing a speach for Andrew to read on the day of my dad's funeral. After our meeting with Andrew he put our minds at ease and guided us through every step and was there to answer questions we aksed when needed. Andrew helped along with other to make a very difficult day easier to get through . Thankyou very much Andrew i am very glad that you was part of My dad's day.
Thankyou From All Of The Evans Family

I cannot recommend Andrew enough!
He was simply perfect in delivering our tribute at our mom's funeral. She would have loved it! He delivered it in a very special way, as if he had known her himself.
He was friendly, helpful and very patient and understanding. He made what was a very difficult time for me and my sisters easier for us to deal with.
He helped us include all we wanted to within the service and tribute and was very patient when we made changes etc.
Thank you for helping us give our mom the send off that she so deserved. X

I am a very experienced and skilled celebrant. I am totally committed to ensuring families receive the very best service I can provide each and every time. No life is ordinary and unimportant and everybody deserves the funeral they want; the funeral that suits their life and their character.
I will visit the family at home to agree the content and running order of their chosen ceremony and to hear about the life of the loved one departed so I can compile a tribute to them. The tribute will be shared with the family in draft and edited until they are 100% satisfied with it and I will continue to liaise with the family until the day of the ceremony on any and all matters I can assist with.
I will get to the chosen crematorium or cemetery in good time on the day and ensure all is in order for the ceremony and offer whatever comfort and reassurance I can to the family.
All families receive a presentation copy of the ceremony in the post a few days after the funeral and I remain available to them for as long as they wish for ongoing support and contact.
