I wanted to say how absolutely wonderful you were at organising my mum's funeral on July 2nd. We could not have gone through it all without your calm, professional and experienced support. You were amazing leading up to the day as well as at the church and crematorium. You do such a wonderful job at a time when people are preoccupied with grief and unable to think straight. Thank you so very very much.
Thank you for all the help you gave to the family at the time of their bereavement and especially on the day of her funeral. When someone dies peacefully and painlessly at the age of 97 it is not really a sad occasion, but a time to celebrate a long life well lived. Nevertheless it is a confusing and uncertain time, especially with current restrictions. So to have you guide us through all of the necessary bureaucracy and to do it with compassion and professionalism was well appreciated by all the family. We shared the flowers and it has given us a lovely taste of spring in the house, and helped to bring back lots of memories of my mother's beautiful garden.
I am writing to thank you and your team very much for arranging my Aunt's funeral last week. It is daunting when you have never had to make arrangements like this before, but you personally made it very straightforward and easy for me. The family were very pleased with the service and the way it was managed and I am very grateful to you all. I felt that it was a celebration of her life and a lovely send off for her after a long and full life. Despite the pandemic it all went smoothly without any hitches.

Did you know that the only dogs permitted in Haycombe cemetery are assistance dogs (or those dogs visiting just the Pet Section)? You may well ask why, as Haycombe would seem like a lovely area to exercise a dog.
The cemetery is a precious place to those who have placed their loved ones in our care, and the presence of dogs, innocently doing what dogs do, can be a source of distress. Dogs can’t be expected to understand cemetery etiquette so we ask owners to take them to an environment suited to the freedoms they require.
Our grounds staff are working hard to cut the grass at the moment, but the presence of dog faeces is ever-increasing, and often not discovered until impacted by the strimmer. This creates a real hygiene risk to staff. Please leave dogs at home when you visit. It would be much appreciated.
