My late wife wanted a simple non-religious funeral, which Frances arranged and delivered to the highest standard. She was very professional but also very caring and supportive. I very much appreciated her advice and guidance and quickly realised I could trust her without reservation. I have no hesitation in recommending Opals to you.
Thank you so much for ensuring we had a beautiful and personal funeral for my mum. I thought we had to go with a cremation, even though that’s not what mum wanted. Frances explained that we had choices and need not be rushed. She gently guided us through the various options, and after a church service, mum was buried in a beautiful nature reserve. We can later plant a tree there in her memory. Everyone commented on how grateful they were that such a sad occasion was handled with dignity and sensitivity. Thank you again.
Thank you Frances for everything …………. Opals level of professionalism and care was incomparable and outstanding.
I just wanted to say thank you for all your support and for your efforts in making Mums funeral so good. You have been marvellous.
We were so pleased the way the funeral went. Thank you again for all your input into making the funeral so much a memorable occasion and so fitting for the man my brother was. We will recommend you whenever we can.
Thank you for everything you did for us to make the funeral run smoothly. I really appreciate the individual help that you gave us as a family.
I cannot recommend Frances enough. She really was wonderful and worked with us to give Dad the perfect send off. Cannot thank you enough for all your help and support.
After the death of my Mum, a difficult time for the family, Frances guided us through the funeral process with calmness and confidence which made the whole thing much easier on us all. She dealt with everything that we could not and spoke at Mums funeral as a celebrant which was received very well by all that attended. I would not hesitate to recommend Opals Funerals and Frances to anyone in the same situation, I cannot rate her service highly enough.
Dear Frances, Thank you so much for your calm, efficient and sympathetic handling of our sister Janet’s funeral. It was a great comfort to know that you were in tune with the way we wanted it to happen and were just there all the time, supporting us with thoughtful kindnesses. You were marvellous.
Thank you so much for your help and support today. You made it as perfect as we could have possibly asked.
Thanks so much for everything. The gathering was made all the more special with your way of working. Both Iain and I really appreciated it. Many thanks.
Thank you so much for making a difficult day run very smoothly. You were an enormous help and support to the whole family. You gave exactly the right encouragement and advice to allow me the confidence to get up to the lectern and deliver my address, for which I willl always be grateful. We will be delighted to recommend you.
Opals funeral service supported my family from the minute we made contact throughout all the organisation of the funeral at a very upsetting time. Frances took time to understand our family and what would work for us and helped us put together a perfect service for my father. We could not have asked for it to be any better, as we concentrated on the content, Frances sorted out all the details behind the scenes in a seamless manner. I would highly recommend her.
Thank you so much for everything you did for us. You understood what we wanted and set the tone. I cannot think of anything you can improve on. You are perfect in what you do. Grateful Thanks.
I just wanted to say thank you again for today and your help leading up to it. Everyone afterwards said how lovely you were and how personal the service was, so thank you.
Many thanks for your support and all your help. Everything went very well and it was a good send off for Paddy. I am very happy to recommend your services to others. Many thanks again for taking care of Paddy so respectfully.
A huge thank you for arranging Tom’s final day. The family were all very happy with the day and the service you provided.
In every way I thought your services were excellent and performed with care and respect. Thank you so much for your care and understanding.
Frances did an outstanding job in planning and delivering the tribute for our mother’s funeral. At our first meeting, she gently asked all the right questions to draw together a fitting tribute. I was very impressed that she replied to emails even late at night to incorporate multiple changes to the tribute and make sure we had the exact right version of the music and poems we requested. The result could not have been better. We received a lot of positive feedback from friends and relatives at the funeral who all agreed it was a moving service and that our mother was given a worthy farewell. My brother and I were very happy with how everything was handled. Thank you Frances !!
Thank you for making my Mums funeral go so smoothly. I will recommend you.
It was a lovely service and a beautiful farewell. Your help and guidance made a difficult time easier. Thank you so much for all your help and kind words.
I wanted to thank you for conducting such a lovely service for my Dad. It was everything we wanted and my Dad would have loved it.
Thank you Frances for the lovely service. Just what Mum would have wanted.
We were very pleased with everything. Thank you for all your help, it was the personal touch that we really appreciated at this very difficult time and so good to have someone (you) to help us all.
You were exceptionally accommodating and helpful.
Thank you for a lovely memorable service.
There was nothing to fault.
