I cannot recommend OPALS Funerals more highly. Frances could not have done more for us as a family while we were planning the funeral of my Uncle.

She was calm, understanding, took everything we wanted into consideration and made astute, thoughtful suggestions. I can honestly say that I can’t imagine a better service than provided by OPALS Funerals.

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.
