Reviews: W English & Son Funeral Directors, South Woodford

    • Response from W. English & Sons

      Thank you for highlighting a member of our team who has made a difference to your personal experience. All feedback is greatly appreciated.

  • The support I received from the staff of W English & Son was excellent especially Rochelle the funeral organiser. I was treated with compassion, care and understanding at all times and a very difficult time in my life was made so much easier. I cannot recommend this funeral directors highly enough

    • Response from W. English & Sons

      We appreciate you leaving a review online for your experience with W English & Son Funeral Directors. I am pleased we were able to help make things easier for you at such a difficult time.

  • Rochelle was extremely helpful and informative. She responded professionally and promptly to all my queries. Everything was done quickly and with no fuss. The only hiccup was that the three roses should have been placed in mums coffin but were delivered on the day of the funeral which was them too late, so we placed them on top of the coffin instead. The celebrant Steve was brilliant and read the family tribute as if he personally knew mum. He made a sad day manageable.

  • All staff were very professional from start to finish at a very difficult and sensitive time for my sister and I. Rochelle was comforting and offered a great deal of support; Amy and her colleagues led the service on the day with dignity, professionalism and considered every aspect required. Would definitely recommend. Jenni and Terry
