Reviews of Alfred English & Sons Funeral Directors

  • Dawn was extremely helpful in providing us with advice and guiding us through the arrangements for my Uncle’s funeral. She really made what was a stressful time for us a lot easier and is an absolute credit to her profession. In addition, the private chapel at Alfred English was perfect to give my Uncle a lovely send-off and Dawn’s colleague who oversaw the day could not have been more helpful.
