Dear Sue and team,
A quick note to thank you all so much for your help and support over the past few weeks with the sad loss of my dad. It was a tremendous support to me, my mum and brothers that you were there for us all in those trying weeks. We were all so pleased with the send off for dad and one we know he would have been so proud of; so much of it is down to you and the professionalism of your team. With sincere best wishes V.L.
Dear Karen, Barry and team,
A very special thank you is expressed to you in response to the great kindness and consideration that you demonstrated to the family following our sad loss.
We wish to convey our gratitude in the knowledge that she could not have been better cared for after her passing, and we have found great comfort in this.
your team also ensured that our every wish was achieved and we know that she would have been so proud of everything that was done for her, in particular the beautiful celebration service of her life.
Your wonderful kindness has touched our hearts and will remain with us always. Many thanks again, and may we wish each one of you the very best of health, happiness and success for the future. Kindest regards L.B.
Simply put, you were superb! From the moment that we met Megan she took care of all the arrangements, including the reception, reducing the load on me and my sister enormously.
This was done not only professionally but with real sympathy and care. On the day everything went smoothly mainly due to your organisation and attention to detail.
Personally, as a lay preacher I have conducted many funerals, supported by many good funeral directors, but none as good as Murray's
My sister and I and the rest of our family are very grateful. Yours sincerely B.K.
Dear Mrs Barke,
On behalf of my mother and the rest of the family I would like to thank you and your staff for the care and attention we have received from the moment we arrived at your premises to make arrangements for the funeral to the final collection of my father's ashes. We could not have asked for better advice and support in the circumstances. yours sincerely A.R.
To the staff at Murray's,
On behalf of the family may I offer enormous thanks to all who contributed to the funeral arrangements. Your totally professional and caring attention to detail was very much appreciated and we felt in experienced and capable hands.
Angela and Megan's work was sensitive and all our needs were attended to perfectly. The staff on the day did a fantastic job, we were not rushed or left without someone in attendance. Thank you again for giving my mother the funeral she would have wanted .
With warmest good wishes J.R.
I wanted to thank you and and all the team at Murray's for all the excellent care you gave my Dad. as you say on your website, organising the funeral of a loved one is extremely stressful. I know that I didn't have much of a hand in organising it but I know I speak on behalf of my brother, who did most of the work, when I say how grateful we are to you for everything that you did.
I was particularly touched that you emailed me to say my mum's and brother's visit to see Dad had gone so well. As you can imagine, living this far away doesn't make it easy and I was very concerned as to how my mother would cope. I was so reassured by your comments that as you know, I asked whether it would be possible for me to come and see him before the funeral.
I wish to extend my sincere thanks to Susan who looked after me when I visited my Dad, she was so caring and considerate and she greatly eased a painful experience for me. I am eternally grateful to her.
I would also like to thanks Barry for looking after us so well on the day of the funeral. He is a credit to your organisation. again, sincere thanks to all of you for making a stressful experience a little easier to bear. you all do an excellent job. Kind regards G.H.
I just wanted to thank you all at Murray's for making yesterday go so smoothly.
Everything you have done for us over the last couple of weeks has been absolutely brilliant and so professional, with kindness and such calmness.
It's never an easy time even when there has been a long happy life, living to a great age and finally coming to an end. You showed us such empathy and I just wanted to thank you all.
Barry was wonderful yesterday, meeting us outside the crematorium and explaining quietly exactly what was going to happen, and he was great right up until he left. Please could you give him our special thanks too? The service sheets looked lovely and we couldn't fault anything.
Thank you again so much- please pass on to everyone concerned Becky, and we shall certainly recommend you to any of our friends who need a funeral director.
