Comments from the public

We have received the following feedback from members of the public:

"Just to let you know the interment of my Mother’s ashes in my Grandfather’s grave last Friday went smoothly and well. Your colleague Ryan was charming, considerate and very helpful!"

"The contractor who planted the tree was most helpful and accommodating. We were so pleased with everything, and my family would like to add their sincere thanks to you and your colleagues for making this possible."

"I just wanted to thank in particular your team who were very discrete and who waited very patiently whilst our small family group lingered after the ceremony prior to them attending to Dad’s grave."
