What our
customers say...

I was guided through the experience clearly and professionally and was especially helped by a caring and sensitive approach

Ann D.

When Mum passed, you were an absolute Godsend to me. You helped more than I could have expected

V. Daniels

Fr Martin recommended you, thank goodness he did, because I was so glad that you were around for us. Everything you did was so helpful, right down to recording the latitude and longitude of where we scattered his ashes at sea. Thank you.

Carol D

Richard was recommended by a friend. It was a sad and difficult time in my life after my husband died. Having met Richard, I immediately felt comfortable and relaxed. He was a good listener, easy to talk to and his manner was reassuring and helpful. I can't thank him enough for seeing us smoothly through this traumatic time.

Anne P.

I lost my husband in his early 50's. During this period in my life, I was in complete turmoil and organising a funeral was a huge mountain to climb. Richard took over, not in a pushy way, but with great empathy, kindness and discretion. The professionalism of both him and his team was exemplary, even down to organising the traffic so that my husband's biker friends could follow us to the funeral. From the bottom of my heart, I thank you.

S. Boorer

Richard and his team were very professional and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble. Everything from start to finish was absolutely perfect, the attention to details also superb including the timing of the drivers closing on both car doors, in my eyes, with that attention to detail I knew my Dad was in safe hands

Lee A.

I cannot recommend Richard enough for his compassion, professionalism and kind and thoughtful approach when dealing with myself and my family at such a difficult time. Nothing was too much bother for Richard.

J Kelly

We can't rate Westcountry Funeral Service high enough for their level of compassion and care during our difficult time in early July .... nothing was ever too much trouble. Excellent communication throughout the whole process and everything was done to a high professional standard. I would highly recommend Westcountry Funeral Service.

Tristan S.

From start to finish the professional service that we received was excellent. Guided at every stage to reduce the inevitable stress and emotion felt by all at this time. Nothing appeared to be too much trouble with a touch of humour thrown in to help break tensions and awkward moments. We would recommend this company to anyone who sadly is in need of this service.

Peter C.

Throughout the undertakers were superb, calm, stewarding agents of remarkable humanity... It was an incredible experience - a good disturbance of the heart.

Paul C

Richard took over and gave our father's funeral dignity. An excellent all round service that I have no hesitation in recommending.
