Where do I start, from the first contact I felt that I was in good hands. This was the first funeral I’ve ever had to arrange, and on my own, but I felt that the whole family team at Caldecotts were supporting me right from the start. They guided me through everything with great sensitivity. Amazing communication and nothing left to chance. On the day I felt well supported and also in no doubt that the day would go smoothly, leaving me to remember dad and focus on remembering him. I can highly recommend their service. Thank you to the whole team.

“The epitome of professionalism, care and sensitivity”

“From the first phone contact to arrange my mother’s funeral, initially with Tim whilst Stephen was on holiday, and then with Stephen, Caldecott & Sons were the epitome of professionalism, care and sensitivity and handled all the arrangements very efficiently indeed. There was total support and communication throughout a very difficult time, and huge help with the liaison with the cemetery for a burial. I cannot recommend their service highly enough.”

All along they showed us kindness and support

From the first meeting with Stephen Caldecott we were put at ease. Stephen with his experience was able to suggest things that worked so well on the day but also were encouraged to be fully involved with the planning. All along they showed us kindness and support and were so professional. We would recommend them to friends.



I was having a bit of a bad time and needed some personalised and friendly help.
Caldecotts were there for me when I needed them the most and were more than happy to handle everything regarding the funeral for me.
I couldn’t thank them enough for what they’ve done for myself and my family and I highly recommend their courteous services to everyone.


Professionalism and sensitivity

First and foremost I should like to thank you and your staff on the day for planning everything and then completing the job with such professionalism and sensitivity. I can’t praise the guys highly enough – they advised us, kept an eye on the clock for us, and dealt with any queries we had. Basically they took a lot of the worry away from us on what was always going to be a difficult and upsetting day, and I really can’t praise them enough!…….

Many thanks again for providing us with such a fantastic service.
