Customer feedback

"Whilst browsing the web I have come across your page on the Nottingham Funeral. My mother passed away last November and I contacted W Bamford and arranged 'the Nottingham Funeral' I would just like to put on record, albeit belatedly, that the service I got was excellent, the staff were very professional and attentive, and the funeral couldn't have been more dignified if I had paid thousands of pounds. A great service which really should be advertised more, (local press, local radio etc) I'm sure lots of elderly people worry about funeral expenses and if they were aware that this service was available it would allay their worries. Once again, many thanks for an excellent service." Mr B.A. of Nottingham
