Customer reviews

Here is a small selection of the kind words we have received from families we have conducted funeral services for.

I would have no hesitation in recommending the services of R. Locke and Son. I cannot thank all of the team enough for their professionalism, compassion and gentle direction following the death of my partner. Knowing that he would be respectfully cared for, and that I would be guided throughout the whole process of planning a fitting funeral service made the situation just so much easier. No request, question or concern was ever too much – always answered promptly and skilfully by any member of the team. The service itself was beautifully conducted with attention to detail and empathetic respect. You are amazing people. Thank you.

The professionalism and respect this company has towards its clients going through such terrible grief is exemplary. I cannot thank George and Bruce enough for the handling of my sister's funeral. The service was so beautiful and moving and my sister was treated with the utmost respect. I can't recommend this family run company highly enough. Many, many thanks.

R Locke & Son were extremely sensitive, helpful and professional making the whole process of arranging a funeral a relatively easy process even during lockdown. Everything was explained and Colin was available at any time if there were any questions or changes needed. Wonderful service.

Family run funeral directors run by George Locke. They provided an excellent, sympathetic and very professional service for two loved ones who departed just a week apart. Highly recommended at a time of huge grief and difficulty.

Compassion and excellence throughout. From the very first phone call, I knew immediately that we were in safe hands. The respect and courtesy shown was exemplary and really helped to ease our own grief and heartbreak. I had limited knowledge of what I needed to do and when but I need not have worried at all, as both George and Bruce, and the rest of the team, were exemplary. We received all the advice and information we needed to prepare for the best funeral service possible.  I would wholeheartedly recommend this exceptional company and can now see why my husband (who was a Vicar himself) chose R. Locke and Son to be his own undertakers for caring for him at the time of his death and beyond.
