Compassionate and professional

I cannot speak too highly of this firm and the people I dealt with:
* for their compassion and understanding on the night of my husband’s sudden death and throughput the weeks up to his funeral.
* for the meticulous way they carried out all my wishes.
* for providing him with a funeral that was dignified, moving and hugely comforting.
Thank you.

Excellent service, competitive price and quality experience during a difficult time

Jane, Tony and the entire team were amazing following my sister’s passing. Without them, I think we would have been completely lost at an awfully difficult time.
I was kept up to date with all the details and the level of service was exceptional from as soon as the team was appointed. The funeral itself was a lovely service and I could not recommend them more.
Should I need a funeral director in the future, I would most certainly appoint Alan Ransom and his team. Thank you so very much for all the help and support during an awful time, it was appreciated so very much!

Compassionate, caring and perfectly organised

very grateful to Mr Ranson and Jane King. Organising my father's funeral was made so much easier, unobtrusive advice and support and very sensitive and respectful. On the day everything went so smoothly which was a great comfort in these difficult times. We also felt that the charges were very reasonable

Superb personal attention

Ranson's recently organised the funeral service for our elderly uncle and every aspect of their service was outstanding, from organisation before the service and on the actual day. They delivered exactly what we requested - a dignified, simple but sincere ceremony which was appreciated by all; especially his widow. Thank you so much; a difficult day was made quite uplifting.

Very caring people on my sad day.

Very professional and caring service, they took care of everything after loosing my wife helped me with every step and kept me well informed . Attention to detail, they showed my wife all the dignity and respect she deserved. All the staff were very polite and professional, nothing was a problem if I had a question they had an answer, they took the strain off me. Not the best day for me but they made if so much easier. A well run family business. Thank you
