An Excellent Professional and Compassionate Service

My family and I are very grateful to Mr Protheroe for the support given to us whilst arranging my mother in law's funeral. Throughout there was calm advice, thorough communication and high professional standards and integrity. I recommend DJ Protheroe & Sons without reservation.

Excellent service

From start to finish an excellent all round service. Very professional and couldn't have more thoughtful or caring. Price was very good as well. Would definitely recommend and will most definitely use for other family funerals although hopefully not for a good while yet.

On behalf of myself and my family I would highly recommend Robert Protheroe. From the minute he arrived at my home he provided us with all the information we needed without any hesitation. Even the most awkward of questions he made easy for us, he seemed to know what I was about to ask before I could speak. When I visited the funeral home the time was to suit myself not them. There were lots of tears and laughter, but there was not a minute that I felt alone. Robert and his staff have shown the utmost respect during our loss. Everything on the day of the funeral went so smooth it was all I could have asked for and more. From the bottom of my heart I say thank you.
