Exemplary service

Myself and my family would like to sincerely thank Roy and his team for the fantastic way they managed my late husbands funeral. They were professional to the very end. Roy’s support throughout the whole time was invaluable and, I am sure, helped with the grieving process. Vanesssa, the celebrant, was sympathetic and very understanding and provided an exemplary service. Thanks again to everyone at Luckings.

Excellent Family run business

My heartfelt thanks goes out to all the staff at this fantastic family business, especially Roy. My mum sadly passed away during these unprecedented times and even though it was a very small service, the whole process was dealt with so professionally with dignity and respect but most of all with compassion and understanding which really helped during a difficult time. I can’t praise you all enough, everything was explained fully and all our requests were carried out beautifully. Thank you so much.

Excellent service.

The service I received when both my parents passed away within a month of each other was excellent, from the first phone call to the collection of the ashes. Darren dealt with everything with great efficiency & compassion. We went to M.Lucking & Sons on a recommendation & would have no hesitation in recommending them. Many thanks for all your help during such a difficult time.

Excellent care from a smaller family business.

Recently this family firm looked after our fathers' funeral arrangements. The care and attention was exceptional and I cannot fault their diligence throughout. Using a small business allowed a much more personal service and we were dealt with in both a compassionate but friendly manner which made a difficult time much easier.
