Best Service around

Used West Country Funeral Services for my Mother in Law’s funeral from first call to the actual cremation Richard was a star nothing was too much trouble and his pleasant manner and knowledge was superb
He listened and advised but never once did we feel pressurised to make a decision until we were able
I would recommend Richard to anyone who requires a thoughtful and respectful approach if I could I would give him 6 stars
Thank you so much you made what was a difficult time so much easier

RIP my dear brother

my Dad had arranged my brothers funeral, as I was completely unhappy with what had planned he got his and I got mine . I turned to Elaine and Simon and in such short notice they had piece together the most beautiful service . They paid attention to finer detail , I was kept in the picture and always considered nothing was to much trouble . Elaine even manage to do a jaw dropping display of flowers and for my brothers coffin . On the day Simon was very contentive, guided us through everything , had very good mannerisms and respect , presented very way . From the bottom of my , I would highly recommend this company , for me to be so distraught because of what my dad had put in place and the little time Elaine and Simon had I’m out of words . I will always be great full no words can explain , thank you both and to everyone else , you made my brothers services , you made me extremely happy , and give that it was my brothers funeral I was attending I was really looking to going , thank you

A very personally tailored funeral.

I would like to say a huge thankyou from the bottom of my heart to Westcountry Funerals of Saltash for the most sincere and personal service they provided for my loved one. I lost him quite suddenly, and was in no fit state to think about funeral arrangements. One call to them and I was visited by Verity, who not only discussed in depth my thoughts and wishes about the service I wanted, but also showed empathy and comfort to me at that time. I was able to tailor the whole funeral to my budget, and personal needs at that time. Verity w The beautiful care and detail to my loved ones viewing was overwhelming, and I shall never forget . I have attended many funerals from the big companies in Plymouth, but this was the best ever. I have such peace of mind that all of his wishes were met, and I would highly recommend them to anyone who wants a personally arranged funeral . Thankyou so very much for everything.
