Dear Annabel, Thank you so much for arranging the funeral of my husband, Graham Whitehead. It went so smoothly because of your helpfulness and guidance and took a lot off our minds. Thank you also for making the flowers into ounces, 2 of which I took to the Springfield court Home and 1 I kept. Yours very sincerely, Kathleen Whitehead.

A Million thanks doesn't seem quite enough. We as a family can't thank you enough for all the care and attention you gave to Dave and to us at the most difficult time of our lives. Losing Dave has been heart breaking but you and your team have guided us through and carried us. From beginning to end you have been compassionate and caring and will never forget your unwavering support at the most difficult time of our lives. Lisa, and the wonderful team at MLS, thank you for caring for Dave. Pat & all my family.

Hi Sally Ann, I just wanted to express our sincere THANKS ! for your amazing dedication into making the day especially easy for our family last Friday. Everything went according to the meticulous planning and we are very very pleased. We have received lots of lovely comments regarding the service and how well it ran. We would like to have a USB copy of the funeral service, can this be arranged please? Thanks again Sally Ann, you truly are an amazing asset to the family business and we are very thankful to have had you take lead on our arrangements. We knew it had to MLS for us based on recommendations, especially since MLS share the same as my mums initials too (LMS) Best regards, Anthony Stephenson

Hi Lisa. Hi family. Hope you're all well this morning. I just wanted to drop you all a note to say how fortunate, grateful, and thankful we are as a family for your love, support and consideration over the last month. I could write you a note about your professionalism, and how good you are at your job (tremendous by the way) but I just want to focus on your kindness and how compassionate you have been to mum and the family. Simply put you have made our lives easier. Lisa in particular, I just want to give you a massive hug everytime I see you. You have this warmth that is so lovely and so genuine. Mum has been so appreciative of everything you've chosen to say to her and nothing has been too much trouble for you. As a team you are absolutely first class and I'm so pleased Dave was in your company. He was so loved. Thank you for making a difficult day a brilliant one. Love James

Dear Lisa & Sally, Thanks for all your help during these very trying times and I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone requiring your services in the future. Yours sincerely, Mr. F. Johnson.

by F. Johnson ★★★★★

May I say a huge and heartfelt thanks to Sally and the team at MLS following the passing of my beloved dad this September (2022). Living abroad added to our complications, however nothing was too much trouble and Sally was available every time I contacted, by phone or email and the whole end to end process was slick, professional and perfection. From initial call, all legal processes, service preperation and appointing of Celebrant (huge thanks to Tony Packwood) - mostly conducted by email and PDF paperwork - I was led through everything and no stone was left unturned. Having flown over for the service, I could not have wished for a better final journey for my dad. So thanks again Sally, and all MSL - you have a special place in my heart forever.

Dear Team, Can I thank you for my Mothers Funeral yesterday. The service was excellent and your work was of the highest standard. My Brother, and I agree that, we did as much as we could and the whole episode was handled as good as we could have hoped. "The casket for Mum was striking, and beautiful!"- "A lovely service, Your Mum would be Proud and delighted with the arrangements!" "A lovely peaceful setting for your Mums Funeral!"- "A really well put together service!" "You couldn't have done it better, that was spot on!" These were some of the comments from my family, even those who watched from outside. My Brother and I, had the responsibility to arrange and deliver the service, but your firm must take a lot of credit for the actual funeral and all the assistance and advice you gave us. I would recommend your services to all, your reputation, and your locality prompted us to approach your Business, and you certainly delivered. I wish Mum could have seen it! Family are now watching the service online, and have been very complimentary in their responses. All are worries proved unfounded, and we are also at peace now, That is down to your performance,Thank you to all your Team. Yours Sincerely, Mark Thomas.

RE: Thomas William Clegg. Dear Lisa and all the tram at MLS, On behalf of all the family, I write to thank-you for all you did to make our farewell to Dad, all we wanted it to be. From our very first meeting with you, we were put at ease and we had the assurance that you had everything under control and yet, at the same time, we felt very involved throughout the whole process. I particularly want to thank you for making it possible to have Dad at home on the eve of his Funeral: it was very special for all sorts of reasons. With everything being done in such a dignified and professional manner but also, with avery personal touch, you have left us feeling that our goodbye to Dad could not have been more fitting. We are so very grateful - thank-you. Elizabeth.
