I want to thank you formally for the excellent service you have provided from the moment I got in touch with E J Gumery & Son. Like many people you meet, I imagine, when we first met I was in a state of severe grief and shock following the sudden and unexpected death of my husband. You were calm and kind, and very quickly understood the kind of person he was and the type of service we wanted. You listened carefully, reassured me you could get the music I wanted to have, and used your expertise to make suggestions at various points. I was particularly impressed by the way you carefully considered who would be the best celebrant for us. Your suggestion was perfect – she had the manner, humour and intelligence I greatly needed at this dreadful time. Each time I called you after that with a long list of questions and worries you were patient and helpful and never made me feel as if my contact was a nuisance. The funeral was conducted impeccably from start to finish. Thank you so much for your excellent work at each stage of the process. It made something unbearable into something that I could actually get through.
Thanks for providing the funeral in a very professional way. I will be happy to recommend your services to my acquaintances in the future.  (October, 2017)
Thank you for the arrangements for my husband’s funeral. From the first point of contact until we were dropped off at the racecourse everything was dealt with efficiently, respectfully and with care.  This has been much appreciated.  So a big thank you to everyone at Gumery’s.  (April, 2018)
We just wanted to say a “huge” thank you for looking after us so well in organising Mum’s funeral. Thank you too for your compassion and sensitivity on the day.  It’s so important to get it right and you did!  (August, 2018)
Just a short note to thank you and your team for organising mother’s funeral. The experience and professionalism of your firm was evident from start to finish and whilst I appreciate that your Company undertake funerals on a daily basis, you made ‘our’ funeral very special.  Your calm, efficient organisation ensured that everything was taken care of, even things that we hadn’t thought about and your personal approach was very reassuring.  The funeral itself was directed with impeccable dignity and I was particularly impressed by the respectful professionalism of the pall bearers.  Not only did they do a wonderful job during the church service but also, at the crematorium, I found it very moving when they took up their station, at the four corners of the coffin prior to the commencement of the ceremony.  Please pass on our thanks to the whole team and a special thank you for your kindness and compassion.
My mother and I would like to thank you for all your help, advice and kindness shown to us, following the death of my father. You dealt with everything with such dignity and compassion throughout, from the first time you came to the house, guiding us through the actual arrangements and on the day of the funeral.  My mother appreciated the way you looked after her at such a difficult time, and I was so thankful  for your guidance.  You and all your staff were so kind and professional, and one of our relations commented on how smartly dressed you all were.  Your service was excellent.  Thank you once again.  (October, 2017)
On behalf of the family I would like to say a very big thank you for all the arrangements provided for the funeral of my late father. Everyone has treated us with respect, professionalism & kindness at all times and showed Dad dignity, tending to his body, making him look smart – as he always liked to be, when he could no longer do it for himself.  Every step of the way you have maintained such high standards, thank you sounds hardly adequate to show our appreciation for the care and compassion you have shown to us all.  Your help and reliability all the way through eased the process for us and made the day of the funeral somehow easier to bear.  (April, 2018)
