My mum sadly passed away suddenly and Chales Stephens funeral directors were so brilliant. Tom and Richard were so helpful and respectful, and everything was so fast. Any questions we had were promptly answered, and everyone there was so caring, we truly felt looked after by everyone during this hard time. Thank you everyone at Charles Stephens!!
I can not speak highly enough of the service and the attention to detail and the way I was was looked after from start to finish was above and beyond. They made one of the hardest days of my life saying goodbye to my mum respectful comforting and a fitting tribute to a lady who had been on this earth for 96yrs thank you so much
Tom and Yvonne are a credit to Charles Stephens. The standard of service they provided from beginning to end was outstanding. Tom and the team delivered all aspects of care for our family with professionalism and integrity, I could not of wished for better care for my dad! Thank you John and Emma Cunningham.
Words can’t say how good this service is.Tom is a credit to the company and is very professional while also showing great empathy.Thanks so much for taking care of my dad
Professional, reliable, friendly and sensitive service. All the staff who helped me and my family through this difficult time were so kind and caring especially Tom. Thank you
I have nothing but praise for Charles Stephen’s funeral services. Mark at the Neston branch organised my husbands funeral with such efficiency and professionalism and made the process so much easier to bear.Gavin who was the organiser on the day itself was so lovely and respectful . It was a very large funeral and he handled the whole event with compassion and empathy under what must have been very testing circumstances for him.Lastly we would like to thank Pippa at the chapel of rest who looked after Roy with such care and respect. The chapel of rest was such a warm and peaceful environment . Thankyou to all all concerned.
Our contact with Charles Stephens throughout was Richard Brady, who is a pleasant, kind Funeral Director and great ambassador for the Company. He respected our wishes and made Mary's funeral a most dignified occasion.Richard and his staff were all dressed immaculately, friendly and put our family at ease. The hearse gleamed in the sunlight and the flowers were spectacular on the wicker casket.In our opinion, having employed them on a number of occasions within the family, Charles Stephens are the outstanding Funeral Directors in the area and we thank them most warmly.
I can’t speak highly enough of the service we received from Charles Stephens. Kind and professional. We were in very good hands at a difficult time.
I would highly recommend Charles Stephens Funeral Directors Heswall. The funeral that they arranged for my mother was lovely and everything worked like clockwork. Diane was particularly efficient in answering my emails promptly and made us feel very confident that we were in the hands of an experienced professional.
I can't thank Charles Stephens enough for looking after my late sister Diane. Extremely caring and professional service at all times. Phil made sure everything ran smoothly up to and during the funeral service. Thank you from me and all my family and friends. Colin
I would like to say how how caring Charles Stephens were looking after my beautiful loving partner Sandra Coster. Tom Henderson, Yvonne, Paula, Paige and Mel and all other members of staff who treated Sandra with love kindness and respect. I honestly would say the care you took of her was totally wonderful. We again would like to thank you all from the bottom of our heartsRob, Alison, Jennifer, Mike and Mavis.
It is now approaching 3 years since I lost my dearly loved Mum. All the staff involved were very knowledgeable, kind, understanding and professional but after very recently having another family funeral in another part of the country, I want to say a VERY special thank you to the girls who had the final task of laying her body out.The care and attention to detail in making her look so pretty and peaceful was second to none. Thank you so very much “ to the girls behind the scenes “. Deborah Williams.
We would like to thank everyone at Charles Stephens for their professional service following my mother's passing. Tom Henderson guided us sympathetically and carefully through all the necessary stages which was made more tricky as the funeral had to be mostly organised over the phone.
We recently had Charles Stephens manage my mother in law’s funeral. We were fortunate to have Jane Scott to organise everything for us. She has all of the qualities that one could wish for in such a situation. She was professional, kind, empathetic yet practical and efficient too which is just what we needed. She made what could have been a sad and difficult day a very positive and uplifting one. Thank you Jane, you are superb at your job and a credit to Charles Stephens.
Very professional service, each and every member of staff show empathy & compassion and much understanding. Extremely supportive & nothing is a bother, high standards of care & dignity given. Kim is a absolute treasure.
On behalf of all my family & friends I wish to thank Anna Campbell Lea & Tom for their overwhelming sensitivity, kindness and elegance that they showed whilst arranging our Mum's direct cremation.Everything from Anna's choice of beautiful flowers and perfect arrangements and the warm, elegant and respectful manner that Tom was with my Mum throughout her cremation gave our family immense comfort.Eternal thanks to all of your staff for their excellent serviceLorraine Hughes.
