Everything was handled quickly and professionally. We were always able to speak to a person if needed and emails were answered promptly. The staff were friendly and accommodating. At a difficult time, Basic Funerals made it easier to deal with. Thank you.

We converse with the people of Peterborough everyday about how they would like to have their loved one’s funeral, or even their own prearranged funeral.
