For well over 100 years the Wilde family name was synonymous with everything that was beneficial about dealing with an independent funeral director at your time of greatest need.

The support that we received from Lucy, Wendy and all the team at Ian Wilde’s was impeccable. They supported us to plan every aspect of my mum’s funeral and nothing was too much trouble. The service was exactly how we wanted it to be, every detail considered. Never having had to arrange a funeral before, we were supported at every step and the guidance we received was so helpful during a difficult time. The service provided to us by the team was dignified and also so compassionate and caring, right throughout the process and for this we are so very grateful.

Ian, Wendy and Lucy made the entire process simple, following our recent bereavement. Nothing was too much trouble and the Funeral and Service 100% matched what we asked for - a dignified, simple service, which was exactly what was requested. We are entirely happy and would, without doubt, recommend them to anyone.

Ian, Wendy and The Whole Team are quite simply outstanding! Their approach is attentive, sensitive and conscientious. It goes without saying that they deal, daily, with very difficult circumstances but they can be totally trusted to deliver a great service, a service which is appropriate in every way to those difficult circumstances. I, and my whole family, want to take this opportunity to thank you so much for looking after Margaret and for contributing in no small way to a perfect send off for a great lady. Many, many thanks to you all.

Unfortunately this is the second time in recent years that we have had to call on Ian Wilde's services. They have been impeccable both times, giving us an exemplary, respectful and fuss free service. We are also very grateful for their recommendation of David Scholes who officiated at the Crematorium and also helped us through a very difficult time. Many people who attended told us how well they thought he handled the service.

I can’t thank Ian Wilde, Wendy and colleagues enough for their outstanding support to my family throughout the whole process. They guided us through the service with care and compassion. I would also highly recommend Ian Wilde as they are an independent family run business.
