Had need for the services of Wilde's again recently. They looked after mum a few years ago so we entrusted them to look after dad a couple of weeks ago. The service from Wilde's is absolutely brilliant, they care, they are respectful, they are thorough with details and suggestions, and totally take away the angst associated with the organising after the loss of someone. They are a well run team, all on the same wavelength. We again felt in great hands again. We really can't thank and recommend them enough. Thank you. The Birch Family

Ian, Wendy we would like to say thank you so much for the service you provided to me and my family when my dad passed earlier in the month. You made such a hard process so much easier, you treated us with love and care at such an emotional time and you ensured all our dads last wishes where met. Myself, my mum and my sister will always be truly thankful for this. It gave us such comfort that dad was in your care with the respect you showed him on all our visits and on the day of his funeral. Jo was amazing in dealing with all our requests and meeting us on our visits, as was John who drove us on the day of the funeral and ensured we where all okay. Again thank you so much Ian and Wendy we could not have asked for anything more. Love from the Halsall Family - Linda, Wendy and Kerry xxx

Wendy, Ian, Lucy and team were wonderful following the recent death of our Mum. From the first phone call to the end of the funeral service, we were treated with kindness and respect and given guidance for each step of the process. Their attention to detail and patience made what is inevitably a sad and quite stressful time much easier. The service and arrangements were exactly what we, and Mum, wanted. We would recommend Wildes, without any hesitation. Thank you.

We have always used Wildes as our family funeral director's & we cannot praise them high enough. They recently took care of my late father-in-law. Ian, Wendy & all their lovely staff went above & beyond with their professionalism, care & compassion which they showed towards my father-in-law & ourselves, the little extra touches when settling a loved one in their care is absolutley magnificent. They genuinely do care from their hearts for the person in their care & for their grieving families, unlike 'big firms', Wildes is a family run funeral director's & the care & personal touch is exceptional. I knew without a doubt, 100%, we would be in good hands with Wildes & we we're, they knew exactly which was the right celebrant to undertake the funeral on the day - thank you Andrew Belshaw, you we're marvellous & gave John a wonderful service. He had the bestest send off just as he deserved & we have you all to thank for that. Thank you to you all dosn't seem enough but we are so very grateful to you. I would recommend your services 100%, I cannot fault you. 'Thank you' on behalf of the Winder family.

Ian, Wendy, Lucy & all the team. Thank you for all your wonderful service & support during this sad time. It was a great comfort to the family to know that mum was in the safest of hands. The flowers were beautiful. Please could you thank Pat for conducting a lovely service. It was perfect. This is the third time we have needed you. We wouldn't have wanted our loved ones with anyone else. Best Wishes.

Helen Yates & family
