Testimonials

We would like to thank you for the wonderful service you provided for our Mother. From the very first phone call to Ian Wilde it was clear, from that point on, everything would be taken care of in a gentle, efficient and compassionate way. It took some of the pressure off so we could focus on other things that mattered. Janet’s advice was intuitive, knowing when to step in, when to step back, when we might need some help, even when we might want to smile, and this was very reassuring to us. You helped to guide us through a painful time and we can reflect back on a beautiful service, knowing our Mum would have appreciated the help you gave us and the dignity with which you looked after her. Thank you.

Dear Ian and Wendy,
I am writing this message to let you know how much we appreciated the work you put into the funeral of my sister.

I am aged 67 years now so have been to many funerals during my lifetime. But the funeral of Mary was absolutely wonderful. It was thoughtful and meaningful, and prayerful. Pat was lovely speaking from the scriptures.

Ian and Wendy deserve much credit for their expertise and kindness.

We all felt very comfortable throughout. There were 10 guests and each one of us felt proud and relieved to have taken part in a most lovely service. The floral arrangement was magnificent and is still fresh today.

After this amazing experience we retreated to the Laurels where everyone agreed what an up – lifting experience we had.
Thank you again Ian and Wendy.

Yours sincerely

Anne and David

Dear Ian and Wendy
Your kindness and understanding in what was a traumatic time for us, was so helpful. You went far and beyond your role to ensure our day for our son Luke was perfect. Anytime day or night you were there for us. We cannot thank you enough as Luke’s final journey was special and it was all down to yourselves.
Ian Wilde Independent Funeral Directors have given us so much peace, as all your staff were so polite and understanding.
Martin, your funeral operative, whose understanding and help gave us strength.
All of the staff made our final time with our little boy so much easier as we knew you would take care of everything.
We cannot thank you enough.

“Dear Ian and Wendy,

I am writing to say a huge thank you for the wonderful service you provided to our family. We all go through our lives engaging the services of a wide variety of professionals-lawyers, accountants, plumbers, mechanics…it is a long list. I can say without hesitation that in my 54 years I have never had such an exceptional service from any individual or company. From the moment I called you when dad died to the moment the funeral service ended everything you did, and the way you did it, was just outstanding.

I hope you enjoy the enclosed book. Once again many, many thanks.”
