Would highly recommend. It was the crematorium that first suggested Head and Wheble. Bob managed my father’s cremation so informatively, caringly and smoothly that I didn’t hesitate to return when my mother passed 6 months later. Simon managed her service and cremation similarly and proved an excellent MC, adding a personal touch we all appreciated.
Nick Parker

Friendly, efficient, professional, attentive and cost effective and kind. I cannot recommend them highly enough. I first contacted Simon Head one week ago today and they are already caring for my brother and are carrying out a no nonsense direct cremation on Monday. I particularly like their attention to detail and professionalism
