To Darren, Natalie, Helen and all at Hancocks. Thank you so much for all your help and guidance in arranging Matt`s funeral. We could not have wished for a more personal approach. Matt looked at peace when we saw him on Monday. The way he held the letters was especially touching. So many people commented on such a beautiful funeral service for such a special young man, who was taken from us far too soon. So, once again, thank you all.

My wife and I would like to thank you all for the kind and considerate way you handled the funeral arrangements for our Grandaughter, Nancy Perkin, just before Christmas. All aspects were carried out in a very professional and caring manner with nothing too much trouble. The burial was made as easy as possible by caring pall bearers.
