To all the staff at East Durham Funeral Service for the professional care and compassion that was given to our dearest wife and mother - we thank you.

In what was a very difficult and traumatic period in our life's, it was reassuring to know of the outstanding care and attention given, in the most dignified way.

The piece of mind this gave us will remain with us forever.

We would like to offer Phil our personal thanks for his advice, guidance, professionalism and compassion every step of the way.

We would also like to offer our personal thanks to Aud for her sincerity and all the personal touches she provided- nothing was ever too much trouble.

We would like to say a fantastic 'THANK YOU' for a very professional and smooth running service. Obviously I have never had to organise such an occasion before and the help and respect you all showed my family really helped me to cope with the passing of my wonderful Mum. You truly helped her on her way with the upmost dignity. Once again, thank you

Sincere thanks for the caring and professional way you helped up through this sad time. My mam always priased the service you gave others and wanted the sam for herself. This praise was well and truely deserved.

Mrs Pouland family would like to thank you all for the funeral arrangements of the late Robert Henry Poulson. We were recommended to use East Durham Funeral service for your kindness and professionalism, this was met with a very high standard in service from start to finish.

Please would you say a big thank you for all involved
The Poulson Family

On behalf of my whole family I would just like to thank you both for the unintrusive handling of my mum's funerl. I imagined the funeral director would have arrived at the house almost bowing and scraping with embarrasment as to having to address the arrangements with my father, however Philip, you were warm and genuine and certainly made my father feel at ease when havingt o facethis unhappy occasion. There were no hard sales of better coffins, extra care etc., and teh arrangements were handled professionaly and discreetly. Having one person to organise everyhting, including catering, the vicar, and the notice in the newspapers, was a blessing - certainly not something a grieving family want to be doing. Audrey you were brilliant, constantly keeping me informed and updating me of any changes with the arrangements, and your honesty, you don't know what it meant to the whole family to have our mum dressed in her own clothes, she looked beautiful.

Thank you both again
