  • I wanted to send you a quick email to say to you both and the whole team at Woodland a VERY BIG thank you for everything you all did for Mum and for us for Mum’s funeral on Monday.

    I knew that I wanted her funeral at Woodlands from the time that Mum died, given my experience as a guest at two other funerals I attended at Woodlands and as soon as Paul and Sue came to see you they both knew it was right for Mum.

    From the minute I made the first phone call you have all treated us with kindness, respect and laughter, which as you may have gathered plays a great part in all our families’ lives and personalities.

    The flowers were beautiful and I have spoken to Helen today to thank her.

    I wanted to pass on my particular thanks to all the team, from the pall bearers to the reception staff who have all been fantastic and everyone else behind the scenes who we didn’t speak to.

    The atmosphere at Woodlands is very special and I am especially grateful that you meant it when you said that nothing was too much trouble and you would accommodate our wishes.
