Thank you so much to you and the staff for ensuring the arrangements for the funeral resulted in a quiet, dignified service, so appropriate for a delightful little lady.

I appreciated so much the guidance and support you gave to me. Without anyone else to consult in it gave me confidence to know I could rely upon you.

Dear Sharon,


I just wanted to thank you for all your help organising mum’s funeral.  You were absolutely wonderful how you just took over, and dealt with everything that needed to be done.  Allaying all my worries and concerns at a very stressful and sad time.  Especially as we needed to get mum home from Surrey to North Shields. With your support we were able to celebrate the life of a beautiful person and give her what she wished for.


I am eternally grateful to you.


A HUGE thank you and best wishes.

I just wanted to say thank you for making a difficult process, as easy as possible.

Both myself and Bob’s family appreciated the care you took with the arrangements.

The service and burial were how I wanted and I hope Bob would have approved. This provided me with much comfort on the saddest of days.

Thank you for all your help, and please thank all the others at Turnbulls that helped.

End of Testimonial

Death be not proud, though some have called thee Mighty and dreadfull, for, thou art not so, For, those, whom thou think'st, thou dost overthrow, Die not, poore death, nor yet canst thou kill me.
