Amanda combined wholehearted caring with extreme efficiency to give my father a deeply moving Celebration of Life service. She did the same a few years ago for my mother. Outstanding service every single step of the way.

I recommend Amanda without reservation for anyone who wants an amazing funeral director with a big heart to take care of their loved ones.

I also recommend making contact BEFORE you need these services, so that you can connect with Amanda and the team and anticipate their support. It makes things much easier when the time comes.

Deeply grateful.

Evelyn’s funerals have been amazing since my nan passed away. They have been so supportive and caring looking after our loved one before the funeral, going above and beyond for our family. We are so grateful. They made our time that bit easier. Helping us to give our nan/mum/wife the best send off we could. We can’t thank you enough Amanda, Lucy and the team.

Evelyn’s funerals are outstanding and go above and beyond.
Amanda and Adrian made my grandads funeral so special, we struggled to get a standard bearer ourselves, however these tremendous individuals perseverance paid off and managed to book one for attendance.
They even went above and beyond and had the Union Jack flag draped across my grandads coffin due to him being ex-military service.

I cannot thank you enough, I have used Evelyn’s funerals twice now and although I do hope I do not have to use them again anytime soon, I will always 100% recommend

  • Absolutely spectacular service. We knew it was a sign from are dearly departed mum that we should contact Evelyn's funerals (my daughter's name is Evelyn and we grew up in Heatherside) and we made the best choice. Everything was handled with such care by Amanda and team. We couldn't have coped without you. Thank you for giving my mum the funeral she deserved.

    Amanda and her team supported us all of the way through preparing for our mum's funeral, not only looking after our mum but our family. Mum's send off was perfect. Professionally handled but warm and comforting. We cannot thank Amanda and her team enough

    If I could give more than 5* I would. I have lost my partner and my son has lost his dad Den to early. I can not express enough how caring and compassionate Lucie and Amanda have been. They have been there for us from the day I contacted them, nothing was to much to help us at this heart breaking time. They have taken away the stress at this overwhelming time. They helped us to give Den, the best send off he deserved. Thank you so much for being with us every step of the way.

    At this bewildering and distressing time, we found everyone at Evelyn's Funerals professional, kind and compassionate. We were kept informed every step of the way and nothing was too much trouble. We highly recommend Evelyn's Funerals and want to thank them for guiding us through this difficult time.

  • I cannot speak highly enough of the service I received from Amanda and her team. From my initial inquiry, which was dealt with in a most compassionate and professional way to our final meeting at the funeral itself, I felt that I was in safe hands. Amanda made it clear from the beginning that the arrangements could be completely tailored to my requirements, i.e. as simple or elaborate as I wanted. She went through all the costs that were involved and arranged for me to meet Fiona who I was very happy to have as the celebrant conducting the service. She also put me in touch with a florist and a lady who produced the order of service booklets, both of which did a lovely job.

    A heartfelt thanks for your expert and sensitive handling of our Mothers' care and cremation earlier this year. Evelyn's Funerals' support and advice throughout the whole process and conduct during the service was dignified and gracious. I highly recommend this company.

    From the first time we contacted Evelyn Funeral directors regarding the passing of our dad, we had the best service we could possibly ask for! Our well-being, as a family was priority. Their team of funeral specialists were there every step of the way and gave our dad the best ‘send off’ as possible! They were tentative and compassionate and nothing was too much trouble for them. They recommended our Celebrant, Aimee, who was excellent and our Florist, Steph who designed our flowers to better than we could wish for! I would highly recommend their services and would definitely use them if required in the future. Thank you so much for giving us the best service possible!

    It would very hard to exaggerate the quality of the personal service received. From initial contact before the expected decease, sympathetic and dignified removal of the deceased from the house, straightforward presentation of options for the funeral, no attempt at selling “add ones” quite the contrary in fact, “do you really want or need” featured quite a lot. However, all “bells and whistles” there if you want them . Professional advice freely given from their experience. Introduction to local florist and printer for order of service - both small businesses at reasonable cost who provided excellent service and liaised with the undertaker to ensure a coordinated service. Lots of contact in the run up to the funeral - nothing was too much trouble for Amanda and the team who are clearly well used to dealing with stressed individuals. We used them on recommendation and were very pleased. The service provided was exactly what we needed and wanted.

  • Amanda dealt with the funeral of my father compassionately and looked after all the arrangements therefore allowing my sister and I to deal with other family matters. I would have no hesitation in recommending their services

    Thank you to Amanda and Lucie for looking after our dad so well and showing so much kindness and respect to him and all of us over the last few weeks. From our initial call right up to the funeral, nothing was too much trouble and all the arrangements were expertly looked after for us. Thank you so much for making such a sad occasion much more bearable for me and my brother.

    Having never had to deal with a funeral before, when we unexpectedly lost a family member we didn't really know which way to turn. I visited Evelyn's as they were local to us and quite literally from the moment I walked through the door right the way through to leaving the crematorium Amanda and her team have been genuinely outstanding. The support and service couldn't have been any better. Warmest thanks Amanda, Lucy and team

    Warm, comforting service. They handled my stepfather's funeral perfectly, my Mum was walked through it all with great compassion and they did everything. They could not have done better. Thank you.

  • We have recently used Evelyn's Funeral Services for my father-in-law and they have been great. Professional, efficient, caring, and supportive. My wife and I cannot rate them highly enough.

    At a very difficult time with my mother passing unexpectedly of Covid 19, Evelyn's Funerals were a pleasure to deal with. I dealt with Amanda throughout, she was sincere and most of all overly informative which was immensely helpful as I was unsure of what to do in the current climate. I cannot rate dealing with her high enough and wish to use this platform to publicly thank her.

    Our experience with Amanda Pink of Evelyn's Funerals was so empathetic, professional and supportive. As a result there were no worries for me with any of the arrangements and the day was a genuine and intimate celebration of my mother's life. You are in trusted hands with Amanda, complete clarity and support for whatever arrangements you wish to make.

  • I have taken my time to write this review since my mother died on 2nd September and had her funeral 29th September as it is very important to get the words right. We met Amanda a short time before Mum died and she helped us put in place all the arrangements. She took care of Mum when she passed and she took care of us all the time. Nothing was too much trouble, we could contact her day or night, however small the worry. She was kindness and support personified throughout. She and her team were professional throughout, but with a very human touch. I will never forget her and am so extremely grateful. I cannot recommend her and her team highly enough.

    Amanda, her sister and all the team have been the most wonderful support since mum, Janie Thomson, died on 2 September. A friend had recommended Amanda and she has made a difficult process so much easier and I will be eternally grateful for her kindness, empathy, professionalism, attention to every little detail, being constantly available whenever we needed. When she says you can ring any time, she really does mean it. I felt total confidence in every arrangement Amanda made for us. She and her team were so discreetly supportive before, during and after the funeral. I could not have wished for a more perfect person to “take us all under her wing”. Amanda, and the service she provides, are exceptional and I would think rather unique. I will never forget, and will always be full of thanks, that you were the person to look after mum, and us, through this time. I highly recommend Evelyn’s Funerals – totally professional, utmost care.
