Hello Philip,


Thank you for the lovely service you delivered for our mum, Ethel May Dziedziela on 4th November at Vinters Park Crematorium.  You made her send-off very special for all of us. 

 The day was perfect and everything was lovely, for sure you have a way to reach people and you certainly touched the hearts of those who loved her.


Thank you again.

They all said that mum would have very proud and also people were saying  how light you kept everything and that it was pleasure to hear everything that said with such warmth and compassion. Thank you once again Trevor,John and I thank you very much.     Cheers Philip




Evening Phil,
Before we go off on our separate ways just like to thank you again for the natural way you bring people together on what is for them a very sad occasion. Without you input our celebration of our Fathers life would have been so much less.
Thank you again.
Good luck in your business and a healthy and happy life.




As a family, we are so grateful to you for your kindness and attention to detail from our initial contact, the day of the service, and continuing through until now. Thank you!

With kind regards

Hello Phil,


I just wanted to say a huge "Thank you" for giving my mum a great send off - I've received plenty of compliments, saying that you provided a professional but relaxed & friendly service. 

I have found the past few weeks very difficult and you helped to ease that, by helping with the order of service etc.


Best Wishes,




Hi Phil


Thank you again for the most amazing ceremony. I can honestly say, hand on heart that it was perfect and it was just what dad would have wanted. I hope you don't mind but I passed your details onto one of dads friends who was so impressed with your presentation.




 Hi there Philip,


 Just wanted to say a BIG thank you for yesterday! The service went so smoothly and everyone commented how lovely it was (well they would - they are not gonna say otherwise really!!! :-)). Most importantly, we thought it was great and thought the way you spoke was perfect!! Also how you looked into Alma Terry and other historical references really made it unique for us!


 Thanks again!


best wishes




Hi Phil

Mark and I would like to say thank you for all your input in helping us celebrate dads life and no word can describe how proud you made us feel with your exceptional speech thanks again x








On behalf of all family’s involved I wanted to thank you for the most professional and compassionate way in which you took this load off our shoulders, and delivered such a wonderful, meaningful and appropriate event. I never expected people to describe a funeral as “lovely”, or say they ”really enjoyed it”, but that is what a number said to us, and  I understand what they mean. So congratulations on a job well done!


Chris and his team contributed hugely, Adam &Greenwood were so caring and compassionate.


Again, sincere thanks for all your assistance.


Tony, on behalf of Beryl, Jonathan and Sally





I just wanted to write and thank you for making yesterday's service go so well.


Many people told me what a beautiful occasion it had been and that it had captured the essence of Carl exactly.


I am very relieved that it is all over. I don't think you realize what stress you are putting yourself under until it is behind you. However your help and support made things a lot easier for me.


I hope you took quiet satisfaction from it as well.


Anyway I would certainly recommend your services to anyone.

Thank you again.


Best wishes 



Hi Philip, I’d like to thank you so much for all your hard work on Wednesday, myself my family and almost everyone there has said how fantastic the services as that  you delivered, I wanted you to talk about Jason in a way that was not like anyone else, and you did exactly what I asked, thank you, kindest regards Nicola 



Hi Philip


I just wanted to say a final thank you for the amazing way you supported us through the service for our late uncle William. As you said it is no easy trying to organise something via email and telephone but you did a brilliant job.  Everyone has said how much they 'enjoyed' the service - full of memories and light hearted moments.


Once again my sincere thanks for your help and support




Hi Phil I hope you're well, apologies for not getting in touch earlier. I just wanted to say a big thank you from my family & myself & John for the wonderful send off you helped put together for mum. I know it was a sad day but we later celebrated her life & it's was a beautiful evening. I just wanted you to know how grateful we are for the fantastic job you did in your preparation & the wonderful job you did in the day. Thanks again. Rob Djemil 


Phil I just want to thank you from all of the family for the wonderful service you held for our lovely Dad, Barry. It was perfect, a real personal  tribute to him which he would have loved. Thank you also for the additional things you did i.e. contacting his colleagues from his section at Meopham, that was so lovely and again Dad would have been delighted and moved that they attended, if possible please send them our sincere thanks. Also for notifying Kent Police so that we had the uniformed officer's salute, the wreath and your hat, it was great. Everyone has said how wonderfully personal it was so thank you once again from the whole family, it couldn't have been better and I am so happy my Dad got the send off he deserved. Clare 




Both Hazel and I wanted to write to you to say thank you and express our gratitude for the way that you officiated over our parents funerals.

For both occasions we had people coming up to us stating that if ever there was a nice funeral, then both Mum and Dads were the best they had been to.

I appreciate that my sisters, Hazels daughters, Hazel and myself put a huge amount of effort and care into the preparation, but the way you orchestrated and managed the services was incredibly moving, professional and respectful.

It has been a pleasure working with you over the last month and I wish you health, wealth and happiness in the future.

Thank you again for all your efforts and for keeping a tight eye on us all.


We will be having a celebratory dinner in September / October in honour of Mum and Dad in Congham Hall, Norfolk, and we shall be raising a glass and toasting you at that celebration.


With kindest regards and huge respect.

Nigel and Hazel





Phil, hope you're well.


Just wanted to drop you a line on behalf of my family.

To say thank you for all your help and support, it was a real pleasure meeting you and even better to deal with you.


The service you provided was exemplary in every way and it felt you have known us for years, my dad would of been proud !


Thank you again for making it go so well, you gave my dad a great send off.A number of people made comments on how great the service was and how good you were !!


 Thank you so much again.


Take care. Kind regards. Terry Sinclair
