We contacted Sullivan & Sons after my Uncle Jim died suddenl. From the frist phone call with Julie we knew this was the company we wanted to arrange my Uncle Jim's Cremation.  As i was organising the Cremation from Dublin the Sullivan team where very supportive and Julie helped me make some very difficult decisions. The Sullivan team are compassionate, professional, supportive and kind hearted  They kept me fully informed every step of the way of Jims Cremation. 

Jims ashes are now in Dublin in the family plot. I would like to say a big thank you to Julie & Sullivan team

I would highly recommend Sullivan & Sons. They will take excellent care of your loved one.

There are no adequate words to say thank you to Sullivan and Sons for their support cooperation and flexibility in helping us arrange a sea burial for our Father. Even in the face of constant changes and requests, we were dealt with with kindness and patience and understanding. Nothing was too much.

They constantly communicated throughout and every effort was made to give my father what he wanted.

it was an unforgettable service and deserves 5 stars.

So a huge thank you from myself and my family.

Paul, Alex and Julie were so supportive in helping with the funeral arrangements for my late brother Eamonn.  They gave advice when asked and followed our wishes when we expressed our preferences.  Given that it was all done via phone and email due to distance,, the end result was exactly what we wanted, and more importantly exactly as my brother would have wished.  Their pricing plan is straighforward and well itemised; they did not try to upsell in any way or make us feel that we needed to spend more to make it  a special occasion.  I thoroughly recommend them.

When Mum died in the early hours of the morning, I didn't realise that I needed to engage an Undertaker immediately. I found Sullivan & Son online. Their website is excellent and provided all the information I needed. From the first phone call to them, they gave me all the reassurance and support you could wish for. They made arranging Mums funeral as painless as possible. During the funeral and after, they were on hand with further guidance, prepared to give any additional support we might need. Sullivan & Son are a wholly trustworthy company, whom I would recommend to anyone.

I had to arrange the funeral of my Brother who passed away unexpectedly.

I had never been through the process before,so at one of the worst times I had to think about arranging his funeral.with little knowledge of how to go about it.

Sullivans made it so easy.  I only wanted a simple funeral as I am sure my Brother would have wished, I was also on a tight budget. The overall care,discretion and attention made me feel as if I'd spent thousands.

I chose a celebrant to carry out the service,which Sullivans arranged. Her delivery of the service was absolutely beautiful.

I would like to say a big thank you to Paul and Alex for their excellent service during a very difficult time for me. They were compassionate and made the whole process very easy, and they provided a lovely service on the day of the funeral for my father. They were completely transparent in all their costings and were also quite a bit cheaper than the other quotes I got, saving me around £700. Their website allows you to view the cost of each item you want and gives a grand total at the bottom. Highly recommended.

I chose Sullivan and Son, having read the information and reviews on their website. When someone dies you dont have a lot of time to research and then engage a funeral director, and I consider myself fortunate that I found Sullivans by chance, but their service leaves nothing to chance. I was very impressed with the professionalism and kindness shown to me at a difficult time. The team were more than happy to speak on the phone at any time, and it was reassuring that I was able to make an appointment for a home visit to discuss details. Julie was really friendly and helped me through the decisions, striking just the right tone. She also kept in contact, to ensure every detail was correct. My visit to the Chapel of Rest was extremely calm and Mum looked very peaceful. On the day of the funeral, everyone looked very smart and respectful and the funeral went very smoothly.

Thank you Alex and Julie for your help and guidance. I would not hesitate to recommend you.

Because my mother-in-law passed away just before Christmas it was a very difficult time for the family.

However, Alex did everything he could to ensure the family still got to visit their mum several times before the funeral took place.

Sullivans was over £1500 cheaper then 3 of the other major funeral directors around and I can truly say that nothing was too much for them.

Alex is very kind, supportive, understanding and empathetic to his customers needs.

He helped me to organise everything and suggested a fantastic Minister for the service.

My family and I will be using sullivans for all our funerals from this day forth.

My brother died in Kent.  We live in London, so finding a local funeral director was made easy by Sullivan's excellent website, which has a most useful ready-reckoner showing all the services available above the essential ones, and allowed us to quickly cost and plan the event.

Paul and Alex were very helpful and supportive at all times, and worked with us to make sudden changes of plan possible, guiding us through the registration process and the coroner's office procedures.  Their local knowledge proved invaluable and everything was set-up within a short space of time.

On the day we found the calm, dignified and unobtrusive service they offered very good indeed.  Paul is a delightful person who is sensitive and friendly.

In all our dealings with Sullivan & Son from start to finish we felt great satisfaction.  They are the kind of people I would like to deal with me when I pass on !

I first came across Sullivan & son's website when looking for a funeral director just after my father-in-law died in December 2011. Comparing it with many other websites I looked at I was pleasantly surprised with the comprehensive choice of services, and complete transparency of costs involved.

 

 

 

After the funeral I was so impressed with their professionalism that I have recommended them to many of my friends who have also been very pleased with costs and service from Sullivan & Sons.

 

 

 

Unfortunately my mother-in-law has just passed away last month and although a sad time it was a great help knowing that everything was taken care of by Paul & Alex.

 

I can’t recommend them enough, an excellent company.
