We needed to find a funeral director remotely as live 200 miles away from where the funeral needed to be held and were so lucky to discover the services of Oak Funerals & Jonathan.  I spoke to Julie at length and she was very helpful & kind . The whole experience went smoothly and although a simple cremation it was much nicer than we had anticipated.  The sedgemoor crematorium was a lovely peaceful location. We couldn't fault anything & were very grateful for the way everything was handled.

From the first telephone call it was evident that this was a completely professional and yet personal service that was offered. Jonathan visitied us at our home to discuss all of the arrangements necessary and put us completely at ease. Despite living near Bath, the distance did not pose a problem. We found Oak Funeral services via Google search and came across their online, unbiased pdf download which explained the whole process. The information was a 'no holds barred' explanation of the industry and the services. Nothing was too much trouble and the actual service provided was wholly professional and dignified. We would not hesitate to recommend Jonathan and his team.

Jonathan Mees and his team could not have been kinder or more helpful to me. Their services were brilliant and as I am disabled they took note of this and went all out to make sure I was OK. The services done for my husband David could not have been better.

From the moment I made contact with Oak Funeral Services Julie and Jon could not have been more helpful.  They tuned into our needs to make what can be a very difficult day, as respectful and gentle as it could.

Jon, Julie and the team made everything feel so right on the day and we feel that it could not have gone any better than it did.

thank you so much

Chris, Julie and Maria.

My first contact was with Julie who was kind, understanding and very helpful. They handled all the arrangements with a combination of sensitivity and considerate efficiency. Although it doesn't seem appropriate to make reference to the cost, for various reasons this was a consideration for us and Oak Funeral Services were able to offer an absolutely first rate service at the most competative price we were able to find anywhere. Thank you again.

Patiently compassionate and in tune with the circumstances. I feel Jonathan had just the right attitude. He was helpful beyond the call of duty and co-operated with my wishes,in arranging things for the day so that it was as ( I hope) George would have wanted. Not the conventional funeral but really personal.

My Mum discussed with me what she wanted for her funeral.

I have never really met an undertaker before and was anxious about what to expect.  They seem to be very starchy! I was worried that there might be undue pressure to have things that my Mum or the family did not want or feel guilty about "not doing things as others might expect". I need not have worried. 

I met with Jonathan at Oak Funerals before my Mum passed away as i wanted to meet the person before mum's passing, so i knew who to expect.

When i met with Jonathan he was very understanding and able to talk me through the processes, offer options and gave me enough information to help make the important decisions.

When my Mum passed away a couple of weeks later, i called Jonathan and was very reassured when he came to the house. He was understanding, professional, courtious and friendly and there was no rush. We had time to say goodbye properly.

I met with him two days later and made the arrangements. Again there was no rush. We ordered a lovely willow coffin that my Mum wanted.

Throughout the whole process i have been impressed with the service provided and the respect and dignity afforded to my Mum and my family.

The day of Mum's celebration, it was well organised and hassle free, which is what you need at this difficult time. I knew we were in safe hands.

Both Jonathan and Julie have been fantastic and we can't recommend them highly enough.  So thank you.

My Mum wanted a "no fuss" funeral, which is known as a "Direct funeral" or "Direct cremation"

The first "Direct" people I tried did not appear to be "on the ball", so I tried local funeral directors but they were obviously out of their comfort zone.

Jonathan at Oak Funerals did exactly what we wanted, with a personal touch.

Mum would have approved, I am sure.

Thanks from Simon and Patricia and families.

From first contact to the delivery of the funeral DVD, Jonathan and Ian were continually supportive.  I had discussed with my mother her wishes for the style of funeral and initially spoke to Jonathan just after Christmas when it seemed Mum would die any day.  In the end, she died in June but there was never any sense of me being a nuisance and having sorted out many of the details in advance was a big advantage when the time came, even though some things inevitably had to change.  What I particularly liked was that my choices were always respected and if I turned down one of their suggestions that was always fine.  As we were rather making up a secular funeral service from Mum's wishes and my past experiance, I was grateful for their help in making a very successful funeral which resulted in much positive feedback from attendees.  There was no pushing to have options one didn't want and there was always advice on how to achieve what I did want.  The stunning cardboard coffin with a picture of St. Michael's Mount was a major talking point and my Mum would have loved it. 


I would have no hesitation in recommending Oak to anyone but especially to those who do not want a standard funeral.

From the initial meeting I felt a calmness and dignity which helped through a very traumatic and sudden death.  I was never pressurised and was enabled to change my mind at various stages in the process when this became necessary.
This allowed for the creation of both a church and crematorium service which all members of friends and family who attended said was completely correct for the person they knew.
Throughout the process I was utterly grief stricken and this was always understood and accepted with an ability to try to help the living come to terms with the death.

I have found that Oak Funerals particularly believes in celebrating the person's whole existence and not just the final part of life and positively encourages the families feel a part however much or little they feel they can do. 
I did avail myself of enquiring of other undertakers where everything was just about cost, whereas Oak Funerals were totally about the human being involved and I heartily recommend them and their team to anyone.

We had nothing prepared for the time when one of us would be left alone.

Jonathan and his team came into our lives the day after my husband of 68 years died in hospital-the night before he was due to come home. I was devastated.

Why choose Oak Funeral Services?

The funeral parlor was less than a mile from my home.This must have been a heaven sent choice.

Tom did come home for 24 hrs and I was able to visit their Chapel of Rest whenever I or family wanted.

From day one their support was thoughtful in every way.

Consideration of my every wish was taken into account.

The Funeral took place on Tom's 92nd Birthday, December 18th 2014.It was a Celebration and Farewell beautifully organized and carried out.

Jonathan and his team were so very kind in every way and they have been a real support.Their guidance and care was invaluable and gentle at that difficult time.

I am still in touch with them.

Thank You

Jonathon was absolutely wonderful from start to finish. In 2013 he conducted a simple crematorium service for our Dad. Dad's strict instructions about a no fuss service were followed to the letter yet with great compassion by Jonathon.

In December 2014 he conducted a crematorium service for our Mum. Mum's service was simple but she was more sentimental than Dad and would have wanted her close family with her. Neither my sister nor I felt we were able to say the words we wanted to about how much our Mum meant to us, so Jonathon, using his lovely soft voice, said them for us along with other wonderful words and poems that made the simple service so special and memorable.  

Nothing was too much trouble for Jonathon, he is a lovely, caring person and extremely professional which is all you can want as such a sad time. I would, and have, recommend him to other people who are going through such times.

Thank you Jonathon.  Gill

Words can hardly express how brilliant John Mees has been. He went above and beyond to help me at such a difficult time. 

He is beyond doubt exceptional. I was able to plan exaxtly what I and my late partner needed. 

I was treated as an individual. He came out in the early hours to remove the body which was no easy task as we live in an old cottage on Exmoor where access is difficult.

I was able to visit his funeral parlour and paint on the card board coffin which I'd chosen which was fitting as both my late partner and I are artists.

He worked closely with me to give me exactly what I wanted. He was intuitive and genuine in his dedication to making the death experience for me and my family and partner's family as painless as possible.

He also gave even more than I expected during his introduction at the cremation which, as I and my late partner would have wanted, was a simple no frills affair. He worked closely with me to keep the costs down.

I feel unbelievably lucky to have found John Mees.

On first meeting Jonathan Mees, and his colleague, Hazel, my sister Lorraine, brother Pat and I were all instantly struck by their compassion, the time that they took to listen to our rambling requirements and the effort they took to explain the process, the options and exact costs. We all immediately agreed that we would like Jon to look after Dad. Jon kept in touch throughout the whole process, guiding us in what we needed to do, timings and so on. He showed exceptional patience as we changed our minds about the details and were late arriving to see Dad in the Chapel of Rest. Jon spoke eloquently at Dad's funeral, even delivering one of the speeches when a friend of Dad's found it all too emotional. Nothing was too much for Jon, and he catered for our every wish, delivering a fitting send off for our father. In a profession which demands putting the needs of bereaved families before ones own, I would rate Oak Funeral Services extremely highly. I could have wanted for nothing more from a funeral director and I would recommend anyone in West Somerset to speak to Jon.
