"To Adrian and Staff. Thank you so much for everything you did for us. We felt that you went above and beyond our expectations in making our Mother's funeral, so memorable. Please thank all those involved. Janette, Karen, Tracy and Jill"
- Family of Kathleen Brooks

"On behalf of Helen and myself, we'd like to offer our grateful thanks for the way you handled dad's funeral. Sincerest care and compassion from start to finish made the whole process as painless as possible. Having handled mums funeral five years ago we wouldn't have used anyone else. Special thanks to Jenna for her total professionalism, care and understanding, we really appreciated everything you did for us."
- Andy & Helen Harrigan

"To Adrian, Just wanted to thank you, for making a hard time a lot easier. Watching the service back on the webcam, it’s the little things you don’t notice on the day but really appreciate, like making sure my family at the front had the Order of Service, making sure our wishes were carried out and that we were all happy and not being intrusive but there when needed and keeping everyone informed. A few people said why was I getting you a gift because that’s your job, but not everyone is good at their jobs but you and everyone at my Dad’s funeral, and everyone I spoke to, were excellent. Thanks again Avril"
- The Jones Family

"I would like to say a big ‘thank you’ to everyone at A J Lloyd for everything you have done to make Mick’s final journey more bearable. A special 'thank you' goes to Adrian, in the sensitivity and compassion he showed not just to me, but to Mick – and the umpteen cups of tea I was given. You and all your colleagues were really nice and treated us all, including Mick, with such dignity and respect. I can't thank you enough. You went above and beyond to help ease the pain I was enduring, and others at this very emotional time, and for that I'm truly grateful. May God bless you and thank you."
- The Jordan Family

"Dear Sam, Darren & all at A J Lloyd, We would like to say thank you to you all for the excellent, sympathetic service we received from everyone at A J Lloyd. Sam, you did an amazing job in organising everything – so efficient and provided complete reassurance that you had everything in control – so much needed at this difficult time. Darren, the professionalism and respectful nature that you and your colleagues carried out your duties on the day were exemplary. Dad liked things done tastefully and done well – he would have been very moved, as we were. Thank you so much for all your support."

"Karen - thank you so much for your support on the day and in the lead up, and thank you to all your staff. We commented on how fantastic each and every person has been, from the embalmer making dad look so at peace, to the lady on reception and the young lad who helped us too. Everybody has been so kind, so sensitive and nothing has been too much trouble. The job you all do is incredibly important and, I think, often overlooked. The way you have handled the process has really helped us with our process of grieving, so thank you from the bottom of our hearts."
- Helen and Emma Dagley

"I was recommended to AJ Lloyd by a trusted old friend as I was understandably in a very dark place after my Mum died. I can honestly say hand on heart it was the best decision I could have made. Karen, Adrian, Sam and all the team were the most respectful, caring and warmest professional Funeral Directors I have EVER come across. Empathy and sincerity were natural, never feeling forced and nothing was too much trouble. If you need your hand guiding through these very sad times, I cannot recommend this family firm highly enough. Truly, thank you from the bottom of my heart."

"Yesterday I attended the funeral of my former colleague and good friend Geoff Courtois, led by the Rev. Tulo Raistrick, most sensitively, and well organised by A J Lloyd. It must be so hard for clergy and funeral directors, as well as mourners, in such very troubled times and challenging circumstances. It was good to observe the same care and efficiency evident as I experienced when Muriel Grimmett and The Lloyd family organised my wife's funeral. Please pass on my respects, and best wishes to all involved."
- Mr Jeremy Thomas

"Dear Adrian. Just a note of appreciation for the care and excellent service that you provided to Carol and the family following their recent bereavement.

I am so glad that I chose AJ Lloyd Funeral Directors to help and support and deliver a funeral fit for a very brave lady who deserved the best send off possible.

From the first meeting we had with Karen, through to the funeral itself, the dignity, compassion and care we received was absolutely first class. Everyone we dealt with at AJ Lloyd went out of their way to help us and nothing was too much trouble. In what was personally a very tough time, AJ Lloyd certainly made everything much easier, and their attention to detail was excellent. The funeral was so well organised and beautifully run. I cannot thank AJ Lloyd enough for all they did for my father's funeral and I would highly recommend them"

A family firm with family values, dedicated to providing personalised funeral services"
