I just wanted to write a review about Grant, Sandra and all the team at County FuneralsWhen my mum sadly passed away, they were very supportive towards myself as a daughter and the rest of my family.My mum had a funeral plan, and she asked Grant for a few things to happen at her funeral, and on the day he full filled it.I went to view my mum and she looked lovely clean and well cared for.Just thought i would let people know my experience as i highly recommend them. It is very hard and upsetting when you lose your love one, but knowing the team are there to support answer any question is reassuringKeep up the good work guys

Grant and the County Funerals team are simply the best. Always considerate and approachable at what will be the most difficult of times for any family. My family and I were so appreciative of the care they took of us - always personal, sensitive and respectful, but also with a straightforward and practical approach that made things easier. The funeral itself was so dignified, with proper presentation, ritual and respect but also with a quiet understatement that was just right for us. I am very grateful to Grant, Amelia and the team.

I can highly recommend this place .The people here are so kind and truly seem genuine- we visited a few in the area and to put it bluntly they all seemed so depressing - this place felt homely in a funny kind of way and the staff so relaxed and it immediately felt the right place to bring our mum -:I would highly reccomend these people.The service was outstanding and nothing to much trouble.This is a business but felt human .

After loosing my partner and feeling way out of my depth id never dreamed that I'd be in this situation, County Funerals were able to reassure me of my worries and nothing seemed too much. Although because I didn't what to do and when I found it all difficult but it all came together beautifully on the day. Grant and the team treated my partner with respect in slightly unusual circumstances and I'd definitely trust them again.

My family have used County Funerals a few times now. They always provide very good advice and provide an excellent service. I have always felt very reassured and happy with the way they look after our loved ones. I can highly recommend them to anyone

Recommended by a friend and they did not disappoint from our first meeting to the funeral. They were just lovely! Excellent feedback from the care home when they collected mum and then supported us throughout the whole process. They arranged the order of service and would have arranged the celebrant and flowers if we had required this. Viewing was very sensitively done and all our choices were accommodated. Suggested an Earthurn as we were scattering the ashes at sea which has a geotag system to mark the final resting place. Thank you for everything.

Thankyou so much, Grant and your wonderful team for the beautiful funeral you gave Kevin. Thankyou again, Grant, for your kind words as I know neither myself or Kevin's sister could've spoken without tears. A professional, yet personal touch to what was a very sad day. Cherylx

It's a pretty awful time arranging the last journey of a loved one. Grant, Sandra and the team at County Funerals made the whole process painless. Their recommendations were perfect and the day went as well as these things can go. Despite the occasion, they are a fun and considerate team and are very easy to recommend.

Grant & his team are amazing. They make you feel so at ease from the minute you get there. My dad was with them for a few weeks & I could go see him as much as I wanted which helped with the whole process of losing him. My dad was well looked after. They take all the worries out of your hands. The service they offer is incredible anything you would like, they can offer!!I would like to thank grant & his team for everything they have done for me & my family & making my dad final journey just perfect.From Sam & family xx

Nothing but praise for County Funerals, they have been wonderful. A small family run business, providing a professional, and caring service. Nothing was too much trouble, in fact they went above and beyond to help me, even coming up to Norfolk to meet me and set the initial plans in place for my husband's funeral back in Hertfordshire.Always someone to help me whenever I made contact and I made a great deal of contact, they always responded in a friendly and supportive manner. I always felt valued and cared for, not just another client being processed through a big franchise.Count Funerals care and support throughout the planning and on the day of the funeral was everything and more than I could have wished for.Grant and his team have been wonderful. I felt it was very much a case of his family helping mine.So, to Grant and all staff at County Funerals, Thank you for your support and care.Great service, friendly and very reasonably priced.Dawn Stevens

Sandra was exceptionally lovely and professional and made us at ease when discussing my dads funeral. We chose the direct cremation and was astounded by how affordable and how simple the procedures and process was. Just what dad wanted and took the fuss out of any arrangements. Would highly recommend County Funeral to everyone
20:29 27 Aug 22
Staff were lovely, helpful and had such a good attitude. We were able to "see" dad as he wanted a "pure cremation" let us have their offices for as long as we wanted , very kind

The team at county funerals are amazing, They really helped out family through this tough time. My mother in law had the best send off. We could not be more happy with everything that was done for us. Always made welcome and nothing was too much. Grant and his team go above and beyond. And are truely amazing. Nikki the humanist is highly recommended too. Great fit for our family. So from collection to cremation the whole process was made easy and no hard sale and we could not be more happier with the service. Highly recommend county funerals.

County Funerals recently handled my husbands cremation, they were so helpful & professional from start to finish. The friendly team kept me informed at every stage of the process, which made this task a lot easier, especially at a time when one is emotionally challenged. I can highly recommend this company to anyone needing to organise a funeral. Well done & thankyou to all the Team at County Funerals

Grant and the team are second to none. The best way I can describe the service we have received from County Funerals is an old fashioned style family business providing an immaculate experience at the most difficult of times.County Funerals looked after our mum when she passed away and from the first phone call, at the first visit to discuss the arrangements, the subsequent discussions to finalise the detail, and finally the funeral itself we were treated with love, care, compassion and empathy. This was still all done with a smile where it was appropriate.There was no hard sell or pushing of little extras, instead the options were provided and we were able to make our choices. Nothing was too much trouble and all our requirements were met without question.A special mention must also go to Nikki, whom Grant recommended to be our celebrant at the funeral. Nikki gathered the information at a meeting with us and then worked with us to fine tune the ceremony. And then at the ceremony the Eulogy and readings were delivered with love and compassion it was as if she had known Mum for years.I cannot thank the entire team enough. At what is one of the most difficult times to go through personally what you need is a personal touch and the compassion I have already mentioned.I urge any one who is going through a bereavement to use Grant and his team.

Grant suggested an option we hadn't heard of before, direct cremation. This allowed us to plan a memorial service and scattering of ashes at a later date that suited more people and allowed us to plan better.Once we had agreed what the plan was Grant and his team did exactly what they said they would do, reliably and with minimum fuss and bother, while providing support and advice when we asked for it, all at a highly competitive price. They deserve 5 stars.

I can’t praise County Funeral enough!Grant and his team were fantastic at an extremely difficult and emotional time.They just came up with the right thoughts and ideas at the right time helping you make your decisions without any time pressure.The funeral of my brother could not have gone better.Thank you so much.

We cannot thank County Funerals enough for helping my mum-in-law (Andy's mum) on her final journey to her new home. An emotional and sad time was made so much easier because of their caring, compassionate and professional manner (and of course the numerous cups of tea and biscuits!) They were always there for us at any time with kind chats and comforting hugs. This was Donna's first burial and she was wonderful. I am so happy we chose this family-run, independent team, who gave their personal touch to everything they did and nothing was ever any trouble. Thank you to Grant, Donna and all the team for everything x
13:09 29 Mar 22
So glad we found this independent Funeral director nothing was too much trouble The cost was far more reasonable than the local co-op in fact nearly £2000 cheaper
20:09 15 Mar 22
The team at County Funerals were fantastic when helping my family and I organise my father in law's funeral. So much thought and consideration to every detail. Can't thank them enough. Definitely recommend.
12:45 15 Mar 22
From start to finish everybody we came across were professional, compassionate and as helpful as they could be. Donna and Grant were excellent, thank you to you both.I would thoroughly recommend County Funerals to all, knowing that they would receive the very best of attention.
15:49 02 Feb 22
Thank you to everyone at County Funerals for making a heartbreaking and distressing time that much easier from the beginning to the end for my dear mum. The kindness, respect and patience everyone showed really helped in planning the arrangements. In particular Nikki's service, the family felt, did mum proud.
16:14 01 Dec 21
Thank you very much for everything that you did to make Mum's passing so much easier to deal with. From the first phone call and collection of Mum from her home, we knew she was in good hands.Everyone has been so professional, kind and caring from start to finish. Thank you so much to Sandra for taking such good care of Mum whilst she rested with you, she looked beautiful, I felt she had known Mum for years. Also for taking all our calls/texts and for the tea and cuddles. Thank you to Grant and his extreme patience with the visual and Order of Service, is there no end to this man’s talents?! To Nikki for delivering such a beautiful eulogy, her patience and kindness was remarkable and unforgettable. To Jeff for driving us to the service and then to Mum’s ‘do’ afterwards and not forgetting his world-famous tea! You are all stars.The funeral itself was beautiful. The cars and all your staff looked wonderful. Mum's coffin looked radiant with all the flowers and is a sight I shall never forget. You all did a fantastic job throughout. Mum would have been thrilled with the whole service. She has been cared for wonderfully.We have no hesitation in recommending you to others - heartfelt thanks to you all - it was the best funeral we have ever been to!Best wishes to you all, Sally & Martin xxx

My brother has already left his own review for County Funerals, and even though he spoke for both of us, I felt that I had to leave my own as well.From the minute I phoned Grant to ask him to take care of our Mums funeral arrangements I felt that we, and our Mum, were in safe and caring hands.At the initial meeting at the office to make the arrangements, where we met the whole team, we were treated with patience when we struggled to decide on a coffin and consideration when we changed our mind about visiting Mum in the chapel of rest. Nothing was too much trouble.Nicky, our celebrant, guided us through planning the service for Mum and made the whole experience so much easier.On the day of the funeral we were able to drive past the house that Mum spent most of her life in, even stopping so my brother could join Grant walking in front of the hearse;, a lovely, thoughtful gesture.A last minute change to allow my brother to act as pallbearer was no problem and Grant’s discreet guidance and support were very much appreciated.The team at County Funerals helped us give our Mum a beautiful, fitting and respectful goodbye. It was a day that will always be remembered. Despite grey skies beforehand, the sun shone for the duration of Mums funeral. I wouldn’t be surprised if Grant had a hand in that as well!!Thank you so much for making a sad and difficult time a bit more bearable.

Thank you for the sensitive and considerate way that you handled all the arrangements for our Mum’s funeral.The memories we have of the day, while sad of course, are all good ones. Simple things such as the procession proceeding along the road Mum lived on for most of her lifetime were handled with both care and attention to detail. Flexibility on the day to allow members of the family to be involved in the procession past Mum’s house and swapping in pall bearer’s at the last minute were all done easily and with minimum fuss.The occasion was everything we wanted it to be for Mum and it was the perfect send off for her. Thank you to all the team at County Funerals for making that happen for us.
09:47 28 Aug 21
Absolute amazing company.The support Grant and his team have have shown our family over the past month cannot be faulted. No request to big or to small, everything explained in a kind and caring manner. Every little detail we wanted was made with love and care. Thank you all for making the hardest time for my dad and us daughters that much easier. Thank you for helping me on the day to carry my mum to her final resting place, the support and guidance was truly amazing.We called around all the funeral homes and this one was by far the warmest most caring company which is what we wanted. My Mum wasn’t just a number, she was treated with the dignity and care she deserves.so thank you all for everything you did for us xxx

Having used the services of County Funerals on a previous occasion, I had no hesitation in going back to them when my wife lost her battle with cancer.Once again, they exceeded my expectations, the ease in dealing with them in making the preparations, along with their advice was invaluable, and on the day everything went very smoothly - in fact the comments from some members of the family probably summed it up better than I could - the comment being “they really cared, it was almost as if they were part of the family”.Would I recommend County Funerals to my friends and family - without hesitation, thank you for making a stressful day a lot lot easier.
