    My lovely mum had the most beautiful send off, which was carefully planned by our family. H J Newman took the time to get to know what our wishes were and they really looked after us and made sure that the day went as smoothly as possible.

    I highly recommend Newman’s . An exceptional level of service at such a difficult time for us . From the moment I spoke to Tina I felt relieved and that everything was under control. The priest who conducted the funeral service also commented on how impressed he was - it was the first time he had dealt with Newman’s. All of the team treated us with dignity and kindness. So grateful. Thank you Newman’s

    Newmans quite frankly provided the best customer service I have ever experienced. The respect, dignity, and empathy shown towards me and my family was exceptional and I would highly recommend them to anyone. At a time of great emotional upset their knowledge and support was second to none. Thank you Newmans to you and all your exceptional staff.

    H. J. Newman made the process of holding a funeral run smoothly. Their experience and professionalism show in everything they do. They were efficient and considerate at every step. No one enjoys having a funeral, but it was helpful to have the experienced H. J. Newman staff guide me through the service. They provided an air of sensitivity and dignity and made the practical details run smoothly. Their prices are competitive and they are a family business that pays attention to detail and personal preferences. It was my first time having to organize a funeral, and I was very satisfied with the service that H. J. Newman provided.

    Tina, Barbara, & Mark to name some of team members that dealt with my Father's funeral were all Understanding, helpful, friendly, polite & sympathetic. Everything we could have asked for at a very sad time. Newmans came recommended and I would further recommend. Keep up the great work you do and many thanks.
