We have sadly lost two elderly family members in the past 18 months and we asked Gwinnells to take care of their funeral arrangements, having been recommended by a family friend. Their whole approach was professional, they are extremely helpful and friendly and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone else.

Hunnaballs of Colchester recently organised the funeral of my mother. Having never done this before, it was all very daunting. They were an enormous help, most particularly Maxine, and were respectful, very kind and genuinely caring throughout. I most particularly appreciated the fact that they were not in any way patronising at such a sad time. I would strongly recommend them.
