It is always difficult to describe a loved ones funeral as lovely, but that is exactly how my dads was thanks to Stuart Wright and his team at Gilesgate. They arranged the order of service, flowers and catering. Before my dad died he wanted a new silver Jaguar and while we were not able to grant him that we did manage to get him to his final resting place in a beautiful new car and I know he would have been so happy with that. Thank you Stuart.

My husband died in March and I contacted Aldersons Funeral Directors. They did everything for me including catering and flowers. They were there for me at anytime. They were very respectful but extremely kind and friendly. They certainly looked after me and my family.
