Funeral and Memorial Service Testimonials

Customer testimonials of our funeral and memorial services

Dear Mario

Thank you very much for all that you did to help us make Dad's funeral such a special celebration of his life.

I had never experienced the grim task of selecting a funeral director and planning a funeral before, but from my first phone call with Carly it seemed likely that the Greenhaven team would handle our funeral arrangements in a personalised, straight-forward and professional manner. We were not disappointed. In the midst of a stressful and sad time, it was was extremely reassuring to feel that Dad was being taken care of respectfully and that all aspects of the service were being handled. Mario neither pushed us nor rushed us for decisions, giving us all the time we needed to think through and prepare the perfect content for Dad's service and Carly kept in contact to ensure that we were happy with the final details at every stage. It was comforting to know that the owner of the business was so hands-on and in control of all the arrangements. All we had to do was provide the photos, the songs and the memories!

It was also really impressive that the whole Greenhaven team were in attendance on the day of the service; a testament to your truly personalised approach to each funeral. Your caring, competent and unobtrusive handling of such an important day for our family was much appreciated.

With many thanks and kind regards,

Dear Mario,

I would like to thank you profusely for doing such a beautiful job of sending my mum off yesterday. You have been an absolute pleasure to work with, most accommodating, patient and utterly professional.

Thank you for delivering over and above. The attention to detail at the grave and the lovely attendants, the music, absolutely everything was delivered as I had imagined.

Your service, as you promised has made my farewell of my mum so much more beautiful and bearable. A cherished memory.

Thank you again, Lucy Simpson. 10th Feb 2016

I would like to thank you for the lovely venue selected for Shannon’s service and the wonderful service itself. I’m sure he would be impressed.

Kind Regards, Lynne Jeffrey

You could say we were unsure about a celebrant seeing that we are of Catholic belief. We have found them in the past to be cold and impersonal, reading from past scriptures not relating to the person involved. We decided on Mario, because we knew of him. We wanted the service to be personal and from the heart. He delivered that tremendously and used our family notes very well in his delivery.

He delivered the service with efficiently and accurately. You made it so easy for us, negotiating amongst family members in order to get the job done, with door to door service and your genuine interest in the whole ceremony.

We would recommend him to all types of people regardless of the occasion because his professionalism shines through. Congratulations on a job well done, it certainly shows in the final product.  Amanda Stewart – funeral of her uncle Neil Stewart
