Sandra Fields - Jeffrey Harrison

Posted on April 24th, 2018

I cannot thank Christian Townsend enough for his extremely attentive and sympathetic way he guided us through the process of cremating my father, Jeffrey Harrison. He was so understanding and caring and made a very difficult time a lot easier to bear for us all. The Celebrant, Peter, spent a lot of time with our family in order to ‘get to know’ my father and really did a tremendous job, so much so, that a lot of the congregation commented on the wonderful service and the way in which it was conducted by Peter. Iwouldn’t hesitate to recommend TownsendMoore funeral directors and the excellent service they provided at such good value. Many thanks again.

Sharon leakey - Funeral of Gemma Leakey

Posted on April 23rd, 2018

I am very grateful to have come across Christian at Townsend Moore funeral services, when my daughter passed away suddenly he was so helpful and caring when helping make decisions in such a difficult time this made it a lot easier for myself and my family . He was very professional throughout planning the funeral. The service carried out was so beautiful and I can not thank you enough for all the help you gave us as a family. The civil celebrante Gemma who held the ceremony was very professional and polite and did a fantastic service for our daughter. The caring and kind gesture of Christian for letting Gemmas daughter Abbigail lead the coffin on its last journey to the crematorium by walking in front was really lovely and did make the funeral go beautifully. I highly recommend townsendmoore funeral services for how caring, professional and supportive they have been throughout. Me and my husband are very keen to sort out our funeral plans now. Thankyou once again for a fantastic service.

shirley clements - Douglas Roberts Funeral

Posted on February 28th, 2018

Townsend Moore Funeral Services provide a fantastic service, I speak from experience, due to the recent death of my father. Christian Townsend visited us initially where he was so understanding and sympathetic whilst remaining very professional. He explained things most eloquently and offered us numerous choices and tailored the arrangements to suits us in every respect. The company even sent us a sympathy card along with a few phone calls to see if we needed any help with anything.
Townsend Moore made a very difficult time pass smoothly and we valued their support immensely. We were so impressed we have purchased their funeral plans for my husband and myself.
I believe that Townsend Moore are the very best funeral directors.

Dear April,
I would like to thank you for how well you looked after myself and my
mother in organising Dad's funeral. Nothing was too much trouble for
you, and from the beginning you guided me through what I had to do to
register the death, and all the other things that were needed. The
funeral itself went like clockwork, and I know my Mum was very happy
with the service, which was especially important as she was in such a
frail state herself. I would be only too happy to recommend you and
Townsend -Moore.
Yours sincerely,
Wendy Williams

Maureen White - The Late John White

Posted on February 15th, 2018

Good Morning Peter. Thank you so very much for the service yesterday for John. It was absolutely perfect, just as John would have wanted. I had several comments afterwards,about how your words summed him up to perfection. In fact one of his RAF friends said he wants you, when he goes, and I most certainly want you to do mine ( not in the very near future, I hope ). April and you made a very difficult time much easier for me, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart, I could not have asked for better support. Kind Regards Maureen.

Colin Doughty - Trevor Doughty 4th January

Just a quick note to thank you and all your colleagues at Townsend Moore for the excellent service provided whilst arranging my brother Trevor's funeral. <br>The professional approach taken by yourself and others was first class. You made planning his funeral far easier and less stressful than it might otherwise have been. You were with us all the way through and easily contactable for any help and advice we needed. Also suggesting Peter Allen to take the funeral service, he was excellent.<br>Once again April a big thank you for all the help provided, and I highly recommend Townsend and Moore to anyone in a similar situation went required to arrange a similar service for a loved one.

From the moment my daughter and I entered the premises to sort out the funeral of my wife we were treated with nothing but respect. Chris went through everything with us plainly and simply. Everything was covered in a detailed manner with a professional but compassionate manner, from the arrangements to organising both flowers and order of service. He undoubtedly saved us a fair amount of money but with no shortcuts. We were kept informed of how things were progressing at all times and I have no reservations about recommending both Townsend Moore as a company or Chris himself as a person, what was a very difficult time was handled with utmost care and as little upset as possible.

Dave and Lucy Turner - The late Dennis Turner

Posted on February 2nd, 2017

To Chris, Mick and your Team<br>We would like to say on behalf of all the family a very big thank you to you all on the death of our late uncle. His wishes were not to use the local well established Funeral Directors in Grantham and so we entrusted him into your care. From our first meeting with you, your kindness and sensitivity shown to us was second to none. You kept us informed all the way through from the beginning and when the day arrived everything was perfect. Your final slow walk through the village past his house gave a special ending to this difficult day. We would have no hesitation in recommending your professional services to others.<br>Kind Regards<br>Dave and Lucy Turner

Harry Baker - Thank you

Posted on January 28th, 2017

With the passing of my dear wife Marline at the Grantham Hospital Hospice on the 14th January, i have been helped all of the way by Christian.
The approach of Townsend Moore is far far beyond what i expected. Christian is so kind and genuine in dealing with a very sad and delicate situation. He appreciates how i was feeling and contacted me daily to ensure that i was ok and also inform me of the progress of the cremation of Marline.
I collected my wifes ashes this morning which i was dreading,BUT Christian once again helped me through.
It is a genuine caring company and their financial arrangements are very realistic.
I could NOT recommend his company highly enough, so THANK YOU Christian i appreciate everything that you have done.

Mrs Vanessa Suter - My Mothers Funeral

Posted on January 15th, 2017

Dear Chris Townsend, please accept my sincere thanks for the help you gave me in arranging the best Farewell for my Mother that we could have hoped for. From the second I called you were exactly what I was looking for! You absolutely offered your condolences, and rather than just make it a call about your services offered and the money I felt I was getting more of a personal experience from you! You offered the most idyllic setting for my Mother to lay whilst she waited to be laid to rest, you called at all of the appropriate times, ie to ensure we had agreed dates / times, to tell me that you had my Mother, to give me any updates I needed at all, to walk me through anything I needed. You were always there when I had any queries, and always there reminding me of the things I needed to be thinking of and doing, which at such a time is so very welcomed as honestly no one is at their best at these times! ..............The day of the Funeral came, the Funeral Car was dressed beautifully with the flowers as agreed, yourself walking the car out of the Village was a truly lovely touch, and it was lovely to be able to follow you and have a decent drive for my Mother to the Crematorium. Honestly I cannot thank you enough for making a difficult time slightly easier! ................. The first place I called didn't even offer their condolences and just made it simply a business transaction!!! You gave the important personal touch from the start! I could not recommend you enough! Thank You so much! Vanessa

John Draper - Patricia Ann Draper

Posted on December 22nd, 2016

My wife, Ann, passed away on 27 November 2016. The servive I, and my 2 sons, received from Townsend Moore was second to none. Their attention to every detail was perfect and the consideration they showed at this very sad time for us was outstanding.
The funeral passed without a hitch and I would have no hesitation in recomending their service to others.

Paul Dykes - Dykes Family Reference

Posted on December 14th, 2016

My father passed away recently Townsend Moore Funeral Services was outstanding from our very first contact and until well after the funeral their service was absolutely first class.
They were not only extremely reliable and efficient, very important elements around one of the key events we will experience in life; it was also the respect, genuine sincerity and the helpful advice given personally by Chris to any enquires; this was so supportive to the family during such a difficult time.
The whole family were made to feel as if Dad’s funeral was the most important event in the world and totally personal to our and his needs. Chris and his team were outstanding and made the whole event feel very special.
All the people involved including the florist, the Humanist Celebrant, drivers and staff at the Leadenham site were very professional and incredibly helpful and thorough. I would like to thank all of them for making the service run smoothly. As well as being totally first class we found them to be very reasonable on the costs for the excellent service they provided.
As a family we would highly recommend Townsend Moore Funeral Services

Dear Chris & Company
I would like to express the biggest thank you for all your support after my fathers recent passing. With no experience myself in dealing with the process I found Chris Townsend to be the most supportive, helpful, willing, thoughtful individual, ensuring nothing was missed and enabling a personal cremation and subsequent internment of ashes.
I highly recommend Townsend Moore, no hidden costs, total honesty and outstanding customer service.
I will always be thankful.
Kind regards Clare Rowbotham
