"What a lovely place and so peaceful"

"Dear Chris I just wanted to thank you and your team for making what could have been a difficult day on 16th August, into something very peaceful and dignified for our family and me. You made such a difference allowing us to have a stress free day, both the burial and the church service. Everything went so smoothly and this was much appreciated by us all. It was a perfect little service at the burial ground. What a lovely place and so peaceful It was a lovely suggestion taking the flowers to the church and then back here. A lovely idea which I wouldn't have thought of. The flowers were much admired by all so please tell Diana that she did really well. They were colourful and perfect and Charles would have loved them. They are still lovely! It was so good to know that we could ring you anytime and from the start, I always felt confident that things would go well. Thank you so much for all you did. It was much appreciated by me and the family. Kind regards"

"Extremely professional, caring, kind and compassionate"

Townsend Moore recently arranged my mother's funeral and were extremely professional, caring, kind and compassionate. They helped me every step of the way and made, what initially seemed like a very daunting prospect, actually very simple, as they just dealt with everything. On the day, the funeral ran without a hitch and the service was very moving and beautifully delivered by Chris Henley. Everyone involved treated us and my beloved Mum with deep respect and I cannot recommend them highly enough -I felt that she was in good hands the whole time. In addition to their kindness and compassion they were extremely efficient, dependable and very reasonably priced and took all the worry out of a day which was always going to be very difficult. Thank you Townsend Moore for everything.

"I would recommend Townsend Moore to anyone"

I would recommend Townsend Moore to anyone needing funeral services. The professionalism, empathy and respect they showed to us all in my mum's passing was the best. The care and respect they showed my mum was second to none. Chris and Dorothy are really lovely people, also Peter who conducted my mum's funeral did it with so much care. Townsend & Moore really provided our family with what we wanted, not extra things we didn't need and at a very reasonable price, well below other funeral services. I cannot praise them all enough. Thank you so much for all your support at such an incredibly, raw time. Everyone at Townsend & Moore made it that little bit easier knowing they took care of everything. Forever grateful for your compassion. Joanne and the Williams family.

Patricia Sutton

"Beautifully Handled Repatriation"

"My brother Stephen passed away suddenly in February 2019 whilst on holiday in Tanzania. After his body had been delivered to Grantham, we met with Dee and Peter to plan his funeral. The arrangements for the cremation, although complicated were handled beautifully and their attention to detail exemplary. On the day, their cars were in immaculate condition, the drivers and staff prompt, smart and courteous plus the flowers provided were just right and exactly as requested. At the crematorium our family bearers of the coffin were helped and advised in their task and additional staff took the names of those attending as requested by our family. Their celebrant Gemma took the service in a most respectful manner and supported our family speakers who were giving their eulogies in a most caring manner. The day after, Dee came back with me to the crematorium and made sure I had my brothers ashes to take with me back home to Yorkshire where he will be laid to rest. Townsend & Moore provided the kind of professional and personal service which is rare today and I was so glad to find it still exists. I thoroughly recommend them."

Martin Alexander

"Townsend Moore gave an excellent service"

"Townsend Moore gave an excellent service and I would have no hesitation in recommending them to friends and family."

"Everything ran like clockwork and the service on the day was wonderful"

"Having been so pleased with how well my Dad's funeral went i had no hesitation in returning to Townsend Moore when my Mum passed away. I was disappointing April was no longer there, but need not have worried, as Dorothy looked after me just as well. Everything ran like clockwork and the service on the day was wonderful. Thanks very much to all involved in making a sad time as painless as possible."

"I was so very pleased with the service"

"I was so very pleased with the service we received from Townsend and Moore for the funeral of my daughter Coralie, who died suddenly. Especially Dorothy who was so kind and helpful, treating me like a friend, whenever I visited her office. I also want to thank Peter Allen the Civil Celebrant for reading the eulogies as none of the family were able too. The only thing I would have liked was someone to have taken down the names of the many people who attended. My daughter owned her own business and a lot there were her clients whom I did not know. I would recommend Townsend and Moore as a first class service. Many thanks."

Jean Cook

“Exactly to Plan”

“We used Townsend Moore for my father’s funeral, this is the first one we have done and didn't know what to do. We were contacted by Christian who put our mind at rest and walked us through the whole process from start to finish. The funeral went exactly to plan and we were extremely satisfied with everything, from the order of service, the service itself, and even down to the florist. And the after arrangements for the ashes to be interned and the stone, Christian did everything for us. I cannot thank them or recommend them enough for everything they have done for us at this difficult time.”

“Thoughtful and Caring”

“Thanks to Chris, April, and the team, who arranged Mum's funeral in a thoughtful and caring way. Nothing was too much trouble; they kept us informed throughout the whole process. Thanks also to Peter for a lovely service. Elaine and family.”


“A big thank you to Christian and April and all at Townsend Moore, my mother Annie had her funeral arranged by them; it was a very professional, caring, and thoughtful day. They do care and they also keep costs down, at this sad time for all, you don't want to feel you have to spend more than you can afford, we didn't. Thank you.”

“First-Class Service”

“It gives me great pleasure to thank you and your staff for arranging a first-class service for my wife's funeral. The friendly atmosphere and help I received was second to none, I like to thank your wife who made Irene look so beautiful. Again many thanks, Edmond.”

“Thank You”

“Well, what can we say, when we stumbled through your door, upset after a bad experience elsewhere, walking into Townsend Moore was so comforting, welcoming, and kind. April’s professionalism and empathy made our sad situation bearable. Both of you took our strain. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, you helped us to make sure Adam’s wishes were fulfilled. We hope your business in Grantham goes from strength to strength, you deserve it. All our love, Judy and Amy Nagy.”

“High Standards of Service”

“I am pleased that my wife's friend Linda Rhodes knew all about your excellent firm in Leadenham and had even visited and could tell my wife all about it. Sharon, Mike, and myself were all impressed with your high standards of service, commitment, and conscientiousness as well as your understanding and consideration and attention to detail throughout. I am sure this approach has affected all your staff and persuaded high-calibre people like Peter to work with you. We are still receiving compliments about Peter’s style, manner, and approach. Please convey to him the tenor of these. Very many thanks for you all for producing a faultless service which did the occasion full justice. Thanks again - yours faithfully, Malcom.”

“Excellent Arrangements”

“My family & I would like to say a huge thank you to Christian and his team for excellent arrangements for John’s funeral. Christian’s compassionate and caring way he had helped us through this difficult time was extremely generous & helpful, allowing our grandsons to pall bear their granddad into the crematorium was a lovely gesture. We were also very impressed with Peter Allen for the great job he made of the eulogy, order of service, & closing words; thank you, Peter. This just leaves us to say we would highly recommend Townsend Moore Funeral Service to anyone looking for a low-costing service with all the care & compassion you could possibly ask for. Thank you, Christian.”

“A Tremendous Job”

“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. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Townsend Moore funeral directors and the excellent service they provided at such good value. Many thanks again.”

“A Fantastic Service”

“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 cannot thank you enough for all the help you gave us as a family. The civil celebrant, 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 Gemma’s daughter, Abigail, 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 Townsend Moore 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. Thank you once again for a fantastic service.”

“Lovely Service”

“Thank you, everyone, for making the funeral of my Dad go smoothly. Especially Christian, for all his support, and Peter for the lovely service.”

“The Very Best”

“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 is the very best funeral directors.”

“Helpful and Friendly”

“Just to say a huge thank you for all your support at a difficult time. Thank you to Chris, April, and Peter, for your guidance in what we had to do. Very professional, great customer service, helpful, and friendly. Kept us up to date with what was going on. It was a lovely service, one I know dad would have been proud of. Townsend Moore are a fab company. One that I would highly recommend. Kindest regards, Claire.”

“Very Happy”

“Dear April, I would like to thank you for how well you looked after me 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.”

“Absolutely Perfect”

“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.”

“Excellent Service”

“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. 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. 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 when 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.”

“Respectful, Professional, and Kind”

“We would like to thank Townsend Moore Funeral Directors for their help and support whilst arranging the funeral for our Father. From the first phone call to your company and throughout the process, we appreciated Christian's professionalism, kindness, and guidance shown to our family in achieving our chosen service. We have had nothing to worry about as Chris dealt with every detail. On the day of our father's funeral (yesterday), Chris and each member of his team looked immaculate. They were respectful, professional, and kind. Thank you from our step mum, my sister, and myself for your first-class service for a realistic price tag. We would definitely recommend you with complete confidence.”

“No Hidden Costs”

“We would like to thank Chris for his kindness and professionalism when arranging our dad’s funeral. We would have no hesitation in recommending Townsend Moore funeral services to others. We found them to be very reasonably priced with no hidden costs. Thank you again for making this difficult time more bearable, kind regards Alison (Geoff’s daughter).”

“Thank You So Much”

“Where do we start.... We were so pleased to have found Chris and his team, your personal touch was just what we needed at this difficult time. We feel we left our mum in very safe, caring hands, knowing she would be looked after in such a beautiful setting too. You always kept us up to date with every detail and were always there at the end of the phone putting us all at ease. Thank you so much.”


“Wish to thank Chris and Dee also the team, can't thank you enough for such a thoughtful funeral that you finished off for our dear friend that didn't have chance to put the finishing touches to the funeral she wanted. Was dealt in a very caring and thoughtful way which Chris, Dee and their team did extremely well! We cannot thank you enough for all your support and generosity! Highly recommend you all.. what a fantastic bunch of people to work with at such very hard times! Such warm-hearted people, thank you again!”

“Made Us Feel at Ease”

“Dear Chris, thank you so much for everything you did for mum’s funeral. From the moment we met you, you made us feel at ease, always in touch letting us know how things were going. On the day of the funeral, everything went to plan. We would recommend you to anyone, it's been a pleasure to meet you. Gordon and Wendy Suddaby.“

“Professional Services”

“To Chris, Mick, and your Team. 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. Kind Regards, Dave and Lucy Turner.”

“Caring Company”

“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 wife’s 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.”

“Personal Touch”

“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, i.e. 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.”

“No Hesitation in Recommending Their Service”

“My wife, Ann, passed away on 27 November 2016. The service 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 recommending their service to others.”

“Very Special”

“My father passed away recently, and 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.”

“Always on Hand”

“Dear Chris, thank you for the very dignified way you handled our father's passing on. Always on hand to arrange access to The Chapel Of Rest - even on a Sunday - and offer advice in planning the day itself at St. Chad's Ch., Welbourn. Highly recommended. Mike Downs.”

“Compassion and Sympathy”

“I wish to express my sincere thanks to the Townsend Moore Funeral Services team for the discreet and dignified way in which they managed my wife's funeral arrangements. The floral display was beautifully done, the service was conducted with compassion and sympathy for both young and old in the congregation, and the eulogy was delivered most eloquently. The whole family were entirely satisfied with the way the funeral was directed.”

“Thoroughly Professional”

“Dear Mick and Christian, you managed my late husband's funeral with sympathy and understanding, dealing with all the details in a clear and sensitive way which helped me and my family get through an extremely sad day. With your friendly and thoroughly professional manner, we would highly recommend your services and cannot thank you enough for all you did. Kind regards, Pat Bainbridge and family.”

“Very Grateful”

“Dear Chris, Dee, and team. Thank you for looking after my father and for your attention to detail and sensitivity with all the funeral plans for my late father, Mr Ronald Hurst. You and your team were very professional, the setting and surroundings were very comforting to my mother and we will always be very grateful to you and your team for all your care. Thank you again. DInah Fuller, daughter of the Hurst family.”

“Total Honesty”

“I would like to express the biggest thank you for all your support after my father’s 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.”

“Our Heartfelt Thanks”

“Dear Mick and all staff at Townsend Moore, my family would like to extend our heartfelt thanks for the caring, professional support and guidance you gave us after Mum's passing. Not only was the funeral itself handled flawlessly and with great sensitivity, but the support we received during the planning made a difficult time so much easier. Yours sincerely, Louise Bennett.”


“The family and myself are most grateful for the efficient way it was conducted. Many people attending commented on the ceremony and were not slow at passing their favourable comments. Please inform your staff of our comments. We thank you all. Yours sincerely, Philip Mason.”
