I’m so thankful to have found Poppy’s, their way of dealing with this extremely painful and emotional time was incredibly natural and compassionate. They helped us create a very simple but beautiful and personal occasion. It was just what my mum would have wanted.
We chose to use Poppy’s Funerals as they seemed to be more human and certainly more modern. We were delighted with the way the whole day was managed. Couldn’t really find any fault and would be delighted to recommend them to anyone.
I have read and totally agree with everything that has already been said about Poppy’s Funerals . They are compassionate, professional , caring. Without Philippa l would not have been able to say good bye to my Mum in such a way that reflected her life and personality. The whole process was intimate and sensitive and l feel gave me and everyone who came on the day a sense of joy for the women, Rose, that we loved. They can be no higer recommendation . Thank you all at Poppy’s.
Kate was terrific, kind, sensitive and very helpful in arranging exactly the small intimate family service we wanted. We were able to arrange for a beautiful bespoke design on our cardboard coffin and when my
Mum saw the flower spray she thought they looked fantastic. We felt cared for and special from the moment the telephone was answered and we could not have asked for more.
I was so glad I turned to Poppy’s Funerals when my mother died. Right from the very first interaction the staff could not have been more gentle and caring, and managed that very difficult act of allowing me both to choose what I wanted and guided me where I needed assistance. Philippa and her colleagues managed to combine unobtrusive assistance and genuine support. My mother’s funeral service requirements were not straightforward, but they catered for every aspect with great efficiency and grace. The closing chapter of my mother’s life was dealt with dignity and humanity. I cannot recommend them highly enough.
I wasn’t absolutely sure what I wanted for my aunt’s funeral, but I knew what I didn’t want. I knew the music I wanted to play, I knew who I wanted to speak during the ceremony, I knew what I wanted to say.
I had looked at several funeral firm’s websites but none of them grabbed me. I was given a recommendation to check out Poppy’s. I phoned. That was it. One call, one conversation. Job done.
From beginning to end the team were totally supportive. I phoned and asked this. I phoned an hour later and asked that. No problem, just happy voices on the end of the phone, happy to talk, happy to help. Kate, who fielded my first call to Poppy’s, thank you so much. Philippa, who picked up all the odds and ends phone calls, thank you too.
Then I went to the office to sort out the details and I met Isabel. She was wonderful. My previous experience of funeral people has been dark, sombre. I told the girls at Poppy’s that I had expected a dull November evening, but what I actually got was a bright spring morning. Not in any disrespectful way, just… right!
Through the build-up I had support over the music, the choice of celebrant, the how/what/when, everything seamless and perfect. On the day, Isabel was there, my superstar. Doing what needed to be done, saying what needed to be said. Seamless and perfect. After the service everyone remarked on what a nice service, what a nice goodbye it was.
If you have read through to this point and you’re still not quite sure about Poppy’s may I suggest that you switch off your head and follow your heart. A goodbye should be personal and meaningful and memorable. Poppy’s will help you make it all of that, and more.
I was very lucky in making Poppy’s my first call. Everything was perfect. I interacted with some wonderful people from the Poppy’s team. To all you, thank you, thank you so much.
I am so grateful to the pragmatically compassionate women at Poppy’s. They made the process so smoothe and very humane.
A huge THANK YOU to all the team at Poppy’s for making the whole process of arranging a funeral so straightforward and compassionate.
Poppy’s Funerals helped to make my beloved father’s funeral very special and meaningful for our family and friends. We received so many lovely compliments on the day – and ever since. Isabel and the team helped to make the painful process of saying goodbye to Dad/Grandad as positive as possible.
Every word of this is true. I’ve been there to see the premises on a visit from America. I am on the board of the National Home Funeral Alliance, an organization that promotes natural, hands on, in-home care after death. And Poppy’s will help with that option. The staff, the grounds, and Poppy herself are just as written.
