I just wanted to say again a big thank you on behalf of all my family.
You have helped us through this awful experience and I thank you for your comparison understanding and professionalism.
It was a beautiful fitting send off for such an amazing well loved man, we later let off 100 balloons and the sun came out just at that time.
I know we all have a long way to go but we will all be there to look after Natalie and each other.
Thank you once again for all your help.

I have been meaning to get in touch to thank you so much for all that you did for us regarding the funeral of Adrian Thomson.
Your professionalism, kindness and approachability was fabulous. Thank you Amanda.
I don’t write reviews but had to on this occasion.
You often hear the saying “you get what you pay for” and this more often than not refers to something that is of a sub standard or low quality.
I admit that when I first approached Evelyn’s Funerals, that saying, and the fear of being new to bereavement did do the rounds in my head. This was primarily because they were so much cheaper than the usual suspects on the high street.
Unlike others I had contacted, Amanda Pink was totally transparent with her pricing, which I found refreshing as no one wants to be ripped off when they are at their most vulnerable. The saving was a massive £2k compared to the quote I had received from probably the oldest and most popular Funeral Director in Aldershot.
Being a bit OCD myself, I found it hard at first to let Amanda project manage the whole funeral, but I’m so glad I did. After her initial home visit, she organised everything from the Hearse, Limo, Pallbearers, Minister, Music, Order of Service & Collection Box.
On the day of the funeral the cars were gleaming and on time, the drivers and pallbearers looked immaculate and were polite and courteous throughout the service. They treated Dad with dignity and the utmost of respect when delivering him to his final destination.
Amanda took total control of the situation, first making sure everyone was seated and then making sure everyone had an order of service booklet. Derek the minister, who was recommended by Amanda was brilliant on the day. He had a fantastic tone whilst reading and singing, and transformed my typed eulogy into a great story.
I couldn’t have wished for a better send off for Dad. Thank you Amanda, all the best Brian x
P.s. If you are reading this and find yourself in the same unfortunate predicament as I did, don’t stress yourself out any further, just make that call, I’m glad I did.
Evelyn’s funerals have provided us with extraordinary support from beginning to end for my mother’s funeral. Everything was done with great humanity and compassion, as well as being utterly professional. Some of it is really tough, and we definitely benefitted from having met Amanda before my mother passed away. She accommodated our every request and helped us to create an amazing service for Mum, as well as handling all the (often unpleasant) logistics with a minimum of fuss. Every detail was taken care of – flowers, donations, a last minute request for a viewing, a recalcitrant doctor, the beautifully personalised coffin, the hearse and cars on the day, recommending a fantastic celebrant (Belinda Forbes), marshalling our friends and family into an overflowing chapel, the ashes delivered personally… everything. We could not have been better looked after, and I would recommend Evelyn’s funerals wholeheartedly to anyone who wants a professional and very human collaboration for making funeral arrangements.
A huge thank you for the love, care and great encouragement you are and have been.
Thank you too, to your guys who were part of the funeral service and proceedings at Jock’s funeral. Totally beautiful and your attention to detail so greatly appreciated.
The beautiful drive through town and laying of Jocks flowers, really the absolute treasure of all that you did to make the day perfect.
The coffin was stunning, your service amazing, love and God’s blessings to you Amanda and to your team.
Will always recommend your service, and when I go, if you are about, take it that you are in charge of the send off!!
Love to you
Its hard to write just how amazing Amanda and Adrian were because I could honestly write a book. From the initial phone call to the issues we had relating to coroners release and the cremation itself their service is quality with a captial Q.
The sincerity and warmeth shown to me and my family removed all awkwardness and demonstrated to us that there really are kind loving people left in the world and Amanda and Adrian were both that. The level of commitment they put in to making our brothers speciali day will remain in my memory forever. Kind warm loving special people thank you Amanda and Adrian from the bottom of our hearts.

We used Evelyn’s funerals for our son Neil’s funeral, we found them to be very reasonable on the costs for the service they provided.
The thing we liked about them was the fact that all their prices are displayed on their website and they do not pressure you into having things you don’t want for your funeral, you choose what you want.
The service we received was first class, and the compassion and dignity shown to us by Amanda and her team was outstanding. They made a difficult and distressing time much easier to cope with, I would thoroughly recommend them with no hesitation.
Thank you Amanda and the team at Evelyn’s Funerals. Alan S.
I just wanted to say a big thank you, for all your efforts on the 23rd. It was a very special day for us, a personal send off but still maintaining the traditions and dignity of a more traditional funeral.
What we achieved was only made possible through your support and guidance at that difficult time. it was much appreciated and would have no hesitation in recommending you,
I am so pleased we picked you, sometimes you just know something is right,
I was recommended Amanda and she really didn’t let us down. She helped us make a beautiful service and gave us such professionalism and empathy. As soon as I met her I knew my lovely mum would be in good, caring hands. I phoned Amanda a lot and she could never do enough to accommodate my worries or concerns.
Thankyou for everything
We would like to thank you for the help & support you gave us during & after Alan’s death.
It was so nice & helpful that you were able to come to us, as our children would never have been able to go to a funeral directors to sort out Alans affairs.
You went beyond anything we expected, meeting me & helping me to see Alan & your support & guidance for our children was amazing, even up to the last day by collecting our collection boxes & keeping them out of our site on the day.
We cannot thank you enough, the amount of people who came & said everything was so “Alan” says it all.
Once again thank you for all your help & support.
Amanda was very kind, patient & understanding. Everything was done so we had nothing to worry about.
The service was exactly what we wanted.
We cannot recommend them highly enough for their professional & personal service.
I just wanted to say a huge thank you for all of your help with Dad’s funeral. We absolutely felt that we (and Dad) were safe in your hands, and that although we had selected a low-cost option, no corners were being cut and everything was still being done properly. You left us with absolutely nothing to worry about, before, on the day or afterwards.
Your recommendation of Tony as a celebrant was definitely a good one, as he was a great match for us, and for Dad. Having decided to go for a colourful funeral, rather than traditional black, we thought that your purple fingernails were an inspired finishing touch!
We will definitely be back in touch when it’s Mum’s turn.
Thanks and regards,
On behalf of the Good family we would like to thank you for the caring and professional manner in the way you arranged for our late fathers funeral Mr Albert [Bert] Good.
You took the time and trouble on the various occasions that you met with the family, to ensure that all arrangements were in hand and you also were able to advise us on other aspects outside of your remit.
Finally on the day itself everything went smoothly as planned.
Many thanks, Dennis & Family
We cannot thank Amanda and Fiona enough for all they have done to help make Dad’s send off a dignified and memorable one.
They were always on hand to answer the questions we had, however big or small, with patience and respect.
A very well organised company with good competitive prices.
We wish Amanda and Adrian the best of luck, with Evelyn’s Funerals, and also all best wishes to Evelyn. I remember a great couple of hours chatting with her recently. A charming lady.
I would just like to say that when my mother passed away fairly suddenly, I was left completely mentally numb and being in debt when she passed away, nothing was put in place for such an unexpected event.
After the shock of visiting a few local and national funeral directors, I.e costs, a friend recommended Evelyn’s Funerals to me.
After envisaging a funeral on a shoestring, Evelyn put together a package, that ensured my mother had the utmost of dignified funerals, and I know she would have been proud of me, and I will always feel so emotionally endebted to Evelyn, and i wish Angela and Adrian as much success in the business that Evelyn has so tirelessly and compassionately built to today.

Garrey thank you so much for your kind words, we will continue Evelyn’s work with the same dignity and compassion that she always provided for her families that turned to her for help.
