"I am writing on behalf of myself, my mum, brother and sister to express our deepest gratitude for arranging the funeral of our beloved dad and our mum’s husband, Del Page.
From the very first call that I made to your office, I felt that we were in the right hands. Your staff couldn’t have been kinder, gentler or any more respectful. From coming to collect dad’s after he had passed away, to the visit with the funeral director, the service itself and finally helping to find and return my husband’s phone form the back of the funeral car! Every step of the way we felt looked after.
The company who printed dad’s order of service, Careprint, are probably the most professional and responsive printers I have ever worked with. They never made me feel as if I was being a nuisance even though we kept changing the proof. The quality of the final print is outstanding.
Although we are all broken hearted at losing our Dad and mum losing her husband, it made all the difference having Alan Greenwood Funerals gently guide us through this difficult time."
Karen Mulville, Pat, Matthew and Katy Page
"I would like to say a big thank you for everything. I had nothing to worry about, it all went so smoothly from the day of his death to the end of the funeral and in the circumstances could not have been better. Thank you so much.
I don’t have a great deal of experience in these matters, but compared to the other funeral directors I had to deal with, Greenwoods are the tops and you personally were a pleasure to deal with, you hit absolutely the right note."
"As a family we cannot thank you enough for all your care and support of us on the passing of our mum – Peggy Hart on October 19th and her funeral on October 31st. As we know from the past, you do a wonderful job and all the staff are so caring and compassionate. Carol you are a rock (dare I say Star!) as you guided us through so much and helped keep us on track.
The day went off so smoothly and well. Mum looked good and would have so enjoyed her last ride in the jag! Also she would have been pleased at Alan leading the way, as Dad – Bill thought so highly of him and always spoke of him in glowing terms when he was alive and said he was a great guy to work with.
Thank you, thank you, what more can I say. I just wish you had offices in Canada so when my time comes, I know I would be in such excellent caring hands."
Maggie & Mike Raftery (Peggy & Bill Hart’s daughter) and on behalf of family.
"I just wanted to drop you a line to say a massive thank you for everything you have done over the last two weeks.When I walked into Alan Greenwood’s on the 5th November I didn’t know where or how I was going to organise my lovely Mum’s funeral and the thought of it horrified me,you made a daunting job so much easier and were there to guide me all the way until the day of the funeral."
I can’t thank you enough for your kind words,thoughts and help during this very difficult time. Losing somone as precious as mum is very hard but you helped so much.Thank you for everything you have done for mum,myself and my family."
Sue, Mundy, Luke and Faye
"Lynn,Bruce and I thank you so much for the wonderful understanding and help you have given us over the past days.It has been a difficult time but made so much easier by your guidance. With your kindness we feel we managed to say our goodbyes to “Roger” ”Dad” and “Grandy” showing our love and thanks to him for looking after us so perfectly over the years."
"Thank you very much indeed for all your professionalism,support and guidance throughout the whole process involved in caring for my mother.
From the moment we met the staff at Holmwood Nursing Home until my collection of thank you notelets for my father to use I felt that everything was conducted in a most efficient and sensitive manner.I know that Clive spent a good deal of time with you and I was so pleased that we were able to have such a beautiful service very soon after the passing of our dear mother and wife. With thanks once again"

"Thank you for all your kind attention during the funeral of my husband John on the 24th May. The arrangements were so efficiently and sympathetically handled that it lifted a huge burden from my shoulders. I enclose a cheque in favour of the Alzheimer's Society in memory of my beloved John."
"Would you please pass on our thanks to the young lady who conducted the burial of Joyce Ashby last week. She was so kind to Jean my very elderly cousin especially on the ride back in the Limo taking us through Richmond Park and chatting all the way. We then went on to have a family picnic in Jean’s garden in the sunshine a lovely way to remember Joyce and the perfect day for Jean. Very many thanks from all of us in North Wales"

"The family would like to thank you and the whole team at Greenwood’s for your warm and professional service. We were delighted with your attention to detail and the relaxed but respectful manner of the Attendant and Bearers on the day itself. Many of our friends commented on the “dignity with lightness of touch” and said it was one of the best-organised funerals they had attended. It was certainly a very different experience from my father’s funeral twelve years ago, and we shall recommend you wholeheartedly to others."
