Here is what some of the families have said about Andrew
As I said today, many thanks for leading the service and the words that were said, that Dawn and I could not say, to show how we felt for the love of our son, Danny bringing comfort to all . Colin Marsland, Suffolk (July 2020)
Thank you so much for conducting the service this morning and reading our chosen pieces so beautifully. We felt very well looked after and the service, even just for four of us, was perfect and just right under your direction. Anna Wolfenden, Suffolk (July 2020)
Andrew thank you so much, you were brilliant and made a very difficult half hour for us all, shine. We had a wake and you were mentioned a lot, across the board everyone was in agreement. Great job, well done 👍 John Wells, Suffolk (July 2020)
A huge thank you for yesterday - it was a lovely, personal, weepy at times (not unexpected) service, which I think, and hope, was set just right. I did manage to listen to everything you said, I tried really hard 😀and I love the mosaic idea. Carol Hobson, Cambridgeshire (July 2020)
Just want to say a big "Thank You" for your excellent work helping to put Pauline's funeral service together. Although we were only able to have a small number of people there because of the Covid-19 restrictions, everyone was very pleased with the content and presentation. Your attention to detail was much appreciated and the collated service details you sent me afterwards have been very useful to send on to those who were unable to attend. Lesley Webdale, Norfolk (June 2020)
A very big thank you for your role in Mum's funeral. We all felt that somehow you knew her. It was a true, family occasion and I particularly liked the idea of mosaic memories; pieces being put together and in time making a larger picture. That was inspirational. There were tears but I think that good memories and quiet laughter made it a happy experience for us all. Susan Lewsey, Cambridgeshire (June 2020)
After losing my aunt during the easing of lockdown, we were only allowed a small ceremony for 10 people by the graveside. Andrew gave a wonderful service showing the right balance of compassion without being too sentimental. This summed my aunt up perfectly! It's never easy making the right choice for this type of event however, if you're looking for a celebrant that can portray the deceased in their true light, then Andrew's your man! Trevor Ilott, Norfolk (June 2020)
Thank you once more for the wonderful picture of Dad’s life that you told, all the family were very pleased with the whole service it really was excellent.
Steve Brady, Suffolk (June 2020)
Thanks very much for today, with your help we got through what was a very difficult time for us all. Your kind choice of words did Mum proud and the little touches of humour helped us all laugh as well as cry.
We appreciate your help in planning the ceremony and your words of advice. We all thought the day went well giving Mum a dignified and respectful send off. Thanks again very much. Darrell Newman, Suffolk (June 2020)
We would like to thank you so much for such a beautiful service for our mum. Everyone commented on how lovely the service was.
Once again thank you so much. Lucy Antliff, Suffolk (June 2020)
Thank you so much for leading my nan’s funeral. It was as perfect as it could have been. You did an amazing job. Nicola Hooper, Suffolk (May 2020)
It's been a privilege, on behalf of the family, and myself, to liaise with your good self for the funeral service of my father. I have had many comments back that the service was very nice under these difficult circumstances of our time, and I thank you for all the hard work you have put into the celebration of life.
Peter, Suffolk (May 2020)
Thank you very much you made it so lovely. It was such a relief as I had been very anxious about the day. Everything was so professional and had a lovely warmth to it and no one felt awkward. I am very grateful to you Andrew it was perfect. I think it was one of the nicest services in such dreadful times and with such time limits that could have been achieved.
I was very appreciative as it was very important to have someone like yourself to bring people that were not together, together, so your job to me was vital and your delivery was exceptional. Heather Welch, Suffolk (May 2020)
Thank you for this and thank you so much for the lovely service for Val. Both we who were at the service and everyone watching it on live cam really appreciated seeing and hearing it. You did Val proud. Janet Blows, Norfolk (May 2020)
Thank you so much for taking the cremation service for John, on Tuesday. It was just how I imagined it to be, calm, soothing, and reflective. Of course, it was sad just the few of us there, but the webcast helped enormously for the family who couldn’t join us. Anne Pallant, Suffolk (May 2020)
The family would like to thank you for conducting Yvonne's service yesterday, we all feel it was a fitting tribute to our mother’s life. John Law, Suffolk (May 2020)
Just to say a huge thank you for making Mum’s send off so special. We all appreciated the lovely service which could not have been better even had it been in church. Lynn Diaper, Suffolk (May 2020)
Thank you for this Andrew. I know that people may find the fact that there was so few of us difficult, however we thought that the service was beautifully intimate. The observers all had good things to say about the service too. It was a lovely service and we could not have asked for more from you.
Elysia Depledge, Norfolk (April 2020)
Thank you for sending your script. It is a lasting memory of Margaret’s funeral which you did so kindly and professionally. Gordon Baynes, Suffolk (April 2020)
We just wanted to say a massive thank you for the service yesterday you so kindly delivered for Sean Clarke at the Bury Crematorium. We could see you had taken the time to read about Sean and his life and get to know the person he was. That was the service we all wished for and indeed what Sean would have wanted. Debbie, Daniel & family, Suffolk (April 2020)
Many thanks again for the wonderful service on Monday. I know it gave great comfort to many people. Bev Ryan-Hawes, Suffolk (April 2020)
I just wanted to thank you so much for helping our family give Michael a lovely send off. It was a very hard day, but your help made it more bearable.
Pauline, Brian and the Johnson family, Essex, (April 2020).
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the lovely service that you gave for my mum and for your patience when you visited at my father’s home. Your words made the day special and, as always, it was the little touches, the jelly babies and liquorice allsorts, that made it so memorable.
Rosemary Moss, Suffolk (March 2020)
Andrew led a beautiful funeral service for my mum last week. He showed real understanding of Mum's character and life and the whole service was tailormade to honour her and helped us all to cherish special memories and to be thankful for the long and happy life that she led. Many people after the service said how well Andrew conducted the service in his calm and compassionate way. Some said it was one of the nicest funerals they had ever attended. We would wholeheartedly recommend Andrew to anyone seeking for someone to take care of their loved one's funeral. They will be able to rest assured that Andrew has everything under control and will make it a very special and fitting occasion. Sue & Ray Keeble, Suffolk (February 2020)
I am sure that what was said will bring comfort later in the days ahead for all .
