“I am so pleased I chose Barrells to take care of my Partner’s funeral. Stuart was fantastic… caring, professional, easy to talk to and nothing was too much trouble. He also found us a celebrant that did a wonderful job of reading our tributes and conducting the service. Thank you to everyone at Barrells for your excellent service and for helping me through a really difficult time!”

“Laid my wife’s mum to rest yesterday and I can’t praise Barrells highly enough. Everything they did from start to finish was absolute perfection and extremely professional thanks to all staff from barrells yesterday at the service.”
“The folks at Barrells looked after me very well when my brother died. I live overseas, but that didn’t make a difference, Stuart made sure I was kept informed and followed up on things that I was getting no response to. Even when he was required to be isolated and out of the office, he kept in touch and made sure someone else took care of everything.”
“I chose Barrells to organise my mothers funeral arrangements because they were a local firm who had a good reputation. I cannot speak highly enough of their services. Obviously it is a difficult time for friends and relatives but they treated everybody with great respect and dignity. I would recommend their services.”
“Barrells arranged the funeral of my late uncle in the latter half of this year. From the first meeting they were professional, kind and considered in all dealings and this never wavered. Their commitment to treating people with dignity and respect is exceptional. We are a small, rather eclectic group of family members, some of whom have had extremely challenging lives, and yet they accommodated each of us without judgement and we were never made to feel anything less than deserving of their care. For my mother, who found her brother’s death especially difficult, it was as restful and peaceful a process as it could have been, for which I am very grateful. Simon Thetford was our point of contact and he struck the perfect balance between practicality and sensitivity on all issues from the financial side to dealing with the coroners office. I really cannot recommend him, and the company, highly enough. Thank you.”
“Our Father was cared for by Barrels and the support and kindness was above and beyond anything we could have imagined, the utmost respect and care not just for our Dad but for us on the day made all the difference, we can not recommend Barrells highly enough.”
“Many thanks are due to the services given to the members of the family of Ernest Carter whose funeral was held today in Portchester. We are so very thankful for James Martindale whose calm expertise and assurance gave us all such peace of mind and helped in providing dignity to the small band of us in saying goodbye.”
“We are eternally grateful for such an amazing and beautiful service your team delivered on Friday.
Your calming supportive guidance through one of the most traumatic times in our families life has been amazing.
Mum in the chapel of rest looked exactly like she was just asleep but looking as glamorous as ever. You had followed all the requests I had asked for, even repainted her nails. Thank you for liaising with the florist to ensure the coffin was dressed how we wanted it with the garland around the sides. The cars and support from all the team on the day was perfect with everyone commenting on how wonderful it was to have the doves at the end of the service. 5* Service.”
