I am so glad I found Ivor Thomas funerals.
I am so glad I found Ivor Thomas funerals. At a time when stepping up to the role of events planner is simply beyond reason, being steeped in grief, disbelief and exhaustion, knowing what to do next and how to do so, and how to do so in the best way possible for your loved ones memory, is one of life’s greatest challenges. Just feeding yourself and responding to the umpteen demands from other loved ones awaiting updates is almost impossible.
Without an existing funeral plan for my loved one, I was feeling my way around in the dark, whilst also conscious that my father would require very specific rites and treatment which might be tricky to accommodate.
I looked around at funeral homes and received cursory quotes from others, but Mark spoke to me like a human bereaved, and elicited my needs in a straightforward but compassionate way. No question or requirement was too difficult, and honestly I’m sure we were quite unusual!
For shorthand explanation and to help people searching for a similarly open-minded funeral directors in South Wales, I was looking for a funeral home which could accommodate the needs of the more, lets say “pagan” variety. This is not their espoused niche, but they were absolutely ready to accommodate in a completely non-judgemental way. Trying to accommodate such needs usually means going further afield to a specialist business and also spending several times the amount of money, neither of which was possible. And Ivor Thomas made it unnecessary, giving dad an honourable, respectful and compassionate send off.
This is a business steeped in values of inclusivity and transparency. They meet individuals where they are in their journey and whoever you are, whatever your background, you will be welcomed and treated as the unique human being you are. I add this because people searching for more straightforward services will also find this funeral director provides every customer with a human-centred and respectful service.
I do hope that they go from strength to strength because they are superb.
With warmest wishes and thanks to all at Ivor Thomas
Danu Stratton-Kent and all the family.
