We would like to say a big thank you to Bradley and his team for the most helpful and professional service you could wish for. We always knew our Mum was in good hands and nothing was too much trouble. We felt looked after and most of all cared for , they guided us through all the rules with ease and made a difficult time much easier. We would not hesitate to recommend you. Thank you Lyn Reade on behalf of the Danbrook family

Scott dealt with every part of my dads funeral with efficiency and utmost respect. Nothing was too much trouble he kept in touch with everything and really did go above and beyond to sort out a very unfortunate matter that was out of their control. Would highly recommend.

Michelle, Luke, Trevor and all the team gave us the best service and always with kindness and consideration. They took trouble over every detail to get the job right and to make sure we were comfortable. Everyone at Adams was professional and nothing was too much trouble, the team went beyond our expectations. We felt our father had been truly honoured. Adams are an outstanding firm of funeral directors, I thank them for their first class service and I absolutely recommend them.

A R Adams are the best Funeral Directors I have ever dealt with. Scott and the team dealt with my brother-in-law's funeral. They were caring and professional from the moment I phoned for arrangements to start. Thank you to everyone at A R Adams you made a difficult time easier.

I used Adams for both my parents’ funerals. I instantly felt a bond with the staff and they made it quite clear to me that I could call them 24/7 and no problem was too small or too silly. If it was worrying me then they wanted to know straight away. I felt my parents were safe in their hands and both funerals were beautifully carried out. It is such a relief to be dealing with a company you can trust and that goes above and beyond what you imagine you will receive by way of service at such a difficult time.

My sweet mother passed away 4 years ago now and my grandmother before that. And Adams were more than caring, made me and my brother feel that we were the only family who lost loved ones. So so kind, mother wanted horse and carriage and they obliged in every way. The funeral was a perfect send off for my perfect mother. Thank you Adams and co

A R Adams...5 star service, particularly from Zia who led the cortege and was respectful, involved and compassionate towards our beloved Mum and us her grieving family. Why would you consider any other Funeral Directors...they are the best; kind, professional, discreet. Grateful thanks to all.

Donna, Luke and colleagues at Thorpe Bay were so kind, caring and thoughtful. They supported us with the funeral of my late mother. It was a tough time made bearable by their respectful and compassionate professionalism. Donna’s people skills were very impressive indeed and nothing was too difficult for her to arrange. Working from a smart phone only without a computer/printer wasn’t easy for me but she enabled us in our hour of need. Her recommendations for ancillary services were also spot on. Luke’s calm and respectful presence on the day was also much appreciated. It was the family approach with the personal touches that made me realise that I really must write a review for them, something I very rarely do. They may not be the cheapest in town but they are worth far beyond every extra penny, we realised that truth within the first few hours. We were truly grateful for their services - Maxine

You took great care of our father and indeed our whole family 10 years ago. Would not hesitate to recommend you. And indeed we have done. Thank you

Adams carried out the funeral of my mother then later my father. I have left a note with my Will that they should arrange my funeral when the time comes. I can give no firmer recommendation than that.

From the first time we walked through the door, these wonderful people took care of our family and our dear mum with compassion, kindness and empathy every step of the journey. They gave us utter confidence that everything would be perfect and helped to give our mum a beautiful send off. Our family are truly grateful for their support, we shall never forget everyone's kindness.

A.R. Adams could not have done anything more. Not only in the way they cared for the family but also how they accommodated all of our requests on every occasion we’ve had to use them. Nothing is to much trouble.

It's been sometime since I used the services of Adams funeral directors. I've been meaning from day 1 to leave this review but better late then never. We opted for a direct cremation and could not have been treated any better than if we had gone for the most expensive option. From the start the staff were so very supportive, treating us and my late husband with enormous respect, dignity and kindness.
