Honour Your Loved Ones Exactly As You Wish

The reason I went back to Mears is because of the excellent service received the first time. I felt the Mears team looked to provide a personal service. Having used the company for two separate events, I genuinely felt each funeral was treated with the upmost care and attention and tailored according to the family needs. Five stars and thank you.
