Just a little something from my brother and I to thank you all for our Mum’s funeral. You made a sad
time for us much easier to deal with. Mum’s funeral was beautiful. I have had many people ask who
did the funeral for us. Your way of just handling everything is very special.

Just a note to say thank you to everyone for the kindness and understanding, shown during the funeral arrangements for my Husband. A special thank you to Tara Snedden for the service. Everything was perfect.

Kindness & understanding

All staff On behalf of my family, i would like to express our sincerest thanks and appreciation to you all for your compassion and professionalism following the recent loss of my late father. The help and support provided made a sad period all the much easier to deal with. We are most impressed by the excellent services provided.


Organising or planning for a funeral is one of those tasks that no-one likes to talk about let alone do. Two things made it easier for us to deal with the sad occasion of my father’s passing. We put a funeral plan in place and we used Welch & Sons. From walking us through all the details of the funeral plan, to making sure everything went smoothly on the day. Welch & Sons dealt with every single detail, providing a professional, compassionate and sensitive service throughout. Using their local knowledge and expertise in providing a tailored service at a reasonable price, I can highly recommend them. Thank you Welch & Sons for making a difficult time a little bit easier to get through.

Planning - Mr C. French, Herne Bay

On behalf of myself, my family and our friends, I would like to thank you and everyone at A. Welch &
Sons for the outstanding service you provided for my wife’s funeral.
I realise that, as funerals are what you organise daily, they would always run smoothly. However, I
would like to thank you on a personal level, for the compassion and care that you showed
throughout this very sad and emotional experience. Your team on the day were most helpful and
respectful too, and we thank them as well.
You also put us in touch with the lovely Tara Snedden, an independent funeral celebrant. I must say
that she has been thoughtful, compassionate and efficient from the word go, keeping in touch with
me on an almost daily basis. Everyone at the service thought that she was an excellent celebrant.
She is a credit to her profession, and we thank you sincerely for your recommendation.
So I must finish by saying a big thank you again for what you did for us, because you did it in a very
professional manner whilst keeping everything on a very personal level. This was so very much
appreciated and in fact needed at such a traumatic time.

Outstanding service - Mr T (Herne Bay)

Than you so much for organising my Dad’s funeral. Everything ran so smoothly, exactly how we wanted it, we didn’t have to worry about anything. Thank you doesn’t seem enough!

Unbearable day made easier

I just wanted to get in touch to thank you and everyone at Welch & Sons for all your
guidance, support and the planning and execution of a really wonderful service for Dad.
Ashleigh was the perfect person to lead that service and she set the tone exactly as we had
hoped. We really felt it was a fitting celebration for our Dad and your help in getting us there
is appreciated by everyone.
From the initial phone call where you gave me such helpful advice, to chasing around
hospitals and right up to the day itself. Everyone we dealt with was wonderful, respectful and
bent over backwards to support us during a difficult time. There are no words to truly express
our gratitude, but I would hope that this isn't the first time you have had such feedback.
I was recommended Welch & Sons through a friend and I am pleased to say that, should I
know anyone in a situation where they need your services, I would wholeheartedly suggest
that they get in touch with you.

Wonderful service for Dad - EC

Just a short note to express the appreciation of the whole family and myself for the sympathetic and yet wholly professional service we received from your team at the funeral of my dear Wife. it was such a comfort at such a time of deep sadness. Thank you.

Sympathetic and yet wholly professional service - Mr M

My sincere thanks for all your help and advice during what has been for me, a very difficult time.

The burial of G’s ashes yesterday I found, strangely enough, far more moving the service at Barham and yes I had a few tears, it was the last thing I could do for him.

The drive to Barham through Grove Ferry and Wingham was a trip down memory lane, which seemed to me to lessen the feeling of loss.

With your help, I carried out all of G’s wishes, Thank you Tim.

A trip down memory lane - SR

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your family firm in providing us with such pleasant and thoughtful arrangements for the funeral for J. Your strict adherence to detail made everything that happened on the day go like “clockwork”. Your help and understanding, guided us gently through everything, and with the help of the Reverend. H.S, the day up to Barham was wonderful. It was the send off for J that we wanted, thanks for that.

Pleasant and thoughtful arrangements - VK
