Testimonial #29

I would like to say a huge thanks to Chris and Your Choice Funerals for providing an extremely professional and compassionate service for my mum’s cremation yesterday, Tuesday 7th June. From the moment we walked into the office I felt at ease and being in quite a vulnerable state, never once felt pressured into making choices I didn’t feel right about. The whole journey from start to finish was very professional, Chris remained in contact. All the costs were written down on paper, no hidden charges and Chris was also able to suggest a suitable florist who provided a beautiful arrangement for mum’s casket. I would also like to say a huge thanks to Malcolm, who prepared my mum’s eulogy and managed to ask us all the right questions to provide a heart warming, funny and true life story that will remain with family and friends forever.
Thanks again Chris for taking away the stress and worry and making everything run like clockwork. Tracy Richardson in loving memory of her mum Joan Carr xx

Testimonial #25

On the 7th of march my partner passed away we went to various different funeral parlours in south shields.when I came across your choice I was a bit dubious because I didn’t know whether it had a chapel of rest.but on asking the undertaker I found out that it had.
So as everywhere I had been to get a price on a simple funeral was going to cost at least £3842……where as your choice does a simple funeral for under £2000, the undertaker (christopher) was really nice, very helpful…..he even came in on Sunday tea time to open up the parlour so I could see my loved one…he done a really good job making her look at peace which made me at peace which I will be forever thankful….I would highly recommend using your choice funerals as the whole experience went without any hiccups

Highly Recommended
The 5 star reviews on here are fully deserved. Chris provides a quality service with a personal touch you would struggle to find elsewhere. Everything about the arrangements was first class from start to finish. He has provided all the help and advice we needed and ensured that everything went exactly as planned. Due to his attention to detail nothing is left to chance and we are very thankful to Chris and his team, the flower supplier and the vicar.

Testimonial #19

We would like to thank Chris on behalf of the entire Gibb family, for making the funeral service of our a mam a very easy and stress free process. We came across Your Choice Funerals online whilst getting quotes for a funeral service. Chris the owner of the business couldn’t of been been more helpful and polite, he was able to give us a price over the phone which might i say was miles apart from the rest. His service’s are to the highest standard along with his office and chapel of rest. We are so pleased we found Your Choice Funerals as Chris and his staff made the grieving process that much easier for me and my family, We would certainly recommend this company to anyone. Thank You.

Testimonial #16

Chris’ services are second to none and I’d recommend them to anyone. I dropped into a few shops for quotes and I was surprised how much cheaper Your Choice was than the others. To be honest the cheap price made me a little unsure at first, but I never should have doubted myself. Chris is extremely thorough in every step of the process and no request is too much. You can tell he’s been doing this for many years and it really helped during our difficult time.
Thanks for everything once again Chris.

Paul knew he was going to die and had picked Your Choice Funerals and also the package he wanted. St Clares contacted Chris Sample and nothing was too much trouble for him he was professional to the end. Obviously at 52 we were devastated but Chris handled to situation with sensitivity and care and helped us every step of the way.We wanted to see Paul at the Chapel of Rest and anytime to suit us was ok with Chris.The day of the funeral was handled with great dignity and care and I would not hesitate to recommend Chris. Thank you so much Chris for making this heatbreaking situation bearable I really do appreciate it.
