Stu Garrow

We recently lost a much loved family member. Being as we lived 170 miles away we relied very heavily on Silletts to make the arrangements for her funeral. Silletts dealt with everything for us with minimal fuss. Everything was done in a caring, compassionate, accommodating and professional manner.
We are so thankful for their assistance during a very difficult period for our family.

We used Sillets for my Dads funeral. They made everything so easy for us in what was such a stressful time. From the initial meet to the big day, everything was taken care of. So professional. They gave my Dads the send off he deserved. The best by far. Thank you for making a hard time as easy as it could have been.

Robert Beresford

Loosing a loved one at any time is one of life most challenging experiences.
Trying to find a good Funeral Directors can be just as hard, Silletts, Fulfilled and beyond all our needs. They were Empathetic throughout, and nothing was to much trouble.
Paul and Joe Sillett gave my family everything we could have wanted to make this experience as personal as possible.
From sourcing our Wicker Coffin, to fulfilling all the family requests, including matching the Celebrant (Gemma Rooke) perfectly with what our late daughter would have wanted.
We feel that 5 Stars does not do this service justice.
At your most difficult time in loss Silletts will provide the compassion that you are looking for. Thank you on behalf of the Family.

They listened, they understood, they did what we asked & more! They were funeral directors for both my Grandmother & Grandfather. Two very precious family members whom we all loved. Silletts were so wonderful. I would highly recommend them.

John Harding

Dealing with the death of a relative is never easy, the more so from a distance of 260 miles away.
At times like this you need a professional and compassionate service to guide you round potential pitfalls and offer constructive advice. Silletts Funeral Directors provided this and more. They were a pleasure to deal with and were prompt in communicating. I and the other members of my family have no hesitation in recommending them.

Greenhalgh Family

As a family at the most difficult and emotional time of losing a parent, this family funeral service were amazing. Their sensitivity, caring and professionalism is and was second to none before, during and after the funeral. Thank you from us all 😊

Lynne Cummins

Our family have used Silletts on a number of occasions. We have always found them to be very professional but very approachable. They show respect and support through a difficult time. Nothing was to much trouble. I love the fact that it’s a local family run business with lots of their family working on a day to day basis. Reasonable prices you won’t get ripped of like you do with some bigger funeral firms. They also can arrange funeral plans if that’s something you want to do. Excellent service from Silletts
Thank you
Lynne

All your family helped in some small way to make what was a hard time so much more bearable thank you (For the late Joan Howarth ) Lorraine and family.

I realise a funeral is something that most people don’t wish to think about until the time comes but if you are reading this in that difficult time I really cannot recommend Silletts highly enough.

DEANO BWFC

I first contacted silletts in January regarding my dad. He was Ill in hospital and we had been informed he was at end of life..
The lady I spoke to was compassionate and immediately put me at ease regarding what would happen should dad pass away while in hospital.
She said even if we decided to go elsewhere for our funeral arrangements that I could still contact her if I needed someone to talk to..I decided after that chat that should the worst happen that silletts would be my choice..
Sadly after a brave battle dad sadly passed away in early May..
We contacted silletts and arrangements were made with Adam who I have to say is an absolute credit to his parents.
He was reassuring to me and my brother in a very difficult time even though he is a young lad..
The flowers, the celebrant, and the day went beyond expectations..I would recommend silletts to anybody .
Every member of the team I came into contact with were superb..
Thank you silletts
