Independent Reviews for for our Catford Branch

5 star review

 Esengul Azimkar - 30th July 2018

Highly recommended, I understand it's their job to assist in the process at such an awful time, that's what your paying for...but, Mears family funerals catford and also Mears repatriation not only did their job but went up and beyond, I felt they were also a shoulder to lean on, I will never be able to thank them enough, Everything can be done under one roof and what they can't do they can help find.

 Jouce Edwards - 23rd July 2018

I cannot thank Mears Family Funerals enough for their compassion, professionalism and understanding during the most difficult time of my life. They showed me the most utmost respect and patience from planning of service to burial of my beloved mother. Highly recommended, never to be forgotten. A very big heartfelt THANK YOU.

 Tracy Hogbin - 16th July 2018

This is the second time I have used this funeral service company. I must say they are very considerate and sensitive to your loss all through the procedure and after. I thank Dianne for her compassion and professional manner at a difficult time, and the celebrant Sally who did an amazing service putting together all my notes to give a wonderful picture of our Mum’s personality and life.

 Ian Davis-Molyneux - 6th June 2018

Excellent service provided.

 Michael Mondesir - 23rd May 2018

I’d recommend Mears to everybody based on my family’s experience of their courteous and professional service. From first contact with Dianne to the day of the funeral with “the two Alans “, everything went smoothly and my family were treated with the utmost respect and care.

 Andrea Hollis - 13th May 2018

We would thoroughly re commend Mears Family Funerals; Dianne Gillard, the Manager of the Catford Branch, could not have been more helpful; she completely understood how we wanted to celebrate our mother's long life, was very friendly and efficient in all her dealings with us and did not try and persuade us to have extra "trappings"; everything ran smoothly according to plan on the day - she even managed to arrange for the sun to shine!

 Michelle O'Keefe - 4th May 2018

Having never been through this experience before, I’ve must say Yvonne and Dianne at Mears on Southend lane were none other than AMAZING CARING KIND AND THOUGHTFUL. We as a family cannot praise these two wonderful ladies enough. Michelle O’keeffe

Mear's were so helpful at a difficult time and guided the family on the best package to suit the occasion.

This is the second time I have used Mears at the Southend Lane, Catford branch. From the initial meeting with the branch manager Dianne, the service was exemplary throughout and made a difficult time a little easier. I would not hesitate to recommend them, Alan Burroughs 

 Debbie Mills - 17th Nov 2017

After the first phone call to Yvonne and Diane we felt a massive sense of relief, we knew we were in safe hands. They were professional & caring from start to finish, there wasn't anything they couldn't help with which was great because this was the first time we've had to arrange a funeral. I can't recall how many times we called them because it was so many. The actual day of the funeral went without a single hitch, the team led by Alan were fantastic. We're so grateful to the Mears team for a beautiful service which our lovely mum deserved. Thank you Debi & Danny


  Alan Watts - 10th Nov 2017

Best service ever thanks very much.


Dianne and her crew were faultless. We felt they were part of the Family and felt our great loss. We are very grateful......


Dianne and the team were fantastic through-out. It made a very difficult time a lot easier. There was compassion, patience and friendly service. Thank you so much Louise Phelps


Arranged and carried out the funeral in a professional but caring manner.                   


We asked Mears Family Funerals to arrange our dear mum's funeral recently. Lisa McDermott was fantastic and provided a supporting, caring, compassionate and respectful service. Lisa 'looked after our mum',(who was also a nan and great nan), with utmost respect. As a family we thank her and her team dearly for their involvement in making mum's day so special and memorable. We would not hesitate to recommend their services.
