I want to give a big thank you to Christopher Snailham & Family Funeral Directors. When my Dad was at end of life treatment, there wasn’t any questions about who we were going with, I’ve heard so much about Chris and I knew he was someone I could trust, I wasnt wrong. He’s very patient, compassionate and just a warm person in general. Having someone you can talk to and rely on is such a big help during the hard moments of planning a funeral and grieving. Doesn’t matter how many questions you have or worries, Chris is there day and night, he goes above and beyond do to all he can. My Dads funeral went perfect and it’s all thanks to you Chris, you said I did my Dad proud but so did you as none of it would have happened without you. I can’t thank you enough ♡
