With over 20+ years in Policing across the UK I have had numerous experiences with undertakers. When I was informed that my father had passed away, my greatest concern was that of the undertakers. I need not have been so worried. Frank Painter’s & Sons were recommended and I am so glad we chose them. Their tact, sensitivity, respect and decency was second to none from the moment they arrived. Ben is a credit to the firm and his family have accommodated many requests above and beyond what is probably considered the norm. Painter’s will now always be the first call I would make where friends and family are concerned. I cannot thank them enough.



Dear Alan,

On behalf of all our family, I’d like to say ‘thank you’ to you for all the help and guidance you gave us for my Mother’s funeral last month, and also the manner in which you and your team conducted things on the day.

In the days before the funeral, several people asked which funeral directors we were using. When I told them Frank Painter & Sons, they all made very positive comments on their experience or knowledge of your company. I am happy to say that you certainly lived up to (and actually exceeded) the expectations their comments created!



Dear Ben,

I just wanted to say thank you very much for you professionalism, your caring & compassionate manner and all that you have done, for us. You have made such a difficult time just that little bit easier to bear. I have felt so confident that in your hands all would go well with P & Mum’s funeral. You have not rushed me and I so appreciate that. I have lost two of the most important people in my life, thank you for looking after them for me.

S & J


On behalf of my Mum, D, I would like to express our sincere thanks for all your help, guidance, advice and support following the death of my Father, B.

The care, compassion and understanding you showed us during a very traumatic and painful time was very much appreciated. Having to deal with the Coronavirus restrictions and the constant changes was handled promptly and professionally.
At all times we felt fully informed and it was a comfort to my Mum that she felt my Dad was in good hands. The work to prepare for viewing in the chapel of rest will forever be appreciated as it was a lovely last memory for my Mum and us.
I understand it is your profession Jen, and you deal with these situations every day, but you made a huge difference to all of our family and we will be forever grateful. Thank you



Many thanks to all of the Staff but a special big thank you to David, our funeral director. David has been amazing and has helped us every step of the way. His kindness and his genuine care and thoughtfulness have been outstanding.
Frank Painter are an excellent quality, family firm and one I would highly recommend.



When, on 3rd March 2019, after having lived, loved, and cared for P… I did not know whom to choose, to entrust P to for what would be the necessary next step. I could not have known that having chosen and contacted your company, of the warmth, care, respect, support, and of your gentle, professional manner throughout that has been so thoughtfully given and so gratefully received. I felt that P was safe and rested, and my time with P, whilst in your care, gave a sense of calm. My heartfelt thanks to you.
