Customer feedback for our Ipswich funeral directors:

I first chose Gwinnells because I saw on their website that they had silver hearses and limousines.

From the first phone call I made to them I spoke to a lady called Pauline she guided me through everything with so much care she made me feel at ease.

On the day of the funeral everything was perfect, it was dealt with dignity and humour.

Thank you everybody from Gwinnells - I can’t praise enough.

Our true gratitude cannot be expressed in a few short lines.  Many thanks to the professional team at R Gwinnell & Sons for guiding us through a very sad and confusing time following the death of both parents in early February 2018.

The support and advice received helped ease the Cremation of both Philip & Barbara.  Despite the very bad weather conditions all went to plan in a professional and dignified way.

Many heartfelt thanks,
Nick & Ellie Graham March 2018
