    How to find R. Gwinnell & Sons in Ipswich

    • Following the unexpected death of our mother Betty we contacted Pauline at the Ipswich branch. As I had a flight to Australia booked I had very little time to arrange a funeral. Pauline guided us through what was a most difficult time of ours lives' with a reassuring calmness. Nothing was too much trouble. Not only did Pauline make the necessary arrangements with supreme efficiency and speed but the funeral was everything my mother would have wished for and on the day was executed exactly as planned. We couldn't have asked for more. This was the first funeral we have ever had to organise but the worry was halved after meeting Pauline the first time. Thank you to all concerned.

    • I first choose 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,

      N & E. G., Ipswich
