To Jayne, Mike, Victoria and all the BCM team
Thank you for taking care of our family through this difficult time. Your team couldn’t have done anymore to help us, you made it feel like we were dealing with old friends, rather than people we had only just met.
We cannot thank you enough and wish all of you the very best for the future.
With all our thanks and love.

Hi Vicki, how are you?
I just wanted to say thank you for all your help and attention during the last month. I saw a customer review on your website and so I also wrote one in the hope that it will give customers the information and personal account they might need to make a decision when they are going through what we went through with dad:
I came across BCM as a result of visiting the charity website Natural Death Centre. It said that BCM was one of few, if not no other, funeral directors in Bristol who would allow the client a huge deal of control with the ability to tailor the service the way you want for your loved one. This couldn't have been more true. Vicky, Mike and the team listened to our every wish and made sure it happened. They were fully supportive when we turned up with last minute ideas and they were always ready at the end of the phone for anything we needed. Vicky was really informative and so lovely every time I spoke with her, while Mike was the kind, gentle and supportive presence I needed on the day. We held my Dad's service in exactly the way we wanted and we really felt that we did him justice and made him proud on the day. BCM's flexibility and willing allowed this to happen. Thank you Vicky and Mike for helping us to make a sad day as wonderful as it could be.

Thank you so very much for arranging such a lovely send off for dad (Terry). It was exactly what we wanted. Your help and kindness made the process so much easier and thank you for the information about how to keep his ashes.

Thank you again!

P.S. I am having lots of wonderful comments regarding the funeral and yourselves.

Dear Vicki,
I just wanted to thank you for all your kindness and support during a very sad time for our family. Loosing mum so suddenly was such a shock to us, and at a time when our emotions were all over the place, you were able to offer such genuine comfort to us. The arrangements for her funeral were first class and everything ran so smoothly, that we were able to give her the send off she so deserved.
Thank you so much. : P H

Dear Vicki
Just wanted to say a big thank you for all your help and support.
Losing D. under such difficult circumstances, has been very upsetting at times for all my family. I have found your kindness genuine and your support has helped me to have the strength to organise his funeral. Finally saying goodbye to D. and laying him to rest, has been a long time coming and I wanted it to be perfect for him and it was – you helped me with that !! Thank you.

Me and my mum would like to say a huge thank you to everyone involved in my Father’s funeral arrangements on Friday 22nd.
Nothing felt like too much trouble for you all and we are eternally grateful for making such a difficult time so much easier to cope with.
We will definitely be recommending you to others who unfortunately find themselves in a similar position to us as the whole process was so much easier to deal with knowing that you all were there.
We hope you all have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
Yours sincerely,

Hi Jayne (and BCM team),
Just wanted to let you know that Mum’s funeral yesterday was exactly what we had hoped it would be. Everyone we have come into contact at BCM did an amazing job.
In addition, Maria’s flowers were perfect and the celebrant, Tina Stamford, delivered the perfect Eulogy and managed the ceremony perfectly.
You guys are exceptional at what you do and have helped to provide all of us with some closure that will allow us to move forwards without Mum.
Thank you all again

Dear Vicki,
We would like to thank you for your sympathy and kindness in helping us arrange Nigel's funeral. We greatly appreciated the advice you gave us in choosing Kevin Cattell as the Minister to lead the service at the Crematorium. He contacted the service with great empathy and all those present thought that the right balance was struck. I have written to him to thank him for his kindness.
As we were not local and did not know our way around Bristol, your help in finding a Florist and venue for the Wake for us was a God send. The flowers were lovely and the venue for the Wake was superb.
Would you also please pass on our grateful thanks to all the members of BCM for the dignified manner in which they took care of Nigel and helped make the service at the Crematorium a special one for us.
With our very best wishes, warm regards Al. and D. M.

Dear Vicki
Thank you for all you did to make the arrangements for Heidi's funeral so easy to cope with and for your quiet efficiency on the day that meant everything went so smoothly. From the moment we walked through your door to the time you left us at the crematorium we felt totally at ease with you and your colleagues. Nothing was too much trouble for you, and you were all, at all times, kind, compassionate, understanding and accommodating. That meant a lot to us at a very difficult time.
In accordance with Heidi's wishes we asked for the cheapest, simplest funeral you could offer and you gave us exactly that. You never once suggested that if we paid a few pounds more here, or a few pounds more there, it would be a better funeral (as sadly one other funeral director did), and yet I cannot think how it could have been improved upon. Quality was never compromised and we could relax knowing that everything was in your very capable hands. We could not fault a thing - thank you so much.
With our love, gratitude, and very best wishes,
K., D., O. and B.

To the staff of BCM, especially Vicki,
Just a small thank you on behalf of my mother and my family on the way you treated us and more importantly our dad. From the moment we walked in to your 'shop' we felt at ease and comfortable at a very difficult time. You made it easy for my sister to view dad and she said he was so peaceful.
The men who drove us, well all of you, just made things a little easier.
And although recommending a funeral parlour is not really the 'in thing' we most certainly will be recommending you, and my mother bless her will be wanting you to do her justice too.
From the bottom of my heart, I thank you, Debbie xx

Hi Vicki,
Following on from our conversation yesterday I would just like to thank all involved in Adam's funeral on 22 November.
I found BCM provided an excellent and sympathetic service from my very first call to you. The staff that attended on the day were professional and respectful and could not have done more for us Nigel was very professional and approachable and seemed to know instinctively what the family wanted. You yourself have been brilliant in keeping me up to date with the arrangements and prompting me where necessary.
It is so refreshing in the world we live in today to find a company like yours that genuinely cares. I would have no hesitation in recommending your services.
Thank you again,
R. C. H.

To Victoria and team,
In my life I have been involved with organising my parents and my wife's parents funerals.
At the time this was difficult, but after 61 years with my wife this has been the most difficult for me to come to terms with.
L and myself are so pleased we made contact with your service. You have shown empathy and compassion throughout. You have assisted us to get through this awful time. Words are somehow difficult to find and to come across how we feel, but we sincerely would like to say a huge thank you to you and your team.
Many-many thanks,

Dear Jim, I would like to express my thanks, acknowledgement and satisfaction with your services you have provided jointly with your BCM FS colleagues and partners (crematorium) to V during the last day.
Losing V it had been a shock for me of what had happened. I had had very difficult mission to arrange the last journey of V to her home country, to her mother.
I had had no experience with funeral services and customs in the UK.
During our meeting, you guided me appropriately to arrange all the steps for V to leave Bristol. You performed very dignifying and professional funeral service in the crematorium today.
I am glad that V was in good hands.Your service was with full dignity and respect to her life and to sadness of our family.
On Thursday, we are flying to Prague. And on Sunday (27 Feb), we will have a challenging task to hand-over the urn to V mother.
I am glad, that I have to be personally with V during her last journey to her home country.
Thank you. J.
