    Dear Robert and Jane,

    I just wanted to say a very big thank you for last week. On such a difficult day, your respect, sincerity, understanding and kindness was hugely appreciated. Your personal service helped us give my mother in law a very dignified and honourable service. We didn’t know what to expect of the day and what was needed to be done but you both gave us direction and the strength.

    Once again, many thanks. All the best in the future, Jazz xx

    Dear Robert and Jane,

    I just wanted to say a very big thank you for today. Your warmth, kindness, generosity and sincerity was very much appreciated on what was a very difficult and emotional day for my family.

    Your respect and consideration to our needs was very comforting and the grace shown by you both ensured that the day was memorable for the right reasons and helped to mark the passing of my father with a very dignified and honourable service.

    Wishing you both the best and hopefully, we’ll back with my kids on a more happier occasion.

    Kind regards,
    April 2019

    Today me and my 2 children along with a few close family members bid a final farewell to my husband by scattering his ashes on the River Medway. I can’t thank Bob and Jane enough for making this experience a memorable one. They were professional, kind, friendly and provided great service. They made me and my children feel comfortable and consoled at all times and we knew we were in safe hands. Thank you for being so understanding and doing everything the way which made us happy. We had the most peaceful and beautiful farewell and everything was really appreciated.

    Last June, on a beautiful sunny day, my Mother, Husband and my 2 teenage sons went out on the River Medway to scatter my Father’s ashes. It had taken us a long time to decide what to do with my Father’s ashes and the whole experience was so beautiful and peaceful that this confirmed that we had taken the right decision to ask Bob and Jane to help.
    They were both so welcoming and lovely throughout the whole experience. The boat was clean and comfortable, and we were all given the opportunity to go onto the top deck. We were given the time we needed to say goodbye to my Father and were not hurried in any way. i would like to thank Jane and Bob for all their help and advice.

    “Today we went out on the Medway to scatter ashes. Jane and Bob were very accommodating and showed particular sensitivity in the matter. The boat is lovely, both inside and out, and it is well kept and tidy. Jane was very attentive to our needs and, following the ceremony, Bob was kind enough to allow us onto the top deck where he offered information about various local features on the river. We would recommend the service offered. Dr B

    “The level of service we received was excellent. The boat is beautiful and they were really welcoming, professional and very accommodating to our requirements.

    They were very kind, respectful and understanding of our loss. I would highly recommend this service to anyone thinking of scattering their loved ones ashes into the river.
    I did not really have time to grieve for my mother since I had to worry about organising her funeral and by using this service it allowed me to have the opportunity to say goodbye to her properly. Thank you “
