W.E Pinder & Son an independent family run Funeral DirectorsW.E Pinder & Son an independent family run Funeral Directors

"When my husband died just a few days before Christmas, I could not have found a better undertaker than John Pinder. He was very professional, sensitive to my needs and that of my family, and provided exactly what we wanted - a dignified, respectful and somehow joyful send-off for my husband. I have already booked my own funeral with W.E. Pinder & Son"

Mrs Mary E Trevena

We cannot thank John Pinder enough for all his invaluable help during the very sad time of losing our sister Lesley, he is professional at all times and nothing is a bother, it is lovely how a man in his profession has such an approachable warm manner. Lesley was very specific in her funeral plans and John was paramount in making them happen, for this we will be forever thankful.

I had no previous experience or knowledge of what I had to do in my situation. I am so pleased that I chose Pinders Funeral Directors as they took all the problems that arose,  worked through the options I had, and sat down with me to help me feel comfortable with my decision. Within a day I felt as though they were part of my family and this made me feel very assured that my wishes would be upheld. My husband was given the highest respect and was lovingly cared for. Jaquie was our dedicated member of the team and I felt very comfortable with her dealings with us. John Pinder was always on site, and made himself visible, even coming to my assistance when my vehicle broke down, this made me feel confident in the fact that they really are a family run business. If you are looking for a caring, professional funeral director who will give your loved one the dignity and respect they deserve, yet never forgetting the loved ones left behind then I can highly recommend W.E. Pinder & Son

Fantastic company! After the support given to my family especially my mum who practically moved into pinders while my dad was there almost 2 years ago. ..i have nothing but gratitude for you all. You made a very difficult time bearable and for that we are forever in your debt. So much to say but not enough space. Thank you John and everyone xxxx

Perfect funerals carried out for my late wife and previously our late son. They really are kind, wonderful and caring people. Very professional in every aspect. Cannot praise them enough.

John Frankland

From the first time we met John to arrange pre-paid funerals for my my parents he was very professional and caring. Unfortunately we had to call on John's services sooner than we expected when my father passed away suddenly. From the first phone call to John after the death to the after care we received, he was excellent in making what was a very sad and difficult time easier for the family especially mum. Thank you John.

Kathryn Brown

John and his staff are the most caring, considerate people you could care to meet. The service they provide is personal and your needs are the most important factor to them at a very distressing time. I have no hesitation in recommending W E Pinder, a five star service.

Brilliant from start to finish. Couldn't recommend John & his team more highly. Although I don't want to see them again for a while !!!!!!

David Boyne

John Pinder has provided me and my family with excellent service. He pre-empts your needs, takes care of everything and inspires confidence in the whole process. The funeral had the perfect balance of solemnity, gravitas and good humour. John and his company is simply a class act. Thank you for everything. Neil McCallion

Neil McCallion

John was able to set the right tone for the whole process, was thoughtful in his communication, helpful and caring to both my Dad who'd died and to those of us left behind. The dignity he afforded Dad when he walked the hearse from the house a significant distance to the main road was not something that was discussed but was a real comfort. The normal world should slow down or stop and be respectful of this significant moment and the dignified procession was beautifully carried out. The flag for the coffin was a lovely touch. Thank you

Cath Basilio

The family found Mr John Pinder to be a caring and compassionate man who acted with professionalism at all times. He took care of all our needs and looked out for me at my most vulnerable. I will never forget his kindness and thank him for all his help and support during this difficult time.

Joan Bailey

There are no words to describe how beautiful mums funeral was, we are so happy with the service we were given. John went above and beyond to accommodate everything for us and took alot of stress and pressure from myself and my father. Nothing was too much trouble. John is a lovely, warm hearted man too. Very kind, caring and genuine.

Charlene Jackson

Would definitely recommend W E Pinder, faultless. Helped make a difficult time a little bit easier by ensuring we had all the information needed to make the right decisions. I especially liked the family feel the business had to it, made you feel that they had a bit more care and compassion for your loved one in the most difficult time.

Zoe Owen

W.E Pinder & Son Ltd took great care of our every need. The service provided was first class in every way. Examples of this would be excellent communication, providing support during a very difficult time, great attention to detail and the feeling of knowing that everything is being taken care of in the best way possible. Mr Pinder is a kind gentleman, who is not only professional at all times but also is kind, caring and understanding. I would highly recommend W.E Pinder & Son Ltd Myself and the entire Family are very grateful for everything that you and your team did for us. We all wish you the best of luck in the future. Josh

John and the team could not have been any more considerate and professional. Prior to the Funeral every single aspect for the day and many related events were most thoroughly covered. On the day John and the team were absolutely wonderful. They helped us through the day from start to finish. It is a difficult time when a loved one dies. Pinders took away all the anguish and worry around the arrangements for the Funeral. They were absolutely first class. I cannot recommend them highly enough. Thank you John and your team.

Michael Helme

Absolutely wonderful service from start to finish. W E Pinder take the worry out of funeral arranging and make everything very easy indeed. Their kindness and general demeanour is wonderful and I can't recommend them highly enough. I was delighted with every aspect of their work, on all three occasions that I used them.

Sian Peacey

From the moment that we met first John we knew that we were in good hands. This was the first time that we had lost someone so close to us and John understood how tough it was to deal with, especially trying to arrange things so quickly after Mum passed away. He was very professional and helped us the whole way through the process from the administration and formalities (that you don't know are coming) through to deciding on the most personal and emotional details at this difficult time. He made it so easy and simple with his knowledge and organisational skills that it took a lot of the stress away so that we could focus on grieving and putting together our own tributes to make it as perfect as possible for Mum and all of us. The funeral was a celebration and everything went perfectly. Thank you John.

Dean Richardson

The staff from WE Pinder were marvellous - it felt really personal. Additionally the extra people, the florist, the celebrant and the caterer - all superb.

Sarah Jones

Excellent customer service! Really kind and caring family run business which counts for a lot these days! Thank you.

Julie Penrose

Just perfect. It had all the required ingredients and more: Professional, Sensitive, Listening, Caring, Consultative, providing Leadership when required. Pinders carried out their huge responsibilities impeccably - enabling Family, Friends and Contacts to concentrate on what was important to them on the day: their last opportunity to say farewell to our father, Frank Johnson. Thank you Pinders, you did everything so well from start to finish. Michael Johnson, son and co-Executor with Steve Johnson.

Michael and Steve Johnson

W.E Pinder & Son, was recommended to me by a dear friend. From the initial contact with John and throughout, we received a sincere, caring and professional service, well beyond our expectations which helped greatly with our loss. I have thanked my friend for their initial recommendation and will continue to recommend W.E Pinder & Son to anyone who requires a complete stress-free professional family service. Thank you Trevor & family of the late Pearl Wood
