QUOTE: Charles Cowling, author of the Good Funeral Guide says: "To almost anyone charged with the task of arranging a funeral, choosing a funeral director can be very difficult because they all look pretty much the same. But they're not. Some, a precious few, are truly outstanding, and Colin Fisher Funeral Directors is one of them.
"The Good Funeral Guide has recommended only those funeral directors who meet the most stringent criteria. Some of them are highly traditional, others decidedly alternative. Colin Fisher Funeral Directors has been chosen because it abides by the highest professional standards, offers all the choices available, provides outstanding personal service, gives clients all the time they need and represents superb value for money.
For far too long the work of funeral directors like Colin Fisher Funeral Directors has gone unrecognised by all but a lucky few. People want to do their very best for their loved ones when they die. They deserve the very best funeral director."
QUOTE: Colin Fisher says: "My pricing structure is kept as low as possible. I always promised myself that I would not get too big for my boots." I offer extremely good value for money – and at no sacrifice to the care I offer. I treat everyone the same, have all the time that you need. I am there for you 24/7. for example, if you want to come and visit the person who has died, if it's at all possible you can stay all day if you want. I have a kettle and a microwave at your disposal. "I always say to the client, never be afraid to ask for something if it is important to you."
