Alison Ann’s kindness and support on Monday 27/4/20 and over the last few weeks, has been immeasurable.
Her natural ability to understand, guide and reassure is truly a gift.
The care in the preparation for the Service meant it was delivered to those present with compassion, sincerity and a little lightheartedness, which lifted spirits in the way I wanted. She read my Eulogy with a ‘feeling ‘ for Mum, which she took from our numerous conversations, and used it in her beautifully spoken delivery.
Her care and commitment for my wellbeing started from the moment she was introduced to me, from comforting words, a good listening ear - to reaching out to me on the day of the funeral while on my way down from Scarborough- above and beyond! She also composed and printed a beautiful order of service, which she hand-delivered to each of us with grace and a word of comfort on the day.
She brought a calm and reassurance to a service conducted under the difficult restrictions that we are all under at present. Truly professional and compassionate, comforting support at a difficult time, especially under the extraordinary times we all find ourselves in.
Alison is an exceptional lady- sometimes people come into our lives for a brief time for all different reasons- but only a few leave a lasting impression. An impression of kindness, compassion, humility, and laughter - this is Alison!

I first met Alison Ann in 2016 as a funeral arranger for Hemel Funeral Directors.
I worked with Alison on many occasions. I can only praise her, not only for her professionalism, compassion, knowledge and kindness but for her honest, caring and thoughtful manner when supporting families.
She would always be on hand to offer a listening ear, not only to the family's worries or concerns, but also any that we as funeral directors may have had.
Her time management, efficiency, and organisation were of an exceptional standard. I would always request her services primarily when making funeral arrangements. On numerous occasions, I received feedback from families post services and they would also speak very highly of Alison. The best way to describe Alison is simply -
one of the best in the business.
What a lovely person you are. A huge thank you from myself,
Karen and all the family for all your help as we couldn’t have
asked for anything more to give Ken the send off he deserved.
From the moment we met you, even heard about you,
we knew you had it. Your professional attitude, sincerity and heartfelt humour made us all the perfect fit. It was the perfect service.
Everyone felt it. Tadmans did us proud.
You working with them was the icing on the cake.
Keep doing what you do. You are awesome.
Thank you. God bless. You are our hero.
Love you. XxX
I want Alison to do my funeral.
I can't thank you enough for what you did today
under which were difficult conditions. Truly brilliant!!!
It was really good to finally meet you.
I must admit, not that I go to many funerals,
that this was the most entertaining one so far!!
Thanks once again.
Thank you so much for the wonderful service yesterday.
Also, thank you for all the work you put in to make it great.
Everyone, without exception, was very moved by the service
and thought how wonderfully you performed it.
Lots of Love,
Alison made the whole process of putting a funeral together a joy -
and there is only one chance to get it right.
She gave us all the time and help that we needed - nothing was hurried; nothing was too much bother. And, on the day itself, we felt in such caring and expert hands. The funeral became an entirely positive celebration of Harry’s life - and something completely unforgettable.
Thank you Alison, from all the family.
A very big thank you for making my Mum's day so special.
