Unfortunately I lost my mum very quickly, not knowing the first thing about the stages of when someone passes, Forseys were amazing, he Funeral Directors who came to collect her, they showed such respect and grace (Paul & Jason). Sally Lock was assigned to our family, from the moment I met her she showed impeccable sympathy, empathy, professionalism and a genuine care for us as a family. She was so kind through every step, always a message or call away, she offered advice and small sentiments that she thought our mum would have loved. I cannot understand how perfect she made every aspect of her service for us, considering she never ever met her. Sally was so supportive from the first interaction we had with her, on the day of the funeral she was just so gentle and empathetic. I cannot even put into words how wonderful she is as a person, she genuinely helped me personally in a time when I felt so alone, taking so much strain off of me. A true credit to Forseys. It takes a special person to do her job and help families in their time of need, but it takes an even more special person to show such empathy and love in a professional way. I will forever be grateful for her help and Forseys as a whole. I cannot recommend them enough. Thank you for everything!

Dear Mrs Hurford - thank you so very much for taking the time to write such a detailed note for us, and specifically Sally. It really does mean a great deal to us that you have taken the time to write this, but also that Sally and the team were able to help at such a difficult time for you. We feel Sally really embodies what we are about and I am glad to hear you say as much. Rest assured that I have passed the above on to Sally and the team. Kind regards, Sam Forsey.

Dad’s wishes were that on his passing he wanted Forsey & Son to conduct the proceedings and we can totally understand why. From the initial contact, very late evening, Sally showed such empathy, kindness and reassurance at a very difficult time. The compassion, care, respect, professionalism, co-ordination and guidance afforded by Sally was outstanding. Sally was there on hand throughout the planning, making a distressing time much easier to handle. Sally and the team supported us magnificently through the day ensuring that Dad had the smooth and beautiful send-off that he deserved. Thank you so much.

My Auntie passed away recently and we decided as a family we wanted to use Forsey’s and sons as the undertakers. From the moment we stepped into their doors, we were made to feel welcome. We had the lovely Sally looking after us. She was so kind and patient, especially with my father. You see my dad use to be an undertaker and sold the business to Forseys years ago and obviously and a good understanding of the job, and shared his experiences and stories of his time as an undertaker. Sally was so kind and gentle with him, and patiently listening to his stories, that it made me feel even more emotional that someone would have this kindness and not ask them to move on and discuss the funeral arrangements that we were obviously there to discuss. Being an undertaker is a challenging job and Sally is clearly destined to do it with her excellent listening skills and kind heart and professionalism. She made the right move to change her career path. In terms of the service we received at Forsey’s, we could not fault a thing. Sally was there on the end of the phone or email if we needed her. We were able to do everything in house. From ordering flowers, and designing the service sheet, to choosing the coffin and the type of service we wanted. Organising a funeral for a loved one is emotional and challenging when you’re all over the place, and knowing everything was taken care of was a great relief, especially when the day went so smoothly thanks to all the team. The Knapp Family.

To all in the Knapp family, thank you very much for taking the time to write the above - it means ever so much more because it has come from yourselves who have actively been involved in the trade and indeed, would have dealt with my Grandfather or even Great-grandfather when we took over the Knapp family business. We are heartened that you came back to us for your Auntie's funeral and that Sally looked after you so well. Thank you once again, and please pass our family's best wishes onto your father and entire family. Kind regards, Sam Forsey (Brian Forsey's grandson)

I cannot recommend Forsey and Sons highly enough. From the moment I met Sally I knew I was in safe hands. Communication was spot on, and she has been there with me throughout the entire process, from when my Dad first passed away, to the final burial of his ashes many months later. I am so very appreciative of the level of care, support, professionalism I received, at a time when I felt very out of my depth and alone. Thank you.

During such a difficult time Sally was a great support to us all, including my husband Colin who calmly organised his own funeral which we all knew was only a few weeks away. There was a great rapport between them with respect and humour intertwined, making this very difficult time less agonising than it could have been. Her coordination of all parties involved; vicar, organist, cemetery, programmes, music, the ‘much loved’ tribute page all went smoothly. Her care and compassion for us all, both in the planning before and after Colin’s passing was outstanding. On the day itself her professionalism ensured the Funeral went to plan and we were able to give Colin the send off he deserved. All staff on the day were very well turned out and put us at ease with their kindness and calming influence.

I was most impressed with the calm, efficient and professional way Forsey and Son carried out my wishes for a recent funeral. I felt totally confident with them from the first moment I dealt with Forsey and Sons and would be happy to recommend them.

Sally Lock and the whole team at Forseys have been wonderful at this difficult time. Her correspondence has been efficient and immaculate, only bettered by her perfect performance on the day of the cremation and the kindness she extended to us, face to face. We are so grateful for her very considerate and compassionate professionalism. No one looks forward to this kind of event, but if and when we have to do another event like this, we will not hesitate to return to Forseys.

Cannot speak highly enough of the outstanding care and service that Forsey and Sons provided, especially Debbie Goldsmith who made arranging my Mum’s funeral easier to bear. Her compassion and empathy shone through at every stage. Thank you to everyone at Forsey’s.

I lost my Grandad back in January and having seen Forsey and Son in Glastonbury many times driving past, it was our first choice to go to organise his funeral. From the very first phone call to the very last email, we felt completely at ease and our worries were made so much easier as Sally was super helpful, organised and compassionate. Everything was made clear and concise and when funeral day came round, it was just absolutely perfect. Everyone who was in attendance commented on how professional it all was and how beautiful it all was. Thank you to Sally, David and the team at Forsey and Son Glastonbury for taking extra special care with my family and especially my Grandad. I would 100% recommend to everyone. Professional and compassionate. Thank you so much.

David and the team at Forsey & Son were professional and compassionate. At every stage after losing my mum, the staff were respectful and kind. David guided us through the painful process of planning mum’s funeral to her very clear wishes. Nothing was a problem and any queries quickly resolved. From here to seeing mum in the Chapel of Rest and the day of the funeral itself we felt gently and respectfully supported. Thank you all.

My Mum had left a request to be cared for by Forseys, when she passed away, because she had “heard good things about them”. She definitely made the right choice! I am so grateful to Debbie Goldsmith for her kindness, care, respect and guidance at a difficult time. Debbie helped with the preparation for Mum’s funeral, supporting me with the administration and planning. This was over Christmas and New Year, so time was at a premium but she worked hard to squeeze in the all the arrangements! Then on the day of Mum’s funeral she was there as a very gentle but confident presence, taking care of all the small details to help the day go smoothly. I would also like to thank all the rest of the Forseys team who took care of us, particularly Bryan who was our first point of contact and Sue on reception. All this love and kindness enabled us to have a very special day, celebrating our lovely Mum.

Debbie, David and team provided us with excellent, compassionate care and service at the time of my father's passing. With many aspects to arrange, they coordinated everything so smoothly such that we didn't need to manage too many tasks, yet they still ensured that they weren't pushy, or instilled any ideas that we didn't choose. Debbie was on hand and quick to respond to queries, and David arranged everything on the day beautifully, with a great team. Nothing was too much trouble for them and communication was very clear. Thank you to Forsey, we made a very good decision in choosing you to deal with the funeral at a difficult time. Would unreservedly recommend!

Debbie from Forsey and Son dealt with the funeral of my late Step mother. From start to finish the service was excellent and we were treated with kindness and humanity at a very difficult time. My stepmum wanted an unaccompanied cremation and Debbie kept us informed the whole way through the process and despite there being no family attending we knew she was being treated with dignity.
