Dear Sonia,

A big THANK YOU for all your support, comfort and encouragement to get through our roughest days.

The work you do is invaluable to the Sikh community as you put a human touch to everything you do.

You helped make the service so personal and special. The "Girl Power" shone through. The advice regarding the children was so valued + helped us make a difficult decision. THANK YOU.

Dear Sonia,

Thank you for making all the arrangements for the funeral of my friend Miss Bond, you and your team conducted it so nicely and so sympathetically.

Dear Sonia and Team,

On behalf of myself and my family I wanted to express our gratitude to you all but in particular to you in how you have supported us during this time of loss.

You have shown the utmost courtesy and respect throughout, the fact that you are Sikh also helped greatly as you have been able to guide us and respect our traditions and customs.

You are a valuable asset to Gooding and I would ask that you share this email with the Directors and also thank them for arranging the black hearse and limousines at the last minute. Our mother couldn't have asked for a better send off with everything running on time too.

We had no idea which funeral director we would be contacting until mum passed and from the very first call you have been by our side, so thank you for that.

With much thanks and appreciation.

Dear Sanjaye, Peter and Staff at Gooding,

Just a small note to say thank you for the care and support you have given our family during this time. So sorry for the late gift, we are incredibly appreciative of all you did running up to the funeral of Baby Oshay and during the funeral. This is a hard time for us but you helped us through.

Especially thanks to the director on the day I believe it was Peter (sorry if I got that wrong) thanks for helping my partner with the casket and flowers.

Everything this small business does is incredible.

Sending love and kind wishes for the year ahead.

Blessings xx

December 2021

To Gooding Funeral Services,

I am just writing to thank Gooding Funeral Services for their care, empathy and professionalism in dealing with my husband, Michael Wallis' funeral.

When my son, Iain, first contacted you, the undertakers, Joshua & Peter who arrived were very kind, respectful and assured us that they would take great care of Mike and get him ready so we could visit.

My son, Iain spoke with Sanjaye and Amanda in detail so we could organise exactly what we wanted for the funeral. They listened very carefully and made good suggestions but were never pushy and talked us through every decision made.

The funeral itself was perfect. From Mike's arrival in the hearse, a beautiful slideshow and Rev. Sharon Kaye's service. It was very personalised and dignified.

A special mention must go to Amanda in her perseverance to retrieve a video keepsake of the service for those who couldn't make it.

It was a very traumatic time for our family but Gooding Funeral Services made it more bearable and doable.

Thank you all so much for getting us through this very difficult time.

Kath, Iain & Ciara Wallis

Just wanted to say many, many thanks for the wonderful way in which you looked after our brother Keith Claxton.

We were so impressed by the way the service was conducted, you helped to make things run smoothly; from the way he was dressed and prepared right down to the last details, in the church and at the cemetery.

Thank you Peter for everything,

From Gwennett & the entire Claxton Family

February 2021

To All Staff at Gooding,

Me and my family would like to express our thanks to all the staff at Gooding.

Not only did you make Bertram look amazing, you treated him with respect and dignity from the night you collected him from his home.

You accommodated us as a family any time we wanted to see him even in the snow when you didn't even have to open.

On the funeral day you respected our wishes to take him to Trax to give his friends some "rum" and not once did you rush us, you left us to do what we needed to do. For my Dad to do this would have meant a lot.

What can I say, you helped arrange for my Dad to leave in style and we as a family will always be grateful.

We came to you for a service and it didn't feel like that, it felt personal like you all had the same respect for my Dad as we did.

Forever grateful,

Family of the late Bertram Robinson xx

Thank you so much for arranging the Jamaican flags in the horses, they looked amazing - his family in Jamaica could not believe what they were seeing.


What a kind, gentle soul you are, wouldn't have picked any one else to take us on my Dad's final journey

Keep doing what you're doing because you are making a difference and helping families fulfil their family's wishes.

Here at Avery Walters we pride ourselves on our professional and personal service to businesses and individuals alike. We understand that dealing with bereavement can be an extremely difficult time for loving ones and strive to provide a sensitive and emphatic service.

When dealing with Xina, Peter and the team from Gooding Funeral to arrange a funeral for one of my late clients, I found them to be professional, personal and sensitive. Most importantly the whole team were extremely respectful. Peter ensured the planning of the funeral was made easy to include all extras such as flowers and a memorial plaque.

I was impressed when Xina stepped in at short notice to act as the celebrant and delivered a personal and heart-warming account of the deceased with many attendees appreciating her tone, manner and delivery. Gooding’s are cost effective without compromising on quality or service.

I look forward to dealing with Gooding’s in the future and to recommending their services to my clients and probate estates where appropriate.
