"We would highly recommend Special Send-Offs they are amazing caring people.

We would like to thank Mark and team for a wonderful send off for Ian McLeod. You showed such respect and compassion to him and our family at such a heartbreaking time. You also followed through with calls and texts to see how the family was coping which meant so much to us all.” – The McLeod Family

"My Mother's funeral could not have been a better affair.

We arranged the Funeral Tribute ourselves, with Mark Hancock’s tireless support and encouragement. Mark is discreet, efficient and down to earth; there is no fake sympathy or funereal pomposity. His is a genuinely independent funeral business – not part of a conglomerate – and I could not recommend him more highly.” – Tim

"Mark is amazing at his job, his attention to detail is outstanding.

His care and compassion doesn’t go unnoticed. Highly recommend Mark and his fantastic team.” – Misha

"I would definitely recommend Mark, and his team at Special Send-Offs.

My husband, Adrian, met Mark last year and following that meeting, was more than happy to leave his funeral arrangements in his capable hands. His wish that his funeral be handled with care and sensitivity and with as little distress to me as possible, was more than met.

Mark is a very kind and caring person. His patience, understanding and attention to detail, coupled with his gentle guidance throughout, made the whole experience, whilst very difficult, much easier to cope with. It was a great comfort to me to know that Adrian was being looked after with continued kindness and respect.” – Tonia
