Below are a selection of some of the nice things that people have said about us. You can read more reviews on The Good Funeral Guide.
Natural Endings was recognised as Green Funeral Director of the Year by The Good Funeral Guide (2013).
“Rosie was wonderful. From the first time we contacted her she was kind and gentle. Throughout the whole process, she made us feel confident and at ease with all the practicalities. We changed our minds a lot about the type of funeral service we wanted and she accommodated us without any problem in all our requests. Even last minute requests were responded to and dealt with positively. We chose the cream wool coffin and if you can say a coffin looks beautiful, it did, with a posy of English flowers on top. Rosie and her pall bearers were professional, elegant and supportive on the day of the funeral. The men were gentle giants.They were all so sensitive with us and with our Mum. Supporting us as a family to carry our Mum in and out of church holding the coffin by the side handles.The price of the funeral was extremely reasonable and we were given all the costs up front, no hidden or added on costs.”
Jo Bayly & Lindsay Parish, Bowdon
Rosie Inman-Cook; Manager of The Natural Death Centre
“HIGHLY recommended by the Natural Death Centre! We have received many letters from families who could not speak more positively about the service received by Natural Endings Funeral Services.
Everything on the day was perfect and I cannot thank you enough for your professionalism and the way that you handled everything. Many of the people commented that it was the best funeral they had ever attended – thank you so much.”Mrs M Clayton, Worsley
“On behalf of all my family I would like to thank you for all your help, kindness and patience. The funeral was exactly what we hoped for, a joyous celebration of F…..’s life and in such a peaceful, beautiful place. The deer that came to look at us was wonderful (how did you manage that?)”Morrison family. Edgerton, Bolton
“Thank you. Mum’s funeral was just how she would have wanted it to be. Many people have said how beautiful it was. I was hugely re-assured to find a female funeral director to take care of Mum. Your very human approach removed the fusty top-hat and gloom that I feared.”Miss E Dupey. Altrincham
“From my first phone call to Natural Endings we felt well informed, and after further contact you were very accommodating to all members of the family and their wants and needs. Coming to the house to talk about my Dad was great as it made everything feel more personal and the service was delivered perfectly- exactly what we’d hoped for.”C.Jones. Levenshulme
“I have nothing but praise for the way I was treated and the considerable care which was taken with the arrangements for my Mother’s funeral. My expectations were exceeded many fold. Despite the sorrow there was a joy making the funeral a fitting tribute to my Mother and a celebration of her ninety years.”Mr T Thompson, Middleton
“I want to say thank-you for providing such a helpful and caring service. Everybody was able to enjoy scattering Dad’s ashes at sea, because even though it was a sad day, the sun was shining and the crew were lovely. Everything about the service you provided was perfect! I felt I had given my Dad the perfect ending. He had been in the merchant navy and always had a strong bond with the sea, and the nice thing about having scattered him at sea is that anytime I go to the beach, I can remember him. Thank-you Natural Endings for organising this peace of mind for me.”Miss. S.Mylan
“Natural Endings are the bees knees of funeral directors, and we need the bees (and their knees). When my husband died far, far too young I, and our children, wanted to celebrate his life not just mourn his death. Rosie was not phased by my tearful request for a fun funeral with a cardboard coffin. She was everything you could have hoped for. She knew a jazz band to play Stuart in and us out. Rosie took the trouble to give me time and space after the funeral and brought his ashes to my allotment on a sunny afternoon a few weeks later. Her compassion, understanding, friendliness are all without equal. Her attention to detail and ability to “read” people is without compare. The world needs more ‘Rosies’.”Mrs.C.Hill, Heaton Moor
“Thank you for all you did for us when we were in such awful shock. Many people who attended the funeral have expressed their appreciation for the care with which you enabled us to celebrate A…’s life in a way we know he would have appreciated.”Mrs D Stewart, Chorlton
“Thanks again for your invaluable help in making the funeral of our baby girl, Luna Bliss, exactly what we wanted. Despite all the sadness, it was a beautiful occasion. Thank you.”The Boon family, Stockport
“I was guided through a difficult time with exactly the right amount of empathy and understanding. Difficult decisions were made easier by the thoughtful way ideas and choices were presented.”D.Weston, Stockport
“Natural Endings were very sensitive, respectful and understanding. They handled the whole process with great professionalism and without loosing sight of being human. I couldn’t have made a better choice”Mrs C Karagianni, High Peak
“I immediately felt that we were in safe hands through a very stressful and traumatic period. You were calm, reassuring and professional from the start”Mrs Howley, Chorlton
“Everybody commented on how beautiful the willow coffin was. So lovely decorated with flowers from her beloved garden.”Mrs Morley, Bolton
“We used Natural Endings when a member of our family died unexpectedly. During a time when we were shell shocked, numb and emotionally disoriented Rosie provided a gentle, clear, beautiful and reassuring service for us all. She was like a guiding light within a fog of grief. Rosie helped us work out what we wanted, and patiently facilitated changes of mind along the way. The funeral gathering was during COVID restrictions and Rosie was clear about what was possible within government guidance whilst giving as many options as possible. Rosie’s sensitive and compassionate manner combined with her knowledge and experience meant that we felt safe within a bewildering and painful time. She kept us informed during the planning process and on the day of the funeral gathering her facilitation was perfect: incredibly sensitive, professional and respectful. It simply could not have been any better. I cannot recommend Natural Endings highly enough.”
