What our customers say

Tina Cooper

At a time when everything is fraught Rounce's were the epitome of efficiency, understanding & gentle help. So much so that my mum's friend for 60 yrs has arranged to use them for the same type of green burial. And there is no excessive charging of vulnerable relatives. You have as much or as little ceremony as you want.

Alex Lloyd

 

We found rounce funeral directors very respectful and helpful at a difficult and sensitive time. I would happily recommend them to anyone who would like to lay there loved ones to rest with dignity and respect.

Sarah From the UK

Jan and the team were so helpful and supportive at such a sad and difficult time. We were not subjected to any upselling, and there was never any suggestion of pushing 'extra' services that we didn't feel were appropriate.They put us in contact with a wonderful celebrant who also aided and guided us through the process, and the result was a personal and thoughtful funeral that my mother would thoroughly have approved of. In my thank letter to the team, I said that I could understand how someone could want a job like theirs, as they can make such a difference to those left behind. How lovely it was to be cared for by a small independent set up, rather than a faceless corporate company. We can't recommend them highly enough.
