Customer Reviews and Feedback
At The Funeral Singers, we never specifically ask for feedback, so the calls, emails and letters we do receive after singing at a funeral are very special, and we know how comforting people have found having a funeral singer. Here are just a few thankyous.

"What a wonderful idea, you have a wonderful voice. I loved your singing, you made us cope with our emotions "
Mourners, graveside, Windsor
"I just want to say how moving your singing was at my brother's funeral in Winchester cathedral. The fact that I cried whilst you sang Andrew Lloyd Webber's Requiem was more to do with the emotion of mine at the time. It was just perfect and you have such a lovely singing voice. You are very lucky that you can help people come to terms with a lost one. I have listened to the recording just now and I cried again!
Thankyou for making the service so beautiful for my brother. I am sure he was listening"
SH, bother's funeral Winchester
"I would just like to say how beautifully you sang at my mum's funeral. The service was enriched by your singing and the song/hymns you sang. Family and friends told me how lovely the service was because of this addition."
US, mother's funeral Slough
"I would like to thank you for singing at my husband's funeral service. It was always going to be a very difficult time, but your performances were truly amazing. Your voices are wonderful and you carried us all through the ceremony. My particular favourite was Toni singing "I'll Walk with God" - Toni it was just perfect - thank you - I will always remember it as will the congregation. We had so many comments from our family and friends about your professionalism and your fantastic voices. You made us feel so uplifted after the ceremony. I would have no hesitation in highly recommending your company - you do a great job.
Many thanks for making such a sad day a truly memorable one. You cannot know how much that meant to me."
HS, on husband's funeral, South Norwood
"I would just like to say a big thank you for the bottom of my heart , you were amazing...."
GN, on mother's funeral, Maidstone
Just want to say thank you so much for completing the wonderful celebration of our darling Mum's life at the Requiem Mass recently in Dorset. The solos were just amazing and so very beautiful and appropriate. You carried us all in the hymns without dominating, letting our voices be heard but ready to step in where needed. We are all so very glad you were there. Would recommend your services in a heartbeat to anyone considering whether or not to engage you.. "Just do it - you will not regret."
The Stedmon Family, on mother's funeral, Christchurch
"Thank you for singing at our Father's funeral on Wednesday.
It is difficult to talk of a beautiful funeral but with the sun shining through stained glass windows and your soaring voices it was a very special occasion. Personally I shall treasure the memory of you singing whilst looking at Father's Hat and medals. Everyone was enraptured by the music. I should add that we found your observations prior to the funeral very helpful so that you are more than singers but provide a service. Finally, and in more sense than one, I can say I would want you to sing at my funeral. I am not sure I can say more than that."
SD, on father's funeral, Farnborough
"I just wanted to write you a quick note to say thank you so much for coming at such short notice last Thursday to Mum's funeral. Your presence certainly made the whole service complete for us and the singing was absolutely beautiful and moving. Thank you again and please pass our thanks on to Toni. With kind regards,"
JB, on mother's funeral in Ditchling, West Sussex
"I wanted to send our heartfelt thanks for the beautiful solo of 'Ave Maria' that Toni gave at my mum´s funeral last Thursday. Thank you so much. Mum would have loved it."
SB, on a service at Surrey and Sussex Crematorium, Crawley
"Thank you so much for your beautiful singing at my mother's funeral. As soon as you began singing "Ave Maria" I knew that I would be able to get through the service. You have a wonderful voice and our family and friends were both uplifted and comforted by your "Panis Angelicus". Thank you too for the marvellous singing of the chosen hymns - you inspired us all to sing our best. Thank you, Toni, with all my heart."
RG, on her mother's Requiem Mass in Littlehampton, West Sussex
"Thank you very much for your beautiful singing at L's funeral. I was holding my daughter's hand for the hymn and neither of us could sing as we were so choked. Suddenly we heard above all the strength and beauty of the most colourful enrichment to our grief. We found our voices and sang with you 'till the end.
You can never know just what your sweet voices did for us, as no doubt to others too, and I will always treasure the moment."
BM, Farnborough, service held at Park Crematorium Aldershot
Thank you so much for your beautiful singing yesterday. My husband would have loved it. Everyone commented afterwards how lovely it was."
WE, cremation service at Guildford Crematorium
"Thank you so much for your fantastic performance. You made the service memorably beautiful, and your stunning voice was the talk of everyone at the wake. It was very hard not to applaud you, and most importantly, I know my Mum would have loved it."
SC-P, Thames Ditton, Surrey
"Absolutely lovely… Mum would have loved it."
CW, funeral at Easthampstead Crematorium, Berkshire
"Many thanks for your beautiful singing on this funeral ... my colleagues here have received some excellent feedback."
Southern Co-operative Funeral Directors, Andover
"Just a note to thank Toni and organist Paul so very, very much for making my mother's funeral so special. As the family walked behind the coffin up the nave of the church, to hear Toni's wonderful rendition of "When Irish Eyes Are Smiling" was amazingly beautiful. Funerals are always a sad and expensive time but I have to say that this was money very well spent!!! All I kept hearing from the guests was "Where did you find the soloist!" Thank you so much for everything and I would thoroughly recommend you to anyone."
CS, funeral at Morden, Surrey
"Hauntingly beautiful, truly wonderful, we felt so blessed to have had you present at (our mother's) funeral. From the moment we accessed your comprehensive website to the last notes you sang it was absolutely amazing, so professional. We both want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making the service so happily memorable."
