On behalf of our family I want to say a BIG THANK YOU for your beautiful service today.
EVERYONE remarked on how warm, comforting and empathetic your performance was – I don’t think it could have been carried off any better – altho’ it was a shame that Judy Collins couldn’t remember the words of Amazing Grace! LOL
We all came away thinking that Flo herself would have approved – praise indeed……….
Just a few words to thank you for the care and attention with which you carried out Brenda’s funeral service on Thursday 22 June.
You may say it is “just your job” but I know the care and compassion you put into your preparation as well as the presentation on the day. The outcome was a wonderful tribute and celebration of Brenda’s life.
Brenda was definitely a people person and was sure to have loved the happy send off we all gave to her.
So thank you once again
With kind regards
I would like to take this opportunity to say how wonderful the service was that you conducted for Hilda McElroy, everyone there remarked what a lovely calming effect you had on the service making a difficult time a bit more bearable. Everything you said about Hilda was accurate and was delivered as though you had known her, it was everything I hoped it would be.
Thank you once again Gwen for really listening to what I wanted for Hilda and delivering a beautiful profesional service.
Thank you very much. n behalf of the family of Clive Gordon, I would like to thank you for your professional management of his funeral service. Low key and on time delivery was perfect for my Dad. Best wishes Yvonne, Sam, Alana and Ransford Gordon.
Thanks for the service you delivered at my sister’s funeral.
I was so deeply moved by the mood you created and your heartfelt words which truly captured Mona’s spirit. Gwen, It was such a beautiful day, it exceeded my expectations. Many who attended, commented on the way you were able to honour her allowing her true warmth and cheeky fun loving side to shine through.
It was a pleasure meeting you and on the day you felt like an extension of the family. It was very comforting.
We wanted to say a sincere thank you for the lovely service you gave Roddy. As you will know, it has not been an easy relationship for the immediate family, but you handled the service in a most professional and sensitive way. Thank you again for helping to make the day a gentle and loving experience.
With our very best wishes for your continued health and happiness from Pauline & Angus

“I’ve been meaning to write to you since Paul’s funeral service on 1 August 2013 at the Lambeth Crematorium and I very much regret that its only now that I’ve been able to do so.
At the most difficult time of my life so far, you showed me so much sympathy, compassion and understanding in guiding and helping me arrange Paul’s service and I can’t thank you enough for that. Paul had a truly wonderful send off which was dignified and poignant, charged with so much love for him, while also reflecting his great humour and his enormous generosity of spirit.
All those who joined us in commemorating his life were extremely moved by the service and without exception, they all said what an appropriate ceremony it was. How will-judged and how superbly you conducted it. It could not have been better. Thank you once again for all your support. I wish you every success in your life.
With kind regards, Jo”
“I would highly recommend Gwendoline, to write and deliver a accurate and brilliant reflection of a loved one’s life. She has an amazing and gentle way of gathering the events of the loved person’s life and delivering them in a service. The service that she provided for my mums cremation was fitting, heartfelt and well simply perfect.Thank you Gwen Maurice”
The funeral for Ron 29-7-13 turned out to be a wonderful celebration of his life from birth to death,I know he would have liked the whole thing (just his pint of beer). From what you were told about Ron you wove it into a perfect cameo of the man we all new and loved.
How fortunate you were found for us to celebrate that day. I thank you and also for the brochure you gave me which I will treasure.
Much love Kitty
I just want to say how much it meant to me and to others that you delivered the eulogy for Ian. It meant that he was given the great respect and dignity that he deserved. I appreciate all the patience you showed whilst I was re-drafting what I wanted to be said. Nothing was too much trouble for you and that really helped.
Above all, you were so kind and sympathetic at all times and that made my difficult job just a little easier to do.
Thank you so much,
