“Following the recent passing of our Mum, we were unsure which funeral director to contact. Initially we contacted one of the more well-known larger companies, however, following the initial discussions, we felt there was a lack of empathy and it seemed far too business-like and matter of fact. We therefore decided to look elsewhere. We came across Walker’s family funeral directors and decided to give them a ring. From the outset and first conversation, Richard was caring, compassionate and accommodating. Nothing was too much trouble and he had a wonderful way of easing what is probably the most difficult time in anybody’s life. Although cost was never an issue, it has to be said that Walker’s were considerably cheaper than the aforementioned. More importantly, the personal service received was priceless. The funeral home is set out beautifully. The chapel of rest is calming with a feeling of serenity. Richard ensured that everything was organised in good time and went above and beyond what we expected of him. His care and compassion is outstanding and we feel he has given us a wonderful opportunity to say goodbye to our Mum. Richard has made a lasting impression on our family and we are truly grateful.”

“I would 110% recommend this funeral home from the moment I made contact with Richard I felt an instant connection that he would do an awesome job for my mum. He came to visit to arrange what we wanted and again he was awesome he took a huge weight off my entire family and I’m truly thankful for this , my mum passed away unexpectedly and I was the one who found her , the way Richard works is truly remarkable and trust me it’s one in a million that you will find someone who truly cares. Richard appointed Tony who lead the service and was the most truly incredible service for my dearly departed mum who had an undiagnosed breathing problem for 15+ years , I went to visit her at the chapel of rest and yet again Richard did an incredible job she looked so good and at peace this gave me the faith and love and support for this funeral home. I cannot recommend this funeral home/services enough , all my family and friends who attended commented how beautiful and dignified and respectful the entire service was and the overall demeanour was perfect, I know for sure my mum would have been happy if she could have been there to see her day. Thank you so much for your time, effort and most importantly thank you for everything.”

“I would like to thank Richard and staff for everything they have done.
Richard you shown us compassion from the minute we came to you too the very end and I can’t thank you enough for that. I would highly recommend Walker’s Funeral directors.”
“I have recently attended a funeral service of my close friends father. I was taken aback as to how beautiful and organised the whole service was, and was so pleased for my friend and his family that their father had such a fitting send off. The funeral director was fantastic and his dignified and humble demeanor was a source of comfort to my friends family both before, during and after the service. He had clearly perfected his trade and made the whole day go smoothly and without any delays and ensured that the familes wishes were adhered to at all times. I would without doubt recommend walkers funeralcare and would again thank them for their part in helping my friends family make such an emotive and stressful time be so painless.”
“It is almost impossible to put into the right words, the way we feel about the service that we received from Walkers’s Funeral Service’s of Sutton, St Helens. From our very first meeting with Richard Walker we were happy and very confident in his gentle and compassionate manner. He made everything very easy for me and my husband at this very sad time, when his mother Doris passed away in November 2017. Every aspect of the funeral was treated with the upmost respect, care and expertise, and we would, therefore, highly recommend this gentleman’s funeral service’s for all your needs. To Richard, his staff and to John Wilkings, the Civil Funeral Celebrant whom Richard arranged to conduct the celebration of life service at St Helens crematorium, for our Mum, may we convey our sincere thanks and gratitude for everything you have done for us.”

“Great service from a great guy Richard sorted all my mothers funeral for us at such short notice and at such a great price thankyou so much to everyone at walkers such a great help I would highly recommend to anyone.”
“From the first meeting with Richard, I knew I would get a superb professional and considerate funeral for my wife Julie. Everything was taken care of, leaving me to worry about my mother in law. Nothing was too much, details were taken care of, even before I had thought of them.”
Richard looked after our 18 year old sons recent burial after his sudden death, he without exception, delivers a service which is borne from sheer honesty and commitment to ensure every step is taken care of to your exact requirements whilst ensuring the utmost of integrity. Having encountered the most horrific shock and overwhelming loss, we could possibly ever encounter Richard was a tower of strength and provided help, advice and comfort to each and everyone of us. Very rare do you meet people who has the many qualities Richard displays!
Having attended one other funeral directors prior, to visiting Richard, we can honestly say even the building, surroundings and internal decor is by far superior in terms of feeling tranquil, calming and the perfect place for your loved one to rest in peace. Whilst, cost was not a thought, surprisingly Richards service was over £1500 cheaper!!.
Sincere Thanks Ryan’s Family x
