Dear Russell and Lynette,I just wanted to offer a personal note of thanks for the way my Dads care and funeral arrangements have been dealt with .Russell in particular your efforts were personal,sensitive and heartfelt and i cant tell you what this means to the whole family.The respect you showed not to just the family but to my Dad too.At every stage it has really felt that getting everything absolutely perfect mattered to you intensely and i felt important to pass on my appreciation of that to you Russell.

tracey says...

Thank you you have just made my family feel a lot better after the the death of my mother, Russell you were just so kind the time you took with us was beyond anything we could have hoped for. The whole team on the day of the funeral were so professional ,Russell when you walked from mums house in the pouring rain you must have been soaked truly dedicated to your job ,thank you all very caring people.

all good except




Hello Russell thank you for arranging the funeral of our late mother, every thing was done to a very high standard, the only slight fault i would say was the service sheets. Dont get me wrong the quality and content were very good my only gripe was the amount of time they took to coomplete we chose our theme for the front cover but the lady in your office kept trying to tell us i think this would be better or that would be better surely once our decision was made that should have been suufficiant. We know she meant well but in the end we knew what we wanted so please in future once the cover has been designed please leave it alone each time she sent an email proof we had to pass it around three family members ,two who lived away from morecambe and work full time very time consuming and not necesaary.

les says...

jane says...

Firstly i would like to say if you need a caring passionate funeral director look no further than this one. Russell and the team are so caring you cannot go wrong, from the young lady in the office the assistants at the funeral every thing was perfect. I must admit i rang to find prices from other firms .we decided to use Bare &Torrisholme because from our first phone call which was answered by Russell i knew this was the company to go with for my mums funeral they are very good on price as well 1750.00 cheaper than some quotes we had, no compramise on service what so ever highly recomended thanks to all of you your so kind.

karen says...

Can i start by saying we had never arranged a funeral before, we made an appointment for someone to come to our house ,11am was the agreed time, 11 am door bell rang thats a good start i thought bang on time, i opened the the door and i was met with a good morning iam Russell from Bare&Torrisholme funeral service . I thought what a well mannered polite young man we have here, we sat down to make the arrangements nothing was to much trouble , from talking about coming to see mum in the chapel, to arranging floral tributes etc etc. Russell took all the pressure away from us we were fretting over everything the day before not any more. any thing we asked was met with a positive answer very reasuring, the service sheets for the funeral were just wonderful, the arrangements for the wake went with out a hitch, so a big thank you to you Russell and your team at Bare&Torrisholme.

Thanks to Russell



Diane Di Leo says...

Dear Russell i hardly know where to begin thanking you for handling my dads funeral so perfectly. This was my first experience planning a funeral and i didnt know what to expect.From your first warm greeting to suggesting Trevor as our celebrant to guiding me towards the morecambe golf club for lunch,to helping me with the ashes you have been an absalute rock to me to lean on. Of course it helped we had such a lovely sunny day ,the beauty of the cars, the flowers,and the service cards was truly heartwarming. All my family and friends of my dads commented on what a beautiful service and tribute to my dad this was. Many said said it was the best they have ever attended carried out with such dignity by your self,this was very comforting to me sincerely Diane Di Leo.

Thankyou Russell.



hilary noris says...

The art of giving is a quality that belongs only to very special people like you, your warmth and caring nature the kindness you showed to us during our recent bereavement was beyond anything we could have exspected, it realy is a pleasure to know someone so thoughtful and it"s hoped that your kindnesses will always be returned to you .

Thankyou Russell.



ANGELA says...

Your experience and understanding meant you unfailingly calmly and politely worked around the shortcomings of other agencies involved in my husbands death. As well as expertly balancing the hugely varied expectations and wishes of our family four children all with different ideas of what a funeral should be, you were so calm sitting and disgussing what we needed to do, this can have been no easy task and you showed calm and dignity throghout. Thankyou Russell our family are very grateful to you you will remain in our hearts for a long time. Angela and family.

Realy caring



c. oakes says...

We used this company twice in six months both occasions we had all the help we needed,our funeral diector was Russ nothing was to much trouble he even arranged the scattering of the cremated remains. the only down down side to this company is the woman on the phone very abrupt and sounded totaly uninterested in our call you need to have a caring friendly voice on the end of the phone unfortunatly this did not happen sounded like an elderly person who should have retired years ago. we only rang to tell them the newspaper anoucement, was spelt wrong i would use this company again just because Russ was so good to us but please bare and torrisholme get your secretary sorted out she lets the rest of you down.

No one better



mary jenkins says...

Sadly my father passed away one phone call to Bare and torrisholme and i was in perfect caring hands. Russell was our funeral director what a genuine caring person, he understood our needs he arranged ever thing i cant speak any more highly of this funeral director ,i would recomend this company to any body who has lost a loved one.
