  • I left something important at one of the chapels and phoned to ask whether it was still there. A lovely lady called Gemma answered my call. She not only put my mind at rest by going to have a look and consequently finding what I had left but she offered to post it back to me after finding that I lived quite a distance from the crematorium. Gemma excelled in both her manner and her people skills. Thank you so much Gemma. Suzanne
