I wish to say a special thank you to Taylor and Wallis in the way in which they dealt with my late uncle’s funeral. Their compassion and attention to detail was excellent. They arranged for a Buglar to be at the crematorium which made this a truly memorable day. I wish your company continued success in the years ahead. Thank you

We have used Taylor & Wallis twice now and cannot fault them.

The way they took care of my Mum & Dad whilst they were in their care was outstanding. They were very respectful and sensitive from start to finish. Nothing was too much trouble.

Val explained everything to us, and helped us to look at things in a different way. They were not pushy to get us to purchase the most expensive caskets etc, in fact helped us to save money without it looking cheap.

We went to other funeral directors at first, however the standard of time and care stood out way above any other funeral directors in the area.

When my Father passed away we already knew who would look after things for us and that was Taylor & Wallis.

The whole Team of Taylor and Wallis are absolutely wonderful.

My Father-in-law sadly died and from the day that Jim and his colleague came to collect him from his home to the day of cremation, he was treated with the utmost of respect, they told us from the beginning that they would look after him and that they most certainly did.

We had to postpone the funeral once the date had been set due to a small family crisis which would have meant that two of Bill’s closest could not attend. Val and Claire were amazing, so calm, caring, nothing was a problem and they both guided us with the right decisions in the end whilst assuring us that my Father-in-law would be looked after even with a delay on the plans. They accommodated every need and did everything for us, they would have done anything we asked and it wouldn’t have been a problem.

The funeral itself was absolutely perfect, so respectful. We were all so proud of Jim and the Pallbearers and we new that my Father-in-Law would have been so proud of his own Funeral. You can’t ask for any more than that. Jim and his team looked after us all from the time the car picked us up to delivery to the Wake.

Val and Claire organised everything for us including the Order of Service and PDF version which was beautifully put together, Just Giving page, the Live Stream, flowers and organising a Celebrant, Anne who we met at St Mary’s Church. Once we met her, we knew then that the Service was going to be perfect.

Taylor and Wallis give a very personal, friendly yet professional service. Saying goodbye to Bill was made easier thanks to everyone there.

We can’t thank everyone at Taylor and Wallis enough.

I have unfortunately said goodbye to both my Dad and Mum within the last nine months. Taylor & Wallis we amazing throughout. Mum didn’t want a ceremony for Dad (as it was during Covid) so they kindly arranged to bring him “home” one more time and the whole street turned out to say goodbye. It was simple, respectful and organised beautifully, so much so that Mum decided when it was her time she wanted the same.

The staff here make the process as painless as possible, they show understanding, respect and attention to detail. I couldn’t have asked for better people to look after both of my parents.
I would strongly suggest that if you are looking for a company that cares as much as you do to look after your loved ones then you could do not better than Taylor & Wallis

Yvonne Houlders

The best. So experienced . The day went so smoothly. From our first experience when organising my dad’s funeral to the day itself. I CANNOT recommend them enough. So friendly. Customer oriented and helpful. Thank you so much.

Taylor and Wallis were the funeral directors for both our mother and father’s funerals this year. As a family we were so pleased that they dealt with all the arrangements. The empathy, dignity and professional service they provided was absolutely first class. Val and Ian especially were so genuine and made a difficult period for us so much more easier.

The service they arranged was planned and executed with precision. The order of service, the liaison with the wonderful Reverend Ian Meridith, selection of music, the flower arrangement, high quality cars and the punctuality was a credit to them. Recently there have been other funeral directors who have set up business in Portchester. Taylor and Wallis are the oldest established company and we would only use their services as we know them to be trustworthy and professional.

Thank you Taylor & Wallis, you gave my father-in-law, Ralph and us, as a family, just the best care and support and he had a great send off! A special thank you to Val who is wonderful and Jim who played the bosun’s whistle and the bugle for us at the service – just stunning and meant so much. You are the No 1 Funeral Directors in Portchester, always have been, always will be! Thanks to all of your fantastic team.

Paulette Tuson

When my father passed away i used Taylor and Wallis, I am so glad i made this decision. This was my first experience dealing with a death in the family where i was having to arrange everything myself and it was very daunting. During the current climate made it all the more harder as i was unable to connect with family to discuss arrangements. Val helped me through the whole process explaining what i needed to do.

I cannot thank her enough for all her help and even checking in on me every so often to make sure i had everything in place and how i was coping with everything. The gentleman that lead the funeral possession was most polite and understanding, thank you to him and all other staff behind the scenes.

Thoroughly professional and easy to deal with. A fantastic company to engage with in the most stressful of times. Thank you to all who assisted with my Dad’s funeral.

Paul Bayliss

We can’t thank Taylor and Wallis enough for the service they gave us when dad passed away. They were professional, compassionate, supportive and friendly. Val was amazing and helped us through the planning and arrangements. On funeral day Ian and the staff were excellent and the cars looked lovely. We couldnt have asked for anything better. I would thoroughly recommend Taylor and Wallis at such a sad time.

Jane Gillespie

So impressed with Taylor & Wallis, they made a potentially stressful experience as easy as it could be. All the staff were fantastic, everything was clearly explained to us which made it easier to make decisions. Any questions and emails were promptly answered.I would not hesitate to recommend this company.
