From start to finish Stephen Johnstone & Son were so very caring and compassionate. They made sure that even under the difficult circumstances we are all under at present, every detail was carried out as we had asked.

“We honestly cannot recommend Stephen from Stephen Johnstone & Son highly enough. He went above and beyond his duty for my mother in laws funeral. He did exactly what he said he would if not more without hesitation and was always at the end of the phone regardless of the day or time, Nothing was to much for him, my father in law said he made him feel like a close friend (especially as he come to the house for any arrangements to be dealt with) that was a great comfort. Having this sort of personal care made an unbearable time so much easier. Thank you Stephen you are a wonderful man”
