On behalf of the family and myself, I would like to thank you for making the arrangement for Bob's cremation. You made us feel so comfortable as though we knew you instead of meeting you for the first time.

We just wanted to let you know that the service that you provided for our mother, at St Marys Church in Altona, was truly amazing. From setting up the casket with the amazing flowers to passing out our service church booklet and donation envelopes to assisting us with walking the casket out, to driving pass her home and paying your respects to her by placing at floral tribute at her front door, you even walked onto the path to her front door and then bowing in her honour, driving past Altona beach, waiting for us when we got caught in traffic, to out setting up at the Memorial Park, the seats, canopy and then waiting until all the guests departed the grounds so further duties could be undertaken- all were a true act of respect to our family and our beautiful mother.

I wanted to thank you and all your team for your professionalism and normalness while we were arranging my husband's funeral. ‘Normalness’ may seem a strange word but I think funeral directors get an undeserved reputation for being over-sombre and bleak and your team’s appropriate and respectful good humour helped me personally a lot.

Nelson Bros were highly professional, caring, human, thorough and nothing was too much trouble to or for you. In all organisations its strength is its staff. You have a fine staff.

I want to thank you and the lady Celebrant for the way the service was conducted for my sister. It was good to catch up with relative and friends not seen for many years. My sister would be looking down telling you what a good job you all had done. You must have done a good job, as all the family has gone from your parlou.
