Thank you for your usual good service in arranging the funeral for John.
Our family has always used your company and once again you did not disappoint. You were superb and so respectful.
Thank you again.
Yours faithfully,Pam Grimshaw
I would like to take the opportunity to thank you for your courtesy and sensitive attention at a difficult time, and the whole family was particularly impressed with the arrangements on the day. Colin, our Funeral Director, was exemplary in leading his team and went out of his way to be of comfort throughout although, happily, we still managed some humour along the way.
Many thanks again and we shall be happy to recommend your services in the future.
Mrs. K. Brewer
I would like to pass on my thanks to you and your company for the way you handled the funeral arrangements for my mother.
My father and my bother & sisters were extremely impressed with care and professionalism shown by all your staff, of course Colin stood out both in his personal care of us and in his very calm approach, every one should have a Colin!
W Uden & Sons are cheaper than the big companies I contacted and the service I received from Jason, in the Sidcup branch, was superb.
I was very impressed with how Jason helped me to organise my father’s funeral, he has a great team and everything went so smoothly on the day. I was particularly impressed with the Funeral Officiant, Steve Browning, that Jason chose for us. Uden’s made a very difficult time a lot easier than I ever expected.Gill Grubb MBACP counsellor Sidcup.
Dear Mr Gammon
Whilst writing I would just like to say that my family and I could not have been more pleased or impressed by the service given by all members of the Uden team. On the evening of Peter’s death your staff sensitively collected Peter, leaving my children and me at peace. Also thank you for the way you made things very easy for Philip and me when we visited to make arrangements for the day and, in no way, tried to influence how we wanted to funeral to be organised.
Finally, last Friday, Matthew was so kind and couldn’t have interpreted our wishes better. What could have been a stressful occasion was stress free.
Once again very many thanks to the whole Uden team.
Just a quick note to say thank you on behalf of Vera, our Mum, my brother and sister and myself for the wonderful and sympathetic way Spencer and the rest of the team handled and conducted my father Harold George Veasey’s funeral on the 17th April .
On what is always going to be a difficult day for any family your company’s service was totally professional and first class.
Kind regardsRobert Veasey
Dear Mr. Weston
As the younger brother of John Hanks I would like to thank ‘Udens’ for their professional manner in which my brothers’ funeral was arranged and conducted.
I can offer nothing but praise to all the staff concerned in the arrangements that took place. It cannot be an easy task to extend and understand the grief of each individual family your company deals with. I can see why ‘Udens’ has a reputation for all the necessary details to be put in place on such sad occasions.
With grateful thanks
I would just like to say a big thank you to all those people that were involved in my son Phillips funeral.
The professionalism, caring and support you have given us.
Thank you.Linda, Clive and Matthew Garcia
To Nigel, Tim and all other staff,
Thank you so very much for the calm professional attitude and decorum shown during the recent death and burial of my wife Wendy. What could have been an extremely difficult time was made so easy by the care and compassion shown throughout.
Nothing was too much trouble, no matter how small and each question was carefully considered and courteously answered/solved. This was the second occasion in which we have used Udens and whilst I hope not to call on your services too soon in the future, I will certainly recommend your services to all.
Thanks and bless you.
Dear Gary and all at Uden’s,
Thank you so very much for the kindness care and thoughtfulness shown to us on wednesday at Roberts funeral at St. Marks. We were so appreciative of the professional yet friendly and dignified way in which it was all done – it made the day so much easier for us all.

Dear Mr. Uden
I want to take this opportunity to once again thank you and your son for the help and service you provided us in regards to mum’s funeral and all the things that went on around it. In many cases it was the small things that you did that made all the difference.

We were all extremely grateful that you allowed it to be so personal – it was a real fitting tribute and celebration of Stuart’s life.

Dear Nigel & Everyone at Udens,
I would like to thank you for all your help and assistance in making the most painful day of my life go as smoothly as possible. Several people said it was the nicest, most personable funeral they had ever attended.
All your staff behaved respectfully and perfectly. I was terribly sad and upset and went to pieces several times but they kept “the show” rolling. This was the 6th funeral in as many years that we’ve arranged with you and you always do us proud!
On behalf of the Howell family, Anne and myself we would like to sincerely thank you for your help and assistance during a very difficult time.
From the moment Anne and I entered your office we were treated in an extremely humane manner which immediately put us at ease. Your gentle nature was very well received and you made it clear that nothing would be too much trouble - this certainly proved the case.
We would like to express our grateful gratitude to you for caring and looking after Terry whilst he was in your care – it was greatly appreciated.
Would you please pass on our grateful thanks to Michael and his team for their dignity, attention to detail and kindness shown to us on the day of the funeral.
We could not fault your utter professionalism from start to finish – it will not be forgotten.
With kind regardsAlan Balm
Dear Matthew and all the staff at W.Uden & Sons.
On behalf of my Father, Ron and the family, we would like to express our sincere thanks to you and all of your team for your care and compassion in our loss, and for the totally professional and dignified way you conducted the funeral of my mother, Kath on the 11th April 2013 at Eltham Crematorium. The funeral service for our Mother was done with sensitivity and care. We could not have asked for more. The courtesy you extended to my family was also second to none.
All our family and friends commented on the quiet, and dignity of it all. We were surrounded by friendship and love which helped us get through a difficult day.
Warmest regards,The Auborn Family

Your sincerely,Mrs. J. Mirams
A note of thanks for the impeccable service you provided in the event of my Mothers funeral.
Any concerns we had were dealt with care and compassion. On the day Spencer, Sam and the team were professional, beautifully well presented and respectful to all.
The Cars were immaculate and a very difficult day went smoothly and calmly as a result.
I would not hesitate to recommend your services.
Kind regardsMrs. Caroline Lee
Thank you so much for handling my mother’s funeral arrangements with such care, dignity and thoughtfulness.

Many thanks again for your help,Robert Norris
Diana & I would like to thank you and all the staff at Udens for making a difficult day pass without a hitch.

Again thank you for all you have doneThe Stevens Family
I would like say that I was very grateful for your care and organising to get Mum transported from the hospital and ready for me to see at your funeral parlour. A most gentle and atmospheric chapel.
The day went so well and Matthew and Alan and the rest of the staff were marvellous in looking after everything. I was very moved by the horses and the hearse and expertise of the coach driver and could not have wished for a better send off for Mum. Beautiful.
Thank you so much.Lynette Simpson-Clover
Thank you, you’ve been so thoughtful, thank you for helping me and making it a lot easier on the day.Tina

Dear Jason and Spencer,
We just wanted to say a very big thank you for making Dad’s Funeral very profesional and stress free. Everything went just as we had hoped and we are very pleased that we chose your company for this occasion.
With kindest regardsMr. & Mrs. Mortlock
Thank you so much for your arrangements for Den’s funeral on 15th March.
Everything went well, and Father Michael has a new following now. The small chapel was packed to overflowing and we ended up with almost 100 people back at the golf club.
Den would of been delighted.
Thank you again.
W. Uden & Sons
I hope you don’t mind me e-mailing you. You received one of my residents, Mrs Doris ‘Val’ Wargent into your care today from Northbourne Court Residential Home in Sidcup.
I just wanted to pass on my thanks to your two staff who cared for Mrs Wargent today. She was treated and cared for in a most respectful, dignified and appropriate manner. Having previously had residents, who were not always cared for in the same way (not by yourselves), it was lovely to witness staff who have been trained with traditional values.
I am really sorry that I didn’t get their names, but if you could pass on my comments and thanks to them, I would be really grateful.
Each one in our community was deeply impressed by the dignity and respect shown at Sister Margarets funeral last Friday, with the foresight to ensure that cars would be parked safely, the provision of shelter by umbrellas and that all the mourners could keep together as we left the church – even a bus was stopped, not to mention the lorries and cars, on the main exit on to the A2. We Thank you.
With renewed thanks,
Sister Joan Keitch OSU
Thank you so much for your recent correspondance regarding the donations which were forwarded to W. Uden & Sons in memory of Mrs Brereton.
Beryl and I would like to take this opportunity to express our sincere thanks to W. Uden & Sons for their very efficient way of conducting the funeral.
In particular we would like to thank Mr. Len Gammon for his calm approach when making arrangements for the funeral – his kindness and consideration was much appreciated.
Yours faithfully,Janet Pirt
To All at W. Uden & Sons,

Special thanks to Nick whose support helped me through a difficult time. Spencer was superb, caring and ultra profesional, he has my family’s gratitude, thanks and respect.
I must say thank you too to Father Michael Branch.
You’re all very special people.
God bless you allJean Middleton
Dear Len and Matthew,
I would like to extend on behalf of my family, our deepest gratitude to you and Matthew for all your care and kindness in arranging Mum’s funeral.
You have been so kind to us from start to yesterday where we could not have wished for it to go any more smoother or dignified.
The Coffin looked beautiful in the mahogany
All your staff directed by Matthew were first class and you were so kind, ensuring that everything was just so.
To walk behind Mum down the road was so old fashioned and she would have loved it.
The church was full and there were so many beautiful flowers all carefully handled.
We walked to the cemetery for the burial where we had time to look at the flowers and they made up posies for us which was truly lovely.
Obviously to loose a loved one is so devastating, but you made a very difficult day much easier to cope with by your warm compassion and empathy.
We would like you to pass on our sincere thanks to all the staff who helped us yesterday and particularly to both of you.
With kindest regards, you are a great team.Carol, David, Suzanne and Jennifer. Children of Mrs Leila Baker
I do not know how to adequately thank you for all the advice and help you gave me with the arrangements for my husband’s funeral. You were so kind and understanding and nothing seemed too much trouble for you. For you it is an everyday task, but for me it was so important to carry out John’s last wishes and you left nothing to chance.
Thank you so much for providing the beautiful Book of Remembrance. It was such a lovely gesture. Strangely enough I had intended to get one, but never got round to it.
Please thank Spencer and his team for their hard work at the burial. Spencer was so profesional and reassuring that I felt totally safe in his hands. Numerous people have commented on how well it all went. John’s sisters from Ireland were so impressed by the dignity of the ceremony, particularly the way in which the hearse was escorted. It was so different from funerals at home.
Many thanks also for introducing me to Kemnal Park Cemetery. It is such a beautiful site and I know that the grave will be well maintained when I am no longer able to take care of it.
Sincere thanksMrs. June Forde
Thank you so much to you and your staff for the excellent service you provided for uncle Stan Clark and Auntie Joyce Boxall’s funeral on Wednesday 20th February at Eltham Crematorium.

Due to the snow and ice it could have been so different you dealt with the difficult conditions with respect to our mum and her family nothing was too much trouble, helping people get into the church safely helping those whose cars got stuck in the snow by digging them out and not leaving till everyone was on the move. You are a credit to your profession and you wear your uniform with pride.

To Dearest Spencer,
Where do we begin……………
There are not enough words to express how we feel about you, after only meeting and knowing you for a short time. Thank you all for the way you looked after Paul, while he was with you, the way you dressed him, did his hair, and so much more.
Your professionalism is outstanding and all your team around you. You truly are a special person to do the job you do. Please thank everyone involved with Pauls funeral on the day, all the drivers , especially Pat who knew Paul well, who must of found the day very difficult on a personal level.
You gave Paul a wonderful send off which we will never forget. We still can’t believe Paul has gone from our lives but his memory will live on always.

Dear Mr. Uden,
Concerning our Mum’s funeral David and I would like to express our heartfelt gratitude for the exemplary way your staff conducted themselves at our Mum’s funeral yesterday.
In particular, I would like to mention Matthew & Tim.
Tim, who drove us to and from the crematorium helped make that ‘last’ journey more relaxed and less sombre than it might have been. He is consummate conversationalist and we very much appreciated the way he helped keep our mind on other things.
Matthew is a gem. So very smart, dignified and yet somehow relaxed, he brought a real sense of occasion to the day. He struck just the right note of formality verses informality and in particular, his suggestion to make up the little posies for the close female relatives was inspired and greatly appreciated by the recipients and us.
Both are a great credit to your family business.
Regrettably, though I do not know the names of the other men attending, the pallbearers etc, their conduct was excellent and they all upheld the good name of Uden.
Again, may I thank everybody concerned with the arrangements for yesterday: for their kindness, consideration and close attention to all maters concerning the funeral. While I am sure you will understand when I say I hope I do not have to see too much of you, I am certain that we will continue to use your services when the time comes.
Thank you so much for being so kind to & for looking after Michael. The day went well & Michael was perfect thank you. You are all wonderful people and your caring attitude exceptional.
Many thanks againPenny , Penny

Dear Nick & Everyone at Udens,
Just to say thank you so much for all your help with my Dads funeral service last month, it was much appreciated. You also handled my Nan’s funeral service from your sidcup office just over three years ago. You have always been kind and compassionate. The service we have received from Udens has been so professional - we’ve always felt like we we’re in good hands.

We would like to thank you for all the excellent service provided for our sister’s funeral Angela. The whole process went extremely smoothly, thanks to your organisation and we were especially impressed with the young gentleman who managed the entrance and exit into the church, as well as the respect he paid to the deceased. Once again we express our thanks for your support , advise and respect during the difficult day.
Kind regardsMaria & Susan , Maria & Susan
To Len, Chris and all the Fantastic staff at Udens,
From the first phone call we made to you of the sudden loss of your brother and son Andrew, you took control and shared all our grief with us with great sympathy , warmth and sorrow. As a company wich is second to none. Thank you so much for sending the Rolls Royces as you could not promise this on the day we made plans for the funeral, but our lovely brother and son got to go out in style which he would of loved. Also a big thank you to Martyn the driver as always he was lovely and considerate, so could you please pass on our thanks to him.
Once again thank you all so much for being there when we needed you.From all the Dempsey Family , From all the Dempsey Family
I am writing to thank you and all your staff at your Sidcup branch, for carrying out my mother’s funeral to perfection on 01.10.12.
Everything was very precise. The undertakers uniforms were immaculate, the person giving instructions to the pallbearers and to the mourners was impeccable.
Finally, ending on a very positive note, I have to congratulate you on the brilliant idea of the black flags! We were asked how many cars were to follow the hearse and were offered the flags to clip onto the windows. This fantastic idea brought a smile to our faces and lifted the spirit of the occasion!! What a difference these made. When crossing roundabouts, cars stopped out of respect to let us pass through and kept the procession together. It also helped those who didn’t know the way to the crematorium, how clever was that! I hope your company has patented that idea, a fortune awaits you!!!
Once again, thank you for all help given to our family. My mother had a long and healthy life and you helped her on her way. She would have loved the whole occasion, especially the flags!
Yours sincerelyJane , Jane

I would like to thank you for the extremely professional and supportive way in which you handled my mum’s funeral from the moment I first called your office to the day it’s self.

You were both very calming and understanding, and helping me with every question and request.
Thank you very much for your excellent service.

TEDDY BEARS’ PICNIC – Thank You
Please would you thank the two wonderful men, Nick and Pat for their invaluable help with the set up and take down of our Teddy Bears’ Picnic event and thank you for organising it so they were able to come along.
Despite the awful weather conditions towards the end of the event (which your guys unfortunately know all too well) were delighted that it was still so very well attended and was a great success. We hope to announce the total raised very soon.
As you know we rely on community support to raise more than 4 million pounds annually, which enables us to continue to provide specialist palliative care free of charge to those with life limiting illnesses and to their families/carers when it is needed most, and so our Hospice events are an important element of our fundraising.
I have attached a copy of our leaflet for our next two events, being our Moonlit Walk and our Sunday If you or your team are in anyway able to offer their time again for the Sunday on 23rd September or would like to be involved in any way with further events this year please do let me know.
Once again, many thanks for your support and I cannot thank your team enough for their help.
With best wishesKimberley Wheeler

I would like to thank you dearly for the wonderful service that you provided yesterday.
Everything that you provided was a fitting tribute to my father-in-law, you made the day relaxed and easy for us to manage, nothing was too much trouble and every detail attended to.
A number of relatives at the funeral mentioned what a wonderful service you provided.
From my first chat with you and meeting Len in Petts Wood we felt at ease. The florist that Len recommended again did a wonderful job and I thank him for the recommendation.
I would like you to pass on our thanks to all concerned, I would not hesitate in recommending your services.
Kind regards and many thanks indeed.Angie , Angie
I imagine other members of the family will write to you thanking you for all you and your staff did in the arrangement and execution of my late fathers funeral. I personally was compelled to write to you with my personal thank you. You and your staff made what was the hardest thing we have had to do as a family so much easier. You yourself were so helpful and reassuring throughout the arrangements and your staff on the day were nothing short of fantastic. I honestly cant thank you enough, and although I really dont want anything to do with you for a long time I know that when the time comes that we do need your services again it will be safe in the knowledge that we are placing our loved ones in very safe hands.
Again thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Dear Uden & Sons,
I am writing to express since thanks on behalf of Pam Myers, Eric Myers Brother) and myself, for the superb “undertaking” for the the funeral of Bob Myers at Southwark Cathedral last Tuesday.Susan Myers , Susan Myers
Thank you for the quiet reverence & dignified manner in which all duties were carried out. It all helped s much to make a truly memorable occasion rather than a “totally sad” one. I know at the end of the day Pam acknowledged feeling Peaceful and happy for Bob that it had been such a “Great Funeral”
I must acknowledge also the amazing skilful driving of Martyn & Gareth, giving me the confidence and comfort i do not usually feel when caught in London Traffic, coming from the wilds of Cornwall!!
I even managed to achieve a little sightseeing during our journey – so thank them for that, along with fantastic timing as well as their care on the day!
With thanks & good wishes sincerely

Dear Matthew & Nick,
I would like to pass on our extreme thanks to everybody at Uden’s for the way you conducted my Dad’s Funeral. From The first view of the cars to the arrival at the Crematorium there was a very military atmosphere about the way your staff and you conducted the procession.
The arranging of the milk float for my Dad was the icing on the cake and i would just like to add it was a pleasure to meet you all and if my Dad would have been able to see it he would have been so proud.
Once again i ca cannot thank you and your staff for turning a very sad day into a relaxed event where because you looked after my Dad and all of us.

On Monday 9th July 2012 I sadly attended the Funeral of my much loved older sister Margaret Sims.
I am writing to thank you for the care and attention that you bestowed to Margaret and to all those of us in her Family. The attention to our feelings and to our care on the day “Second To None” and i can only say that it made what was such an emotionally sad day so much easier to bear.
Margaret was a caring, giving, kind and loving person and during the last months of her life she was courageous and brave. She deserved the very best…. I could not have asked for anything more than for her to be looked after so professionally and with such great respect on the last journey of her life.
I thank you and your staff from the bottom of my heart and would ask that you pass this message on to all those staff at W. Uden & Sons who took such great care on Monday.Dianne Wray , Dianne Wray

You made the whole experience bearable. Your drivers were kind and sympathetic. also i would like to thank Matthew for the way he dealt with the situation when picking my Father up from the house on Sunday, my father had just died but Matthew was able to deal with it in a discreet manner avoiding too much discomfort to our Mother.
The Ladies of the Family thought it was a lovely gesture when Matthew presented them with a posy of flowers and would like to pass on there thanks.
Once again thank you so much.Mike Hayes , Mike Hayes
I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the magnificent manner in which you conducted Mum’s Funeral yesterday. Your professionalism, attention to detail, sensitivity and kindness were outstanding and very much appreciated by myself and my Family.
I was dreading yesterday but through your excellent management and the magnificent Horses I was able to face it with dignity, courage and great pride.
Mum would have been thrilled with her final journey, in particular the fact the horses were from Canterbury rescue. She was a great animal lover and we could not have asked for a more fitting and special horse escort.
Thank you for making my experience on the day and my future memories of Mum’s Funeral very positive and special.
Please extend my thanks to your brother Jason and his team for the kindness they afforded Dad and i over the last few weeks.
With great thanks and appreciation.Fiona and the Carr Family , Fiona and the Carr Family

Everyone was so kind and professional.
Everything was explained to us and we were all kept informed of what was going on. On the day of the funeral the staff were immaculately dressed and talked to us like they were actually friends of the family which put everyone at ease. All the above made saying “goodbye” to my Dad a little bit easier.
