This year our annual Service of Remembrance was held at St. John’s Church Sidcup and was attended by over 200 people who joined with us to sing carols. We also remembered our loved ones by hanging messages on the tree of remembrance.

After the service we all enjoyed a glass of mulled wine and other refreshments served by the Uden family and members of staff.

We thank all those who took part and look forward to your company again next year.

Following are a couple of letters of appreciation sent to us regarding the Carol Service.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who have taken the time out to send us messages of thanks for taking taking care of members of their families whom they have lost. It gives us such pride in sharing these on our website and in our offices. Thank you!

“Hi Matt

Albert Davey Funeral Date 30th May 2013

I have only just found my feet after moving so soon after my dad’s funeral. I would like to say a big thank you on behalf of the Davey family for your fantastic service you gave us at dad’s funeral and hope you will use this email as a testimonial.

From the moment dad died you offered us such strong support and guidance. When your gentlemen arrived to take dad they were very professional and despite our grief they talked us through everything they were going to do. I thought it was a wonderful sign of respect as they drove away with dad and had their hazard lights flashing until they disappeared from our eyesight.

The following service you and your team gave us was beyond words. We never felt that we were detached from the dad. You and your team were on hand to guide us through such a difficult sad time.

On the day of the funeral you followed the families wishes to detail. You helped to give dad a great send off and one that will always be remembered. Your team were amazing and very professional. We felt that your personal touches were so special. I have attended many funerals but none of them can compare to dads.

Thank you so much for your patience, guidance, support and care. We are so thankful we chose W. Uden & Sons and have no hesitation in recommending you.

Many thanks

The Davey Family”

“Dear Matt -and all responsible.

Thank you so much for suggesting that I might come to your carol service last night.It was a very special occasion relaxed and with a genuine warmth. It was also nice that afterwards some people, for whom I have had the privilege of taking services, remembered me and seemed pleased to see me and have a little chat.

Kindest regards,

Fr Owen”
