Being a family business, we feel that it is good to know that there is always a member of the Uden family to speak to.

Dear Trevor from W. Uden & Sons funeral directors,

I would like to express my gratitude to you and your colleagues for everything you did for Geoff, for me, for family and friends from his death to his eventual funeral service and burial. In particular I would like to express my gratitude for your great patience with my indecisiveness, for your efficiency and for the respect and understanding that I was given. I also felt the Pall Bearers honoured Geoff and gave him all the dignity he deserved and I will always be grateful for how beautifully they conducted themselves during the funeral and burial. Both the  service and the burial went so well. I really felt that we did Geoff justice and Udens as funeral directors played an incredibly important role in that. Fr. Philip also thought that Adrian and the pallbearers were all fantastic.

Kind Regards

Dear Trevor and Matthew,


I just wanted to write to thank you for organising my aunt, Nancy Shirley’s funeral so beautifully. Trevor could not have been more helpful in making all the arrangements beforehand, and advising me on what to do, and then on the day, Darryl was really exceptional in making sure everything went smoothly, with such care and attention to every detail. Both of them made what could have been a sad and difficult experience so much easier – we just had such confidence that everything was going to go well. Please will you thank everyone involved, including the pallbearers and the driver, for their professionalism and kindness.


The flowers were also really lovely – I will contact the florist to thank them.


With many, many thanks again,


Pippa (Philippa)

To all the staff from W. Uden & Son Funeral Directors,

I’d just like to express my gratitude for your great service yesterday when conducting my Uncle’s funeral. Robin Trott 13/7/2018. Everything was perfect and we all admired the attention to detail. Being a florist myself, and of course making the flowers for my Uncle, I was so impressed how the flowers were dealt with, so much care taken when handling them, and a lot of thought displaying them and showing them off. The cars looked stunning. As funeral directors, you were always sympathetic, caring, professional at all times. 

Kind regards


Dear Nicky, Matthew & Ben,

Thank you so much for all the help and guidance that you gave us in arranging our Dad's Funeral. Everything went just as we hoped and despite the sadness of the occasion was indeed a true celebration of our Dad's life.

Thank you especially for suggesting the West Ham ties, Dad and grandad ( Geoff ) would have definitely shared a smile at the ardent Millwall fans who wore the ties in Dad's memory!

We are so grateful for the way everything went so smoothly and know that this is a testament to the Uden personal touch.

A final thank you for all your kindness and patience, it meant so much to us.

With our best wishes.

Dear Nicky and Matthew,

There is no way that James and I and our family can ever adequately thank you for looking after us all last Friday. It could not have been a more specially cared for occasion and all the arrangements were more than prefect.

Lots of people commented on the style and dignity with which the funeral was taken but that is not surprising. What has touched us so deeply is the kindness and care which you have shown over the past two weeks. Your sincerity in all you have done has touched us all very deeply. I hope you may have some idea of the depth of our gratitude.

With all good wishes to Udens Directors.

Fr. Owen Beament.
