We had Baytree for my dads funeral on 9th of September we found them very caring and respectful they did not try and over sell and help us to have just what we wanted highly recommend

Adam Frakes

Les Powderhill


This was the first time I have had to plan a funeral ( my mother’s) and I didn’t know where to start. My dad, daughter and myself made an appointment to speak to Sam to advise us on what to do! From the moment we walked in Sam was the most understanding, empathetic person we have met. Sam took us through the whole process of what to do and what to expect. Through all the turmoil, tears and pain Sam was there in person or at the end of the phone to reassure and guide us through this nightmare we were experiencing. We had decided on what we wanted for my mum and Sam delivered more than our expectations could have imagined. We visited my mum in the chapel of rest and she looked beautiful and at peace. Sam from myself, my dad and daughter and other family and friends we would like to thank you for making my mums journey from this world to the next a beautiful and peaceful experience. My my would have been so honoured that you took care of not only her but us as well.
Thank you Sam

Bay Tree Funerals organised a fantastic send off for my father in law, lovely, kind, caring people. They looked after the whole families requests, nothing was too much trouble. They made a very sad day as perfect as it could be.



I would highly recommend they looked after us so much when we recently lost my beautiful grandad, they were there to make us feel better when we went to visit him in the chapel of rest, they made a lovely job of his funeral and were fantastic support when we needed it most it won’t let rate it with stars but I would easily give bay tree funerals 5* xx

We recently used Sam and Bay Tree Funerals to arrange the funeral for my father in law. Sam provided an amazing service from start to finish. We had some tight deadlines, which Sam managed to accommodate. We felt that Sam really cared about what she was doing. She put the whole family at ease, and was always available to help and answer any questions we had. Would highly recommend Sam and Bay Tree. Thank you Sam xx

After the passing of my Wife, realisation kicked in that we hadn’t got a funeral director in place. We looked on Google for local independent funeral directors. I’m so glad Bay Tree came up on the search list. From start to finish they conducted everything in a professional, respectful way. From the order of service to the choice of cars, the professionalism of staff, it was just a pleasure and a breath of fresh air to deal with such a great company in what was such a difficult and traumatic time. If you have to suffer the unfortunate event of losing a loved one and need a reliable, respectful and professional team who offer the utmost dignity then please use Bay Tree. Thank you to Sam for helping me in a difficult time and easing the pressure in a situation I had no idea how to deal with. Regards, Chris. x

Very caring and professional service. Nothing to much trouble.



Sam and her team are so caring and professional. Their aim is to support you and your family at this difficult time.



Very impressed with Sam and her team. At such an upsetting time Sam took the worry and stress away with her knowledge and caring attitude of organising the funeral. Nothing was too much trouble. We also used Baytree for the burial of the ashes we received the same 5 star service. Would highly recommended
