Our reviews

It's very humbling that at such a painful time, so many families bother to write a card, call to say thank you or post an online review. It means a lot and we know that seeing some of the cards and what others have to say, does give confidence to new families, so we are happy to publish some of the recent comments here, plus links to the main sites where poeple leave reviews.

Three excerpts from recent 'thank you cards':

'Thank you both for the lovely service for mum and all the extra special things you did for her and the family.You were both so kind as if it was your own family. The comments we had afterwards really do you the greatest of credit.' 'Thank you to you both for the way you made dad's farewell journey seem so special.. Rose - the way you conducted the ceremony was as if dad was a friend to you, which meant so much to all the family.' 'The comments wehave had from everyone are how very professional and personal it was... Rose, you were brilliant. It was as if dad was in the room. You made an unbearable day memorable and pleasant.'

Would like to thank Rose and Bill Kane for taking care of my mothers funeral, what lovely people they are. Everything went perfectly and was carried out in very professional but also very personal way with regards to my mother and our family. Would not hesitate to recommend them to anybody who should need a funeral director in the future, once again many thanks to Kane Family Funerals

From start to finish a perfect send off for our grandad.  This was the first family funeral for us to sort out ourselves and the friendly welcome and relaxing rooms and people just set us at ease right away.  Attention to detail was faultless and those special little touches just kept on coming.  We loved the way all the generations were involved.  The little ones loved decoration their wooden shapes for the coffin and there was even one for grandad's faithful pet, Tizzy.  We knew before the day that it was just going to be special but we couldn't imagine the comments we would get after the service that Rose put together for us.  Lots of friends hadn't been to a celebration service like grandad's and said what an amazing service it was.  Grandad would had loved that.  We cannot Thank Bill, Rose and their lovely team enough.  We really feel we did grandad proud and this really was his day when we could show everyone how much he meant to us.  Kane Family Funerals helped us do this and would highly recommend them.  Thank you once again. Alison Belcher

Kane Family Funerals far surpassed our expectations. They handled the whole process with outstanding sensitivity and professionalism. Their attention to detail surprised us through the whole day, everything we thought of and everything we didn't due to our high emotional state was taken care of. I would highly recommend Kane Funeral services to anyone in Bradford and the surrounding area. We plan to keep in touch with Rose and Bill as she has a special place in our heart now for what she did for our family during a very difficult time.
I have also used their services for my daughters headstone, again from helping me to choose the details to the organisation of the process, I couldn't have been in better hands.  A big thank you, with much love, Bozena Szweda and Family x

You guided and supported  us in such a personal way enabling us to truly celebrate a life  that ended far too soon . A celebration  of everything  that  was easily recognized by family and friends  who came to the service -  we laughed cried and each carried away  a personal memory  - a shared moment with those who loved  laughed and  shared their lives  with my amazing friend  and were  able to take part in such a personal service  shaped by those who love her. From initially feeling afraid of the  last goodbye  we were left  with a final closure  that was everything  we could have hoped for. Thank you  for enabling us to  say goodbye  - to share the life gift given  by my  wonderful friend. Her husband  cannot thank you enough  for everything  you have done .I am sure Mary would also thank you for looking after him. Talulah Bell

My grandmother died recently and I used Kane Family Funerals for the cremation at Nabwood. Their service was excellent, particularly the family-run touch. The funeral was organised easily and I felt like everything was taken care of for me. Also, the advice and suggestions they came up with were perfect. Praise where praise is due! Will def. use them again. Chris

Would like to thank Rose and Bill Kane for taking care of my mother’s funeral. What lovely people they are. Everything went perfectly and was carried out in a very professional but also very personal away with regards to my mother and our family. Would  not hesitate to recommend them to anybody who should need a funeral director in the future, once again many thanks to Kane Family Funerals. Stephen, Julie and all the family

Dad passed away on the 5th june 2011. Contacted Rose and Bill and she was fantastic  -  very caring and understanding - helped us every step of the way. Couldn't have asked for anything better. Would highly recommend them. Thankyou. Paulette, Ray, John and mum (Maureen).

Rose and Bill guided us through such a difficult time with such care and consideration that they soon felt like friends. They seemed to instantly know exactly what we wanted and were able to suggest lots of personal touches that made the service unique to Dad. Rose led the service and she hit exactly the right note. So many people commented on such a lovely service. We can never thank them enough.  Mrs Stately

We couldn’t have asked for more and Bill and Rose Kane and their lovely staff really did go the extra mile to make dad’s day so memorable and special. The horse drawn touch was a last minute gift but Bill pulled out the stops and dad would have been so proud to be taken in style by Reggie and Ronnie. People are still coming up to say what a personal service it was – thank you Rose for such a lovely service and for making it just as dad would have wanted. Everyone is booking you already. From our first meeting, we knew that dad would have been happy to have you both look after him. You made a painful time so much easier – and we feel as if we’ve gained two special friends who are definitely special people - Anne, Sarah and Steve.

HIGHLEY RECOMMENDED!! I will be forever grateful for the compassion, care & dignity you provided for my father’s funeral. At such a sad dark time you made it more bearable by been so helpful & understanding. Your professionalism was exceptional & the personal touches you made lightened our sorrow. Rose & Bill are such sincere, caring & respectful people. Not only did they offer such loving care to my father but also to myself. All my family & friends commented on what a lovely service Rose provided & should the need ever arise they will all be recommending Kane Family Funerals. Thank you from the bottom of my heart xx

The service was led by the Funeral Director's Celebrant and was exactly what my friend would have wanted. Everyone said so. It felt special and made us all very proud.
I would want this for my family.  Luc Mortimer

We cannot praise or recommend Rose Kane enough for the thoroughly empathetic and professional way in which she undertook all aspects of arranging the funeral of our beloved brother and in-law, Ainsley H. Fraser. Ainsley was a very special person of outstanding intellect and impact. The moving secular service that Rose orchestrated, with so many individual touches reflective of Ainsley, was truly befitting of such a singular man. Like Ainsley, it will long remain the in the memories of everyone in the packed crematorium.
THANKYOU rose Kane and all the staff at Kane's family funerals. Clive D and Mel Fraser in Birmingham - 12 Jan 16

The care and support you gave to both myself and my family was so comforting at the worst time in our lives . My mother was the focus on my life and always will be and the funeral you arranged was so personal my mother would have been so greatful and glad I found Kane's because I believe no one could have done a better job . My mother’s funeral should have been the worst I ever attended but it was the best . Forever in your debt . Sue & family Dec 14.

Mum’s funeral was always going to be the hardest day of our lives but the Kanes looked after her so beautifully and gave such love and care and empathy to us all that we knew they would really be there for us on the day. All our friends said that the service for mum was the best they have ever attended and blended respect and celebration so perfectly. The attention to detail was spot on and made us and would have made mum so proud. Karen and Ian 2009


We do this in memory of our loved ones, and so we strive each time to help you through the important days before the funeral and make these as comforting as possible.
