"Firstly, can I just say what an amazing job you and the rest of the team did for us today, my Dad commented that the service we received was first class in every aspect, he felt you provided us with a really professional service but more than that - it was delivered with a real warmth and understanding which as a family we very much appreciated.   Thank you again for your help and support you made what was very difficult day as pleasant as it could have been given the circumstances, which enabled us to celebrate mum’s life and provide a suitable memorial to her passing."
The Rice family, Tavistock


"I would like to thank you for your kindness in helping me through Jim's death and internment. I know that you act as a professional, but I found your calm empathy and competence very reassuring. I am most grateful to all the other members of your team for carrying out their roles. The little burial ceremony was exactly as Jim and I wanted and you played an important role."
The Barnes family, Bere Peninsula


"Dear Simon, Lucie and your wonderful team."

"I wanted to get in touch to say a heartfelt than you for the way you supported me when I came to visit my mum when she was with you.  It was really hard for me to see her, but I am so glad that I did and your sensitivity really helped.  You did such an amazing job, you looked after her so carefully and you were a calm and comforting presence on the day of her funeral as well.  I cannot thank you enough."
Claire (Eason Family), Tavistock


"I wish to say a huge thank you to you and your wife and to the other members of your team, who did such a great job, on behalf of myself and my husband.
Everything was done and taken care of with respect and excellent timing."

Mrs Thomas, Tavistock


"I write to teel you of the many accolades people have made about Arthur’s funeral.  There is universal agreement that the afternoon ran smoothly, and we gave him the good and memorable send off he deserved.  The weather helped (the committal was particularly moving with the bright sunshine, a rare calm and much birdsong) but we are all in agreement that much of the credit goes to your sage advice and good work in the background.

I know helping the bereaved is your business, but you have been particularly skilled in helping the planning of Arthurs funeral with those who were closest to him.  Lucie’s swift response to my emails was valued.  On the day, Simon’s calm and timely guidance was welcome.  His whispered and discrete instructions to the pall bearers was particularly appreciated and enabled them to provide a professional looking personal service to Arthur.  They were all honoured to have the role.


Dartmoor is emptier without Arthur, but you have helped us mark his passing in a memorable and fitting tribute to the place he occupied amongst us. 

We are truly grateful."

The Executors, Princetown


"I wanted to write on behalf of the James family to thank you all for your support and assistance in managing the funeral of my late father.
As you may know you came recommended to us and the service we received from all of you lived up to their recommendation.
As you will well appreciate these are emotional and challenging times for families, but we always felt we were in safe hands and secure in the knowledge that the arrangements would meet our expectations.
Thank you all once again for your service, courtesy, and compassion."
The James Family


"On behalf of the family I would like to say a heartfelt “Thank you" to you and the other members of staff involved in the arrangements for our mother’s funeral. We felt you organised everything beforehand - and conducted us through the day - with great sensitivity and empathy.  We all said afterwards that we could not have hoped for a better farewell to our mother. The work you and your colleagues put into the arrangements are largely responsible for the very positive memories of the day that we will draw on in the future."
The Nicholls Family, Yelverton


"Dad’s experience of playing for many, many funerals, led him to be adamant that you were the only funeral directors he felt worthy to deal with his last rites and I can only say that I wholeheartedly concur with his opinion.  As a family, we cannot express deeply and clearly how much we appreciate the way we and Dad were treated."
The Palmer Family, Tavistock


“Simon, during one of our chats in the 'margins' I mentioned that this occasion would be the third time I'd personally used Morris Bros. From my initial contact with Chris on the phone to shaking your hand yesterday at Glynn Valley the service and professionalism has been exemplary. It is heartening to see that the very high standards continue and are maintained. To you, Lucie, Chris, and Kate a massive thank you!”

The Sherrell Family, Tavistock


“I am writing to thank you, Lucie and everyone at Morris Bros for the beautiful way in which you helped me through the loss of my dear Husband, Ron and arranged his funeral.  From the arrival of your two gentlemen immediately after his death, through the funeral arrangements, to the funeral itself, everything was done quietly, efficiently, actually perfectly.  I do not believe any other company could have done this better.  As a family we all felt that you did everything to ensure that Ron had the funeral he would have wanted and it was certainly everything we wanted.  You and all your staff are such kind, caring people and the service you gave was exceptional.  I cannot thank you enough”

The Stead Family, Mary Tavy.


"During a terrible time when I lost my husband suddenly and unexpectedly, my family and I were very fortunate to have the services of Morris Brothers. With special thanks to Simon who dealt with everything from beginning to end with great care, sensitivity and professionalism. There was support and guidance every step of the way through the funeral process and nothing was too much trouble.   I would highly recommend Morris Brothers to anyone."

The Morriss Family, Plymstock


“We would like to thank you so much for your amazing help and support.  I know it was a rather unusual sort of event and we were so glad you didn’t bat an eyelid and you were open to facilitate and help us in every way.  Morris Bros is a fine business and I would recommend it to anyone”. 

The Hooten Family, Weir Quay.

“Thank you for all the help you gave us during our Dad’s passing.  We would not have been able to do it without you”.

The Knight Family, Princetown.

“My family has recently used the services of Morris Bros Tavistock as we have just had the funeral service for our elderly mother. We had our own special requirements and this lovely family business could not have been more accommodating. In particular along with my three brothers and two of our sons we wished to carry our mother from the church possibly a risky strategy but under the careful and professional tutorage of Simon Luke, our 'coffin drills went without a hitch'. He enabled us to have a rehearsal and guided us through the whole process with great skill; throughout he was a supportive and delightfully calming influence.  Every point of detail throughout the preparation process leading up to the funeral was handled with sympathy, compassion and precise attention to detail. Our big family could not have been more delighted with the way our special if sad day was handled.  We recommend Morris Bros without reservation as a thoroughly professional and well organised Undertaker who looked after our every need. We are so grateful”. 

Mr Rory Steevenson, Tavistock.
