I just wanted to say a massive thanks for my Dad’s funeral yesterday! He would have been so proud! He was a true fireman through and through! I can’t thank you enough for giving him the best send off we could have wished for. Thanks once again!


Just a quick note to thank you for your services on Tuesday. The family also asked me to pass on their thanks. They were delighted with the fire engine and the whole service you provided.

I am writing to thank you for allowing a group of members from The Fire Brigade Society to make a visit to view your collection of fire appliances on Saturday 8th May 2010. Several of our members had travelled many miles to Shropshire from Hampshire, Suffolk, Yorkshire and even Scotland and were not disappointed by the standard of appliances and equipment on show or by the hospitality given to them by you. Mention must be given to the excellent condition that you had prepared the appliances to and I’m sure that given better weather the ‘polished’ bodywork would have stood out even more! Good luck with the rest of the ‘work in progress’ on the ex London Emergency Tender which I’m sure will come up to the excellent standard of the rest of the fleet. Our group look forward to many more interesting visits to your collection over the coming years.

Hello Ron Here are a couple of photos for you. I have more that show your engine so let me know if you are interested and I will send more. I would like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude for your professional and excellent service that made a very difficult time a little more bearable. I am happy to post a testimonial on your site to reflect this, just say the word! Many, many thanks.

Hi Ron, Thank you very much for everything you did on the day and before. it went down a storm, still people stop me and say how lovely it was and a great send off could not have done this without you and your crew. My mom still cannot get over how this is the only time she has been to a funeral and it has been so nice and the best way to send her loved one on their final journey and that the touch of the turn table made the day easier for some I can’t wait to see the rest of the pics you took. Once again Ron and your crew thank you very very much for all you have done.

Dear Ron I would like to thank you and your team for the most selfless act of kindness. Your attendance at Gary’s funeral made it so special and memorable for the family and mourners and your attention to detail and professionalism was second to none. I enclose a copy of the press coverage from our local newspaper; rather good photos and some detail of the service which, I am sure, you will be interested in. At this particular time, when everything in the news seems to be about greed and corruption, how refreshing and what a pleasure, to make your acquaintance. I hope it is not too long before we can avail ourselves of your services again at the going rate, of course! With kindest regards.

Dear Ron, I just wanted to write to you to express my gratitude to you for all you did to make Gary’s funeral so special. You made his wish come true, he got to ride on a fire engine, and words cannot say just how much I owe you for making this happen. His whole life was dedicated to becoming a fireman, and I know in my heart that he would have made it. Take care and carry on doing a sterling job. You are one of the most wonderful people on this earth. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
