I found CC James by word of mouth and what can I say! The whole team were fantastic from start to finish, the care they showed for my mum was brilliant. They even took care of the flowers, we had hiccups with the day before Mum’s funeral. Nothing was too much trouble and we would definitely 100% recommend this company to take care of your loved ones. Also a big thank you to the celebrant for the amazing service.
