Am sure K**** will have been in touch but I really wanted to say a little something as well. We all can’t thank you enough for your time and the way you managed to deliver what we all really really wanted for dad. Like you had said we only had one shot at it and we are all so pleased with your guidance we managed to deliver. It’s thanks to you our last memory of dad is the one we all hoped it would be and we will be forever grateful for this. Much appreciated


Anne, Just like to thank you personally once again for the very special way you portrayed all of Charlies friends and colleagues within our team operating at BP North Sea HQ as I know it meant so very much to them all today. This was especially felt by a number of colleagues including both Jordan Cooper and Ken Fraser who were fortunate to have been able to attend today’s service. You certainly managed to generated some very special and genuinely fond memories of a person very special to us and so many others.

Good Morning Anne, Mum and Myself would like to thank you for the lovely service yesterday for our beloved Bob. I have never came across such a dedicated warm and thoughtful person at a gathering like Dads. Even down to the stunning Blue Roses for each of us and your matching shoes wow. We appreciated your compassion warmth and kindness. I took my blue rose home to press in a frame in the memory of dad. Thank you.


Anne, I can’t thank you enough for today, it was beautiful. You really made it beautiful. Thank you so much, and the picture is just amazing my mum and the family absolutely adores it.


I just want to pass on our thanks and appreciation for all you did for my mum and the family during this sad time. The service although difficult for us all was poignant and moving. Linda and I appreciate the kindness and compassion you showed mum. As I said before we shall be having an event next year for all family and friends to come together to celebrate Stuart and we would be pleased if you can take part.


Hello Anne, The family and myself would like to thank you for the lovely service you prepared and presented for my Aunt **** yesterday. Under the present difficult circumstances, it exceeded our expectations The framed keepsake was a lovely surprise, which I only discovered once we were home. I intend giving it to my sister as I know she'll love it.


Anne, You really have given us all the very best we could ever have asked for. Ethel really did get a great send off. You really have exceeded all possible expectations of how a very sad occasion can be captured and provide such a lovely family keepsake. As I have said before I wish I had something similar for my parents & sister. I have a lot of memories so maybe with this lockdown I will take time to capture them and make something similar.. It is then something that can be passed down through the generations & give an insight in to their lives. The folders you prepare are great and the “photo of memories” is absolutely fabulous. You certainly have a very aptly named business.


My Mum and I would like to say another thank you for giving my Dad such a good send off. It must be so hard for you all just now. We’ve been thinking of you a lot. We were one of the lucky ones being able to say Good Bye to my Dad properly in a manner my Dad would have liked. There were many who were unable to attend the funeral on the day due to illness but everyone that managed to attend mentioned how suited the service was to my Dad. We really appreciate all the time and care that you gave us.


Well Anne, what can I say, from the moment we met you put us completely at ease. You drew from us so gently all the information required to conduct a fitting service for my Mum and Nana, Dorothy. The service was lovely and everyone who attended really enjoyed it. It was perfect in every way. Your gift which I won't describe and spoil it for anyone else was so thoughtful and sums up the lovely lady you are. Thank you so much for everything.


Hi Anne Thank you so much for my mums script and making her send off memorable day and a special thank you for your lovely gift of all our mums memories for us to treasure. Andrew & Carol

Dear Anne, I am writing to thank you for your kindness, consideration and beautiful words at my husband – Barry Rxxxxx funeral. Your compassion really helped me on the day. It was a beautiful touch with the gold carnation and the yellow roses for my daughters. The ‘tardis’ made an impression on everyone. Kind regards Sue


Hello Anne On behalf of all the family I would like to thank you so much for guiding us through the difficult process of saying goodbye to our Mum in a way we were all comfortable with. You did a fantastic job of collating so much information into a lovely, compassionate summary of Mum's life. Everyone commented afterwards on what a beautiful service you conducted. Love and best wishes Carole

My family and I would like to thank everyone at took the time to go to my brother Kevin's funeral service yesterday to pay there last respects to him And a big thank you to Anne Wels who done the lovely service and Gordon Mackay who spoke about his long life friend. Thanks again


Dear Anne, Just a quick message to say thank you for conducting the service for Gordon last week. It was a sad day but I loved hearing all the stories that you compiled. I’d also like to send a huge thank you for the thoughtful and beautiful memory box you made for mum. What a lovely thing to do. Best wishes Nigel


Hello Anne, Thank you so much for today’s service, it was just perfect and I’m sure Mum would have approved. Everyone enjoyed Mum’s story, most people didn’t know about her early years before she came to Aberdeen so they got to know another side of her. Thank you for pulling it all together so well. Regards, Sheila.


Dear Anne, thank you so much for the lovely service, which you delivered beautifully. Your kindness and thoughtfulness made it easier on the day and everyone who attended felt the same. Anne Taylor


After the sudden & unexpected death of my mother, we were put in safe hands with Anne who gave quite memorial service. Working with Anne was a wonderful through out and made this difficult time less stressful. The service was great and we've a lot of postivite feed back from people. The sunflowers were such a nice touch. Anne went above & beyond and very surprised with the final visit of the shadowbox frame about my mum. You gave her the send off she deserved. Thank you again Anne!


Dear Anne I would just like to say a huge thank you for the lovely service you provided for my dad, Michael on the 6th of Sept. Your words were so kind and caring and lots of friends and family have said that you spoke as if you knew my dad personally. It was the perfect ceremony and the family were so glad that we got to meet you and for you to provide my dad with the perfect send off he deserved. I will definitely recommend you to anyone who may require your service but I wanted to let you know how delighted so many people were that we chose a celebrant to do the funeral and that you most certainly spoke, straight from the heart. My mum was delighted with the lovely photo frame and service booklet you gave her. Your a very special person and we all wish you well in the future. 100% the best choice we made having you speak so caringly about my dad. He is missed so much by us all. Mum said you would send a few words that we could say as we scatter his ashes, if you can this would be great but if there is no time don't worry. so pleased as a family we all got to meet you Anne. You truly are a wonderful person. love from


Message from: Chloe Beattie MESSAGE ________ Anne did the most beautiful & amazing job helping us give the brightest send off for my brother, she put him across exactly how he was & it was genuinely the send of we dreamed of. She’s so hard working, professional, caring & supportive throughout the whole time working with the family & makes sure everything you need to help along the way is there! Really couldn’t recommend Anne more. Thank you for everything Anne, we really never will forget you & how perfect you made our boys big day. 🌈✨


Anne, many thanks for all your hard work- everything went well and the service was well received by the family. You made a difficult thing run smoothly. Once again many thanks from Louise and me


Thank you so much for the lovely service you conducted for Louise. Most of the people there (from my church) didn't know Louise personally,just about her battle with cancer and though they were sad at the circumstances they all said it was lovely to hear about her life and that you did a lovely job portraying it and the poem touched so many of them,thank you on behalf of my family and myself Anne xx


Hi Anne, I just wanted to message to say thank you for everything and for the frame you gave to mum on Friday, it was so lovely and thoughtful. It means a lot, just wanted to say big thanks directly.


Hi Anne. The funeral service for mum was lovely. I am sure the memory frame and transcript will be of great comfort for my dad. We are grateful for the lengths you went to in gathering stories about them. Many thanks once again


Family of Aileen Allan - We would like to say a "Big" Thank You for listening to and trying to decipher our stories about our mum. Speaking to you has certainly helped the grieving and taught us to embrace and celebrate the wonderful life mum had, and to go and do the same and have a laugh along the way. The service you gave us was wonderful

Message from: Tracy Rennie MESSAGE ________ Anne, my family and I were so pleased with the ceremony you organised for my Dad Ronnies funeral. You created a service that really captured how he was and how much we loved him. Receiving the framed pictures and the script for Mum, myself and Julie was extra special. Thanks again.


Message from: Cammy Aiken MESSAGE ________Anne cannot thank you enough for your efforts today on our behalf , you listened to our stories and turned them into the best eulogy ever, I personally felt like I had made a friend of you during the process, my mom had never been to a funeral that was non religious before , and she loved your delivery and feeling that you put into it on the families behalf,


Message from: Nicola Corbett MESSAGE ________ From the bottom of our hearts, the family want to say a massive 'thank you' for preparing and conducting such a lovely thoughtful funeral service for our mum and for all the work you did in advance of it and following it. At such a difficult time, you made everything so much easier and were a source of strength to us all. Thank you also for the beautiful framed memories you made up for us of our mum, we love it.


From first point of contact with Anne she was very professional and caring and put our whole family at ease. Anne spent plenty of time with our family getting to know about mum and made a point of including every family member. Anne was always in regular contact during the whole process with updates or a kind word. The service was conducted beautifully with a few laughs and giggles along the way. It felt as if Anne had known my mum for years. After a week or so Anne presented my dad with a memory frame that had significant reminders of my mums favourite things. I can't thank Anne enough for what she has done for our family at this sad time. Anne is a true gem with a heart of gold that goes that extra mile. Thank you from Aldridge family


Message from: Lindsey Scott MESSAGE ________ Your brilliant ! A wonderful lady with a massive heart. Xx

From the family & myself thank you so much.
