Because of the nature of such a sensitive time, I do not chase testimonials, but these are some of the comments that have been sent to me, which I am delighted to share with you…
I have just watched Enid’s funeral. Thank you so much for doing this. I am currently isolating and couldn’t attend it person, it was lovely to feel that I was taking part.
No problems with the technology. It’s a great service that you are doing, thank you.
We have watched the live stream presentation and it was excellent. Thankyou very much.
David & Mary from Cumbria
Thank you for enabling me to attend the funeral of my friend , Adele F, albeit at a distance.I was very sad that I was unable to attend in person, but to watch the video was a real consolation, and it all worked very smoothly. Thank you again.
Thank you very much for the video linK for the funeral of Alan P it worked extremely well & we felt part of the service which was a lovely tribute to Alan’s life.
In these strange times we really felt part of the service.

Thank you very much for streaming Dad’s funeral service yesterday. We’ve had lots of positive feedback stating that the quality of the stream was brilliant and nobody had any connection problems. If you would like us to leave any reviews on a website or similar, please get in touch and we will be happy to do this for you.
Thank you for making the video of Peggie’s funeral mass so easy to log into and allow me and others to take part in the service. It was a beautiful ceremony.
Many thanks. Theresa G
My name is peter who attended your live funeral stream at potters bar nerja for john dennis on tuesday- well done you & because like many we could not attend it was nearly like being there thru your link-we had about 12 people at potters so we could see there was about 30 links which was great under the circumstances.
Well done mate – regards aussie peter
A very professional and sensitive service at a difficult time. Very appropriate at a time when, due to Covid restrictions, many who could not attend really appreciated being able to join the service live or at a convenient time later. For the family the recording will form a part of treasured memories.
Thank you so much. I watched the video before I went to bed last night.
Everything was perfect and I will treasure the fact that whenever I am thinking of Ken I will be able to watch and see how much he was loved.
Thank you so much for the new link. We have just watched the service which was beautiful. The picture & sound were both excellent. Very clear. It was the next best thing to being there and wonderful to be able to hear the wonderful tributes & anecdotes.
I live-stream a Mass each Sunday from different locations & your recording was by far the clearest.
Well done & thank you.
Thank you for the live stream of Bevin’s funeral. I felt as if I was there with Mel and his friends.
Just a quick note to say thank you for organising the live stream and subsequent edit of my mother’s funeral last Thursday. We have had a number of positive comments about how well it worked from people across the globe who were able to be join in.
You were very discrete in the way you handled the set-up to the point where I hardly noticed you were there.
I can see the streaming of funerals really catching on even when things are back to a level of normality. It’s a real bonus to be able to have people from across the globe feel part of saying goodbye to loved ones even if they cannot travel to attend in person. I would gladly act as a reference if you need one in the future.
We have just come back home from watching the live funeral stream at Potters Bar, Nerja, Spain of our dear friend John D. I would just like to say what a superb link we had, it was wonderful to be given the opportunity to say Goodbye to our lovely John. On behalf of us all we would like to say a very big Thankyou to you for giving us the opportunity to do so. The stream was perfect all through the ceremony with no outages.
Regards and Best Wishes

Just to thank you for the streamed service of John’s funeral. As a group we watched it in Spain and genuinely felt part of the ceremony. The streaming was perfect.
Fantastic job with the video yesterday; everybody said how seamless and good quality it was.
Just to say that I was able to watch Kevin’s funeral thanks to your video link. He was my brother-in-law whom I have known for over 50 years and I was sad not to be able to travel up to the Midlands because of Covid restrictions.
The video was very special in that I felt that I was there. The filming of the service was very good and easy to access on my iPad, with comprehensive instructions on what to do.
I would recommend video streaming of these kinds of ceremonies in these exceptionally difficult times.
Thank you for your help yesterday – much appreciated .
We were pleased to see/hear the service – we had known the Nxxxx’s for many years .
The recording was of a high quality , clear sound , good vision of the proceedings , we felt that you had captured the ambiance of the service by following movement / action -picking up the relevant details so well .
It is hard when you are unable to attend a funeral service but you bridged the gap for us
Thanks again. Ann H.
The Service was great, Appreciate being able to be there and pay my respects.
Thankyou very much for providing this service
Alex – watching in CA, USA
As ex-neighbours of Sheila P, we watched the Funeral Video you produced and wish to feedback that we found it very clear visually and sound-wise and it felt like being there. The fact that the camera was not always static, but roved at times to pick out parts of the church and home in people, added interest and a feeling of togetherness. Thank you for making this facility available to us. It was very special.
I have just watched Henry’s service via video and would like to thank you for the service that you provided, It was very well delivered and appropriate for the occasion.
I would certainly recommend to others.
Just wanted to drop you a line and thank you for the great job you did of streaming Dad’s funeral yesterday. We’ve received many calls from people who watched the stream, all of them saying how good the quality was and how well everyone could be heard.
It meant so much to us that people who were unable to be there in person due to the Covid restrictions were still able to join us and be a part of the celebration of Dad’s life.
Thank you and very best regards
Rich E, New York
I am Pat, Sue’s sister. I have seen the email you received from Michael A, our friend in Brisbane and I would like to say how pleased we were that your recording was so well received on the other side of the world. Our brother who lives on the Isle of Barra, Outer Hebrides was able to watch it all along with a number of friends here who were not able to be at the actual event
Thank you for doing such an excellent job and I know it was appreciated by everyone.
You have done a lovely job and I personally appreciated you travelling to the crematorium to take the photographs of the flowers.
I live in Brisbane Australia, and watched the live streaming of Susan Nation’s funeral. It ended at 11.40 pm here in Australia at night, and I can confirm it was an excellent presentation both in picture quality and sound quality. It was as if it were being telecast from next door to where I live. Both the outdoor video in the street, and the service in the Sutton Coalfield Crematorium was absolutely perfect. Thank you for sending me the link which I received through Susan’s sister Pat Fox.
Once again Ian, many,many thanks for what you have done for myself and my family.
If you need me for any future recommendations, please do not hesitate to contact me.
I’ve also had some really positive verbal feedback about the livestream of Mum’s funeral and the street send off.
I was the Church warden and read the psalm, so having been in Church for the whole service I don’t think this could be any better. Well done given all the difficulties you had.
Thank you from everyone who has watched at home.
You have done Jeff proud.
Just heard America, Florida and Ireland had a fab live stream as well.
Thank you again.
Thank you so very much for everything you did to make our celebration of Dad’s life something to treasure and the opportunity for those far away to be a part of it too. This is particularly relevant in our case, as Dad’s only and very cherished grandchild lives in Australia and were devastated they couldn’t be here with us, as were several other friends and family who were shielding or in other parts of the UK.
We cannot thank you enough for working round the clock to get everything edited and out on video less than 24 hours later. The words “thank you” seem wholly inadequate, but we do thank you so very much.
I’m unsure if you received any feedback specifically, but everyone I’ve spoken to said it’s beautifully edited and those who were in the churchyard said it was great to be able to watch the whole thing afterwards. As a family, we have a lasting tribute for our husband, dad and grandad to treasure.
One thing I didn’t say before is how unobtrusive you were. I knew you were there but I didn’t feel as though we were being watched at all.
We’ve had more feedback since, again all very positive and saying what a fabulous way of sharing such an important part of someone’s life.
Thank you for covering the Funeral of Philomena Gilbert at Fradley Crematorium today 21st August 2020.
I felt I was there to say my goodbye to a dear friend.
Regards, Doris E
I sat on the grass during the service to listen. This video is clear to watch with bright colours and audio is also good.
Many thanks it was a very sad day, the video is beautifully done many thanks .
Thank You so much, for everything you did and said, the Day, or, your comments, will never be forgotten, I’m sure that my “Sally Ann” would have approved.
Excellent and respectful.
Just wanted to let you know that Kevin and I watched your streaming of John’s funeral and it all went very smoothly, good sound and pictured quality.
The service was a lovely tribute to a very nice man under difficult circumstances. Thank you for letting us share It.
Ian approached my commission with sympathy and compassion. It was a ground breaking time for both of us and also the venue. Ian delivered a wonderfully simple and beautiful video. He ensured that all aspects of production were considered against time restraints – effectively shooting as live and ensuring that all productions contingencies were covered. The final product was beautifully edited and creatively packaged as a wonderful momento. A faultless production and service.

Thank you for providing the video link service for the funeral of Andy Beckett.
We watched the live stream from Corfu and all went well.
Thank you for the cd and memory stick everything is working
So many people have said what a wonderful thing you are offering, and also those who have watched the dvd.
Once again thank you
I am sorry this message is late but I have been intending to message you about your excellent video of Mrs G funeral. I live in South Wales so could not attend. The previous week I had been to a Zoom funeral and this was so much better. We felt we were actually at the service so thank you.
Today was my first online virtual funeral experience.
Very respectful, solemn and professional.
Thank you Ian.
I had a similar message from a church member, so a job well done in terms of the production making people feel like they were there.
Rev. Jonathan I
I thought I would just let you know that I had received your dvd & usb
Many thanks for all your help & kindness & the lovely presentation of the dvd.
I’ve just watched the video of my friend, Elizabehs’ funeral and although I found it emotional, it was comforting that it went so well in such strange circumstances. I’m very pleased that I booked you to video it.
We are well into our 80’s. live in Dorset, and because of all the restrictions imposed by Covid-19 we were unable to attend in person. We have just been able to take part in Bette’s funeral service via your live link. Thank you so much.
Jill and Mike C
Nice work on your part for both locations. The streamed video took me to the service so that I could share the experience in real time which was important to me.
From China, John O’C
It was a very emotional service and we were pleased that we could attend, albeit virtually.
Keep up the good work, it means a lot to family and friends who are unable to attend in person.
Anne and Alan R
We have just watched the Funeral service of Mike through the link sent to us from his dear wife Shirley.
Thank you so much for the new means of being part of his service during this awful pandemic, allowing us all who could not attend to pay their last respects.
We would highly recommend anyone having to go through this very sad time of losing a loved one and being able to offer this means of virtual attendance for family and friends, both near and far.
Yvonne & Bryan G
Thank you for providing a great service this morning.It provided great comfort to me,my family and friends in that we were able to view it and like you said-feel like we were there.
Many thanks again
What an excellent service you provide… especially in the situation we are in at the moment…. but also when things return to ‘normal’ for relatives who are living a long distance away.
Well done and thank you x
Thank you so much for the quick turn around today! It means a lot to us all and especially to the family member that is living abroad. He got to say goodbye to his Dad, which was the most important thing and you helped make that happen.
I just wanted to say thank you for an amazing job yesterday. I have had so many people from far awn near text to thank me for asking them to join us online to say farewell to Mike. It has makes a huge difference to our family and friends so thank you again.
I just wanted to let you know that I’ve received the funeral DVD and USB in the post today. It was a lovely production, very professionally and tastefully done and I think it captured the event beautifully.
My wife’s brother died in early May and his funeral was held at Woodlands Crematorium near Coleshill in early June. My wife couldn’t go, so she was sent a link to a recording of the live steam event after the day itself. Apart from the fact that the link wouldn’t work for several days, the recording was not a patch on yours. It was filmed from a single camera high on the back wall, which only showed the vicar, the coffin and the first bench of mourners on the righthand side. Basically, it was like a security video with sound; very poor.
However, I was truly very impressed and very pleased with the quality of your work. It was well worth the money, and if you ever want a review to put on your website I’m be happy to write a few lines for you. And if anyone is looking for someone to livestream or film their relative’s funeral, christening or wedding, I would be more than happy to recommend your services.
Once again, many thanks for a discrete and professional service. The finished video has gone down especially well with friends and family who couldn’t attend because of the current restrictions.
Hi you did an amazing job of filming her service. I have also shown it to an elderly friend of Sally’s who would not have been able to attend even in “normal “ times Well done
“I had a very memorable experience “attending” my brothers funeral via video from New Zealand. The image and sound quality of the video link was excellent throughout the service.
Ian was very helpful with my questions about initial set up and post funeral Ian was at hand for any other queries or requests. Thank you for all your help Ian, it was much appreciated. “
I just watched the funeral for Sally M.
Thank you for the excellent video. You zoomed in just at the right moments and I felt like I was there.
Keep up the good work.
Thank you so much for your discreet and professional work today.
We watched the service live today, and re-watched it on Vimeo tonight. It was very tastefully done. The video quality was sharp and the sound was clear. We watched it on TV and it was just like being there.
“I have to say that the standard of videography was absolutely excellent and incredibly professional. It was much better than I ever expected such remotely viewed services to be and it really gives the viewer the feeling of actually being present and in the moment, rather than feeling distant and detached from the proceedings.”
Being able to watch my father’s funeral live whilst being lock-down abroad was invaluable. The video was high quality and feedback from family who were able to attend was that Ian was respectful to the family and the circumstances.
At a time when a family couldn’t be together your live streaming allowed us to feel part of it.
It was beautifully done.
It was good that you showed the mourners but not enough to be intrusive.
It was watched in America, Spain, Portugal, France & Scotland as well as here in England
Friend of Diane M
It was just like being there.
Friend of Diane M
We would like to thank you for the invitation to Joyce’s Funeral.
It was a real privilege to be present – even though it was virtual!
Friend of Diane M
We have enjoyed being with you for Joyce’s funeral just now.
Such a clear and well-done video. We could really feel we were there too.
Friend of Diane M
It was a lovely service today and it was lovely to see it on the video.
I know dad enjoyed it too.
Friend of Diane M
Thank you for making it possible for us to join in the celebration of Joyce’s life.
Friend of Diane M
Never thought for the life of me that I wouldn’t attend my own Mothers funeral!
Thank you so much for the opportunity of ‘being there’ with you.
Friend of Diane M
As a family, when we originally discussed a video, we were all against the idea
but as we thought about it – and talked it through, we changed our minds.
he live-streaming was the best decision we made – it was professional and discrete.
Friend of Diane M
It’s easy to forget the impact of the death on the wider family members
and many friends – all of whom (pre-Covid 19) would have come to the funeral and
because of the live-streaming they were able to be there.
Friend of Diane M
I had to stay at home because I am in the high risk shielding group during this pandemic but was grateful to watch remotely.
Just viewed the final version, it is very good
We have had comments from some who watched it live and some who watched it later and all the reports are that it was very good and would have done Iris proud
In view of the lockdown they were appreciative of this opportunity and they felt that they were really there .
