It’s difficult to write a review about a sad event, the usual words don’t really work. Moss were a really lovely company to do business with at the most difficult time. Tom acted efficiently but sensitively, giving us a sense of reassurance that everything was being properly organised. Sheila acted as celebrant for my dad and created an amazingly personal and beautifully crafted ‘service’. After gentle discussion with the family, Sheila captured the essence of my dad’s life. People still comment that they were so touched by Sheila’s words and that it was just the ‘best’ funeral they’d ever attended. Not the right words I know.
Many thanks from me and the boys for our experience with Moss Funerals. Everything was handled with such understanding and sensitivity. Despite the heartbreak of loosing Bry, we have been left with warm memories and are very grateful to you both.

JUST WATED TO SAY A VERY BIG THANK YOU TO TOM MOSS FOR ALL THE CARE AND ATTENTION GIVEN TO US IN DEALING WITH THE PASSING OF ROY
TOM WAS VERY CARING GOING OUT OF HIS WAY TO AID OUR PAIN
THE SERVICE PROVIDED WAS EXCELLENT AND NOTHING WAS TOO MUCH TROUBLE
NO PRESSURE ON UNECESSARY EXPENDITURE AND VERY CLEAR AND FAIR COSTS WITHOUT ANY COMPRAMISE
AT A TIME OF NEED AND UPSET YOU NEED TO RELY ON FAIR PLAY AND THIS WAS DELIVERED IN FULL BY TOM
YOU CAN ENTRUST YOUR LOVED ONE INTO TOMS CARE WITHOUT WORRY
Sheila and Tom are one heck of a team! It’s especially difficult when you have a death at home, even when it’s expected. You’re not sure what to do next. I called Moss Funerals, they came immediately and they guided us through the next two weeks in a totally stress free way. It took so much pressure off! Sheila came twice to speak to us and get to know what words and music we wanted. She is so caring, it shines from her. We had the service in their Chapel. This is a new thing for us as I’ve never heard of it before. It was personal and perfect. I can’t describe it any other way. I would recommend it to everyone. Tom is a true gentle man, he was so kind and thoughtful… And the cost was so reasonable. No pushing, in fact it was the opposite. Paul would have loved it. ❤️ You just care. From Dorothy, John and Michelle. We thank you. X

We were blessed when we decided to use Moss funerals for Mum and would highly recommend your company should the occasion ever arise.
Thank you once again.

Dear Tom and Sheila
On behalf of Peter, June and myself we would like to take this opportunity to thank you so much for the service provided for our Mum, Joyce. We know Mum would have been extremely happy with all the arrangements made on her behalf. We couldn’t have wished for a better service, it went above and beyond our expectations as we really didn’t know what to expect.
Our heartfelt thanks are being sent, you made a very sad and distressing day for our family, turned it around so we were able to celebrate Mum’s life, our spirits were lifted and we felt peace and love.
Everyone who attended Mum’s service said it was one of the best services they had attended, if not the best.
With warmest regards and blessings.
Linda, Peter and June
I would like to express my heartfelt thanks to Tom and Sheila for the kindness and total respect they gave at the sad loss of my beloved Mum, Mrs. Enid who passed away on April 19th. Her life was so full of love and kindness for everyone except herself so her funeral was of great importance to me. On Sunday 11th May I arrived with my daughter Lisa to say our private goodbyes before her funeral the next day. It was a very emotional time but I can honestly say that Tom was kindness himself showing total respect and understanding of the pain I was going through along with Lisa. His partner Sheila made cups of tea and both listened about the life of my Mum for a long long time. Mum was there, we were able to talk to her, put all her favourite things, photo’s and personal letters we had written on and around her coffin. Sheila was especially kind telling me that Mum looked lovely in her favourite outfit. A very moving and personal time which will stay with me always. On Monday Tom brought my Mum for her final goodbye, something nobody wants to go through. From arriving with Mum at my brothers house I admit I was very traumatized, but, watching as if it was a bad dream, I know that my Mum was getting the best, from the best. At the church, at the crematorium, and finally having to leave this very special Mum for the very last time, Tom’s kindness and understanding along with outermost respect and professionalism shone through. Even now, after her funeral Tom is showing kindness. I am truly grateful for your continued support. I am so pleased you cared and showed such compassion through every moment of this sad time. Thank you very much.
I cannot thank Tom at Moss Funerals enough for the service he provided when my partner passed away. Finding the right funeral director in the middle of the night when your loved one has just died is a very daunting task. This is expecially the case when, like me, you know that you don’t want to be sold a standard funeral package but don’t quite know how to get what you want. So, I am so glad that I chanced upon Moss. Tom gave me confidence right from the start that I had made the right choice. He was totally flexible in working with me to arrange a funeral which truly reflected my partner’s personality. I never once felt that he was pushing his own agenda but when I needed a guiding hand he was there with helpful, expert advice. The result was an event that surpassed my expectations as a relaxed yet moving and fitting tribute to my partner. All the guests said that they actually enjoyed it! The room we used at Moss really contributed to this because it is unintimidating and intimate and with all the facilities we needed. As for Tom himself, he was quietly discrete, respectful and highly professional but also very human and kind. He personally made a most difficult and painful process much easier to bear. Overall I would highly recommend Moss Funerals. They completely live up to the promises they make on their website.
Nice to meet a funeral director that puts the needs and wants of his customers before profit and bottom-lines, I met with the charming Mr Thomas Moss who runs a small independent funeral home based in Glossop, Derbyshire.

We were so grateful for the care and attention you showed to all of us. Every aspect of the arrangements were perfect and this was so important to us at this sad time. Both of you were careful when arranging every aspect of the day. It was perfect from beginning to end. At a time when it is hard to focus you were able to put us at ease and helped us give our mum the funeral she deserved. The celebration of our mums life was handled in a kind and caring way. We would have no hesitation in recommending your services to anyone who wishes to have the funeral they want and know that all their needs will be adequately taken care of in a sensitive and professional manner.

When we first met Tom, straight away I thought this is the person to give my husband Stu the best send off. From beginning to end organizing the service nothing was too much, never ever turned us away when we needed your professional help, you were always there for our family.

Dear Tom, Thank you for helping me make Roy’s funeral so tasteful, and for being so kind and helpful to me, and for all you did for Roy. It was an excellent service, Reverend David Harrison was very kind and understanding, and the private chapel could not be faulted. You were so kind, and helpful and dealt with everything in a calm and understanding way. Your attention to detail was impressive and I would recommend you to anyone wanting a more personal and intimate funeral. Well done to you all.

Thank you Tom for your kind and thoughtful handling of my Dads funeral. You have been very kind and helpful to my Mum which was a life saver for me as I live some distance away from her. The day was a send off my Dad would have enjoyed and been proud off. Thank you all so much.
Thank you so much for helping our family over the last few weeks. We really appreciated your kindness, advise and professionalism during this difficult time.

Tom, thank you so much for all your help and patience with the organising and professionalism of the final goodbye to my father.
You and your team were so understanding towards our needs and made such a tough time as easy as possible for me and my family.
You looked after my father in such a dignified and professional way and made his final send off so individual to what we wanted and met our every need.
We felt you took looked after him as if he was your own and we are very grateful.
Thank you Tom for the professional & sympathetic way you dealt with my mothers recent funeral arrangements together with the advise given regarding the other formalities required at such times.
