We're here for you

Here are a few words from families, and the community, we’ve worked with say about their experience with us.

Thank you very much for arranging my father’s funeral. Mum and I were so pleased at how everything went. Panditji was excellent. All the drivers were kind and considerate. I want to thank you all.

Dear Jay, Dee and all at Chandu Tailor & Son,

I wanted to send you a note to thank you all for looking after my brother whilst he was in your care.

Dee has been instrumental with all the arrangements and ensuring that she was keeping in contact at all stages. This was my first experience of making funeral arrangements for a loved one and I was in need of guidance, which Dee fulfilled so well.

Jay, your two colleagues and Parth Mehta ensured that everything went smoothly on the day of the funeral. It was the most beautiful service which gave my parents and I such solace, in a time where the grief and pain we feel is unbearable and our hearts are broken.

I know that you would not usually come as far as Harlow, but you did. Not only do we appreciate that, but I know that my brother would too. My brother organised two funerals with you; my grandfather and my aunty’s stillborn baby, and he spoke so highly of both Chandu Uncle and Jay. We are so grateful.


Thank you to CTS. Your team is fantastic, especially Lou who is a true asset to your company. Parth also did a great hob with the pooja, the grandchildren were very impressed with his explanation and calmness.

From start to finish Jay Tailor and the team at Chandu Tailor and Son have been efficient, understanding and very kind. We have used their services for several funerals within our family and every time seen such professionalism. The team have been very easy to work with in organising a difficult occasion and continue to make everything easy to follow and understand. Their patience throughout has been incredible and they have been very flexible in working to our needs. Jay and team thank you so much for being kind and professional and we will always be happy to recommend your services. Thank you!

Chandu Tailor & Son is an excellent example of a dedicated team who help make a devastating situation into one that makes the grieving family relaxed, calm and able to concentrate on dealing with the death of a loved one.

We never knew that during such a sad time, there were people out there that could be so caring and professional. Dee and Jay were literally amazing throughout the whole process including our dad’s final journey to the crematorium which passed many of his favourite spots.


From calling and speaking to Dee for the first time, to asking them to collect dad and his final pooja; the service received throughout was impeccable. The team were very professional and incredibly patient. They know their job inside out and did everything possible to make sure we were informed and understood everything that was going to happen.

We cannot thank them enough for the lovely service received.

Dhanji Family

On behalf of my family we would like to thank all the staff at Chandu Tailor & Son for their professionalism and the care taken in ensuring our father’s funeral was run as smoothly as possible. From the initial conversation we had with Jay to organise the funeral, we always felt we were in good hands and Jay’s experience really filled us with confidence that everything would get sorted in time and to the standard we wanted for our father. Jay was incredibly flexible and patient with us, took care of several last minute service alterations and genuinely made the whole process less stressful. It is always difficult losing a loved one and you can never prepare for it, however, having a funeral director who guides you along the way whilst you have so much going on is invaluable and for us this is where we felt Chandu Tailor & Son really were outstanding. Many thanks for everything Jay, Chandu and team.

Pooja & Vijay

Dear Dee, and Jay. I can spend the rest of my life with an immense feeling of elation that my grandfather’s final journey was conducted with such finesse. Your seamless, personalised service allowed every single family member to appreciate that the end of someone’s existence can be a ceremony of solemn and respectful opulence rather than a worrisome finality. Everyone tells me how proud they are of me for giving him a great send off. I hand over all of their praise to you. Jay and Dee, I am extremely grateful to you both for making yesterday the best end of life story anyone can have. Thank you.


My fiancée’s family had used Chandu Tailor & Son previously for her father’s funeral. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to be there for that, but my fiancée and I were now in the UK to plan her sister’s service. Due to circumstances surrounding the death, the process with the Coroner did not go smoothly and was fraught with delays. We planned in advance as much as we could, but ultimately everything we did had to be last-minute. Throughout the process, Jay guided us with a matter-of-fact, yet compassionate attitude. He confidently presented himself as an advocate for the family, stepping in and being a liaison between us and NHS, the Coroner, and the Crematorium. He even arranged to have the funeral service programs delivered directly from the printer to the parlor so we didn’t have to go pick them up.
Thank you Jay for making the process of dealing with a tragic situation as pain-free for our family as possible.

Chandu, Jay and Dee a very special heartfelt thanks from all our family. You and you team were extremely professional in the handling of all the arrangements at such a stressful time. You managed to make the process seamless and made us feel at ease and with no question or request being too much to ask of you. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Dear Chandu Tailor & Son, May I thank you for your services, and the way the funeral was conducted by your director. We were entirely satisfied, and I would not hesitate to recommend your services to family & friends in the near future.

Mr Runjith Gopal

Thank you very much for everything that you did to make our Ba, Valbai Devji Varsani’s passing so much easier to deal with. The personal service was so much more than I expected and everything you did was carried out with dignity and kindness from start to finish. Thank you so much Dee and Jay

Pushpa Varsani

Chandu Tailor & Son provided excellent service for our beloved grandmother. They where extremely supportive and caring during this difficult time. And they are very professional and helpful from the start of the arrangement process and right to the end of the funeral. They where also helpful after the funeral helping us with the arrangement with the ashes.
Chandu Talior and Jay Talior were extremely helpful leading up to the funeral and their colleague Dee was very professional when she came to our house to do the final measurements to ensure the day went smoothly. I 100% would recommend Chandu Talior and Son to anyone that would require their services.

Karan Parekh

I used this firm for my fathers funeral last week and Dee who manged the arrangments did an exellent job. She guided me through the whole procces during a difficult period and provide some very good suggestions. Her communication throughout was excellent and the service on the day by Jay was very professional.
