Genuine and caring service.
My Mum passed away recently and after Beswethericks were recommended to me for my Dad 4 years ago it was without hesitation that I used them again for Mum. Once again they made a very emotional experience that bit easier due to their professional and personal touch, showing empathy and genuine care throughout the whole time. I felt that I was being looked after every step of the way. My thanks and gratitude go to Cindy, Simon, Gloria, Sandra and the rest of the team for helping me organise both funerals and I would recommend Beswethericks without reservation. Jo.
Outstanding at all times
Sadly we lost my mother in law suddenly just before Christmas. What is always a difficult time was made much worse by the time constraints Christmas brings. At all times the team at Beswethericks were there to help and advise, always at the end of the phone. They made sure that my mother in law was treated with dignity at all times and that we as a family were supported. Throughout the whole process from planning to the funeral itself, no question was left unanswered and no problem not resolved. The ceremony itself went seamlessly and we will be eternally grateful to Gloria, Cindy, Simon and Sandra for everything they have done for us throughout this sad time. I would highly recommend Beswethericks and thank them immensely.
CARING AND PROFESSIONAL
I cannot recommend this company highly enough. When my Aunty passed away a few months ago I had to arrange her funeral with the complication of living nearly 300 miles away. From the very first phone call to Besweatherick's office in Truro, everyone was very kind, helpful and sympathetic. They informed and led me through everything especially the things I hadn't thought of and nothing was too much trouble. The funeral was very much a celebration of my Aunt's life and family and friends all said what a wonderful tribute to her it was. Special thanks to Gloria who was there on the day and was so reassuring and to Cindy and Simon for all their help and care. I am so grateful to them.
Excellent and sympathetic company
Beswethericks were recommended to me and I would have no hesitation in passing the recommendation on. It is a local, family run business that offers a efficient, sympathetic and sensitive service at what is a very difficult time. Nothing was too much trouble and Cindy and simon were happy to guide me through the whole process and were there in person on the day to make sure everything ran smoothly. A very professional company I would highly recommend.
Caring and professional
We have used Beswetherick twice in the last 2 years for my parents' funerals. The whole team are so professional and yet caring. They handled all of the arrangements which made our lives much simpler. Their advice and guidance was very much valued and their customer service and attention to detail perfect. Gloria was the funeral director at both funerals and it was a comfort knowing we were in good hands. I can highly recommend the whole team.
A First Class Caring Service
My elderly mother died recently following a long illness. In her funeral wishes, she requested WJ Beswetherick & Son to be appointed as funeral director. In following out her wishes, the family found this firm to be tremendous - they were friendly, supportive, caring, efficient and I cannot praise them highly enough. Gloria and the whole team instilled my confidence in their service from the moment I made my first approach on behalf of the family. All the arrangements, from the first collection to the end of the crematorium service, went without a hitch, all thanks to the highly professional staff and directors. I heartily thank them and highly recommend them.
We have used beswethericks over the years and have no hesitation in returning to them.Their professional and caring and of course understanding to all are needs and make our sad journey as easy as they can. The family can't thank them enough and any requests are dealt with with compassion and dignity.We have no hesitation in recommending them to others who need a family run professional service.
My darling mother Mavis passed away in the middle of the night. I called Simon. Himself & a colleague were with us within moments. Such gentlemen. Very kind. Didn't rush in anyway. Gave us all the time we needed to say our goodbyes. Mum didn't want a funeral. She had just turned 86 years old, she said at her age all her friends unfortunately were dying and the ones left spent their time going to funerals, she didn't want that. Mum also felt the occasion was too upsetting for us her children. So she chose to have a private cremation. Cindy & Simon looked after everything for us. They are an amazing couple doing a wonderful job at such a very sad time in anyone's life Thank you both very much Your kindness was much appreciated Marion & Stuart Farmery
Excellent & Efficient Service
From the minute I entered the offices to the end of the cremation I was dealt with in a very caring and efficient manner that helped remove a lot of stress and difficulty whilst arranging everything else. Would highly recommend.
I cannot thank Cindy, Gloria, Simon and all the staff at Beswethericks enough for their wonderful support and help at such a sad time. We chose a well-established family business as we felt this would be more fitting. We were not disappointed. From initial enquiry to after the funeral, the care and warmth shown was greatly appreciated. It is said that the little touches make all the difference; rarely has this been more evident. To everyone at Beswethericks a huge thank you for the professionalism and quality of service provided. I can recommend them without hesitation.
Professional and caring
My mother sadly passed away recently whilst staying with us in Surrey. Beswethericks were helpful, efficient and caring throughout, from arranging for Mum to be returned to Cornwall through to the actual funeral itself. Our thanks go to the whole team, particularly to Simon, and we would certainly recommend Beswethericks as a very professional company with that all important personal touch.
Caring and Professional
We have used Beswethericks in the past and did not hesitate in using them again. Their care and support to the family was very welcome at a difficult time. Any questions or requests we had were dealt with with compassion and dignity. Our many thanks go to Cindy, Gloria, Simon, Sandra and all the team for their professionalism and guidance.
Care, Compassion and Professionalism
When my mother passed away, Beswethericks were recommended to us and they certainly fulfilled the recommendation. The funeral was in Truro Cathedral and as we lived in Berkshire, we were quite daunted by the prospect of all the arrangements. Beswethericks arranged every detail with care, compassion and professionalism. They were extremely flexible and anything we wanted could be provided. I would certainly recommend W J Beswetherick & Sons.
Nothing too much trouble
Cindy & Simon were lovely, warming and very professional. Nothing was not too much trouble for them. They put the order of service together for us which came really well including the images etc. Their communication was spot on, not too much, not too little. Very caring and efficient service from them all.

Highly recommended – a wonderful, dedicated family firm
In 2001, I chose this funeral director to handle the arrangements for my mother's funeral and they were excellent, so I had no hesitation in choosing Beswetherick & Son again last month when my husband passed away. I am pleased to report that the standard of the care, compassion and professionalism shown on the second occasion was just as I had remembered it - if not better. Everyone was kind and caring at a time when a family needs to know that they can rely on the fact that everything will be done to make the day go as well as you would wish. We had made several decisions regarding the funeral beforehand, which obviously helped, but from our first appointment, Gloria was excellent in gently pointing us in the right direction when we needed it. I am so grateful that this dedicated family firm was available to arrange such an important day.
Courteous and compassionate
We have now used Beswethericks for three family funerals. We have found them courteous, compassionate and friendly on each occasion, the latest being no exception. We could find nothing to fault, from their planning, finessing the paperwork, service on the day, to their follow up afterwards. Thank you.
Fantastic service, highly recommended.
We had absolutely fantastic service from Beswethericks from start to finish. Couldn’t praise them enough for the care and professionalism that they provided both leading up to and on the day of the funeral. We would recommend them unreservedly.
I cannot recommend Beswetherick’s highly enough to express how their efficient, caring, approach helped me give my father the most amazing send off ever with the help of the RAF. Simon, Cindy and Gloria were so supportive and ensured that the personal touch was maintained throughout the arrangements. A very sincere thank you to you all. Lin Rundle, Truro
INDEPENDENT IS BEST
All the staff offered caring and considerate customer service at a time when emotions are stretched. Nothing was too much trouble, from collecting my mother from outside the county and bringing her home to realigning the layout of the service sheets for the funeral. The discussion about the service and requirements was, due to distance, done by telephone and email and worked well. Having a dedicated person present on the day to liaise with and direct the family was delivered skilfully and unobtrusively. Overall, the attention to detail and concern for all on the day was exemplary. One family member commented 'it was the best funeral she'd been to'and this was in no small way due to the team at Beswethericks. When the account arrived it was £3,000 less than a very similar funeral organised up country with a Funeral Directors who are part of a larger organisation, which was pleasing, especially as the service we, and my mum, experienced was so good.
An excellent funeral service arranged by e-mail from a very caring team.
We were extremely satisfied with the funeral/cremation arrangements and service from W J Beswetherick & Son Ltd. My 94 year old Mum died peacefully in Truro, but I (her son) live in Epsom. However we were able to make all the arrangements by e-mail after an initial phone call. W J Beswetherick noted all our requirements and arranged an excellent Christian ceremony and arranged for Fr. Simon Bone from St. Day to conduct the service. They arranged the requested music and Fr. Simon put together a simple, but Christ filled service. Gloria & Lee from W J Beswetherick looked after us at Penmount Crematorium and were very caring supportive. We did not want a cavalcade and my daughter brought a white rose cross with her from Norwich which her friend had made. W J Beswetherick were able to accommodate all of this with absolutely no problem. Thank you all very much for your attention and understanding as we celebrate and remember my Mum's life. To God be the Glory.
Compassionate and Caring.
Very compassionate, thoughtful and clear servce covering all aspects and fine details of funeral process, legalities and arrangements. Extremely helpful in suggesting various alternative options relevant to our family, and all staff were just lovely and caring. Very clear web-site with likely costs explained. We were very impressed with the personal care and attention we received and very pleased with the service booklet production. We felt genuinely "looked-after" and were kept regularly informed at every stage of the required arrangements, and able to ask any questions at any time by phone or email with rapid reply. Highly recommended and a big thank you for giving us a wonderful memory over a sad event..
Simply the best
Cindy and all the staff are absolutely fantastic, kind & caring and dealt with any problems or queries that we had with outstanding professionalism and nothing was a problem for them to deal with. To put it simply they are the best.
A good funeral
The service we received was very professional but friendly and welcoming at the same time. Cindy and the team were all concerned to help us organise the type of funeral we wanted and nothing was too much trouble for them. Helpful suggestions were made and there was no "hard sell" or pressure at any stage. An excellent service - we had used the business previously and would certainly do so again.
Delighted with WJ Beswetherick & Son Ltd
The family were very pleased with the way in which WJ Beswetherick have arranged the funeral of my aunt. They were professional and know their business inside out. We never felt rushed at any time and were very gratified by the sensitive manner in which the arrangements were made. They managed all aspects of the funeral which involved a church service and also a cremation. Their communication was excellent letting us know about all stages of the funeral process including press notification and also the distribution of donations to charities . The costs were fair and were clearly identified in the final invoice.
Excellent care and attention.
As on previous occasions that Beswetherick and Son have acted for our family, we were treated with kindness and compassion during the funeral arrangements for our Father in law Syd. The professionalism and care was shown from all concerned with the company. On the day of the funeral every detail was in place to make it as easy as possible to get through what was a difficult time for all the family and many friends present. We were very grateful to Beswethericks and would have no hesitation in recommending this family run company.
Efficient, caring and thoughtful at a difficult time. Beswetherick's help was very much appreciated.
My Mum’s funeral
Truly amazing team of people, they made a sad and emotional time really special, from start to finish they followed our every wish perfectly and with kind consideration, thank you Beswethericks
A caring company
W J Beswetherick and Son were kind and friendly and gave us a very professional and extremely helpful service. From that first call they took care of everything. Simon Pennycook was even able to arrange the interment of the ashes the day after the funeral and arrange for a minister to hold that little service for us at the churchyard. We would have no hesitation in recommending this company.
First Class Service all round
A very professional, sensitive and compassionate service received by Beswethericks at this challenging time. Simon and Cindy were particularly helpful, and their knowledge and support to our family is and has been outstanding. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone else.
Fantastic service all round
Having used them for both my mum and my dad- if you're looking for a no-hassle, high-quality and friendly service, I strongly recommend Beswetherick's. If you're going through a difficult time, you can trust them to guide you through the process in a professional, understanding manner- never pressuring, and always helpful! Fantastic people, and a fantastic business. I can't fault them.
Excellent Funeral Company
The Staff at Beswetherick dealt with both of my parents funerals. My Mum 4 years ago and my Stepfather very recently. On both occassions they were outstanding in their professionalism, attention and support. During the initial visits to organise both Funerals their advice was consistant and constructive, taking into account the family's wishes. Both Funerals went off without a hitch and the staff in attendance were excellent. I would highly recommend them.
Highly recommended professional service
I couldn’t praise W J Beswetherick enough , they were sympathetic and very understanding . Cindy listened to what sort of service I required and was spot on with everything ranging from the flowers, funeral arrangement and the lovely Di . Although an extremely sad occasion everything ran smoothly and I couldn’t recommend W J Beswetherick highly enough...thank you.
Outstanding ..thank you
I was so overwhelmed by the kindness shown to me and my family during the preparation of my husband's funeral and the attention to detail and professionalism on the day and the after service was first class. In fact words cannot convey my gratitude for making a such a difficult occasion bearable and so dignified and special!
Highly rated – Beswetherick funeral directors Truro
I highly recommend Beswetherick funeral directors. They are experts in every aspect of arranging a funeral. Furthermore, they are extremely helpful and kind. They pay attention to detail and deal with everything promptly and give advice clearly. At all times I felt they listened to what our family wanted and needed, for example, there were specific things we wanted on the service booklet and they made sure it was first class with high quality photographs. It is a very stressful time for a family and to have people who take the strain is invaluable. I will recommend them to people I know.
Very high quality company and staff.
My family and I were very very pleased with the professionalism that Beswetherick & Son showed us throughout our sad ordeal. From the outset of ringing them I had a phone call back after a very short time.Everything was explained very clearly. I would highly recommend this company and would certainly use them again without dought. All staff were so polite and helpful which made things so much easier.Can,t thank them enough!!!!
Professional, thorough,organised and compassionate
We, as a family, had amazing help and support from everyone at Beswethericks during a difficult time following the death of my husband. We didn't know where to start. But Cindy asked what we wanted and they organised everything. Gloria was in charge at the service in the crematorium and she was marvellous. They recommended Di, the lovely vicar, who was absolutely fabulous. It was perfect. They were professional, thorough and compassionate. We would definitely recommend them.
Took good care of both my parents and our family.
Beswethericks looked after both my Father 24 yrs ago and Mother, who passed away in March 2019. I met Cindy when I was 13 after my Father had past away and again now age 37 for Ma, it was ahuge comfort to know Ma would be in Beswethericks care also. Everything went perfectly for both parents services and I'm eternally grateful for everything that they did for my parents and the comfort and impeccable service they provided to us the family in these dark times.
It was mum's wishes to use Beswethericks but to be honest I would’ve used them regardless. They are a family business who have been around for years, one you can trust to get things right. They were warm and friendly, supportive and kind and extremely professional at all times. Their guidance was invaluable and you definitely need it at a time like this. Thank you so much to Gloria, Cindy, and Simon and all the wonderful staff.
WONDERFUL UNOBTRUSIVE SERVICE, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
We received such wonderful service and attention while arranging my fathers cremation. The complete attention to detail was outstanding and unobtrusive but excellent service we received throughout organising and during was fantastic. We would highly recommend their service.
Simon & the whole TEAM at Beswetherick’s were simply amazing. At a very difficult time, they helped me & my Wife arrange my Mother’s send-off with dignity & looked after Mum for the period between her passing & funeral allowing us access to see her & say our farewells..... If Google did more than 5 Stars then I would give them more......
Excellent service at every stage
At a very difficult time, they offered a sympathetic, efficient and imaginative service. Cindy made a number of very helpful suggestions and the end result was a funeral that matched all ourhopes and expectations. A number of friends have commented that it was the kind of service they would wish to have. We could not have asked for more.
Excellent care and support
It is never an easy time when a loved one passes away but from the moment I made contact with W J Beswetherick, nothing was too much trouble and all their staff were prepared to listen, makesuggestions and give valuable support. Their efforts made a challenging time easier as we could leave them to get on with the arrangements and not have to worry about things. Throughout the process all went smoothly and the service we received was caring and professional. Thank you.
My husband and I are very pleased with the service provided by beswethericks. We did not know quite what to do and being professionals they helped us give our mum an excellent funeral. I would highly recommend. Very friendly and extremely helpful.
We found this firm very understanding and sympathetic paying attention to the wishes and details of my wife. We were kept informed at all times of developments. They were punctual and smartly turned out. Their efficiency made our sad time more bearable.
Very Understanding and Patient
Cindy, Simon and all the team at Beswetherick's were so patient and supportive in helping me organise my Dad's funeral. They were understanding and caring all the way through, nothing was too much trouble. Thank you for making a very difficult time easier.
My sons and I found this firm very understanding and sympathetic not knowing what to expect. They were very friendly and extremely helpful, very professional. Thanks again
Excellent, professional service
My step mother and I would thoroughly recommend the service provided by Beswethericks. Our dealings with both Cindy and Simon regarding the death, funeral and cremation of my Father were always professional, courteous and sympathetic and we always felt that nothing was too much trouble for them. At obviously a very difficult time, you would be hard pressed to find a better service.
Beswethericks were extremely professional, friendly and reassuring at a very difficult time. Their advice and support was greatly appreciated and it made everything much less stressful, knowing that we were 'in safe hands'. Thank you to Gloria, Simon, Cindy and staff.
A job well done
This is a family run business of long standing ........and it shows .......nothing is too much trouble , their attention to detail ...however trivial ...is second to none. Very professional and a joy to deal with at what was a very difficult time. Beswethericks did my mother's funeral and celebration of her life with kindness , care and consideration . We would definitely use them again. .......although we hope it won't be in the near future !! Can't recommend Beswethericks highly enough
Gloria and Cindy provided wonderful care and attention in sorting my Mother’s funeral. The advice and support provided by this family run business was exemplary and took away the worry. The staff team were sensitive and professional and Mum was looked after right to the very end.
The Thornton Family
The Thornton family Thank you all so much at Beswetherick for the helpfulness and kindness you all showed us from the very beginning until my Dad’s final farewell. Nothing was to much trouble and our family will be forever grateful.
Understanding, thoughtfulness, sensitivity, efficiency and attention to detail
I had never arranged a funeral before and had no idea where to start after losing my Mother on October 28, 2019. A friend of Mum’s recommended Beswetherick’s and from the moment I telephoned them, I felt at home. They were very professional without being patronizing and explained the process in detail and answered all my questions in a sensitive, helpful way, providing options and estimates, and once the Registrar provided the green certificate I made an appointment and met Gloria in person. It was as if she held my hand and guided me through the planning and all the red tape involved. A Celebrant was chosen in accordance with my Mother’s wishes and visited me at home to discuss the details of the service. Everything was organised to perfection, carried out without a hitch and we were guided through probably one of the most difficult of occasions, seamlessly, by the Funeral Director and Beswetherick staff. Thank you all for your professionalism, I can’t recommend you enough!
Excellent service from Beswethericks - kind and very caring staff and attention to detail. The whole funeral process made so easy for our family which helped considerably on the day. Thank you.
First Rate Company
First Rate service from an efficient & compassionate company. Highly recommend
W J Beswetherick & Son Ltd gave our family personal caring service at a sad time
The owners and staff at W J Beswetherick & Son Ltd gave us service that was second to none. Nothing was too much trouble and our requests in relation to my husband's wishes were carried outto the letter with care and compassion.
W J Beswetherick caring at its best.
It’s simple to say that the company were outstanding especially at this difficult time both for me and with the covid virus as well. The company dealt with all my wishes with the utmost grace, nothing was too much trouble. I can honestly say they made a very difficult time a lot easier than I expected. Very professional but also very caring. Thank you so much
First Class service throughout
The professional, respectful, efficient and kind handling of my dad’s funeral was truly excellent and made an extremely difficult time so much more bearable. Nothing was too much trouble. Everything was so smoothly dealt with and dignified and we would like to thank Simon, Cindy and the team for your kindness and efficiency.
I cannot recommend highly enough the quality of the service that we received from Beswethericks. Both my sister and I were dealt with in a very sympathetic and professional way over every aspect of our late father's funeral arrangements. Nothing was too much trouble and we could not have got through such a difficult time without their help and guidance.
Lockdown funeral became a very fitting tribute
Simon proactively guided us through the possibilities of a lockdown funeral for my mother and sorted out the technology to enable distant friends and family to contribute to the service and to be with us on the day. All his recommendations were thoughtful and helpful. We had a very fitting ceremony and everything was as good as it could be. The whole family is very grateful to all at WJ Beswetherick for their support at a very difficult time.
The support, assistance and funeral arrangements that were put in place regarding my father's funeral made by W J Beswetherick were excellent especially at such a difficult time. Their understanding and help were of the highest order and I am please to say my father had a very good send off. Thank you to all concerened
W J Beswetherick & Son
I highly recommend W J Beswetherick funeral directors. From a call to them in the early hours of the morning after the passing of my father they provided a first class and professional service. Communication was excellent and nothing was too much trouble no matter how many times we spoke to them. The whole team showed the utmost care and attention at all times and we can’t thank them enough for this.
Friendly, caring and efficient service
Having used Beswethericks in the past, there was never any question about who we would use this time. From the very first point of contact the service was excellent - friendly, caring and efficient throughout. The restrictions due to Covid 19 were explained clearly and, in such difficult times, we felt we were in very capable hands. At no point were we pushed into having any extra services that would have added to the bill. Very refreshing! Hopefully we will not be needing these services again in the near future, but wouldn't hesitate to recommend Simon and his team to anyone else.
Excellent funeral service from a true professional
The service I received from Beswetherick was the epitome of professionalism, courtesy and efficiency. They dealt with my aunt's death just perfectly, particularly as I live in a different county. I particularly liked the manner and tone of Mr Simon Pennycook. I would recommend this firm to anyone. You will not be disappointed.
A perfect “send off” for Mum.
It seems odd to be writing that my Mum's funeral was wonderful but it was. From the moment I spoke to Simon on the phone to book them I felt confident that everything would be taken care of for us and it was. We were able to give Mum the send off that we wanted for her, not constrained by any preconceived ideas. The feed back that I have received from the family had been great, the most common word used is "perfect" which is what it was.
We sadly lost our son at 14 weeks of pregnancy and we decided that we wanted to have him cremated on his own so we could bring his ashes home. Cindy at W J Beswetherick & son was so supportive and caring from the first phone call. She talked us through everything step by step. Once she had collected our boy from the hospital she called to let us know where he was and that he still had his teddy bear with him, which was extremely important for us to know as it brought some comfort in such a difficult time. The service she organised was so beautiful and such a fitting send off for our son. I could not have asked for a more caring person to help our son and ourselves. Thank you Cindy for looking after our son 💙
