I cannot recommend highly enough the service provided for my family by Andrea at Carylon Funeral Directors. Upon my mother’s death my sister selected Carylon because the company was local and had excellent reviews. We feel so lucky that she did. Andrea is kind, gentle, well-informed on local services, experienced and highly efficient. Andrea carefully led us through the process and made sure everything happened just as we wanted. We had nothing planned and needed to organise the funeral quickly. With Andrea’s guidance and excellent organisation we provided mum with the quality and personalised service that she would have appreciated. All at a very reasonable cost too which I know would have pleased mum. Andrea knew exactly who to work with as a celebrant, how to obtain the type of coffin we wanted and who to choose to provide the flowers. I felt that Andrea would do anything she could to meet our needs whatever the day or time. Andrea really does go that extra mile for her clients.
We as a family cannot thank Andrea enough, she took all the stress out of an emotional day - she couldn't do enough for us. Extremely professional and considerate and we could not recommend her highly enough. Thank you very much Kathleen, Wayne and Myles Simmons
Sadly, I had cause to require the services of a funeral director recently. Having spoken to several, I settled on Carlyon Funeral Services as they immediately put me at ease and took time to listen to my needs. Nothing was too much trouble for Andrea and she kept me informed of progress at every step of the way. The sensitivity and compassion shown made a difficult time that little bit easier to bear. I cant recommend them enough.

I cannot recommend Carlyon Funeral Directors highly enough. From start to finish their service was kind, sensitive, professional and responsive. Together they helped us create a beautiful and uplifting funeral service and cremation entirely appropriate to what we wanted; Andrea's attention to the smallest details was much appreciated. Throughout, Carlyon were clear about costs and completely understood that we wanted something simple - true to my father's wishes - that would not involve considerable and unnecessary expensive. A big thank you from us to the whole team.

I sadly had occassion to have to contact Carlyon Funeral Directors Mount Hawke recently and am so pleased I did. They are the most gentle, caring and professional people you could ever wish to meet, and my family and I cannot thank them enough or indeed speak too highly of them. The funeral and service was very personal, had immense feeling and beautifully conducted throughout. Funerals are of course extremely sad and distressful times, nevertheless they were always there for us and gave the most unbelievable support throughout as they still continue to do so today. I was pleasantly surprised at the overall cost particularly having regard to the high standards throughout. When the time comes contact them you simply cannot go wrong. Lane Family

I can not thank Andrea enough for everything she did for my Dad's funeral. From start to finish she took away the worry and stress that so many have at such an upsetting time. Nothing was too much trouble, and because of this I was able to focus on other things... I will forever be grateful for all that she did for myself and my family 🙏
