Your initial advice and questions were appropriate, sensitive and practical, explaining the options and what I needed to do. Your flower firm and print firm were excellent.Your staff at the funeral were supportive and dignified, and your driver kindly allowed us meeting time afterwards. You coordinated effectively with the Vicar and organist. Many thanks for professional yet personal service.

It was perfect. Kathryn Isherwood who is at the Haverstock Hill NW3 is a very lovely lady. Words fail me to describe her empathy, help and understanding that enable me to say a wonderful farewell to my brother. You simply are second to none.

Levertons were kind and sensitive to my needs for my Mother's funeral and very supportive every step of the way. The service was lovely and I believe done in the way my Mum would have wished for. Everything was handled so well and so professionally and the team were most kind and considerate on the day itself.

I’m actually lost for words… Absolutely amazing, I honestly can’t thank Barry white enough for the service I received at my mother (Susan’s) funeral. it was beautiful from start to finish, very professional caring and patient staff. Barry went above and beyond and did everything possible to make sure I was happy, informed and understood everything that was going to happen I’m so glad I chose levertons! Oh and not forgetting a big thank you to winston and general the horses! Absolutely beautiful! Samantha.

I had the pleasure under difficult circumstances to meet with Kathryn Isherwood, firstly, to pre-plan my sister's funeral, on a visit to London where my sister lived. Upon my sister's death, I made a second trip to London for the funeral. I was very pleased with the services both before and after my sister's passing. Everything went smoothly. I literally had nothing to worry about. Emails were answered promptly and satisfactorily. Kathryn even offered to drop off my sister's remains to a friend's home on the eve of my departure back to Canada. Thank you very much, Kathryn and Levertons, Hampstead.

I had been informed that there would be six pallbearers on Monday 13th June 2022. However, as we were entering the church two pallbearers were unavailable so I had to ask two friends to take their place. On the morning of the funeral the order of service leaflets were not in the church when the mourners arrived and a friend had to go to Leverton's in Maldon Road to collect them.
