‘To Cliff who came to see us and taking all the worries away. I cannot speak highly enough of you.’

 ‘…mother especially wants me to thank you, for when she met you, you “gave her heart some peace” because she knew he was in good hands.’

Jamie Littlechild - Assistant Manager & Funeral Director

Jamie Littlechild

Jamie lives in Tonbridge with his wife and four children. He has close ties to Northiam with his wife’s family having lived there for over 7 generations. His life at home is busy with his family but he still manages to take part in his interests including the repairing of vintage clocks, particularly Victorian and Edwardian mantel clocks and has a keen interest in astronomy and science. Over the years he has owned a number of classic cars and hopes to do so again in the not too distant future.

 ‘Dear Jamie, It’s not easy to know where to start, there is so much we want to thank you for. From that first visit you made to us. You listened to what we had to say with compassion and understanding. After you left, we felt there was no need to worry anymore as everything was being taken care of. Your professional, dignified conduct and caring thoughtful way has been much appreciated.’

 ‘Dear Jamie, I would like to take this opportunity on behalf of myself and my family to say a very big thank you for the kind, sympathetic, personal and professional service you provided for us. Your organisation of events on the day certainly helped us a great deal. I’m sure my Mum would have felt like royalty and would have been very satisfied with her send off.’

 ‘To Bridget, I know it’s your job but we all felt that the quality of your help at a very difficult time was outstanding and we felt that we could not have asked for anyone better to be there for us.’

 ‘Dear Bridget, I can’t thank you enough for the support you gave us (the family) at this sad time and at the unobtrusive way you conducted your duties at this service…Several people have said how beautifully everything was arranged. Thanks to you.
