I am proud to have been in the funeral profession since 1992. I am also proud and honored to have helped so many people with
funeral arrangements, who in return have always been
appreciative for my assistance.

"I have, unfortunately, had the need to appreciate the services offered by Paul twice in the last few months. Firstly, at the funeral of a very dear friend. Secondly, on the sudden and unexpected death of my dear partner Alan. Obviously the whole experience of loosing a much loved partner is awful beyond description, but Paul helped make the processes bearable. Every request was met with the same calm, reassuring manner. He remembered every small detail, and was kind beyond the needs of his profession. My thanks to him."

Paul was very professional, understanding and I felt that his services were personal to me and my family at this very sad time.

(B. Miller, Deal, 2009)
"Paul organised and carried out a thorough and efficient funeral. He was always caring and attentive. The flowers he provided from a local florist, were lovely and the butterfly was a beautiful touch. Paul even volunteered to place some of the flowers, from my mum's cremation service, on the grave of my father and sent two photos showing them. We changed the venue for the cremation and this was no problem. I obtained 3 quotes and Paul's was easily the best value. I recommend Paul and would assure you that you will not find a better service".

Once again thank you very much Paul."

"I would like to recommend Sullivan and Son. Paul and his brother Alex are two kind considerate and very caring people .Nothing is too much trouble. Having never dealt with any funeral arrangements before both were so helpful guiding me all the way, listening and understanding at a very emotional time, answering all my questions , taking care of all the arrangements and making sure my uncle's funeral was exactly what we wanted it to be. Julie French whom Paul recommended is a beautiful person who listens and has such a calming effect on people she meets. A beautiful service I can't Thank You all enough x"
K. Igglesden (Bethersden) 2012
"I used Sullivan & Son 12 Beaconsfield Road Dover Kent CT16 2LL on the 9th February 2012 for my Mother Mrs D Molineux
They were extremely efficient, caring an considerate. Everything went smoothly. They made the whole experience easier, at a very difficult time. I found them on the internet after searching for other Funeral Directors which, compared to many others, they were much cheaper for the same service. Their web page is very easy to understand and you can tailor your needs to what ever you wish and see what you are paying for. Thank you Paul Sullivan."
