Thank you to everyone who attended the funeral of my dear mother, Glenys Evans, at Coychurch Crematorium, on 2 December 2020, to those who were unable to attend but who have contacted me with their condolences, and to those who have very kindly made a donation to The Salvation Army in lieu of floral tributes. My additional appreciation is extended to Rev. Phil Denyer for officiating at Coychurch, and of course to Michelle, Jonathan and all at Riverside Funeral Services for their great professionalism and personal support. With best regards, Alun.


Thankyou Michelle, Jonathan and team for the lovely funeral you gave my Brian and for your kindness and care at a very sad time be very proud of the service you give.


I would like to thank Michelle and Jonathan for the wonderful funeral you put on for my mother Ann Lewis on the 28th December 2018. My mother sadly passed away on the 17th December 2018. Being Christmas they sorted everything from vicar, flowers, order of service all within ten days. Their professionalism was above and beyond. They looked after Mam, she looked beautiful. The way Michelle and Jonathan and staff looked after us the family too, was above and beyond. When you all bowed to the casket as respect to my mother that was beautiful. I would definitely recommend Riverside Funeral Services. You were all outstanding and we would like to thank you so much, my mother had the most wonderful send off very much appreciated, Thank you so much,Heather, Robert and family x You are much more than 5 Star service !!


Initially I contacted Michelle at Riverside Funeral services in Porthcawl as it was conveniently located but I soon discovered I had made the right choice. Michelle and Jonathan took care of all the arrangements for my mum Sonia and guided me through a difficult and confusing time. I would recommend their services to anyone. Thank you both!


After losing my grandmother just before Christmas we had the hard task of organising her funeral, we fell in love with both Michelle and Jonathan, outstanding service from start to finish, they made the whole task easy, fluent, professional, and comforting. Everything was perfect and the attention to detail was second to none, nothing was too much to ask, we contacted a lot during the build up to the day, and they answered any query big or small. We used the new chapel of rest in porthcawl, more for convenience for us, but it was absolutely outstanding. We were so happy with the service, in the most tragic of circumstances. They really are worth their weight in gold. Many thanks all, family of the late Bronwen Davies.


My family and I would really like to thank Michelle and her team for the exceptional service they provided for my dads funeral. They were all absolutely fantastic and the personal attention that Michelle gave my mother during the funeral service was deeply heart felt.

Riverside Funeral Services proved to be around £1000 less than some of the other funeral services in the Bridgend area, but my family can wholeheartedly state that although not as expensive, the service they provided was second to none. If you require a professional, personal and caring funeral service to say farewell to your loved ones then my family and I fully recommend Riverside Funeral Services.

Thank you Riverside xxxx
