The combination of exhumation contractors and archaeologists working alongside each other produced an unusual project tailored to the specific circumstances of the site and our client’s needs.

We look forward to working with you on other collaborative projects in the future.”

Thanking you again for your dedication and patience.”

“I have just returned from my trip to Europe where I attended the funeral of my Father and uncle in Warsaw. It was a big event, beautifully organized and very moving.

Now I am back in the States I would like, once more, to express my deepest appreciation for taking the ashes of my Father and uncle to Warsaw and taking care so efficiently of all legalities concerning the exhumation that led to their burial in Warsaw.

I want you to know that my family and I are most grateful.”

“I am the officer in charge of the murder enquiry team that dealt with the investigation into the tragic death of Adjo Victoria Climbie. This was a particularly distressing case that featured prominently in the National and World press.

My colleagues and I realise how much personal time and effort you and your staff took ensuring that all the arrangements went as planned. May I take this opportunity to express my sincere gratitude and that of all my staff for your assistance.

This incident has undoubtedly touched the hearts of the nation. Your contribution has helped Victoria’s parents put the soul of their daughter to rest.”

Keith Niven, Detective Inspector

“On behalf of the family of Mr Haji Symeou, I’d like to thank you and your company for your assistance in this matter. Everything went off smoothly today and Ben arrived in plenty of time. One of the deceased’s sisters was very happy with the coffin and she wanted to thank you for that as she was unsure how her brother was going to be brought up to Northampton and the coffin surpassed her expectations.

Thank you again for all your help. It is much appreciated.”
