Dear Shane

I thought I'd send you a short note to say how delighted we were with the way you arranged my mothers funeral, Mrs Kath Betts. As an independent local funeral director the care and sensitivity you showed to my mother, family and friends was outstanding.

You had already spoken with my mother and I when she organised her funeral plan a few years ago.

The resultant funeral, was all that she and I wanted. You could not have shown myself and all the family more care and attention, throughout the whole funeral.

Funerals are never easy but having such a wonderful funeral director with a superb staff made the journey easier. The floral arrangement on the coffin was a masterpiece and the rooms and buffet you arranged worked very well.

Once again, Shane, all our thanks.

When you have lost a loved one (I have just lost my husband of 50 years) attitude of the people you have to deal with is of the utmost importance. I cannot imagine any better than Shane Mousley. I challenge anybody to find a more caring, more compassionate, more professional and more personal Service at what must be for anybody a difficult time.

And it should be mentioned that all also extends to the financial side of things; which after all is also very important. Very detailed estimate and in my humble opinion covering absolutely everything and representing very good value for money.

Thank you both so much for all the comfort and support you have given to us as a family over the last few weeks.



Shane and Sally were fantastic. They listened to what we wanted and we chatted for hours in a relaxed welcoming environment. They are amazing people and I couldn't recommend them enough.

Sarah Wilkinson and Luke Barnard


Can not praise them highly enough, thanks a million Poppy and Shane.

David Tucker


Very nice and professional people, and a honour to work with them.

I highly recommend the services of Shane Mousley and Son. When it became apparent that my father's medical condition was terminal and to be short lived, I sought a small, family run business that I felt would provide a professional, sensitive and compassionate approach to a very upsetting event.

As soon as I met Shane and his team, I knew at once that I wanted them to take care of dad. The support my family received from my father's death to the end of his funeral service was first class, and went without a hitch.

As my father was a World War Two, Wellington Bomber wireless operator, I wanted his funeral to reflect this. Shane encouraged us to view his service as a celebration of his life. Shane gave his full attention to every detail, from a blue coffin liner, to the booking of an RAF padre to conduct the service, and a trumpeter to sound the last post. The service sheets were professionally produced, and the venue for the wake was well chosen. Pride of place was a Wellington Bomber floral tribute, complete with a pilot, produced painstakingly by Sallyanne, Shane's wife, and now situated at the Wellington Bomber memorial in Melton Mowbray. Through the hard work and dedication of Shane, his family and team, my family can be proud that dad had the send off he deserved.

There should be a Shane Mousley & Son in every town across the Country. No words can speak highly enough for the service that Shane has provided us with the dealing of my brothers funeral. The understanding and compassion shown totally exceeded our expectations. I shall forever be grateful for making this highly emotional situation less stressful.

I would recommend Shane Mousley & Son to anyone.

Many thanks to you, your family and associates.

Shane and the rest of the team could not have done a better job supporting our family through the death of my Father.

At the time of my Father's death, my Mother was recovering from a broken hip in hospital and so Shane happily visited my Mother to ensure that he fully understood her wishes.

The whole team worked seamlessly with myself and my Sister and everything on the day passed perfectly.

They have a relaxed "nothing is too much trouble" attitude, and compliment this perfectly with the professionalism that gives you the confidence that everything will be taken care of.

A truly 1st Class service.

We were strangers to the Grantham area and pretty much batting in the dark. Then someone in the best position to know mentioned Shane to us and from the moment we called him our problems fell away. He didn't so much guide us through as take care of proceedings. Nothing was too much trouble in taking care of Derek; he kept us informed at every stage - no fuss, no uncertainty. He had everything under control all along.

He did more than provide a service; he enabled us to face up to a sad situation with a solid sense of reassurance. We felt better about the whole situation from the first moment we spoke to him.

And on the day itself Shane and his team with daughter Jennifer were almost part of the family and the whole procedure went impeccably. We could not have found better service anywhere. We heartily recommend Shane and his team, and his will be the only name would want to put forward to people faced with a bereavement. Our sincere gratitude, Shane, for such exceptional service.

Cliff and Dorothy


Shane & Sallyanne - We cannot express enough our thanks to yourselves and your wonderful team for all of your expert attention and sincere loving care that you gave to us. Our darling John could not have been placed in better hands.

Noreen & Tony


Shane & Sallyanne.

I find it difficult to put into words our appreciation of the extraordinary love, care and compassion, which you have shown to us since we trusted Chris into your care. At the time of utmost grief you were always there for us, 24 hours a day if necessary. You were patient and understanding, but always professional.

You have a real gift in what for most of us would be an impossible job. I pity all those in our awful position who do not have the comfort of your help. All of your family/team who we met were incredibly professional, you should be very proud of them. It was amazing that every person that visited Chris and then came to see us were astounded by the attention and help you gave them in their grief.

Thank-you to Granny Fox for the care shown, those hugs and words of comfort are something Jenny will always remember. Thank-you Sally (Blooming Fresh) for the beautiful work with the flowers.

With our greatest thanks and best wishes,

Roy, Theresa, Tash, Jenny and Karen.


"Everything that could have been done to make it easier for the family on this sad day was exceptional. The after care is superb and both Shane and Sally-Anne make you feel that you really matter to them. I feel that I have known them for ever instead of just a few short weeks. Well done to you all."

Barbara Solly


"I would just like to say one very big thank you to Shane and Sallyanne on behalf of my family for your professionalism and caring attitude you had given us over Davids death, it was first class. I highly recommend Shane Mousley & Son"

"How fortunate I was to have chosen Shane Mousley & Son to look after funeral arrangements when my husband Gordon sadly passed away in March. Each and every aspect regarding the family's wishes was carried in the most efficient and caring way possible. I am so grateful to Shane and his lovely family for all the kind help they gave us at that sad time, and their willingness to assist us in any way possible in the following weeks. Thank you Shane."

Christine Stanley


"Thank you for your kindness, professional advise and compasionate care which you gave our family on the event of mums passing. Our wishes were interpreted perfectly with much attention to detail which mum would have loved! Everything ran smoothly and you had a particularly good way with dad during this sad time."

Ursula Young


"Hi Shane,

I was with my Auntie today and she reminded me how nice the service was for my Father F D Parker and I remembered I hadn't expressed on behalf of Sandra, Alistair and Myself our thanks to you and your team for all the advice and organisation of the service and committal etc.

It really was a credit to your company and we are grateful to you for lessening the anxiety in that situation. Thanks again."

Doug Parker


"On behalf of my family I would just like to thank Shane Mousley & Son for their fantastic services when my brother sadly passed away.

From the start Shane made sure my needs were met and that everything was as we had asked. It made me feel a lot happier knowing I could visit my brother at my convieniance and when I was ready, day or night.

Shane and Harrison also made sure all arrangements were taken care of leaving me time to greive and for this I can't thank you enough. You have been there for my family every step of the way and I am extremely grateful for your kindness.


I would highly recommend Shane Mousley & Son and will 100% be using them in future."

"I cant talk highly enough of Shane and his team at Shane Mousley & Son, having thankfully never experience a bereavement before and arriving from Australia Jet lagged and grieving, I was greeted by the most caring respectful team. The dignified care and compassion that was given was excellent in every way. The understanding Shane Mousley and Son gave to our family's needs was perfect. Nothing was too much trouble, for example the night before the funeral I realised I had sent an old version of the order of service to print. In the calmest way possible Shane and his wife resolved the issues and the next morning the correct order of service was folded and in the church (thank you so much.) Shane specifically took a personal interest in helping us plan our ceremony to be everything our Gran would of wanted it to be. The process although upsetting was made stress free by Shane’s calming and friendly nature, you truly helped me through the most upsetting few days of my life. Any questions big or small they were there to help, With their help my Gran had the service she deserved. I would highly recommend Shane Mousley and Son."

"The Mousley family took care of me and my family when my father died above and beyond the call of duty. We had never had to sort out a funeral before and they took care of everything with such attention to detail and all my mothers wishes were carried out to the letter and advice given where necessary. They kept us informed of all costs along the way and just took away any worries. They are lovely people with great warmth which I now choose to call friends. I highly recommend x"
