Our Service Offering


  • Thank you all so much for all you have done, everyone said how special you made it. Your care of myself, meticulous actions and the friendliness of you all always made me feel special. Thank you for taking the responsibility for all the planning from my shoulders and pulling everything together.

    Mrs H (Staffs Moorlands)
  • Thank you to you all for the excellent way you arranged the funeral. Everything was first class, nothing was too much trouble to you which gave me reassurance. There is no one who can provide such a first class service like yourselves.

    Mr A. (Staffs Moorlands)
  • On behalf of myself and my family I would like to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for taking care of mum. I have been overwhelmed by your professionalism and compassion during these difficult times.

    Miss S. (Staffs Moorlands)
  • J. P. Keates have served my family for generations and never has their level of compassion and service fallen below anything other than excellent. Your company has never stinted on its personal service, providing great professionalism with a personal touch. It's a big statement, but I really think of you as the “Rolex” of your trade. Our area is very fortunate to have you.

  • A personal thank you to both you and your staff for the excellent way in which you conducted all the funeral arrangements for my late Father. When one is faced with a sudden bereavement it is a great shock and it was very comforting to be so pleasantly received and well looked after by everyone at J. P. Keates and Son. All the funeral arrangements went seamlessly and it was very comforting on the day of the funeral to be guided professionally through the whole process.
