  • “My brother had his 60th birthday party on Saturday night at the same time we let off the fireworks containing my mum’s ashes. I must say what a fantastic set of fireworks they were, at the party was the five children plus grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren. My mum’s brother and wife were there plus all my brother’s guests at his house and everyone was gobsmacked with the display. Thank you once again”

They turned a potentially sad occasion into a happy one, a true celebration of my mum’s life. I just wanted to thank you and the company for your help and for giving my mum the send off she wanted.”

  • “Just wanted to say a huge thank you for everything. It would have been Kirsty’s birthday yesterday and we had friends and family round to celebrate. Everyone was amazed at what a fantastic display it was, so much more than we could have hoped for. You were super efficient and made the whole process very smooth. Would highly recommend!”

  • “Hi Denise, I’ve been meaning to email you to say thank you so much for the fireworks you did for us with Caz’s ashes in. They were fantastic and the highlight of our celebration of Caz’s life that we had on November 5th, which would’ve been her 49th birthday. We had all her friends and family there and with some champagne and a few cocktails we sent her off in style. Everyone was so impressed with the rockets and letters, in fact several people thought it was a fantastic idea for themselves when the time comes…

    Once again our heartfelt thanks for allowing us the chance to honour Caz’s wishes in such style.”
