Read what our clients have to say about our service...


Dear Colin and Peter,
Thank you for the seeds you sent with a card recently. Since losing my father, John Twin, in July 2016 and my mother, Diana, 9 months before my father, both at Inglis House at the Wynyard Care Centre, we decided to sell our 5 acre property in Seabrook Rd and have now moved south to live. The seeds and card reached us here.
We will not not forget your care for us - at those times. We thank you for the dignity with which you treated my parents after each death and the thoughtfulness you showed during each of their funerals. My brother and I really needed your support prior to the funerals and were grateful for the professional way that was handled.
We were especially grateful that you were able to assist by arranging for my mother's funeral to be held at the Care Centre Chapel. It made such a difference to my father, therefore all of us, enabling the staff to grieve also. Mum was much loved at the Care Centre.
Thankyou for managing not just our family members, who travelled from Hobart and Canberra, but also friends whom we had not expected to attend from Hobart and Shearwater, on that day, and for making your Ulverstone chapel available last July for Dad's funeral.
Yours sincerely,
Rosemary and Andy Farrell
Thank you Noel for the caring, patience and understanding shown to us all on arranging the service and funeral for our beloved Dion. The professional way you carried the whole funeral out was sincerely appreciated,

Dear Peter and Vincent's Staff,
We, the family of Desmond Dare Badcock wish to express our heartfelt THANKS for your Funeral Services to us, Des' family. We were most grateful for the faithful way in which you setup and carried on in the bucketing rain, ably supporting us, at Des' Burial in the Yolla Cemetery on Thursday Sept 29, 2016 and then at the Yolla Uniting Church for the Thanksgiving Service, with no power! It was a BIG day, and most memorable in so many different ways! Des told us not long before he died that there was more rain to come yet! He was correct and we ALL endured it!!
We were touched, Peter, by the way you walked ahead of Des the night you collected his body from his beloved Yolla farm/home. "God has them BOTH in His keeping, we have them BOTH in our hearts and memories, forever!"
With Kind regards,
Desri and Brian Morgan & John and Marion Badcock and their families.
Dear Scott and those who helped with the tasteful compassionate funeral of my father Athol Ling I would like to pass on my heartfelt thanks. To the young man left behind to pack up in the pouring rain, I hope you didn't catch cold! Vincent Funeral Services are wonderful and I'm glad we used you, kind regards,
Christine Gannon (Ling)

Dear Noel,
We wish to acknowledge with thanks your kind offices during the funeral service for our mother. Your actions such as re-making the music CD, placing a chair for David, collecting up the memorabilia after the service, supplementing our flowers for scattering, and your excellent suggestion that we have the headstone refurbished helped to smooth the way for us during a very intense day. Thank you also for staying voluntarily to the end.
We noticed and appreciated these things!

I just wanted to say thanks to Peter.
My grandmother (Margaret Titcombe)'s ashes were interred yesterday, and there was a scheduling issue. When my mother (Cherie Neilson) called Vincent's, Peter dropped everything and came straight over, and performed a lovely and thoughtful ceremony (with no prior notice).
I just wanted to let you know how much we appreciated yesterday, and the excellent service we have received from Vincent's since my grandmother's death (November 2015).
Your care, understanding, and professionalism has made a difficult time much easier.
Regards, Jennifer Atkinson
I wish to express my sincere thanks to all the Vincent Funeral Services staff for all your help and advice and for the beautiful ceremony which was so sensitively and tastefully carried out.
Rita Hill

To Mr Peter Vincent, Colin, Jason and Kay.
I wish to say thankyou for the excellent supportive compassionate friendly and yet most professional service given to me in relation to my placement of a new family plaque on my Dad's ( Harold Abraham Thow) grave site at Wivenhoe Cemetery recently.
I am so very happy with the final result.
Well done everyone
Yours Sincerely, Lesley Thow
Hi Mardi
On behalf on George, Jenni, Wayne, Chris, Carolyn, Meg, family and friends I would like to thank you for Tina's funeral yesterday. Your professionalism and empathy at this sad time was impeccable and to fit the service in at such short notice was a blessing.
Thanks Mardi
PS. The flowers were lovely, the service and afternoon tea were perfect.
Good evening Mardi, and staff at Vincents.
Thank you all for your card and the packet of flower seeds that arrived today to mark the anniversary of Dad's death. It has been a sad time, and has been made more difficult by the tragic death of a close friend in a farm accident last Friday.
Your thoughtfulness has been a ray of sunshine, and we have greatly appreciated the kind gesture.
Regards The Fraser family
Dear Noel,

Just wanted to say a huge thank you to all at Vincents, in particuar Colin and Adele who were just fantastic with their support, guidance and personal service over the past 2 weeks.We are all so thankful. Mum loves the folder provided too. I’m also sure dad was most impressed by you all!
Kindest regards, Jeanette Manson (Saltmarsh) and family
Evening Mardi
Just a note to thank you again for today's service. I was a little concerned that some of the 'oldies' might find it a bit 'different' but several of them went out of their way to tell us it was 'the best funeral they'd been to'. And that would have made Dad happy so...
The bottom line ... Dad would have enjoyed it.
Regards Ian
Dear Noel,
Just a personal thank you to yourself and all at Vincent's who assisted us at the time of mum's passing. Your attention to detail and ability to coordinate us in achieving a memorable funeral service was outstanding.
Warm Regards, Bob, Vicki, Russ, Anne and Families.
Dear Noel,
Many thanks to you and your staff for Russell's farewell which went off just as he would have liked it. We were very impressed with all the IT skills presenting the video and music at short notice and the lovely DVD you gave us.
Best wishes, Mary and Bill Shepherd.
Hello Peter,
Words cannot express our appreciation for all the help and guidance you gave the family in the event of Eileen's funeral. Thank you so very much, and I do regret that I didn't get to meet you and thank you in person.
Kindest regards, Kathy Watt.
Dear Peter,
My family and I would like to thank you and your staff for the very personal and professional way you dealt with us on the passing of our much loved father. Your dedication to your work, attention to detail and thoroughly stress-free approach to what we perceived as an impossible process to deal with, was a revelation in a truly dark time in our lives. Your Parklands chapel was just the perfect place for us and a joy to the senses: I cannot commend you highly enough on such a serene environment.
Friends and family here on the mainland were somewhat surprised to hear our story and equally impressed by the professional presentation of all the products supplied to us. You and your team are an absolute credit to your profession, community and yourselves, and once again thank you so much for your kindness.
Kind regards, Glen Hyde.
Peter,
Our family would like to say a very special 'thank you' to you and your staff for facilitating a very professional and dignified 'goodbye' for our dearest father and grandfather...It was perfect! and I know my father would have loved it!

...Also thanks for the day before the funeral when I rang you numerous times, your patience and honest answers were greatly appreciated. I know it's your job and a very hard one at that, but we feel you have done more than enough to make a very difficult time just a little bit easier...
Craig & Irene G.
Dear Jenny,
On behalf of... I want to sincerely thank you for your compassion and assistance in helping Mum cope with her loss. I know that Mum was moved and very grateful for the way the service was conducted, and for the way you and Jan handled all the arrangements. Although it was a very stressful and distressing time, you made a real difference. The funeral was exactly what Mum wanted; simple, dignified; and private. Personally, I am very grateful for the assistance you gave...Not having to worry about the details meant we were better able to look after Mum.
