- Funeral Directors
I have worked with The Plume for approximately two years having met them at the NFE 2019. They have proven to be immensely helpful, flexible, and quick to respond to our requests as a business supplying us with a range of colourful plumes for our cars. We frequently use their products and have seen the company grow in both product development and industry awareness. They are a professional, creative, and grounded company that offers a personal service to its customers and approach I credit them for! The Plume offers a medium of individualism for all funerals. Our customers love them. They add colour and flair to what can often be a grim and mournful approach to funeral care.
In such a sensitive time l could not thank you all enough for your efforts in regard to our daughters funeral service. I realise that your business is to provide a service, but I believe you went well beyond the typical expectation for such an event. I was impressed by the organisation of your operations and the way you made every accommodation to keep the family informed and make sure every detail was taken care of, all throughout a delicate time. Your service defiantly showed compassion at a time when a physically and mentally exhausted family was in need of a helping hand. The Procession Plumes added such a special and personal touch to our daughters funeral. Being made to feel part of the occasion is amongst the many things that are remembered about the day. I would totally recommend your service to anyone who would like to add a personal touch to their special day.
The Plumes were recommended to us by a family friend. We contacted the company and all though we didn’t give them much notice, Robin and his team pulled out all the stops to not only get the colour we wanted (Pink) but liased directly with the Funeral Directors on our behalf to ensure we had them on time. The Plumes looked amazing in the bright sunshines. They looked very regal, almost diplomatic in their look on all the cars. It didn't take long before we noticed the benefits of having these on all the cars that were part of the funeral procession. We were approaching a roundabout and a van that was halfway around the roundabout stopped and allowed all the cars with Plumes on to safely cross the roundabout together. Robins interaction with the family was courteous, respectful and discrete. All the family were extremely pleased with the service that Procession Plumes provided us on this sad day.
Providing our families with a dignified and respectful opportunity to say farewell to their loved-ones has always been at the core of what we do. Having each vehicle decorated with a plume merely enhances and underscores our aim and has become a welcomed addition to the look and feel of our service. We have used plumes on many occasions and have never received a criticism or a complaint. In fact, we have had nothing but compliments and have received funeral enquiries based on the use of plumes. Not only do we now stock the standard black plumes, but we often hire specific colour themed plumes to further recognise the favourite colour, football team or national flag of the deceased. Equally, the plumes have come into their own when keeping a cortege together as they instantly provide other road users with a uniformed visual point of reference to all the vehicles following the hearse. Working with Processional Plumes has been exemplary, and they have always pulled out all of the stops to get a last-minute hire order of coloured plumes to us on time and would highly recommend them and their product to any funeral director who wants to ensure that their vehicles stand out and provide families with a sense of pride
“Sadly, I lost my mother in law recently and we wanted to give my mother in law the best send-off possible. I had attended a funeral a few months before and remembered all of the funeral corsage arriving with beautiful black plumes on their cars. They looked wonderful. I researched black plumes for cars on the internet and found The Plume company came up. Robin who I spoke to couldn’t have been more helpful and discussed our needs as a family. The plumes were delivered to the funeral directors and on the day of the funeral we were all given the plumes to place on our cars Robin even accommodated my cousin with a soft top car! Wow it looked amazing 10 cars with beautiful plumes in the corsage I was so proud. I cannot praise the company enough polite courteous and open minded. We had a couple of technical issues and robin listened and took these issues on board and addressed them accordingly I would thoroughly recommend this company excellent customer service and support at a very difficult time. Thank you, Robin and team, you did our mother in law proud”
“Kane Family Funerals Ltd, acquired 8 plumes over a year ago – four in our brand colours of black and gold with magnetic bases and four in plain black with suction bases for following family cars Our plumes have attended every funeral since and are much remarked upon by family members, mourners in general and ministers and officiants across the West Yorkshire districts. We’ve always been proud of our ceremony and the plumes add a dimension of dignity that encourages other road users and also passers-by to give way or offer respect – similar to the response you will all be used to when the procession is horse-drawn. Families much prefer the additional plume set to the pennants we used to use and these help to keep vehicles together. We’ve found the team at The Plume to be so helpful. They are currently transforming one of my all black plumes into a branded black and gold plume so that our third limousine will be able to wear its hat when it joins the procession! I am looking forward to offering the range of themes to families. We already change our tie and kerchief colours where there is a theme, so it will be an extra special touch to display the theme in procession on the vehicles. I would highly recommend the Plume to any Funeral Director who wishes to add that extra special statement and dignity.”
“The Plume has been a great addition to our product range and families have found that it adds a unique and emotionally connective touch to their day.”
I used The Plume because I wanted to add small personal touches to a family funeral that made a big difference. On the day, The Plumes added an extra touch and more. The team at The Plume provided an excellent service all round, especially for a very difficult day.”
“From our first contact with the team at The Plume, l knew we had the right Company to help with making our Clients Funeral stand out. The product is amazing and everyone that attended the Funeral commented on the Jamaican Flag themed Plumes. We look forward to working with you again very soon.”
Where we had given up all hope on finding plumes for my mothers funeral in her native Jamaican flag colours, the Plume Company came to our rescue at the 11th hour..literally. 8 beautiful plumes on the vehicles which reflected the vibrant fun nature in which my mother had lived her life…this made all difference…thanks…we will certainly use you again…but hopefully not too soon!
“As this was a celebration of life for a person who has lived until almost 90 years old, The Plumes added a touch of class, particularly as she was considered a legend in her own right. The colour of The Plumes blended well with the colour theme on the day. The Plumes looked regal and distinguished, almost stately. The send off will surely be remembered for the coordination of the colours and the addition of The Plumes gave it another dimension”
We signed up to The Plume not long after seeing it at the NFE 2017, and have been working with them ever since. The Plumes are easy to use and we’ve noticed that other road users literally “give way to The Plume” and don’t “cut in” to the cortege because they can clearly see that any car with The Plume is part of the procession. Our families appreciate it as it gives them the opportunity to include additional family and friends as part of the day. The Plumes are now a standard part of the service we offer.
“We’ve worked with The Plume for over two years now and we must say it has been a pleasure! Nothing seems too much trouble and the team are always on hand to give guidance and advice when required. We were the first Funeral Directors in Leeds to showcase The Plume and it has definitely added value to our brand. Families are always impressed and we get lots of enquiries about The Plume and its origins. It also helps us to ‘stand out’ in traffic and allows our families to feel included in the funeral procession. In addition, The Plume adds choice to families, enabling them to colour theme the send-off and makes for a fitting and lasting tribute to their loved ones. Highly recommended!”
