Some of our customers have been kind enough to write and let us know how they feel about us or our products. This is a small selection.
I have just been contacted by a Heather Shepherd who recognised my surname as it turned out her grandmother and I were neighbours for the first 20 years of my life. I write to say thank you to 'Francis Frith' for enabling my memories to become so active and I recommend to any one searching for friends/relatives do not give up as Francis Frith makes it all possible. My impending visit to UK in December 2011 has suddenly become even better than I was expecting. The above has just been posted and since I realise that you may not read every posting I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your colleagues for the most wonderful site on the Internet.
Mr John Scott
Thank you for wonderful prompt service. I'm delighted with the quality of my pictures and with the speed of your services.
Came across your book quite by accident. What a wonderful trip down memory lane and also the added bonus of a free print which means my father's Xmas present is sorted! As he is Repton born and bred so a BIG Thank You!
To all at Francis Frith.I have just recieved my copy of 'I Remember When' which includes my entry about the Witch from my family's past (page 197, bottom right hand side).
As a hopeful as yet unpublished writer, it was fantastic to see my name in print! To know that other readers will see my own name has given me an enormous kick.
Also, the book itself is prooving to be a good read that I can pick up and put down at any time and I'll always find facinating stories, some of which have already brought back memories of my own.
My Dad is in hospital at the moment, so I'll be taking the book with me on my next visit to show him. He will be impressed with it too!
Thanks once again, all at Francis Frith for choosing to include my memory. I'll be using your site again to order very soon, and I'll sing your prais es to everyone I work with (whether they are interested or not)!

I must apologize for the lateness of response but have only just finished reading said book which I found most informative. The quality of the photographs seems better than previous and the layout of the pages led seamlessly from one to another. All in all a thoroughly good read which leads me to quote some previous author who said, “the book to read is not the one that thinks for you but the one that makes you think.” Your books certainly make you think.
I placed an order early Monday afternoon July 3rd and received it this morning (July 5th) despite the order including a book with a personal message on the flyleaf.
Even though we paid for expedited delivery this is still incredibly quick service!
The way life seems to work is that people are very quick to complain but slow to say thank you.
The map and the book are exactly what I wanted and I am staggered as well as being impressed at the rapid turnaround of and completion of the order.
Suffice to say, thank you and I will have no hesitation in recommending Francis Frith to anybody looking for a special gift or historical memento.
Mr Ian Rolfe
We received the package yesterday and we LOVE it. Thank you to you and your team on working with me on this and being so easy to work with to make sure I got what I wanted. The canvas was perfect, the writing clear and the map with the buildings marked is great. Turned into the perfect birthday gift which I had hoped for.
I have finally received my eagerly awaited copy of the book "I Remember When...". I was curious as to which story your company had published in the book. I was overwhelmed and astonished to see that you have published four of my stories, one of which is on Page 69. This entailed the story of the Majestic Cinema in Mitcham and my subsequent dream of going to the South Pacific. The pictures attached are in fact one of the islands I lived on for 14 years with my husband and two daughters - the youngest was born there and the eldest was 16 months when we arrived. We were there when Papua New Guinea became an Independent Nation and I have many experiences and memories of the island of New Britain - of course I have written these down - but are only for private publication. We left when my husband was murdered, but that is another story.
I continue to live in the Pacific and at the moment I am in Far North Queensland, Australia.
I will continue to write on your site on the different places I visited during my young years. I enjoy reading the book, it is very well presented, and learning of more experiences of the other writers in the book.
Thank you again for publishing my stories and I look forward to seeing another book published next year, whether it has any of my stories in it or not.
I would be grateful if you can forward my thanks to John M Buck.
I am writing to ask you to pass on my sincere thanks to everyone concerned in my recent order of 7 photographs from the Around Bournemouth book. The package arrived a few days ago and I couldn't be more thrilled with it! The most important thing was how beautifully it was wrapped and it arrived in perfect condition. When I unwrapped the photographs I was so delighted with them and kept looking at them over and over again. Thank you for providing such wonderful photographs - I can't wait to give them to my family.
The photo arrived here in A1 condition 3 days ago. It's even better than I expected it to be and I'm so impressed with the photography and the really fast and convenient transatlantic transaction. It has been a very good experience as well as a good example of British business procedures and courteous customer service at it's very best.The photo of my former home; the old Rectory that my children and grandchildren have never seen is a treasure. The photo is even more special to me as my father's church was razed years ago and the Rectory was remodeled beyond recognition at the same time. Thanks to your photographic skills it will all live forever for me and my family.
I just wanted to let you know my recipients were very happy with their calendars, and as a first-time customer, I was very happy with your service. Thanks!
I would like to thank you for your most wonderful books. For birthdays, Xmas, Easter etc they are great presents. Many thanks again.
Mr R Cummins
This is just a huge thank you for the impressive framed map I received yesterday. The recipient of this gift will be delighted I am sure. Thank you again for your great service.
