A word from our customers

We are always grateful and proud to hear back from you about what you think of our products or the service you have experienced. Here is what just a couple of you have told us. Read more testimonials.

I just wanted to email you and say 'thank you very much' for being so helpful with my last minute Warlingham picture order on Thursday 27th April. Although Francis Frith were not able to offer a Saturday delivery, I really appreciated your willingness to still take my order, while I arranged my own courier collection, and doing all you could to make it work. Even taking the trouble to ring to say you had yet to receive the parcel label from me, (which had been held up in the cloud).

I can report that the picture was delivered to me Saturday morning and it looked really good. It was for a 70th birthday present of a family Friend. I wrapped it up and was then able to take it along on Sunday lunchtime for the celebration meal.

The next day I received an email from our friend, thanking my Fiancee and me for a 'kind, thoughtful and interesting gift' and that they had 'spent a bit of time' (that day) 'checking out what buildings are still in the vicinity of the Green.

Thank you Andrea, thank you team in the workshop for the quick turn around, and thank you Francis Frith.

Hi there, Thank you for the beautiful Burleigh print from the 1950s which arrived safely this morning. It is for my husband for his birthday in a couple of weeks and I think he will love it. I was really lucky in that the view this photo looks out on is actually our house!! Interesting to see how much it has changed over the years! Many thanks for an excellent service. I will recommend you to my family and friends

I have just received today my free photo of Lord Street, Southport. Although I no longer live there, Southport will always be home and it is lovely to have some memories of the old place! Thank you for sending it so quickly.
