From the day we met Alice to go through all the funeral arrangements right up to and after the funeral took place the service from Co-op Funeralcare was absolutely excellent. The care, attention to detail and personal service given to myself and Wendy I really can not fault. Everything went as well as anyone could hope. I had so many family members come to me to say what a lovely service and care.  Thank you Co-op funeralcare. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Co-op Funeralcare.

Alice and Nicki, of Yate Co-op Funeralcare, both did their utmost to ensure a very difficult time was made easier, My husband’s death was sudden.  They understood what we wanted as a family and advised when, due to time and nature, it was not a good idea to have an open coffin when doing the final visit for family to say their farewells.  Their recommendation for the celebrant, Dave Chapman, could not have been better and we all appreciated his input. He listened well and seemed to understand the person my husband was to us as a family.  Thank you Alice for asking for a photo so you could see how he looked in life so even his hair could be put the way he wore it in life, for putting the final cards and labels on the flowers.  To Nicki for ensuring the final journey went smoothly and helping those who wanted to be bearers to complete their task with dignity for my late husband, their father, Grampy, and friend. The calls to keep me updated kept me on an even keel and the final call the day after the funeral also helped as I had been feeling lost. I would recommend Yate Co-op Funeralcare, a small team who give their all and treated my late husband with respect. Thank you

    Excellent service to guide us through the process of mother's funeral arrangements. The staff were caring, compassionate & professional at all times. From the difficult decisions about the choices we had to make, to the service itself & supporting us in the time afterwards they were there to help us whenever we needed it. Can't thank them enough!

  • 3 Julie Oakley 4th Oct 2022

    We couldn't fault the funeral and support we had when our mum died last November.
    We assumed we would have the same support. We were disappointed that phone calls were left unanswered, didn't always have the same people to deal with. We had to wait a long time to before we could go and see Frank. It just added to the stress.
    On a positive, the day of the funeral went really well

  • 5 Richard Pearson 5th Sep 2022

    It was never going too be easy arranging the funeral for  my wife of 47 years. However the kind, caring and sensitive guidance encountered from Alice, Nicky and Lindsey the Celebrant who they recommended could not have been surpassed. Many thanks for what was it seemed to be doing much more than just ‘doing your job’. You assisted so much in giving my Carol the ‘send off’ she was so deserving of. THANKS.

  • 5 Allan Peters 2nd Aug 2022

    It was a lovely service in celebration of our dear mother. It went exactly as we'd hoped and planned and the whole process from start to finish was made so easy for us that we are truly appreciative of how it was handled.

  • 5 Patricia Cotterell 1st Aug 2022

    They were very helpful and caring. Could not have got any better service. Thank you, you were most kind at a difficult time.

  • 4 Shirley Fisher 14th Jun 2022

    Overall we were very pleased with the service we received. Lewis was very professional and attentive and we would recommend the services of the Co-op.

  • 2 Belinda Newham 6th Jun 2022

    2 stars given because we had a funeral. The lack of communication caused a lot of stress and anxiety and not knowing the final plans until the morning of the funeral was way too late. Unfortunately some of these plans were not communicated to those who actually worked the funeral on the day.
    We had to do a lot of chasing up to ensure our wishes were being followed.
    Deadlines weren't communicated clear enough or with enough notice.
    Lewis is lovely and doing his best but one person in the branch is not enough expecially when he had to cover another branch the day before the funeral and we had zero communication. There was no one available to receive the floral tributes as requested to arrive the day before.
    There were a number of family wishes sadly not carried out nor was there any communication as to why these were not followed through. A very poor show really and I am expecting some sort of compensation for all the stress.

  • 3 Christine Devall 6th Jun 2022

    They meant well but the organiser was clearly run off his feet so lots of lost emails and chasing-up required

  • 3 marguerite Colbeck 30th May 2022

    The actual care at the crematorium was excellent but it was very difficult to speak to staff to tie up details at the office. Often had to go through head office. The knowledge of the digital services provided at the crematorium, the digital facilities and costs was vague.

  • 5 Maureen Banyard 23rd May 2022

    From the moment we walked in the staff were very good. They spoke to us with respect and support

  • 4 Rex Brain 18th May 2022

    Unable to provide family car, disappointing

  • 5 Jonathan Sandy 10th May 2022

    Treated with genuine sympathy at a very difficult time. I was able to outline exactly what was appropriate for our family and they delivered. Lewis is excellent "front of house", he delivered exactly what was agreed. Mike led the funeral and was exactly what you would have wanted. Nothing but the highest praise for an excellent service and people.

  • 5 Sue Jones 9th May 2022

    I was impressed with the care and compassion I received throughout. Right from Lewis helping me to plan the details of my husband’s funeral, then Nick helping to put together such a wonderfully personalised service and finally Mark with his professionalism and warm humour as he guided myself and my family to and from the service. 

  • 5 Jacqueline Cleverley 26th Apr 2022

    Very helpful and kind. Nothing was too much trouble and everyone were very professional and understanding. Would highly recommend at such a sad time and loss of a loved one. Thank You.

  • 5 Carol Boulton 20th Apr 2022

    I was absolutely blown away by the help and support from start to finish. Lewis talked me through everything he was patient and extremely kind.

  • 5 Susan Scriven 12th Apr 2022

    Very professionally organised. All was perfect for my mum Thank you

  • 5 Lynn Noble 28th Mar 2022

    We were very impressed with the level of service and care that we received from Lewis at the yate office he was very helpful,kind and helped both my son and myself through what is a horribly sad time.
    Lewis listened to what we wanted he asked about my late husband l noticed that when he spoke about my husband he spoke about him in the present and not in the past tense which so many people do thank you for that,
    Lewis found us the Celebrant and he ,David Miles was just the right man for us brilliant again thank you.
    I would always recommend the Co op to friends and family
