I cannot praise the whole team highly enough. They were friendly, caring and efficient. Christine kept in regular contact to ensure we were happy with the arrangements for Mums funeral. Everything ran like clockwork on the day. Just perfect.

  • 5 Michael Hanna 14th Jun 2022

    Christine and staff were very understanding and helped us arrange Martyns cremation and courier service to bring Martyns ashes down to us in Plymouth

  • 5 Marion Bishop 6th Jun 2022

    We opted for a direct cremation via the Co-op and have to say it was a very professional and respectful process throughout. I would recommend 

  • 5 Bryan Gurr 6th Jun 2022

    Excellent in all ways. It was just a shame that when a mistake occured prior to the funeral, regarding overpayment, there was no back up. It took 5 days to get our money back and still not heard the outcome.

  • 5 Mary Tonkin 16th May 2022

    My husband wanted a simple cremation with no service etc, and it was very easy to arrange and dealt with sensitively.

  • 5 Carolyn Cassenelly 26th Apr 2022

    I found the service very efficient, helpful and sympathetic in enabling me to organise my mother's funeral as we wanted it to be.

  • 5 Janet Evans 20th Apr 2022

    From the time I went to make plans for my dads funeral they were very helpful, didn't rush me excellent service would recommend to everyone, I also have mi e plan here as well

  • 4 Diana Dorothy Betham 21st Mar 2022

    The people I dealt with were excellent at their job, sensitive, caring and efficient. The funeral and presence I was very pleased with and I had very good reports from people who attended and didn’t manage to attend. I had wonderful support from Christine and in her absence, Marilyn. Everyone was helpful and informative all the way through Carls last journey. If I was to be picky I was disappointed, after much discussion on the subject, that my son could not bear his father as he had wished. On the day he had to watch his father wheeled down to be committed with just his hand resting on his father’s coffin. This was not what had been promised. 
    That aside thank you all for making this sad time as easy as possible and I must now look to arranging my own funeral in the near future. 

  • 5 Lynn Frances Bentley 14th Mar 2022

    A very personal,supportive and professional approach throughout.

  • 5 Jackie Grinyer 7th Feb 2022

  • 2 Maurice Middleton 4th Jan 2022

    It is the worst funeral I've ever been to and it happened to be my wife's.
    From the outset I was told there would be a quiet waiting room whilst we waited for the hearse. I wasn't told where the waiting room was and was unable to find it. Cars dotted about the car park, with attendees in. They didn't know what to do. It was only at last minute when official gave any instruction to get under canopy as hearse was arriving. The service itself was impossible for me to hear, due to screen and acoustics and hearing system. Also awful for people who relied on lip reading. Was sad, although saving grace was the minister gave us a copy of what was said to take home.

  • 5 Denise Bryan 29th Dec 2021

    The service I received was respectful, considerate, compassionate and friendly.
    Nothing was too much trouble. I felt totally confident that my Dads send off  was going to be the best it could be. 

    I must say Christine at the Barnstaple office was extremely professional and compassionate,  she explained  thoughly all our options in a very sincere open way.

    Every detail of the funeral was what we asked for, even the order of service booklet was beautifully done.

    Thank you

  • 5 Margery Ann Fern 14th Dec 2021

    Signed up for a new plan for Mum.
