My sister and I met with Helen who was very sympathetic and just so good to talk to.  We had to change our date for the funeral, and she was very helpful. She suggested a celebrant for us, who was ideal, as although we knew she had been active at the church Mum had attended in the past, it transpired that she had also known Mum.  We were kept up to date with anything that was needed on the day, and everything went  smoothly.  We could not have asked for more.

  • 5 Maria Ancell 26th Jan 2024

    The service we received from start to until our final goodbye to Eric. It was exactly what Eric has Nelly to do and the team and the funeral parlour made it possible.

  • 5 Elizabeth Challis 16th Jan 2024

    We were so pleased with the support we received from Helen when planning my Dads funeral. Helen was so helpful and very easy to communicate with. She made the whole process, which was new to us, much easier to deal with than we imagined. Ben was also very helpful and made us feel very confident everything was going to run smoothly. The funeral was absolutely wonderful for my Dad and we are all extremely grateful for Helen and Bens part in that.

  • 5 Phillip Huggett 2nd Jan 2024

    It all went very smoothly and with dignity. I could not have asked for more.

  • 5 Maureen Preston 2nd Jan 2024

    Our experience with Adela was extremely good - we were given excellent advice and help and treated with great respect. We cannot thank Ben enough for his help and advice 

  • 5 Michael Hill 11th Dec 2023

    Helen at Eastbourne Funeralcare looked after us very well. My friend had left instructions for his funeral which I was able to discuss with him and his wishes were carried out to the letter. Helen also managed to find the plot within the crematorium where his partner's ashes were scattered 19 years ago and where his ashes have also now been scattered. A big thank-you to Helen and all the team.

    Just one thing to take issue with and that is NO heating in the crematorium on a cold wet miserable December morning at 11am.

  • 5 Julie Guthridge 8th Nov 2023

    Thank you so much for making the funeral just what we wanted.  Your kindness, professionalism  and empathy was much appreciated.  Everything went off smoothly and John had the send off he wanted.  Thank you very much.

  • 5 Clare Goodman 2nd Nov 2023

    I mostly dealt with Helen, she was very professional, and caring, she kept us informed every step of the way. Kept in contact with regular phone calls and emails to ensure the day was exactly what we wanted. The day of the service was dealt with by Ben who was also very professional and run exactly the way we wanted it.
    I would highly recommend took alot of stress off for us as a family and am forever grateful.

  • 2 Rosemary Janes 23rd Oct 2023

    Very little communication. Insurers blaming funeral arrangers for delay and vica versa.After a long time of being passed around, we made a complaint and things finally got moving. Added a huge amount of stress to a grieving person.

  • 5 Patrick Johnson 17th Oct 2023

    I was impressed by the quality of the services offered by Funeralcare Eastbourne.
    At a very difficult time after the loss of my wife, I needed to be guided and reassured with all the arrangements regarding the funeral. 
    The staff at Funeralcare listened attentively to all my suggestions, accepted the modifications I made after our initial meeting and always showed compassion and support.
    The service went exactly as agreed. 
    Our family and friends expressed their appreciation at the professionalism to all involved.
    Thank you so much for making this occasion as « bearable » as possible.

  • 5 Kerie Jane Fielding 12th Sep 2023

    Helen, Paul and the COOP team were all amazing. Nothing was too much for them. You could just talk to them like family. No judging, no pushing no hard sell. Just smooth supportive assistance at a very difficult time. Thank you xx

  • 5 Reginald Holgate Martin 29th Aug 2023

    I imagine nobody feels good when a much loved partner dies. However Helen was gently sympathetic and raised my battered self esteem. Helen gave freely of her time and support and this was furthered by the celebrant, Louise. They helped me believe that while the focus of the day was, correctly, on Valerie, I, as the bereaved was the most important person there.
    The service was far better than I could have hoped for and they helped prevent me slipping into depression, which of course would have helped no one.

  • 5 Christopher Graham Meaney 29th Aug 2023

    Very helpful and professional. Made us feel completely relaxed and supported and informed our decisions. Made the process very easy and stress-free.
