    Alison and Dominic communicated very well which helped the entire process run smoothly at this difficult time. I've already recommended Co-op Funeralcare, Newhaven to friends and neighbours.

  • 5 Michelle Smith 21st Jun 2022

    As per my email to yourselves of 16/6. Just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your help organising my Mum's funeral. Alison was so helpful and kind and made the process very easy for us which was greatly appreciated and so glad that we chose the robin pins which were loved by all those who received them. My brother was full of praise regarding his Chapel of Rest visit as said our Mum had been made to look lovely and very peaceful, despite her bruised face from her fall.


    The day of the funeral went very well and all staff showed huge compassion and attention to detail including the drivers and pall bearers who were very attentive, kind and understanding. I have emailed Sam Goodchild separately to thank her for her wonderful service, as she is so calm and reassuring. Also thanks to Ambers the florists who created the fabulous arrangements.


    The only sad thing was that the coffin was not as ordered as apparantly it was much heavier, which we were only informed on the day when the hearse arrived at Mum's house, and we were told that the pall bearers would be apparantly unable to lift the coffin and it would need to be wheeled into the chapel. Had we been informed sooner we could then have arranged for some of our family members to carry Mum, which they would have gratefully done as she was only a small woman and very traditional, which made us a little sad as we know she would like to have been carried in to the Dance of the Cygnets, rather than be wheeled in. Oddly we were informed the previous week that my brother's visit to see her in the Chapel of Rest had to be delayed until the day before the funeral due to an incorrect sized coffin, however assumed that the matter had been resolved ahead of the funeral.


    Also if we can offer feedback to the Downs Crematorium, some of the attendees were sadly unable to hear parts of the celebrants words and our personal poems so perhaps the microphone/sound system could be turned up a little louder to help others?


    We look forward to hearing from you soon to confirm when we are able to collect Mum's ashes.


    Kind regards


    Michelle

    Really found the staff so friendly, patient & helpful throughout the whole, at times so upsetting & painful process of arranging a funeral.

  • 5 John Seaman 20th Dec 2021

    Alison in our local the office and Rachel the lady on the day were both excellent.

    Alison superbly co-ordinated and arranged the funeral and provided excellent support to us. She was so lovely and kind to us, as well as extremely efficient and sensitive to our needs, and answered all our questions and queries.

    Rachel was amazing and so wonderfully good at her job. She was very respectful and professional, but also attentive and helpful to us on the day. She was calm and in control which was exactly what we needed. The team with her were also excellent and extremely professional.

    We really can’t fault anything about the service they provided.

  • 5 Stephen Seymour 8th Aug 2021

    I cannot fault the professionalism of the staff involved, very organised from start to finish, also caring and compassionate, I’m completely satisfied with coop funeral care. 
    We were a little let down by Lewes District Council, as the chapel at Newhaven cemetery was very dusty and lots of cobwebs, it hadn’t been cleaned in a while, also some of the plug sockets were not working, but as I’ve said coop funeral care was not at fault for this, Rachel at Newhaven was outraged at it and was going to put in a complaint to the council. But overall I would definitely recommend coop funeral care.

  • 5 Lesley Bull 3rd Aug 2021
