  • 5 Sheila Finch 12th Feb 2024

    Hannah and Chris were lovely and caring the only thing I was disappointed with were the flowers which we went on the recommendation of the Co-Op certainly wouldn't recommend the company if I'd have known what they would have been like would have gone elsewhere!

  • 5 Bernadette Mckechnie 5th Feb 2024

    From my first meeting with Hannah, I felt cared for and comfortable. Hannah did an amazing job, with just a small amount of help from Angela. They were both lovely. Each step of the way was made easy for me and my family. Hannah was very prompt with all my questions and all the actions that were needed. Nothing was too much for her. I think she'll make a great Funeral Arranger, she is already. Chris, the Funeral Director, was as kind a soul as both Angela and Hannah had described him. Nuala, the Celebrant, was chosen by Angela after talking to me and asking what sort of person I would like. She fitted us up perfectly. And what a perfect funeral we had. The best day for my darling husband to be remembered with such happiness and deep emotion. Many, many thanks.

    Very pleased with the service I received.
    The funeral director (Chris) was a perfect gentleman and put me at ease from the very start of the funeral, and feel that we gave my husband the best send off he could have wished for.

    During every stage of the process the Director and his team gave excellent help and advice. Their approach was professional but also very considerate and caring. They helped me through a painful time and the service was beautiful and a fitting memorial to my deceased husband and a lovely memory for me. Thank you so much,

    Everyone was extremely caring and sensitive and treated mum with such respect. The organisation of everything was so efficient that it saved us from worrying. We were very impressed with how well organised it all was. I would like to especially thank Chris who did a magnificent job on the day. He gave the funeral all the gravitas that mum deserved and treated the rest of us so gently.

  • 4 Richard Charles Steel 1st Aug 2023

    My Mums recent funeral arrangements were made with care and understanding throughout, with everything explained very clearly.
    On the day of the funeral the service provided was without doubt excellent and understanding at all times.
    All very professional as you would expect.
    Only slight hiccup was a couple of weeks later when we picked up the ashes and they had been put on the wrong urn.
    At the time it meant we had to rearrange the internment for another day which was rather stressful.
    However all was sorted out a week later to our complete satisfaction.
    Would highly recommend the Co- op to anyone in the future.

    At such an emotional time,my sister and I were helped to arrange our mother's funeral with care and kindness.

  • 5 Amy Sams 24th Jul 2023

    Very good - funeral plan was already paid for by my mum. The only stipulation was that they ideally choose the date and time which was a bit of a downfall however i suppose that’s all part of the price. Chris the funeral director was lovely.
