Erin Howard 19th Feb 2024

I couldn’t have asked for a better service, Megan and the team were all so helpful and knowledgeable, my mum was respected and so were all my wishes and you can’t ask for more than that. Thankyou.

Mary Scales 19th Feb 2024

A well used funeral parlour. Very happy with the service having never had to arrange a funeral before. If I have anything to add it would too be absolutely clear at the outset what's needed to finalise the order of service. We spent too much time trying to input the information ourselves when we needn't have. All we needed to do was record page by page what was required, email and the company  do the rest. It’s a very upsetting stressful time so difficult to see a way forward clearly.  All in all very happy.

  • 5 Steve Gardener 9th Oct 2023

    Pre service arrangements handled with care and empathy...service on the day of the funeral excellent , really caring , thoughtful and compassionate....would have no difficulty in fully recommending

  • 5 Janice Hobbs 9th Oct 2023

    So easy to deal with at such a difficult time when my husband had died suddenly. They guide you through the process and remind you of little things you may have forgotten without a 'hard sell' approach. I walked out of the initial meeting feeling much better as 90% of everything was now arranged.
    The funeral itself was a completely smooth process, and the celebrant was easy to understand and did us proud with the readings we had written. The music we had chosen sounded lovely and the timings were perfect. Everybody commented on what a great send off it was.

    I would definitely recommend Co-operative Funeral Care, Old Harlow for when you are going through this hard process... they help ease the load.

  • 5 Andrew Boxall 26th Sep 2023
