  • 5 Sandra Godwin 17th May 2022

    I found Coop Funeralcare very helpful at this sad time. In particular Stuart Pilkington. I wanted something special in the way of a coffin for my husband who was Welsh and a bespoke coffin was suggested of the Welsh flag. Nobody had ever seen anything like it and it was the right decision for me.
