We have always used the Co-Op Funeral Care for our family funerals and have always found them to be the most reliable, sympathetic and understanding at difficult times. The service provided by their Rainham branch for the recent funerals of both my parents was second to none, and their compassion and professionalism made the day more bearable.

    Showed care and empathy through the whole process

  • 5 Joanne Wheeler 18th Jul 2022

    Absolutely 💯 fantastic friendly staff . Couldn't wish for better service

  • 5 Caroline Grabham 12th Jul 2022

    The family received such a caring, compassionate and professional service. When I visited the Rainham branch, I was greeted with such warmth and understanding, it was more like I was talking to a friend. Nothing was too much trouble to ask for, and everything was explained to me along the way. The help I received in compiling mum's phot tribute will always be appreciated. Our mum loved to wear her pink and pearls, as a family we all decided to wear an item of pink clothing at the cremation. Rainham asked the Pall Bearers and drivers of the hearse and limousine if they would wear pink ties also, which they did. A small gesture but with such a huge impact on the family. We can not thank you enough. Talking with the team at Rainham, and Kevin, who performed mum's service, was comforting. They all helped to make a very difficult experience one that we can look back on, and say, yes, mum would have loved that. Thank you so much.

  • 5 Matthew Ede 11th Jul 2022

    Whilst never something to enjoy or look forward to, I can honestly say Havva and the wider team made it painless and seamless to organise what was a fantastic send off for my mum. The whole process was handled with the perfect mix of empathy, organisation and humour 

    Thank you :)

    The Co-op were very good with my brother & myself when we were arranging our dad’s funeral. All the staff were sympathetic, kind, caring & considerate, plus very helpful, and professional at all times. 

  • 5 Brenda Cordier 10th May 2022

    The staff at the Rainham Branch were excellent, they were so lovely and helpful and quided me through the process at what was a difficult time. The service we received was excellent and I cannot thank them enough for the care they showed.

  • 5 Elaine Homer 10th May 2022

    Your staff in Rainham Kent were extremely helpful. They made a difficult task for me , so much easier to deal with,  at such a sad and emotional time. 
    They found a celebrant who exactly met the my expectations . I had wanted a lady and one who had emotion and feeling in her delivery. The celebrant fulfilled all of these requirements.
     So a big thank you to the staff there , Havva, Rick and to Emma the celebrant. 

  • 5 Michelle Falconer 5th May 2022

    I can't thank Havva at the Rainham Coop enough for her help. She is perfect for the job and nothing is to much trouble. She made the whole process from start to finish much easier for me. She explained the whole way throughout the process and supported me when I went in to see my husband at rest.
    Rick rang beforehand and explained what would be happening on the day which I found helpful.
    On the day everything went so smoothly and if there is such a thing as a perfect funeral this would have been it. It couldn't have been better for my husband.
    Rick and his team were compassionate and understanding. They asked Robert's son if he would like to help carry him into the service, which he was very proud and honoured to do.
    Thank you to Havva, Rick and the team.

  • 5 Jackie Flynn 21st Apr 2022

    The lady in your Rainham office, Havva has a wonderful way in comforting customers and helping to make the best choices for us. She gave me all the information i needed every step of the way, no hidden extras etc. Matthew, their on site undertaker st the crematorium was wonderful too.  i would highly recommend this service. 

  • 5 Hayley Williams 12th Apr 2022

    The support that we received from Havva was fantastic, very caring and made the process that bit easier. Havva even made the effort to contact me after the cremation to check to see how I was. Could not fault her at all

  • 5 Louise Owen 21st Mar 2022

  • 5 Zena Honey 5th Mar 2022

    I was very impressed with the care and advice I received when I chose the Coop for my late husbands funeral.
    The celebrant they recommended for us was incredible and the service was just what we wanted it to be like.
    Thank you so much for your help.

  • 5 Caroline Short 14th Feb 2022

    Rick and Alice were amazing and my mums funeral was perfect 

  • 1 Roy Boosey 2nd Feb 2022

    I was informed that I would be told when the cremation of David would be performed but was not contacted until after the event.

    I paid to have his ashes sent to me by courier after the cremation and was informed this would be "within a few days". I am writing this a week after the cremation and still have not received them.

    If this is their idea of caring for the friends and family of the deceased they still hae a lot to learn.

  • 5 Kim Jolly 31st Jan 2022

    My mum’s funeral really couldn’t have been better organised and run. Rick and his team were excellent throughout - thank you all!

  • 5 Ian Fleckney 31st Jan 2022

  • 5 Karen Wootten 31st Jan 2022

    Very  good service and professional service  made sure at all times talking to us  when laying flowers out and collecting cards and to carrying casket  .

  • 5 Sharon Dennis 2nd Jan 2022

    we could not have chosen better. Such compassion .Everything was perfect.
    Thank you.

  • 5 Lynn Korff 30th Dec 2021

    I received a very personal, tailored service which completely reflected my late husbands lifestyle.
    Updates were provided, contacts always available.
    I thoroughly recommend Co- operative Funeralcare.
    I would suggest that the company include in their range, a more modern choice of eco cardboard coffins. We had to source our own.
