My Mum had requested a direct cremation and when the time came I rang the Co-op as a trusted and well known funeral service. From start to finish we could not have had more support or care. Karla was absolutely wonderful-empathetic, kind and knowledgeable. She assured us that, while no one from the family would be present, the service and the care Mum received would be the same as any other funeral service. The only difference was that we, as requested by Mum, would not be at the crematorium. My husband and I have decided that we too will use the Co-op for our own direct cremations when that time comes for us. Thank you Co-op Funeral Care.

  • 5 Kathleen Sandford Allan 9th May 2022

    From first contact Susan and Ashley were totally professional. Approachable, kind and compassionate. Susan spent time listening, and understanding what individual families face during a bereavement. Supported my family and I before, during and after the funeral. During a last visit to my relative Ashley offered to go and sit with me. This was very thoughtful, above and beyond my expectations. We had the ongoing support of a celebrant, Suzanne Nolan, who enhanced the service at the beginning and end of the funeral. She listened and wrote a piece that was both respectful and offered an insight into our family member. Definitely an asset to us all.

  • 5 Pauline Sowden 31st Jan 2022

    After the sudden death of my partner I was recommended the services of Co-op Funeral care, Blackburn by the Manager of Linden House Residential Care Home. I was contacted by Ashley and he immediately put my mind to rest. I found Ashley, Graham and Sue very helpful, considerate and extremely professional at all times. During an emotional and difficult time for myself I couldn't have asked for a more considerate, friendly, caring team. Excellent service and commendable attributes make this team something special.
