Everything was superb from beginning to end. The kindness & compassion from Sarah & the rest of the team was second to none. Edna was laid to rest beautifully—- thank you for that. Would recommend the services of he coop every time.

Marilyn Coote 19th Jun 2019

The meeting with Alan at the Co op was very reassuring and he made my husband and myself feel quite relaxed about the whole thing Andrew Key who was suggested by Alan gave a perfect service. Only one thing that was a little difficult, which was waiting 4weeks from Mum's death until the cremation.

Bridget Rowe 10th Jun 2019

From start to finish, excellent service. At this difficult time for our family we found your service kind, compassionate, understanding and nothing was too much trouble. Thankyou

  • 5 Michael Teasdale 10th Nov 2018

    Not having arranged a funeral before I didn't know what to do. The Co-operative Funeral Service at Boston, Lincolnshire immediately took that worry off my hands and gave me full confidence that my wife's funeral would be done the way she wanted. From the time they collected my wife from home to the time the curtains closed at the crematorium they were friendly, considerate, sympathetic and totally professional. Everything was done smoothly, quietly and with proper dignity and respect. I strongly recommend the Co-operative Funeral Service.

    Debbie Staff replied
    Dear Mr Teasdale, Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a 5 star review and for your lovely words.

  • 5 Ian Scott 15th Sep 2018

    All arrangements leading to the ceremony were smooth, clear and sensitive to the circumstances. Our final viewing was quiet and peaceful. Although initially I was interested in the online facility of the funeralzone website, I regard the T&C's far too biased for content and intellectual use in their favour, thereby giving up our rights of control. I did not use the online service. I don't have issue with appropriate online advertising, only the intellectual property rights. Regrettable under the circumstances.

    Debbie Staff replied
    Dear Mr Scott, Thank you for taking the time to complete a 5 star review. I will ensure your comments are passed onto Alan, Sarah and the team at the Boston Office. I am also sorry to hear about your disappointment with the online service but I will ensure these comments are also passed onto Funeralzone who deal with this. Kind Regards Debbie Staff (Branch Manager)
  • 5 Fay Baillie 8th Sep 2018

    Alan and his team provide a warm and compassionate service helping the bereaved feel comfortable and in safe hands. They were patient and kind and took time to explain things. From the initial contact to plan the funeral right through to the completion on the day of funeral when they dropped us off at the wake everything was done with care and attention to our wishes and very professionally. I cannot thank them enough for making what was a very difficult occasion into wonderful memory of the celebration of my husband's life.

    Debbie Staff replied
    Dear Mrs Baillie Thank you for taking the time to leave a 5 star review. It is lovely to hear that Alan and his team were very supportive during this difficult time. I will ensure your comments are passed onto them. Kind Regards Debbie Staff (Branch Manager)
