Julie took us through the whole process, explaining in detail what was required and our options. Nothing was too much trouble. Extremely patient. On the day of the cremation the funeral director and her staff were immaculately turned out and extremely professional in everything they did. The after-service care has been up to that same standard. Excellent!

  • 5 Susan Taylor 4th May 2020

    Arranging a funeral is never pleasant and even more so during this pandemic. Stuart was professional and compassionate throughout, never rushing us or undermining our grief. The whole process ran seamlessly, for which we were very grateful. The ladies we dealt with at the Tritton Road site were very personable. Although  we hope not to require their services again in the near future I would recommend the Lincolnshire Co-op Funeral Service to others.

    Jess Emmerson replied
    Dear Mrs Taylor, Thank you for taking the time to leave our Tritton Road team a 5 star review.

    Many, many issues and a complaint letter sent to head office! Re:  Barbara Batkin Funeral  - Lincoln (Arr/Sun No: 00079559) We have a number of issues concerning standard of service provided by Lincolnshire Co-op Funeral Services for the funeral of Barbara Batkin which are set out below. I recognise that this funeral contract, executed on 3/3/20 for a funeral on March 30th, was being conducted against a backdrop of changing COVID 19 advisories and legislation.  The coroner’s office also requested a post mortem to be conducted. In this respect under the contract your duty of care to your clients includes ”Providing you with service communications so that you receive a full and functional service. Updates and notifications about changes to our services.” Most of our issues concern a general lack of or timely communication by our assigned funeral Director, Stuart Bell, from the Tritton Road office in Lincoln. Following signing of our contract with you the following service to be provided or organized were cancelled or not delivered as required. Church memorial service was cancelled  • We only got to hear about this through an email we sent at 12.15. According to Stuart Bell his offices knew at 08.00. Why were we not informed directly? • This means that the estimated fee of £320 should be adjusted as only graveside prayers were said and no church used. • Service sheet estimated cost should be cancelled as not provided and advised not to go ahead Communication • Little advice given by Stuart Bell during the period of making the funeral arrangements, we continually had to chase him for information. • Due to the coroner requesting a post mortem we were continually calling Stuart to find out if this had been done and when Barbara would be returned. • Once Barbara had been returned nobody advised us so that we could go ahead with the family notifications. We only knew she had returned at a meeting on March 19th with Stuart Bell at Tritton Rd. as he went to check. • See also Jewelry and clothing below. Notice in Paper • The notice was put into the echo without being given my final wording and not telling me that this was going ahead, such that family members actually read it in the paper prior to my own notice being sent out. Jewelry and Clothing • On Saturday 28th March we tried all day to get hold of Stuart Bell by phone, mobile and email to confirm that specific items of jewelry and clothing to be removed and replaced with others. No confirmation was received so we had to call the Duty Funeral Director on Monday and email the office. By 10 am on day of the funeral at 12am we had still heard nothing. Once again we had to chase the office for confirmation.  We had two sleepless nights over this. Embalming • Due to the time taken for the post mortem and Barbara to be returned and embalmed, I sent an email on March 23th to Stuart to advise that this, scheduled for the next day, was no longer to go ahead. Again, no confirmation that this went ahead.  The estimated cost for admitting into care needs to be changed Wake • Advised after notifications had been sent to persons to attend the funeral that we would not be given a room to hold the wake despite being told by Stuart that all receptions already booked would go ahead.  Any estimated cost for this needs to be cancelled. Limousine • Limousine was cancelled. Any estimated cost for this needs to be cancelled. Flowers • We were advised that no flowers were available, despite us obtaining bouquets from another florist two weeks after we placed the order with Coop. Stuart advised that artificial flowers would be put around coffin at no cost.  Any estimated cost for this needs to be cancelled. Pall-Bearers • Finally, two pall-bearers did not turn up for the burial and two council workers have to stand in to bury mum.  Photograph provided of this in original letter. • Coffin should have been laid at the top of the grave for the service and then lowered into the grave afterwards. This did not happen, we were not told anything prior, but Barbara was lowered straight into the grave and the service then took place afterwards. This was extremely upsetting. • We fully expect that a suitable downward adjustment to the estimated professional service fee of £1,350 be made for this and communication failures. Donations • As yet, no notification of donations made to The Grove as requested. We await details as we know that donations have been sent.
