My contact at Galashiels was Trish. She was amazing from the first call I made to her branch. She made a very difficult time, following the sudden death of my son, as uncomplicated as possible. She called me regularly, to update me. Even a mix up with forms was handled smoothly. I am very pleased with the service I received from Trish and Co Op Funeralcare. Thank you.

Catherine Murray 12th Feb 2024

Excellent and Professional Service.

Ian Heslop 5th Feb 2024

Support and services from COOP Funeralcare in Galashiels was excellent; cannot praise the staff there enough. Marketing phone call from COOP in Manchester was not satisfactory. Caller appeared not to know that “Small estate” probate limit in Scotland was £36,000, not the £30,000 that she quoted.
