We were looked after with sympathy, professionalism and understanding at all times. My father’s body was looked after beautifully which meant a great deal. All matters were explained and carried out with patience and respect. Thankyou very much.

This is a hard review to do. I dealt with the Taunton team and on the whole they were very good - responsive to my requirements and showed great care and empathy. But part of the process required my Mum being looked after in the Totnes Co-op location before she was moved to Taunton and that part was not handled well. She was there for almost 3 weeks and the Co-op said the GP was to blame for this whereas the GP blamed the Co-op. I really did not know what to believe but I would have expected the Co-op to have taken more ownership in sorting this. At the end of the day my Mum was in limbo and I was not able to visit her during that time which caused me distress. Overall this soured the experience.

    Coop Funeral Care were so very kind and thoughtful in the planning of my Mum's funeral. They didn't push to sell the most expensive. They gave my Mum a lovely, dignified, respectful funeral and could not have been kinder to me. I am really grateful to them.

  • 5 Robert Ball 29th Mar 2022

    We cannot thank all at Co-op funeralcare enough for their help, kindness & compassion at such a heartbreaking time for us. Sadly for our family this is the third time in just a couple of years we have needed them and we recommend them very highly. 

  • 5 Karen Mardell 28th Mar 2022

    The funeral support was excellent from start to finish. Geoff and his team ensured all aspects of mum's funeral was dealt with with compassion and kindness. Thank you

  • 3 Sharon Robinson 21st Mar 2022

    Prepaid funeral plan. All worked pretty well.  No problems. All very professional and respectful. Slightly disappointed with the celebrant pulling us off track from what we wanted. Our eulogy was cut right back to allow her to add extra readings that we didn’t necessarily want. She kind of made it her own. I felt the need to apologise to some of the mourners afterwards, as some of it wasn’t right. I’m not sure who was in control of the music either, it totally blasted everyone out of their seats.   Inappropriately  loud for the occasion.

  • 1 Henry Robertson 14th Feb 2022

    At a time when accurate information is paramount the whole co op experience has been absolutely shocking!  I think my mother has been cremated but to be honest, I don’t honestly know, that’s how *** terrible it’s all been handled! 

  • 5 Steven Dillon 7th Feb 2022

    We would like to thank Taunton funeral care from our hearts in particular Sue who went up and beyond helpful. Thanks to Sue the whole process of the passing and cremation of mum was so much more easier to cope with. With us living in France the whole thing was so daunting but the care and compassion Sue showed was undeniable above excellent  Once again thank you              The Dillon family

  • 5 Richard Gymer 31st Jan 2022

    Jeff and the team were excellent. 

  • 4 Louise Jones 25th Jan 2022

    Geoff was very helpful and organised throughout and the funeral went smoothly. He did say there would be a follow up call the week after the funeral but I never heard anything. I also haven’t heard back about my dad necklace that was being made. Claiming the remainder of the balance back from one family has also been difficult (mostly the communication).  That’s the only reason why I haven’t given 5 stars. 

  • 5 Sandra Donohoe 25th Jan 2022

    Geoff and his team gave us an excellent service and the support we needed at a difficult time. Very professional, strongly recommended. Thanks -Sandra and family.

  • 5 Pauline Hurd 31st Dec 2021

    My Dad's funeral was arranged with great care and attention as was my Mums in February. Nothing was too much trouble even making sure I was isolated as much as possible due to ongoing treatment. My friends and relations also commented on the beautiful service that was just right for my Dad. Thank you to Geoff and his wonderful staff.
