We would thoroughly recommend the Taunton Priorswood team for being kind, compassionate and so very professional. Everything was more than satisfactory, they are excellent at what they do.  Our mother was treated with dignity and respect and with huge thanks to them she had a good send off, what more could you ask for.

From start to finish we cannot thank the Co-op funeral care staff for their professionalism and support that made a very sad time easier to bear. Can't thank enough.

Kathryn Phillips 12th Feb 2024

When we first met with Charles he told us he had not worked  as a funeral director for sometime and as a consequence was a bit out of touch. It took quite sometime to go through all the arrangements as he had to check things with a colleague. As a result we were initially a bit concerned about the funeral itself. However in the weeks prior to the service Charles kept us informed and replied promptly to emails regarding the order of service and other arrangements. On the day of the service Charles was fantastic, very supportive and everything went like clockwork and just as he had outlined to us. We are very grateful for his help in arranging such a personal and fitting celebration of Mum’s life.

    The Co-op Funeral Services were excellent. Our funeral director Nic struck an excellent balance between sympathy, understanding and a little humour. I cannot recommend them too highly.

    The Co-op Taunton did a very good job for my dad’s funeral so mum wanted us to use the same when it came time to organise hers.  
    I didn’t feel confident throughout my initial meeting to discuss all the requirements for mum’s funeral and indeed never heard again from the lady who conducted it. I had several more calls with other people at the Taunton Co-op in the lead up to the funeral as we knew exactly what mum wanted and it was vital it was right on the day.
    As I walked into the crem I saw immediately the wrong coffin.  A wooden one.  Exactly what mum would have hated and had specified she didn’t want.  
    I had very specifically and carefully chosen from the booklet I was given a Somerset Wetlands plain wicker coffin.  
    I have had an apology of sorts and some recompense but I would give anything for it to have been the right coffin in the first place. 
    I will never be able to put into words the awfulness of it. 
    I have since been bombarded asking for reviews, including one sent two days after the service from the original lady who went completely silent after my initial meeting with her. 
    Please now let me move on in trying to deal with the loss of my lovely mum.

  • 5 Amanda Trimby 24th Jul 2023

    Absolutely brilliant,amazing people. Made the whole process of Dad's funeral so much easier at such a sad time.

  • 5 Linda Drury 17th Jul 2023

    Very special thanks must go to Dawn for everything she did to make it so perfect.
    I have had so many comments from my friends who were very impressed.
    A very big Thank you .
