Very accommodating as we were late. Very helpful and professional. Thank you for your patience. It made the funeral arrangements easier for us. We have used coop funeral directors before and would do again, when needed. Many many thanks to the lovely staff. X x x

Katherine Smithers 23rd Jan 2024

My husband asked for a Direct Cremation which I arranged and paid for online. The team at Guildford then contacted me promptly the following day and discussed the process with me thoroughly and kept me notified throughout the procedure. When I visited their premises to sign the necessary paperwork, they were extremely friendly and immediately put me at my ease without being overly obsequious. Would highly recommend.

    I visited several funeral directors, as soon as i walked in, there was an instant rapport with Christina and Paul. I took my son along the next day and he felt the same, we appointed them there and then. I couldn't have wished for anyone better to take care of my daughter. Nothing was too much trouble and they went above and beyond along with Stuart, to make sure everything was spot on to my wishes and liking leading up to the funeral. On the day everything went smoothly and was 1st class. The attention to detail was superb and myself and family had nothing to worry about. Courtesy calls just to make sure we were ok during the whole process. Would highly recommend.

    An excellent service provided by Paul and his colleagues, everything  provided with ultimate respect shown to the deceased, taking much of the stress and worry from the family at a very time.

  • 5 Mandy Bristow 16th Jan 2024

    Professional whilst remaining friendly and caring. The continuity of having Paul guiding me from the initial meeting at the office through to the ceremony was very comforting.

  • 5 Rebecca Hill 4th Jan 2024

    Funeralcare in Guildford could not have been more helpful.
    They guided us through the process, and advised us when we were unsure.
    We wanted a very simple service, and needed to have the service quite quicky. Both were achieved with care and sensitivity.
    We would definitely recommend this funeral service. Thank you

  • 5 Susan Goundry 23rd Oct 2023

    From start to finish everything went smoothly. Stuart and Christina were very professional but also extremely caring and easy to talk to whilst discussing the funeral arrangements for our dad. 
    We were put in touch with a lovely celebrant, Trish, who was also excellent in dealing with our wishes for the funeral.
    Nothing was too much trouble and I would wholeheartedly recommend Co op funeral care Guildford

    The care and support that we got from Guildford Funeralcare was exceptional. Christina who was my main contact was amazing. She was very warm, kind and compassionate  combined with great efficiency. She responded immediately to any of our questions and helped me through the steps needed. She was perfect.
    The whole company also had a wonderful approach that made us feel like they were really taking care of my mum  and of course,, us.

    All went well

  • 5 David Stewart 9th Oct 2023

    From my first contact with them until after the funeral everyone I dealt with could not have been more helpful and sympathetic. The Celebrant was excellent and as a consequence the Celebration of my wife’s Life was a happy event attended by close to 100 people. It was a wonderful send off for her.
