Nikki who organised dads funeral was very helpful and considerate. She made sure we had the exact music we’d asked for and that everything else was as we wanted it. We felt we were looked after before during and after service. 

Stephen Forsyth 5th Dec 2022

We were supported by Nikki and From first meeting to organise the cremation to the service on the day. Every thing was exceptional. Nikki attention to detail, guidance and expertise made this very sad time and upsetting task more manageable. She was empathetic and understanding. She Was always there in person or on the phone when we needed her. On the day every thing was perfect, first class. The whole team were polite and courteous and immaculate in their attire. Gail the celebrants speech was on point! And truly reflected my brothers life.  Words cannot express the whole family’s gratitude for all the support Co-op Blaydon Funeral Services gave us at this difficult time. True professionals and experts in what they do. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

    We found the service we received in planning Mothers direct funeral was absolutely wonderful. From the moment we walked through the door we were treated with respect, compassion & professionalism . Sandra in particular was so pleasant & helpful , she kept us informed of proceedings  which was excellent. We would have no hesitation in recommending Blaydon co-op funeral care for their services.

    Co- op funeralcare in Blaydon took really good care of our family when my mum passed. They were kind, caring and extremely helpful, we honestly couldn’t have had a better experience in such sad circumstances. The service was perfect and exactly what my mum wanted. I really can’t praise the staff enough.

    The professional way in which Sandra and her team conduct a funeral is exemplary, not only do they go out of their way to make the process run smoothly and tailor the needs of you and your loved ones they are caring and understanding from the beginning to the end of the funeral. Sandra and her team should be amazingly proud of their service as I know my family and I felt completely at ease throughout both my mum and now my dads funeral they helped us give them both the send of they deserved 
    Thank you 
    Deborah and family

  • 4 Sylvia Ann Forsyth 3rd May 2022

    Overall a good service but I'd like to point out that we found the 2 Funeralcare plaques either side of Mum's coffin in the hearse very inappropriate.

    Lovely compassionate staff, nothing was too much bother for them.
    Felt confident leaving loved one in their care.
    Thank you for helping make a difficult time easier.
