  • 5 Erika Summers 7th Jun 2021

    Simon arranged our father’s funeral so didn’t hesitate to contact him when mum passed away and again he guided us and made the process as simple as possible for us to deal with. He also discussed how the coop legal team could potentially support us with probate and they are. On the day the care and courteous way Simon and the team help us through the funeral was outstanding.  My specific thanks go to Patsy Hurst who was brilliant and I will always be grateful for her support throughout.

    Simon Devlin gave a wonderful service from the first time he contacted us. He get us updated,  gave advice and guidance when needed and followed up after the funeral to make sure everything had been as we had discussed. He and his team took some of the stress out of a very difficult time.

    The funeral director was amazing, she knew just what we needed, don't know how but when I was feeling low she rang (this happened twice) and made sure I was ok. On the day the lady driver of our car was so good, what a credit to the COOP she is. A truly professional service I would recommend 100%

    The service offered by the whole team at the Windy Nook branch has been excellent. Each of your representatives has shown exceptional care and compassion when entrusted with my mum and my father, sister and I have been comforted by this fact.

  • 5 Shelagh Todd 19th Apr 2021

    The Coop funeral service provided us with an excellent service. They care and guidance made what could have been a difficult process a lot easier. Courtney in particular went above and beyond with her kindness, patience and professional. My Dad would have been proud of the care they took of him and provided. I cannot recommend the service highly enough.

  • 5 Anne Rundle 17th Apr 2021

    We recently had the funeral of my much loved Mum. I received outstanding service from Coop Funeral Director Courtney French. She was extremely supportive, very considerate and very kind. Courtney constantly kept me updated with all of the arrangements. She made a very difficult, stressful and sad situation for me so much easier. Courtney and the rest of the staff were very professional and very respectful throughout the planning and the day of the funeral. We have family in Australia and Courtney went out of her way to set up a ‘WhatsApp’ group with my relatives and was able to ‘live stream’ the funeral service.  I was able to meet up with Courtney at the office when I collected my Mum’s ashes. Again her support continued. She knew I planned to take half the ashes to Australia. She completed the necessary paperwork and also provided a supporting letter for border control in Australia. Truly outstanding service. Thankyou again. 

  • 5 Catherine Rudd 13th Apr 2021

    I was assigned Simon as my contact with Co-op funeral services,  he listened carefully to the family wishes and gave  advice based on those wishes, whilst still allowing our family to make the final choices. He showed respect and compassion and remained in regular contact advising us of the funeral arrangements and timings and guided us through the day itself.  He followed up with a telephone call the day after the funeral to advise regarding collecting my husband’s ashes. Simon made  a very emotional and stressful time for our family easier knowing that the funeral arrangements were in professional hands.  

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you arrange a funeral?

You can arrange a funeral by choosing a funeral director who will help you organise all of the details. They can help you decide whether to have a cremation or burial and what type of service to choose, as well as additional options, such as music and flowers.

What are disbursements?

Disbursements are additional costs for a funeral service that are paid to third-parties, such as florists, celebrants and burial fees. The funeral director will usually charge you for them and then pay the suppliers themselves.

How can I get help with funeral costs?
