    Following the death of my mother I cannot thank the staff at Windy Nook, Gateshead enough. Which had been one of the most difficult times I have experienced everyone there has gone above & beyond to guide myself and my sister through the process. We would like to especially mention Claire our funeral director, she explained things fully, was very empathetic and made our mothers funeral service dignified and the way she and us wanted, thank you all for everything you have done for our family.

  • 5 Robert Coulson 11th May 2022

    Didn’t hesitate to use COOP Gateshead as used them for my dad’s funeral 2 years previous. As expected , fantastic , kind service and warm personalities provided by the whole team. Helpful advice and assistance along the way together with giving us time to be on our own in between planning and funeral day. Our lead director was Nichola with other names of the staff being Lindsay , Leigh , Jan and all the staff really, excelling themselves. You never want to tell people who to use for funerals but would always recommend COOP Gateshead if asked by anyone .
