Very good the lady who delt with me was second to none she couldn’t have been any kinder or more empathetic she is an asset to you company so thank you so much for everything 

Pamela Etherington 10th May 2022

Our mother had originally organised her funeral 10 years ago with the Co-op and when she died in April our first contact with the Byker branch was really so positive.  We were treated with such kindness, compassion and empathy from everyone at the branch at all times. Due to the excellent service we received they made an extremely sad occasion into a joyful and happy one with an amazing celebration of her life.  Special thanks to Kevin Phillips for his brilliant organisational skills with the date, time and wake arranged within a few hours and who ensured everything ran smoothly prior to and on the day. Also after listening to our wishes he arranged for the wonderful celebrant Sarah to conduct the service.   Also thanks to Ann for her total compassion on our initial contact just hours after Mam had died and Olivia for helping produce a beautiful order of service.

    From the opening phone call with Ian to the final day. I was made to feel as though I was the Coop’s only client. Not only did everything run so smoothly but it was the care and empathy I received from everyone involved; particularly from Anne at the Byker office.  Thank you all so much for making a heart-breaking time a little easier.

  • 5 Elaine Orrick 30th Nov 2021

    The humanist provided was excellent. So good that my friend recommended her to her father who is elderly and not in good health. He said that she would be fine but to tell her he hasn't got a date yet. The coffin and flowers looked lovely.
