The funeral of my husband Keith Bacon was everything I wanted for him. It was conducted with care and compassion. From the wonderful funeral director Rebecca,the caring girls in reception and the drivers of the courtage everything was perfect. It helped a very hard day be a little bit easier to cope with knowing that these people were there to guide me through. Thank you all.

Excellent service from Rebecca Hebron who looked after us so well from our first meeting to arrange my mam's funeral to the day of the funeral. Rebecca gave us good advice and she communicated with us regularly. The whole process went really well.

    The service provided was very dignified and carried out with extreme care. A special mention of Rebecca Hebron,the funeral director at your Forest Hall Newcastle branch.  She was so supportive, kind and caring. I was contacted by her every few days before the funeral, and again a few days after the funeral to see if we were okay and if we needed anything. I couldn’t thank her enough.

    I arranged a direct funeral with Sharon and Mary in Co-op Funeralcare, Forest Hall. From the initial walking in, to the phone call after the cremation everything was handled efficiently and with care. All the paperwork was dealt with quickly and painlessly and they told me where and how the cremation would be carried out. I received phone calls from them before and after the day of the cremation. Everything was done with respect and the appropriate balance of friendliness and formality

    Although arranging a funeral for a parent is always going to be difficult, the team at the Co-op made it as easy as possible for us and made sure that we were kept informed at all times of how the arrangements were going. Special thanks to Chris the undertaker and Gill the celebrant who dealt with everything perfectly. Mam would have been very proud of how everyone involved dealt with her and I'm sure that the butterfly that appeared after her funeral was there to say thank you for setting her free.
