    We were very touched by the thoughtfulness, consideration and sensitivity Nicola, Petra and Natalie so naturally displayed helping us arrange our family funeral. Their manner, tone and communication was mindful and respectful, Nicola particularly, gently reassuring, fulfilling her role way beyond that of exceptional good staff training. We are moved to commend your truly compassionate team, please note our appreciation and thanks.

  • 5 Allan Minnikin 19th Jun 2023

    Hi There -Allan Minnikin here,
    The service I received from the Co-op at Westerhope was to put it mildly --
    MAGNIFICENT - This is a very professional outfit- the staff were very understanding and compassionate.
    Petra was a great help to us in every way as was Gary in this very difficult journey.
    I cannot thank Richard Charlton enough for the very compassioate and loving way he conducted Eileen's funeral, and the lead up to it also, with the various phone calls and support!
    So all I can say is thank you very much to everyone from our family, and may God bless you all for everything that you did for us!!
