    At a time of stress and sadness the Co-op helped by arranging everything.

    Kevin the Funeral Director was so understanding and answered any queries with haste, and the funeral itself was wonderful, although so obviously sad.

    Thank you

    I cannot fault the coop, funeral director and whole team for their care support and thoughtfulness throughout the whole process 

  • 5 Carole Greener 16th Jan 2023

    Everyone has been so helpful and understanding. They looked after my Mum really well and she looked lovely. The day of the funeral, although very sad was wonderful and went smoothly, without any problems. Thank you to all the staff involved, I really, really appreciated it. 

  • 5 Tony Cairns 9th Jan 2023

    We were all very happy with the care and sensitivity shown by Westerhope Co-op.

  • 5 Gillian Danskin 3rd Jan 2023

    From the initial contact until after the funeral the service provided was exceptional. Professional caring staff. Our initial contact at a very emotional time was made easier with the absolute caring nature of the young lady who attended just after the passing of my mother. From then on the attention to detail in such a caring way was second to none. Gary ensured that everything was perfect and guided us through all the processes excellently. I was so impressed with the celebrant he chose - he could not have chosen a more perfect person to perform the service. The staff in the office and chapel of rest were all so lovely and caring. All in all we could not have been more looked after at this traumatic time. I can’t thank Gary and his colleagues enough. Over and above what I would have expected.

  • 5 Annie Carden 3rd Jan 2023

  • 5 Alison Pollock 20th Dec 2022

    The service was so good, very sincere and professional. In a very emotional and stressful time they were supportive and kept me up to date with phone calls on what was happening next. 
    Thank you so much to a lovely team.

  • 5 Grace Weir 19th Dec 2022

    I would highly recommend the services of the Westerhope Co-op
    Funeralcare. The process of arranging a funeral is stressful, but I was supported by Gary and his team, to achieve a funeral that was personalised for my friend. Everyone went above and beyond my expectations. The celebrant, Simon, wrote a beautiful tribute which really captured my friend's life experiences and how he tried to overcome personal issues to live as positively as he could. Thanks to everyone for creating a beautiful funeral,and caring about a man with no relatives, but with many friends.

    Compassionate, caring service carried out to the highest standards. All members of staff are a credit to their profession.

  • 5 Alan Green 22nd Nov 2022

    We were given lots of detail along with options for flowers at the initial meeting which we appreciated. A relaxed and pleasant discussion. Things proceeded very smoothly even though we wanted the funeral service at York rather than Newcastle. The service was very professional and the Humanist was excellent as she has a very pleasant voice and took on board our comments for the script.

  • 5 Paul Harrison 22nd Nov 2022

    Well organised nothing left for me to think about, funeral director Gary was excellent and very understanding he did my mum proud.
