I cannot praise the Gary, Richard and the team enough. The care and respect they showed my late mum, my family and I at such a difficult time is great appreciated. The webcast meant family and friends overseas were able to join us for the service.

    The circumstances surrounding my father's death were very traumatic and left myself and family in a state of shock ,Gary Mcgee was our funeral director and what an amazing person he is. He went above and beyond for us and helped give my dad the best send off .we will for ever be grateful for the care and support shown from you all .

  • 5 Angela Wilson 24th Oct 2022

    Absolutely fantastic care from Gary mc gee and the staff,Gary went above and beyond to help me through an absolute nightmare getting my mum back from Turkey and when someone else had been buried in my mums grave! Gary was a rock through a very upsetting time.i can't thank him enough.

  • 5 Michael Donkin 24th Oct 2022

    The Funeral Director, Ian, the office staff, Diane and Petra, and the limo drivers were really great with us. Everything was explained, in detail, every step of the way as they held our hands through what is a difficult time. They showed empathy and sympathy throughout and removed all of the stress and strain of giving my Dad a send off that he would have been proud of. The Celebrant hit all of the right notes in a poignant, but quite upbeat, Humanist celebration of his life. Huge thanks are due to the Co-op for the way the whole process was handled and I can highly recommend their services.

  • 5 Martyn Burn 21st Oct 2022

    Excellent service from start to finish, thanks to Gary for organising and Ian for delivering on the day, and the office staff who have been courteous and respectful on every occasion.

  • 5 Jennifer Mooney 17th Oct 2022

    Having never organised a funeral before, everything was made very simple and easy and I did not feel rushed or stressed by it at all. The arrangements and the funeral itself were handled in a very professional, respectful and sympathetic manner. I could not have asked for more.

  • 5 Lisa Salter 13th Oct 2022

    Petra and Diane have both been extremely helpful and compassionate on both occasions 
    Thank you so much 

  • 5 Jacqueline Wearn 5th Oct 2022

    After using Co-op funeral care in Westerhope for my Mothers funeral 4 years ago, we had no reservations at all in asking them to organise our Fathers funeral recently. Richard was very helpful, thoughtful and professional whilst helping us to plan the funeral that I know my Dad would have been proud of. He also helped us to plan our Mums funeral and I would not hesitate to recommend him.
    Petra was also very helpful, caring and welcoming as I visited my Dad each day that he was in their care in the days leading up to his funeral. She is a naturally caring person who always takes time to listen and will help in any way she can whilst also remaining professional.
    I know that this is their job, but both Richard and Petra go above and beyond in helping to make a very upsetting and stressful time that little bit easier for the family to enable them to take time to grieve. We would also like to thank the many other staff members who looked after and cared for my Dad after his passing through to the funeral.
    Thank you all for the care shown to me and my family
