The service I recieved from David Simm and Linda and all the staff from chester road co op was absolutely fantastic. My late husband would have been so proud the way they looked after him and the way his service was arranged and handled. Thank you so much from me and my son Aaron

Geoffrey Haydon 24th May 2021

The Service we received from Alison, Lynda, Marie and colleagues was excellent. Their attitude from the very first was that they wanted to help and provide us with the kind of funeral we wished for. And even though many changes were made after the original plan was set up. They accommodated our requests with friendliness and professionalism. The humanist they recommended was excellent and the service at Sunderland Crematorium was wonderful. Thank you all so much.

  • 5 Paul Dean 16th May 2021

    Everything was very well planned and ran smoothly taking away any stress of the day. The suggested Celebrant Dale Cox conducted a perfect service which was not rushed and she emphasised all points we had asked her to highlight. Simon was always available to discuss a couple of alterations that inevitably came up. The office staff at Chester Road from walking through the door for the first time to the end were sympathetic and friendly. Special mention for Lynda. So thank you one and all for making this very difficult day pass so smoothly and worry free. Paul K Dean.

    I would recommend anyone to use Co-operative Funeralcare. They go above and beyond to ensure that your loved one is cared for, that you and your family are OK and that you get the service that you require. We have them to look after both my Mam and Dad in the last two years and I've been really happy with them.

    The hearse turned up a bit late, having tried to get down the street where there is no street. We were leaving from down the road from the funeral shop! We were then late at the crem, due to road works, tho they could easily have been avoided if the driver knew his way around. I didn't then know whether people around the country and around the world would miss out on the latter part of the service. When we went into the crem, the funeral director did not invite family to join us, so friends, who were supposed to wait, went in first and family almost didn't get in. We went to pick up Sue's ashes and they were not in a scatter box. I asked you to ring to let me know when they were available, but had to ring myself. The music was brilliant. The service over-ran, but there was no-one following us in, tho I got nervous as I didn't know that. The curtains did not close, tho I don't remember having been asked about that.

  • 5 Linda McVay 21st Apr 2021

    At a time of sadness when you’re not at your best Alison guided me through from the first time we met until after the funeral. She was very professional, supportive, helpful and approachable. As were  Marie & Linda in the Chester Road branch & the staff at Washington.  A big thank you to all for giving my Mam the respect she deserved on her final journey. I came to you on a recommendation & have no hesitation in recommending you for others. Very well done. 

  • 5 Patricia Elliott 19th Apr 2021

    We could not fault the service we received from the Co-op, it was faultless. Alison & her team really looked after us, they kept in touch with us every step of the way. By doing this it made the whole experience easier. We cannot thank them all enough.

  • 5 Onelia Boardman 16th Apr 2021

    Alison helped organise my dad’s funeral, which also involved his body being repatriated back to his home town in Italy. I can only sing Alison’s praises. From our initial meeting, she handled the arrangements with a great deal of empathy, calmness and kindness. She carefully guided us through the various decisions that had to be made, and continually kept us updated at all times. She also responded to certain requests when she wasn’t meant to be working. Prior to the funeral, Alison very clearly outlined the day and what to expect. She took away the burden and worry for such a sad occasion, and we felt we were in ‘safe hands’ at all times. From start to finish, the funeral was handled by Alison and her team in a professional and efficient manner. It was a truly first class outstanding service!!  She delivered on all aspects of the funeral arrangements and exceeded our expectations. I will recommend Alison and the Co-op’s funeral service to anyone who requires such services. THANK YOU!!

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you arrange a funeral?

You can arrange a funeral by choosing a funeral director who will help you organise all of the details. They can help you decide whether to have a cremation or burial and what type of service to choose, as well as additional options, such as music and flowers. You can find out what happens at a funeral and compare funeral directors on Funeral Guide.

What are disbursements?

Disbursements are additional costs for a funeral service that are paid to third-parties, such as florists, celebrants and burial fees. The funeral director will usually charge you for them and then pay the suppliers themselves.

How can I get help with funeral costs?

If the cost of a funeral is not covered by a prepaid funeral plan, or the estate of the person who has died, you may be able to get financial help from the government’s Bereavement Support Payment or from War Disablement Pensions, charitable funds or budgeting loans.
