I couldn’t have asked for better service. From first contact with Richard to the day of the funeral, and beyond, everything was covered & sorted with great attention to detail, tailored perfectly to our personal requirements. My husband had died very unexpectedly & the service I got from the Coop helped to give me one less thing to worry about. Thanks to everyone involved.

Tom Eyre 27th Feb 2023

The whole process was delivered in a professional and caring way which made it easy to deal with the grief. Such a personal touch from beginning to end makes such a difference. All involved could not have made the day and experience any easier than it was what a team!

    When it's service you don't encounter regularly you really don't know what to expect...what I do know is at a time when I could barely think straight, the service provided by wallsend coop Funeralcare was perfect ..it was informative without being 'too much' it was advisory without being pushy ,it was a supportive but let me be in control .. it was caring and understanding ...it was everything I needed and more every step of the way ...for me.. the family and my late mum .... Thank you all so so much ...

  • 5 Ian Dunbar 27th Feb 2023

    The staff were courteous and helpful throughout the direct cremation process

  • 5 Aileen Shinn 27th Feb 2023

    Our family were treat with care and respect throughout by funeral director Phil and staff in the office particularly Karen. At the most difficult time of our lives this was appreciated. We were kept well informed at all times.

  • 5 Alan Stephenson 20th Feb 2023

    The Co-op Funeral Service did a first-class job of arranging my Mum's Recent cremation. Living 150 miles away from my maternal home and without a local base the Co-op did a splendid job of managing local arrangements. Cannot speak more highly of Rebecca Hebron.

  • 5 Kay Thompson 24th Jan 2023

    An empathetic efficient, respectful and friendly service taking the worry away of many of the arrangements 

  • 5 William Herd 17th Jan 2023

    I would just like to say that everything was first class, from the moment Richard first contacted me and throughout everything. It was a massive relief to have the support of the whole team, I don't know all their names but Richard, Irene, Linda, Karen, Kate and anybody else there deserves a massive thank you and I would certainly recommend their services for anybody else who has to go through the emotional experience, it was lovely to have all their support.
    Finally Richard arranged for a lovely lady called Ann Thelwell to act as Celebant and she too was a complete treasure who helped compile and read my Mum's Eulogy most beautifully on the day.
    All our love Bill, Julie and Elizabeth x

  • 4 Phil Aitken 9th Jan 2023

    Funeral director was very helpful and nothing was a problem but on the day they turned up a little late so arrived at crematorium 5 minutes late. Funeral went well but could have been problems if the traffic was slow.

    The service and support we received from everyone at CO OP Funeral Care was magnificent.

They recommended a brilliant Celebrant in Carly and Special thanks to Becca and Kate for everything.
    Would highly recommend

  • 5 Paticia Brown 20th Dec 2022

    Becka was absolutely fabulous to us as a family.
    She supported us from the beginning to the end of the funeral and we could ring her if we had any problems and as soon as she could she would respond.
    Karen at the Office was very helpful and the Drivers of the cars were very polite and helpful. Nothing was a bother to any off the Staff and we as a family are very grateful. Thank you so much for being there for us at such a very sad occasion.

    Professional very kind considerate staff from beginning to end,Wallsend Tyne and Wear branch made an impossibly sad unexpected situation actually manageable.

  • 5 Joyce Clark 28th Nov 2022

    I would have to say in all honesty that Becca the Funeral Director and all of the team from Wallsend Coop Funeralcare were amazing.
     
    I had absolutely no experience in these matters and from day one they took over and guided me through everything. Mam had chosen the coffin and her music as she had paid for her funeral in advance. So Initially at the meeting with Becca we discussed what extras we wanted.

    On the day of Mam's funeral everything went very smoothly, Becca was there every step of the way, helping us through a very sad occasion. I also had phone calls before and after the funeral, just checking that I was OK.
     
    I would like to conclude with... Thank you all very much I was very impressed, Becca and her team are not just doing a job, you can tell immediately that they are passionate about what they do. (5 Stars not enough.)

  • 5 Paul Timney 24th Nov 2022

    Impeccable service from Becky and her team throughout. Our family was handled with care and compassion at every stage and could not fault the professionalism of everyone involved.

  • 5 Gail Collins 14th Nov 2022
