  • 5 Trevor Cox 8th Mar 2022

    Sadly, my brother passed away recently. He is the first of our family to pass away. Not knowing where to turn I trawled the internet searching for help. I found an advert for the Coop funeral services and, being from Washington, decided to ring the Concord branch. They were brilliant in every way. From my first timid contact and still in shock, they were very understanding and professional and helped me through the whole process. The funeral went without a hitch and the Celebrant, Mark, captured the spirit of my brother with his speech. Everything was taken care of, I couldn't ask for any more from the staff. I thank them all for their help, support and for making my brothers send off perfect. Thank you all.
