West & Coe Funeral Directors

Losing someone you care about can be one of life’s most difficult experiences.  There are no easy answers and every situation is unique and people react in different ways.

As a family owned funeral directors, West & Coe believe we have an important responsibility to care for the bereaved, not just by offering support during the funeral, but afterwards as well, especially through the difficult days that may follow.

Our unique support group, HOPE, offers a combination of education and interaction in a safe & friendly environment, where your feelings and emotions will be respected.  It is not a counselling session, but together as a group, we will explore the bereavement process and work through it’s many emotions to help us cope with the adjustments to life in the future.

HOPE is a 6 week programme and free to those attending.
