About Us

As the region’s leading funeral director, Central England Co-operative Funeral Service has been providing a caring and sympathetic service to Birmingham families for over 100 years.

Based on Fox Hollies Road our Funeralcare Acocks Green funeral home has dedicated rooms of remembrance and is ideally located to serve the families of Acocks Green.

Our colleagues live locally and know about the culture and customs of the communities they serve, and they have excellent relationships with local clergy and officiates of all faiths, doctors, solicitors, local authorities and bereavement groups – people we can call on to help you through your time of loss.

When someone dies it can be difficult to know who to turn to for advice, especially when you have never had to organise a funeral before. When people are grieving it is the aim of our funeral directors and administrators to relieve as much of the pressure as possible. There are many aspects of funeral arrangements – sometimes requiring difficult choices – and our dedicated colleagues hope to make the process easier by offering expert advice in a caring, respectful manner.

We are members of the National Association of Funeral Directors, following their strict code of practice, and our funeral bond scheme is monitored by the Funeral Planning Authority.
When you choose Central England Co-operative Funeral Services you can be assured that every aspect of the funeral arrangements will be carried out with the utmost dignity and in accordance with your wishes.

  • 5 Patrick Cullen (junior) 6th Apr 2018

    It was of course a dreadful time for our family but Tina and the team helped us to get things organised and delivered a lovely smoothly run event. Only negative was my mother being moved in order for a doctor to certify death without us being advised. That was unintentionally upsetting. However this was more than outweighed by the courtesy and service we received. 

  • 5 Angela Sankey 28th Mar 2018

    The family of Bridget would like to thank Lisa and the team for all their help, support and advice during the sad occasion of our Mothers death. Nothing was too much trouble and the service we received from strat to finish was very professional.

  • 5 Alan Prior 9th Mar 2018

    Everybody did a top job and were very friendly and helpful. This made concentrating on the FUN-eral so much easier. It was a brilliant day and everyone had a lot of fun, which is exactly the way Val planned it to go. Grateful thanks to Lisa, Tina, Peter & Shirley.

    Jennie Martin replied
    Thank you for such wonderful comments - I'm so pleased to hear we could give Val the funeral she wanted. Your kind words will be passed back to the team. I'm so pleased we could support you at this time. Best wishes, Jennie at Central England Co-operative

    Our Brother's Funeral was conducted with dignity, compassion and support. At a time when a family member dies unexpectedly, at a relatively young age, the state of shock can be devastating, leaving people unable to cope with organising such a sad event. The Co-op Funeral Team guided and gently directed the family at this sad time of departure. 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.
