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 Hawthorn Road our Funeralcare Kingstanding funeral home has dedicated rooms of remembrance and is ideally located to serve the families of Kingstanding.

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.

    Selina, the woman at the coop who looked after us was amazing. She helped us with everything we wanted for our Mum. She made things perfect for our Mum and helped us to organise a lovely send off for her. All the staff were kind and caring and very helpful, keeping us in the loop with everything. It was hard for us to process anything and Selina sorted everything for us. Everything was arranged how we wanted and we were pleased with it all.

    The service from the co-op has been second to none. Nothing was too much trouble for them and we were able to see my wife whenever we wanted. We were also pleased the funeral cars were silver instead of the normal black, we thought this was a lovely touch. We didn’t want black at the funeral. Thank you so much for giving my wife a lovely send off.

  • 5 Jean Holland 26th Dec 2017

    I'd like to thank you on behalf of my family for all of your support during such a difficult time. All of the staff at co-op funerals had such empathy from the moment we called you to start the arrangements. Once your team arrived at our home they understood it was such a shock to us and gave the extra time we needed. A special thank you to Selina Watts for going that extra mile to make the final goodbyes to my husband as best as they could be. I'd also like to mention what a great job your design team did with our order of service at a moments notice. Once again thank you for your support. Kind regards Mrs Jean Holland

    Jennie Martin replied
    Thank you Jean for your kind words. I'm so pleased we were able to help you through your difficult time. I will pass you comments to the team at Kingstanding and especially to Selina. With kindest regards, Jennie at Central England Co-operative

  • 4 Christine Beale 23rd Oct 2017

    The funeral home were really excellent my only problem was the priest, he rushed through the service and didn’t read out the poem I had given him. He also never spoke to me before or even after the service. Otherwise I would have given you 5 stars.

  • 5 Carl Marston 6th Oct 2017

    Excellent service 

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.
