Frequently Asked Questions

What should I do when someone dies?

When someone dies you need to get a Medical Certificate of Cause of Death from a doctor, register their death and choose a funeral director to arrange their funeral. The Registration Office will give you a Death Certificate and Certificate for Burial or Cremation (GR021 in Northern Ireland).

How much does a funeral cost?

The cost of a funeral depends on where you are in the UK and whether you choose a burial or a cremation. Natural burial is becoming increasingly popular, but can often be more expensive than burial in a traditional cemetery. The cost of coffins, flowers, catering and transport also varies a lot. There is also an almost unlimited list of options for personalising a service, such as professional funeral singers or a motorcycle-hearse. You can compare the price of funeral directors on Funeral Guide.

Would not hesitate to recommend. The staff were caring and helpful and the whole thing was managed smoothly with no fuss. A difficult time made so much less distressing with their support.

Everyone at Co-op Funeralcare, Washington was brilliant...from the moment we called them to ask for their help we were met with professionalism and sensitivity. A difficult time was made easier by the excellent service we were given. Very grateful to everyone at Co-op Funeralcare, Washington for their work and support. Would recommend them to anyone needing their services.

Very supportive and kind. Funeral went without a hitch and I felt they took away a lot of the stress and anxiety of organising. Would highly recommend.

Couldn't have asked for anyone to be more caring and supportive than the staff at Houghton Co Op Funeral Care - especially Funeral Director, Simon. He was genuinely interested in us as a family and explained everything that was to happen and options open to us. A distressing time was made as stress-free and light-hearted as is possible in these circumstances. Thank you so much.

We couldn't have asked for a better service from the CO-OP funeral care at Washington who looked after my Mam’ s care. Their help take a great weight from our shoulders at an awful time. Ann, Sonia and Courtney were fantastic and sorted any problems we had. They were able to organise a late visit for my sister to see Mam as she had to travel from the south west. Nothing was too much trouble. The order of service was beautiful  and the care we received on the day of the funeral was second to none. Thank you everyone.
