About Us

For just under 80 years, Chelmsford Star Co-operative Funeral Services has been operating in the mid-Essex area, giving expert advice to help guide bereaved families through the funeral planning process.

The Braintree branch, established in 1993, is situated near the town centre, close to a bus route and with free parking available at the front of the premises. The premises have a private area to arrange funerals and a chapel to view your loved ones in peace. You can also pay a visit to the Hall of Remembrance, where mourners can leave tributes.

Co-operative Funeral Services pride themselves on offering complete bereavement and aftercare support. Clients have access to a free-phone number for 24-hour, seven-days-a-week advice on any problem they might have. There is also a free aftercare service, through local clergy, doctors and care workers, to meet all your needs.

Chelmsford Star will take the time to help you create the ideal funeral for your loved one that truly reflects their wishes, through a choice of coffins, flowers, transport, music and readings. Thanks to nationwide connections, they are also able to meet more unusual requirements, such as a motorbike-hearse, for a unique celebration of your loved one’s life.

The team at Chelmsford Star has also earned a place as one of Good Funeral Guide’s ‘Best Funeral Directors’ and has won eight local business awards for customer service over the last 15 years.

Get in touch with Chelmsford Star Co-operative Funeral Services to find out how they can help you plan your loved one’s funeral.

    We cannot speak highly enough of Kari at CSC Funeral services. Nothing was too much trouble, this lady is so kind and so caring, her attention to detail is incredible.  She has really helped us through a very difficult time after losing our mum during the lockdown period.   On the day of mums funeral Rob and his staff were dignified, helpful and so respectful of mum and us as a family. We can’t thank all at CSC enough.

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.
