Fabulous team. Katie in the office was so helpful and caring. Katie was easily contactable at all times and kept us informed regularly.  Her design of the order of service was outstanding.  Laura the funeral director on the day of the funeral was so professional and efficient she ensured that we could just concentrate on the funeral service as she quietly managed the arrangements and steered us through.  We felt we were dealing with friends and are truly grateful to them.

What a great and simple process, unfortunately this was my first time organising a funeral and I was dreading the experience as I expect anyone would. The team made it a really easy and simple process with lots of help provided throughout. I would highly recommend.

    Overall the service was satisfactory, however there were a number of small things that were not right or rather clumsily executed.

    Katie Russel at Chelmsford Moulsham Street was wonderful from the day I called her to start the process, to after the funeral. So much so we even invited her to the funeral (and bless her for attending). She was so loving, kind and genuine to not just me, but my family and also my sister who tragically died. She made me feel like i was speaking to a family member that wanted to support me as opposed to a business - and I cannot thank her enough for how authentic and supportive she was at my most difficult time. She deserves to be recognized and valued as an amazing person who represents the Co-op - and anyone who deals with her in the future are in great hands and the Co-op are very lucky to have her working as an employee - without her I am unsure if I would have said the same about the whole process. Thank you again Katie <3

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.
