Very professional, caring staff who made a difficult day easy.

Mary Roberts 14th Aug 2020

Everyone was really respectful and helpful, understanding how emotionally distressed we were to be arranging the funeral of my husband and dad to James. Nothing was too much for them or any question too silly. Thank you Mary & James

We choice Gainsborough co-op for mums funeral, as they did our dads just over two years ago. In both cases they listened to what we wanted, but obviously in the current circumstances we couldn’t give mum the send off that we gave dad. Katie was brilliant and was always at the end of the phone to answer any questions. I would recommend them to anyone

    Once we’d sorted out the Co-op versus Lincolnshire Co-op debacle so that my dad could go where he’d wanted to go the team at North Street were fantastic. Carla, especially, deserves a special mention. She is just the perfect person to be a Funeral Director. Her empathy and compassion helped to lighten the load during difficult days and she looked after dad very well. The whole team were marvellous, and I can’t praise them enough. Thank you all!

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.
