Louth Co-operative Funeral Service did such a super job on my father's funeral two years ago, that naturally I went to them again when my mother died this year. And as I said during mum's eulogy, it's practically criminal, the hoops the government and various official organizations make you jump through when a loved one dies, but when you hire Louth Co-op, the one thing you don't have to worry about at all is the funeral. They handle absolutely everything, and completely take the stress off you. They think of everything before you even ask. Just leave it to them, you are in the best of hands. On top of the difficulties that Coronavirus prevention added this year to their work, I had a particular request for a change in the chapel layout, but they accommodated it beautifully, and mum's casket and flowers looked lovely, as did the special order of service booklet that they printed perfectly for me. A highly professional and caring service, I couldn't imagine it going better. Thanks again to John and Cathy, and to the Reverend Mansfield who elegantly officiated. I also appreciated how, whether by accident or design, the colour of his vestments matched mum's flowers. It was all perfect.

On the hole most things weren’t to bad , they didn’t tell me the date of my dads funeral , I just got a call from the vicar informing me when it was ( how embarrassing for him and myself ) and on the day of dads funeral they had to send a runner back to there office as dads Picture that was to sit on top of his coffin , had been forgotten, and we were left out side the church waiting with my dad ( not happy about that at all ) will not be useing them again

  • 5 Samuel O'Donnell 17th Aug 2020

    As unpleasant as it can be having to arrange a funeral for a loved one. The Louth coop funeral directors were very helpful all the way. I'd never think of having to recommend this kind of thing at a relatively young age. Although they were brilliant in handling everything. I would especially like to thank Cathy for her support and understanding. Great service all the way through the motions

    Michael Bryant replied
    Dear Samuel, thank you for taking the time to leave our Louth branch a five star review. I am pleased that Cathy was able to support you all as a family through this extremely difficult time. I will pass on your kind words. Kind Regards Michael Bryant Funeral Services Manager

  • 5 Ann McGrath 25th Jul 2020

    Gemma Watson was caring, compassionate and very professional. I felt as if she knew my husband, even though she didn't, and wanted to do her best for him and me. Did not feel rushed and felt at ease to ask her any questions. Gemma put me in touch with Michael Green, Celebrant, who also had the attributes of Gemma. He immediately put me at ease and and I had great comfort by discussing my husband. Excellent service.

    Michael Bryant replied

    Excellent, my experience, although obviously for myself was sad, i couldn’t have wished for a more caring, helpful, friendly and professional team.  Choice of different services were explained fully, and decisions were totally my choice.  Staff were always at the end of the phone to help if needed. Price wise the package I chose fulfilled all requirements and was competitive, making this difficult time less stressful  Thank you all

  • 5 Vaughan Davey 23rd May 2020

    This was a difficult time because Mum died just before the Covid-19 crisis. Due to the waiting list for the Crematorium the lockdown rules kept changing but the Co-Op remained professional throughout, despite having to deal with a situation that had never occurred before. I could not have asked for better service and would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone unfortunate enough to need their services.

    Michael Bryant replied
    Dear Mr Davey, thank you for your five star review. We are all having to adapt through these difficult circumstances and changing situations which we face. I am pleased all our staff were able to help you through this difficult time and will forward onto my colleagues, your thanks. Kindest regards Michael Bryant Funeral Services Manager

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.
