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 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.

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.

I couldn’t recommend them enough, Everyone was amazing from the 1st phone call. It takes a special someone to do a job like this and Ed is that someone. Thank you for everything (even the last minute poppy dash). We could of asked for anymore. FANTASTIC.

I was happy with the level of service provided and felt that you were responsive to any enquiries that I made and that we were able to progress through any problems with a minimum of fuss. When there was a problem with regard to the availability of a celebrant due to illness Co-op secured a replacement who communicated with us and made efforts until pretty late in the day to make sure he had the relevant material he needed to do my brother proud. Overall, I feel that you were sensitve to family needs at a very difficult time for us. Thank you.

Excellent service from the start from the Beckenham Branch.I and my family really appreciated everything Nicholas and the team did to accommodate our wishes with  professionalism and compassion. Also introducing us to other services to ensure Dad’s funeral was perfect and personal to us. A special mention to Victoria whose attention to detail was outstanding together with her lovely calming manner organising funeral mass, committal and burial. It made a difficult period bearable for which we will always be thankful . With gratitude and heartfelt thanks Bridget Huxley
