This was a very hard thing to try and sort for some one who was so special and dearly loved. Although we knew some parts of a service that we would like , we just needed some guidance to make it perfect. Emma helped us to do this . My family would like to thank  you all  for a perfect service  for our special lady .

    At such a sad time of my mums passing, the ladies at Coppings were so helpful, kind and very respectful of my wishes.

  • 5 Harry Baker 14th Apr 2021

    From the very outset I found that the person who dealt with me (Director Emma Stork) was very professional, very efficient, kind and compassionate. Other members of staff were equally professional and helpful.

  • 5 Jason Best 15th Mar 2021

    Emma and the team were amazing and so welcoming, considerate and professional in providing everything we needed to enable the familu to say goodbye to Colin in the best way. Thank you so much!

  • 4 Duncan Watson 8th Mar 2021

    Well organised, respectful and warm, taking the family into first thoughts at all times making sure we had a good understanding of the procedures.

  • 5 Christopher Murphy 6th Mar 2021

    Throughout their involvement with us, they have been just excellent in everything. They give you time when needed, or do things quickly if needed. Nothing ever seems to be a bother to them which is just what we needed in these difficult times. All the staff we came across were so friendly, understanding, kind and caring, and always acted so very professionally. We were totally confident that they would provide us with this standard of service, as we have used them before. We really cannot praise or thank them enough.

  • 5 Helen Howe 4th Mar 2021

    My sister and I cannot rate Copping enough. They provided an excellent and efficient service and took a great load off our shoulders. Nothing was too much trouble.

  • 5 Adrian King 3rd Mar 2021

    Very pleased with high standard and attention to detail which we received.

  • 5 Helen Spruce 28th Feb 2021

    In all dealings with Copping - right from the first phone call all the way through to the Cremation Service and Ashes arrangements - their service, advice and support to our family at this hard time has exceeded excellence. They seemingly effortlessly (but working hard in the background I'm sure) helped us understand practicalities outside of their remit; they dealt with all official formalities and spiritual parties involved; they dealt with us accordingly in our different stages of grief; nothing was too much trouble (even beyond-the-usual requests); and their treatment of my Dad - from when they first had him to 'stay', to when they took him on his last dignified final journey in their beautiful Classic Jaguar Daimler, Linda walking him from our drive, pausing at his old haunts, driving slowly to the Crematorium. They ensured his service flowed beautifully, from following his coffin in, the music played, the little personal touches, to leaving the crematorium - in exactly the way my Dad would have wanted and in a way that his family and friends needed. Thank you Emma and Linda and 'the boys in black'- you are all a credit to your profession. Helen (Daughter)

  • 4 Chris Smith 26th Feb 2021

    Very helpful in spite of family problems being created between both parties of the family. The funeral director managed to keep the piece and handle everybody in a professional manner and of course having to cope with Covid restrictions at the church and Waveny Crematorium with snow coming down on the day. I would use them again.

  • 5 Zoe Ladbrooke 20th Feb 2021

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.
