    Under the extenuating circumstances and during these difficult times the service provided was exemplary.

Although this wasn't the funeral Dad had planned they did their best to accommodate his wishes as far as the guidelines would allow. Thank you for your support and service.

  • 5 Claire Taylor 2nd Feb 2020

    Unfortunately, I have had to use the services of Emma & her team for the second time within 5 months. But, once again they have proved themselves to be exceptional in every way. Emma & everyone at Coppings are just so caring, understanding and professional in every aspect of arranging a funeral. I really cannot  thank & recommend them enough

  • 5 Colin Matthews 31st Jan 2020

    The service provided by Coppings was excellent from the sad moment of that first call to collect the body of my dear wife from home, the organising of the funeral, Chapel of Rest access, the services of their chosen Civil Celebrant and the compassionate way in which they treated both myself and my extended family were really appreciated. Once again I must thank them for the compassion and patience and guidance that they provided throughout this sad occasion.

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.
