    Thank you Emma and all the team. You made a very sad occasion in pandemic circumstances run smoothly and sensitively.

  • 5 Kevin Moore 30th Jun 2020

    Under the extenuating circumstances and during these difficult times the service provided was exemplary. Emma was extremely helpful and kept in contact during the difficult task of booking appointments to register Dad's demise. 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 Caroline Goodge 30th Jun 2020

  • 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.

  • 5 Julie Hayman 28th Jan 2020

    Emma dealt with all the arrangements with respect and sensitivity . Nothing was too much trouble and I and my family are very grateful for the way the funeral arrangements were carried out. Thank you.

  • 5 Andrea Wade 28th Jan 2020

    The Staff were brilliant and very caring.  Would definitely recommend them. 

  • 5 Julia Tarn 28th Jan 2020

    Emma & her team took the stresses out of arranging Mum's funeral at what has been a very difficult time.  The professionalism, kindness and attention to detail of Emma and her colleagues was wonderful & made the whole process bearable. I truly felt that Mum was in the hands of very caring and respectful people before and during her funeral which was comforting and reassuring.   I have no hesitation in recommending this family run business who have maintained the family and personal values that a family run business should be. There is no "selling" pressure and the costs are extremely competitive.  I can't recommend RB Coppings highly enough. Thank you all.  Julia

  • 5 Robert Kelf 28th Jan 2020

    Copping’s funeral where absolutely brilliant from start to finish I can’t speak highly enough of them. Emma who handle our arrangements was very professional and made you feel at ease all the way through our grief. Thank you Emma and Copping’s 

  • 5 Jon Laytham 28th Jan 2020

    From the moment of the first call, to the funeral itself the service we received was first class. Emma and all her staff were extremely professional, polite and helpful for all our needs. Thank you

  • 5 Gail Preston 17th Jan 2020

    Provided a very very good service. Made what was a very difficult time after the passing of dad that little bit easier. Couldn't speak highly enough of the service we received.

  • 5 Tony Sadd 23rd Nov 2019

    Coppings were very caring and supportive at a time when I needed it most. They were very good at helping me to put together a service that I felt my wonderful late wife deserved. There was no pressure to have add-ons that I didn't need or ask for. On the day of the funeral they were very much in the background and the celebrant that they recommended to me and who led the service was absolutely brilliant. My family, friends and neighbours all commented that it was the most uplifting service that they had ever attended. They worked extremely well with Waveney Memorial Park and Crematorium which was chosen by my late wife for her final journey. Funerals can be expensive affairs we are told but I have to say that I had absolutely no complaints in this respect either. A local firm chosen for their proximity when I was in the depths of despair but thank goodness I found myself near them at a time when I needed somebody to quietly and unobtrusively give me the help I needed.

  • 5 Martin Swindells 14th Nov 2019

    A very efficient, friendly and professional service. I would have no hesitation in recommending to others. Thank you very much.

  • 5 Chris Saunders 13th Nov 2019

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.
