Peter William Pearsall 8th May 2020

As this was a restricted funeral with only 6 mourners allowed we could not have asked for a better. The Co_op funeral team were so supportive and the service was beautiful. Thank you to Amanda and her team.

Matthew Whittemore 4th May 2020

I can’t fault the co-op in any way in regards to arranging this funeral for us.  Your staff that were there on the day explained everything that was going to happen and what we needed to do. The whole process was made a lot easier with the help of Janice. Who was not only just helpful, but a pleasure to speak to.

    Obviously at the moment times have completely changed as well of this having the difficulty of loosing a loved one, and having to comply with government measures regarding a funeral, it’s hard. But with the support of the team ( especially Heidi who was amazing) I felt that they care and want the best for the family. Thank you so much for all your help and just for listening.

    Very proffesional service, took control of the whole process and made sure our wishes were met.

  • 5 Linda Blount 13th Jul 2019

    The kindness, support, help and planning your staff, particularly Janice Chetwynd gave us for my mothers funeral was second to none. At a very difficult time, everything was so well organised and taken care of that it really eased the pressure for myself and my family. Everything was done with such sensitivity and on the day of the funeral, Kevan guided us through everything with so much kindness. The flowers were really beautiful, the order of service booklets, so well put together and the catering services were amazing. Although it was my mum's funeral, it was just the most lovely day and will actually stick in my mind as a really happy day - my mother would have loved it as a real celebration of her long life. Thank you all so much - Kind regards Linda Blount

  • 5 Roger Heath 22nd Jun 2019

    The whole family were delighted with the care taken by Janice to explain and then assist in the selection of the various aspects of both the actual funeral service and transport. The gentlemen driving, moving the coffin and related tasks at the chapel were perfect. Margaret could not have asked for a more fitting send off. I personally was very pleased with the appearance of Margaret in her coffin. She looked peaceful which was far from how she had been in the final weeks of her life. Thank you for doing her hair so neatly and not putting lots of make up on her face. I survived the Tuesday funeral mainly because I was able to be with her on the previous day. Your costs were most reasonable and well explained. Thank you so much Co-op Funeral Service, Tamworth.   

  • 5 Lee Sanders 10th Jun 2019

    Throughout the complete process of arranging my fathers funeral the Tamworth Co-operative Funeral Service, was flawless  A massive thank you to everyone at the Tamworth Co-operative Funeral Service 👏👏

  • 5 Martin Gair 20th May 2019

    Excellent service can not fault any of it

  • 5 Paul Edward Keightley 17th May 2019

    We would like to thank Janice for how she organised dad's funeral and the lovely Order of Service booklets she designed for us, they were fantastic!!!. The only fault we found albeit a minor one, was the positioning of the 'Dad' wreath and the 'Wolves' crest. We had requested the 'Dad' wreath to be positioned facing the side in front of the coffin and the Wolves crest to be leaning on the coffin in the rear window. That apart we would like to thank Tamworth Coop funeral service for everything. Paul Keightley.

  • 5 Carole Fisher 23rd Feb 2019

    The team at the Co-Op in Tamworth were kind, compassionate and went above and beyond to make sure we had a fantastic service for my husband. I cannot thank them enough for the support they gave us every step of the way.  They made a very hard situation as easy as it could be and I can’t thank Cheryl and Anne enough. 

  • 5 Ian Anderson 19th Feb 2019

    Very helpful staff and helpful and understanding in our of very sad time would recommend to everyone how they help with all your requests they are always helpful in explaining how to arrange everything 

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.
