    I cannot find fault with the service provided by the coop funeral service. Lorraine at the woodville office was efficient professional and sympathetic with all that was involved with arranging my mother's funeral. I don't think it could have be carried out any better.

  • 5 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. 

  • 5 Jackie Kelly 28th Apr 2020

    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.

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.
