From the outset, the arranging of the funeral was handled with dignity and courtesy. All requests regarding admitting the body into church the day before the funeral, attending at the end of the church service, provision of flowers to specific requirements, and subsequent transfer to chosen crematorium were met in full. The arrangements flowed seamlessly and with a sense of respect and sensitivity throughout. Excellent service in all aspects.

Christine Wallace 2nd Mar 2021

Everything was made as easy as it could be by these superb funeral directors. Especially Simon Devlin, who was extremely helpful, pleasant and organised. Would highly recommend to everyone. Thank you so much

My Aunt had arranged her own funeral with a Co-op plan, this helped us enormously. When she died we were able to contact the Co-op Funeral Director and they took over the arrangements. We were kept informed at every step. Due to the Covid restrictions everything was done over the phone. Informing the Registrar of her death, ordering certificates, wreaths, prayers, music. All done with help from Simon. Definitely recommend.

    The co-op Funeral Care Director Simon and the office staff were very respectful towards my late husband .I took great comfort when my late husband was taken into the care of the Funeral Director at the co-op. The Service although sad was conducted in an empathetic manner and the organisation of the service went smoothly thanks to Simon and his Staff. . I would highly recommend Funeral Care at the CO-OP.

    Friendly, helpful and easy to contact any of the staff when I needed to. The cremation itself was handled well, especially as covid is about & everyone said how lovely it went. 

  • 5 Ian Brown 15th Feb 2021

    After my dad passed away I made contact with the Cooperative funeral care as per my dads policy and spoke to the central team who too my details and passed them onto Courtney out local funeral director, Courtney has been very clear and easy to manage dad's funeral, everything went off well on the day of the funeral so all the stress of arranging the funeral was kept to a minimum.

  • 5 Mark Simpson 15th Feb 2021

    Very caring professional service. Can’t speak highly enough of Courtney and her staff

  • 5 Graham Cryer 15th Feb 2021

    Claire, who helped us with my mam's funeral a few years ago was excellent again. She took control of everything offering the right advice and guidance throughout this process. Everything ran so smoothly which was a great relief and a great stress relief too. Unfortunate circumstances that smaller numbers could attend but they are the rules and beyond the control of the Co-operative funeral service. After my mam passed my dad got his funeral plan which is invaluable. Both my wife and I have plans through the Co-operative also, as the service, help, courtesy, empathy and politeness at such a sensitive time is second to none. Plus they contacted the Humanist Val Cranston who is like a family friend over the last 3 years and conducted all of the services beautifully and this one for my dad was really special. Thank you to you all.

  • 5 Susan Walsh 22nd Dec 2020

    After my mam passed away I rang Co op funeral care in Sherrif Hill direct and asked for Simon to carry out mams funeral arrangements, this was because Simon dealt with my father's funeral last year and the service received was extremely good and of course professional so I wanted the same for mam. I find Simon and Cheryle very good at the jobs they do I find they make the whole process most comforting and professional and I thank all the team very much for the part they played helping me towards a wonderful send off for mam. Susan Walsh

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.
