Our funeral director, David & all of the team at Gilpin Lodge are the most empathetic, considerate & helpful  people, whilst still maintaining a superb standard of professionalism. Unfortunately this is the second family funeral I have had to arrange within the past six months & I can not thank them enough for their support during both. I would not hesitate in recommending them, as both funerals were conducted with such care & attention. Even at this difficult time, with all the restrictions, both funerals felt very personal to all our family.

  • 5 Beverley Knox 10th Jan 2021

    Couldn't have asked for anyone to be more caring and supportive than the staff at Houghton Co Op Funeral Care - especially Funeral Director, Simon. He was genuinely interested in us as a family and explained everything that was to happen and options open to us. A distressing time was made as stress-free and light-hearted as is possible in these circumstances. Thank you so much.

    Would like to thank both Simon and David for the care and attention during our sad loss, so much so that we are considering arranging our own funerals some time soon. I would also like to thank Simon for his time trying to locate dads ashes.

    David Simm and his staff were throughout professional, courteous and respectful. David ensured that we were given as much help and support that we needed during the difficult two weeks. It was a comfort to know that they were only a telephone call away whenever it was needed. I would fully recommend them. With many thanks Kay O'Hara

  • 5 Karen Peel 14th Dec 2020

    I dealt with David at the Houghton branch, I can’t fault him at all, from beginning to end always kind and professional, excellent communication from himself and other staff, listened to what we wanted and went above and beyond to make sure everything was as we had asked, a bereavement is a devastating time for any family but once Harry was taken to Houghton David’s reassurance made us feel like Harry was being looked after , even in death and that is what you need to know for peace of mind, a credit to your company

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.

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?
