    Courtney and the team could not have been more supportive. Having never arranged a funeral before they talked us through every step, and gave my dad the funeral we wanted for him. I cannot recommend highly enough.

  • 5 Marie Shotton 15th Feb 2021

    The care and support  was outstanding, I was kept informed every step of the way. Would recommend the Co-op for family and friends

  • 5 Diane Nelson 8th Feb 2021

    The service we received was excellent. With a special thanks to Alison, Sophie and Ann they could not have been better  in ensuring my mums wishes were carried out. They showed so much kindness, gentleness and empathy at this sad time. Checking in, and keeping the family informed throughout, I cannot thank them enough for looking after us especially in these unprecedented times. 

  • 5 Dawn Whittle 8th Feb 2021

    Was absolutely dreading making the arrangements, however Courtney made this process a lot easier . She  directed me through the paperwork with ease , and to be honest took the weight of my shoulders .  Communication was second to none , and delivered a very professional and beautiful service . In a situation like this you need that re assurance that everything will be ok , and allow the professionals to do their jobs . Trust me you will not be disappointed.

  • 5 Iain Ball 9th Jan 2021

    We couldn't have asked for a better service from the CO-OP funeral care at Washington who looked after my Mam’ s care. Their help take a great weight from our shoulders at an awful time. Ann, Sonia and Courtney were fantastic and sorted any problems we had. They were able to organise a late visit for my sister to see Mam as she had to travel from the south west. Nothing was too much trouble. The order of service was beautiful  and the care we received on the day of the funeral was second to none. Thank you everyone.

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?
