Me and my family have been very impressed with the service provided by the Co-op in relation to all aspects of my Mum’s funeral. Their professionalism, care and commitment throughout has been exemplary. Nothing has been too much trouble, and with the backdrop of the current pandemic taking its toll on personnel, the Co-op’s ability to maintain a continuity has been commendable. Thank You Mark

From the first meeting with the Co-op Funeral directors to the completion of their services I have been very impressed. They were very professional whilst being sympathetic and very supportive to the family. We have been fully satisfied with the service provided and are grateful that a funeral plan was in place to ease the burden at a very stressful time.

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.

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?
