Arrange an appointment

Your funeral director will make an appointment with you to start the funeral arrangements. This appointment can take place over the phone or at one of our funeral homes, whichever is easiest for you.

We’ll listen to you 

At your appointment we’ll listen to you to find out about the person who has died; what they were like, what their interests were, and any funeral wishes they had. You can also tell us any ideas you have for the funeral.

We’ll ask questions to make sure we arrange a funeral most fitting for the person who has died. We’ll then guide you through the decisions you’ll need to make, showing you where you can make personal touches along the way.

We’ll provide a cost

We're open about our prices and any third party costs, and when we arrange the funeral with you we’ll give you an estimate. We’ll always be honest with you about affordability, your financial options, the different ways to pay and when payments need to be made.

How much does a funeral cost?

Funeral costs vary depending on where you live in the UK, and the choices you make for the funeral. Use our funeral cost calculator to find out how much a funeral might cost at your local Co-op funeral home.

Organise the day of the funeral

There are some decisions you’ll need to make for the day of the funeral. From the coffin, to the flowers, ceremonial vehicles and music. We can arrange everything you need to make the day just right, including the wake or celebration after the service.

Some common questions

Choosing between burial or cremation is one of the first things you'll need to decide when arranging a funeral. The person who has died may have told you what they want, but if they didn’t, we can help you make the right choice for them.
