About Us

As the region’s leading funeral director, Central England Co-operative Funeral Service has been providing a caring and sympathetic service to Birmingham families for over 100 years.

Based on Hawthorn Road our Funeralcare Kingstanding funeral home has dedicated rooms of remembrance and is ideally located to serve the families of Kingstanding.

Our colleagues live locally and know about the culture and customs of the communities they serve, and they have excellent relationships with local clergy and officiates of all faiths, doctors, solicitors, local authorities and bereavement groups – people we can call on to help you through your time of loss.

When someone dies it can be difficult to know who to turn to for advice, especially when you have never had to organise a funeral before. When people are grieving it is the aim of our funeral directors and administrators to relieve as much of the pressure as possible. There are many aspects of funeral arrangements – sometimes requiring difficult choices – and our dedicated colleagues hope to make the process easier by offering expert advice in a caring, respectful manner.

We are members of the National Association of Funeral Directors, following their strict code of practice, and our funeral bond scheme is monitored by the Funeral Planning Authority.
When you choose Central England Co-operative Funeral Services you can be assured that every aspect of the funeral arrangements will be carried out with the utmost dignity and in accordance with your wishes.

    At a time of sadness losing my father I was comforted by the caring and professional service that the Co-op funeral company provided. I received the same service when I lost my mother in 2005. Peter McCann.

    Excellent service throughout the whole process. Dealt with changes and last minute requests in a calm and efficient manner. Staff easy to approach and very professional. The day itself was run with a calm dignity.

  • 5 Jean Holland 26th Dec 2017

    I'd like to thank you on behalf of my family for all of your support during such a difficult time. All of the staff at co-op funerals had such empathy from the moment we called you to start the arrangements. Once your team arrived at our home they understood it was such a shock to us and gave the extra time we needed. A special thank you to Selina Watts for going that extra mile to make the final goodbyes to my husband as best as they could be. I'd also like to mention what a great job your design team did with our order of service at a moments notice. Once again thank you for your support. Kind regards Mrs Jean Holland

    Jennie Martin replied
    Thank you Jean for your kind words. I'm so pleased we were able to help you through your difficult time. I will pass you comments to the team at Kingstanding and especially to Selina. With kindest regards, Jennie at Central England Co-operative

    I could not fault any one at the Kingstanding Co-op Funeralcare, from the first meeting with Alison Hucheson through all the organising up until the day. We were kept updated on everything, and on the day Debbie was so helpful and considerate of my elderly mom and all the rest of the family Thank you all so much

  • 4 Christine Beale 23rd Oct 2017

    The funeral home were really excellent my only problem was the priest, he rushed through the service and didn’t read out the poem I had given him. He also never spoke to me before or even after the service. Otherwise I would have given you 5 stars.

  • 5 Ann Burness 22nd May 2017

    All of the staff were incredibly kind and professional, they did absolutely everything that they could to help me through this difficult time. There was no limit to the number of times that I wanted to go and see my mum at the funeral home, and someone was always available to answer any questions I had. The Order of Service was printed beautifully, and exactly how I wanted. The lady conducting the funeral sat with me the day before the funeral and went through all of the arrangements with me, checking to make sure that everything was the way I wanted it. She explained that her prime role was to make sure that everything went smoothly, and that she would be looking after me. Everything went to plan, and she led the funeral with absolute respect and professionalism. I can't thank everyone enough for everything.

  • 5 Melissa Hill 22nd May 2017

    The customer service was amazing. It was all very efficient and I never had to wait very long for an answer to anything. Really pleased we chose Co-op!  X

  • 5 Samantha Mould 8th May 2017

    At such a sad time we could not ask for any better service than what we got. They were very friendly and helpful with all matters. 

  • 3 Jodi Sheldon 28th Apr 2017

    Funeral itself was dealt with efficiently and sensitively however I felt extremely upset and let down that my dads ashes were not made available on the date agreed (my dads birthday). This date was agreed when the funeral arrangements were made and also followed up by an email the day before I expected them.
