Funeral Zone has really helped bring our family together. Plus the COOP Stirchley and Sharon, in particular, were brilliant.

Marie McBain 1st Aug 2018

From the minute we had to start funeral aŕrangements for dad the Co-op have been nothing other than respectful/compassionate and professional. We saw dad many times in the chapel, often just turning up impromptu and it was never an issue to let us see him. Communication was spot on. Highly recommend

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 Pershore Road our Funeralcare Stirchley funeral home has dedicated rooms of remembrance and is ideally located to serve the families of Stirchley.

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.

  • 5 Tony Clifton 28th Jul 2018

    Thank you for helping us cope with a very difficult time for the family. All the staff came into contact with were very considerate and sensitive to the way we felt. Carol Walker who was my primary contact showed a genuine interest in my deceased mothers life, and although I changed my mind on timings, she always put me at my ease. We also thought that my mother was very well presented whilst at rest in the parlour.

  • 3 Margaret Elaine McCann 24th Apr 2018

    The service we have received there has always been great in the past but this time we experienced some issues with regards to the organisation of my Uncles funeral which unfortunately we were not happy with. The issues were mostly resolved but it was a difficult time as it was without encountering problems along the way.

    Jennie Martin replied
    Hello Margaret. We fully understand the loss of a loved one is an extremely sensitive time for the families we are privileged to serve. We strive to provide the best service possible at all times and I'm sorry to hear that, on this occasion, our service fell short of our usually high standards. May I take this opportunity to thank you for your feedback. Best wishes, Jennie at Central England Co-operative
