Theresa is one of the most compassionate people we have met. We cannot thank her enough for her care and sensitivity; our needs were dealt with efficiently and with compassion. This is the fifth time that Theresa and the team at the Co-Op in Yardley have supported our family with funeral arrangements and on each occasion our grief was acknowledged and Theresa was able to help us through the very difficult process sensitively and efficiently. This is one of the most difficult things anyone can have to do while they are still grieving - being able to trust your funeral director goes some way to easing the process. We truly can't thank the team enough. The Oldnall Family

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

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.

    Excellent service. My family and l were very satisfied with the way the Furneral was organised by TERESA in the office to The Horses & carriage to the burial. I would definitely recommend The Birmingham Co-op Furneral Services. Many thanks for all your Help and Support at this most distressing moment.

    Theresa in the office was empathetic and helpful. On hand when we had queries. And various useful tips which helped. Vince accommodated various beliefs within the family, which helped us to all be happy with the result on an important day. Theresa who lead out was smart, punctual and respectful. Likewise the bearers for the coffin. Also staff at Nechells, who also helped initially. On behalf of myself and our family would like to thank all of you for helping us through a challenging time.

    The coop handled my mothers funeral in a very professional way. We could not fault Teresa Bubb who was seeing the overall funeral planning, her help was appreciated at a very difficult time.

    The service provided by Co-op Funeralcare in Yardley is excellent. A lovely lady called Teresa has guided me through this difficult time with great compassion and thought and her attention to detail is second to none. Thank you so much for a first class service.
