Uttoxeter Co-operative Funeral Service
“We cannot thank you enough. You did everything we asked and so much more. It meant so much to us all.”
Uttoxeter Co-operative Funeral Service – traditional and themed ceremonies
Families wishing to arrange a funeral can expect a caring, sympathetic and professional service which meets their individual needs at the Co-op in Uttoxeter High Street.
We provide everyone who walks through our door with the highest standards of care and support during a difficult time.
Our trained, compassionate staff will listen to your wishes and guide you through the formalities involved in laying a loved one to rest. They will also make sure the funeral service is a fitting tribute to the deceased.
We help people to organise a dignified send-off for a relative or a friend that reflects their funeral wishes and is also affordable.
Through the national Fair Funerals pledge, which the Co-op in Uttoxeter is signed up to, our funeral arrangers will advise you on which choices best suit your budget.
We pride ourselves not just on organising traditional church services, but also on being flexible by doing our utmost to fulfil your requests – no matter how unusual they are. Our themed funerals provide an opportunity to celebrate the character and interests of someone who was special in your life.
They may have had a favourite colour, a profession or a hobby which you would like to see commemorated in some form, perhaps in the floral tributes or even the coffin itself. We can arrange this, as well as many other special features from motorcycle and horse-drawn hearses to a lone piper playing at the graveside, to give just a few examples. There are countless options for personalising the occasion and making it memorable.
Others prefer a more traditional service. We have years of experience of providing burials and cremations for people of all faiths (or none).
Our Uttoxeter funeral home has been extensively refurbished and offers a comfortable environment in which to discuss your requirements in private. We will also come to your home on request.
The families in our care often come to regard our staff with the affection they would usually reserve for a close relative. Many return to visit us – whether it’s to organise another funeral or to help them come to terms with their loss. Where appropriate, our staff will point people to local bereavement counsellors.

We belong to an award-winning and long-established group of funeral directors
The Co-op Funeral Service in Uttoxeter is part of the Tamworth Co-operative Society which has been arranging funerals for more than 125 years. It is one of the last remaining, truly independent co-operatives in the UK.
We, therefore, have the full resources, professionalism and expertise of a highly respected organisation at our disposal. In 2016, the Society won a national Good Funeral Award for its innovative bereavement care services.
In the same year, we became one of the first funeral operators in the country to sign the Fair Funerals pledge – demonstrating our commitment to providing a transparent and affordable service.
For more information about our services, including pre-arrangement and pre-payment options, please contact our Uttoxeter branch. We operate a 24-hour helpline.
