Discounts on Co-op Funeralcare

Last reviewed on 31 March 2020

If you’re a Co-op colleague member you can get discounts on the cost of a Co-op funeral or funeral plan for you and your immediate family.

You’ll also get a free funeral if you die while in service (terms and conditions apply).

Your immediate family includes:

  • a spouse or partner living at the same address
  • children, step-children and adopted children (children under the age of 18 are free of charge, excluding third-party fees)
  • parents, step-parents, parents-in-law and step parents-in-law
  • grandparents and step-grandparents
  • siblings and step-siblings

If there is no Co-op Funeralcare home near you and we’re unable to provide a funeral service, there is no cash alternative.

Discount when arranging a funeral

If you’re arranging a funeral for a member of your immediate family and were a Co-op colleague member, retired colleague or academy co-op colleague at the time they died, you’ll receive £700 off the cost of the funeral.

This discount applies to our Simple, Traditional and Classic funeral choices.

You can also get a £50 discount when arranging a Cremation Without Ceremony.

Find out more about arranging a funeral on the Co-op Funeralcare website.

Discount on a funeral plan

A funeral plan lets you arrange and pay for your funeral in advance.

If you’re a Co-op colleague member, retired colleague or academy co-op colleague, you and your immediate family can save £400 on each funeral plan you purchase with Co-op Funeralcare.

You can buy a funeral plan online, over the phone, or in person at a Co-op Funeralcare home.

You can arrange a funeral in person at a Co-op Funeralcare home.
