Arranging a Funeral

Cooksley’s Independent Funeral Services have over 30 years of experience arranging and directing funerals. Our Funeral Directors will be on hand to guide and assist you in creating a unique and personal funeral to remember your loved ones by.

We all have our own way of dealing with the loss of a loved one. The first thing to consider is what type of burial or cremation you would you like and what you should include in the service. Such as hymns, songs, poetry, photographic tributes and order of service.

We are upfront and honest with our fees and provide a competitive service. As the only Independent Funeral Directors in Wellingborough we are able to work with you to accommodate your individual needs and requirements.

After the funeral, you may wish to decide on whether to arrange a lasting memorial for your loved one. If there has been a cremation, you may wish to make arrangements for the cremated remains. Such as the scattering or interment of ashes, or the purchase of urns, keepsakes or jewellery. If there has been a burial, you may wish to make arrangements for a headstone to be placed.
