Plans submitted for new funeral parlour in Scunthorpe

By Scunthorpe Telegraph | Posted: 5 Mar 2018

The Lincolnshire Co-op has submitted plans to open its first funeral parlour in Scunthorpe.

The £500,000-plus investment will see the Lincoln-based society go head to head against its rival Manchester-based Co-operative Group, which has been a leading undertaker in Scunthorpe for many years.

The site earmarked for the project is the former office of the North Lincolnshire Council housing advice team on Oswald Road.

The development, if approved, would include an arrangement lounge, a chapel of rest and state of art facilities.

David Dernley, Lincolnshire Co-op's head of funerals, said: "We're committed to transparent prices and helping people find a funeral they can afford. That’s why we've signed the enhanced Fair Funerals Pledge.

"We pride ourselves on delivering a valued service that's professional. affordable and sympathetic. Our funeral colleagues are highly trained and always ready to help, even if all that's needed is a cup of tea and a meaningful chat.

"If our proposals are approved, the funeral home will provide a valued service to families in and around the area."

The Lincolnshire Co-op currently operates a 21-strong chain of funeral parlours across the Lincolnshire region.
