Funeral manager David Downes and funeral arranger Sara Vail have been appointed to run the new branch, which is located in Wellington Street.

David, who has been a member of the East of England Co-op Funeral Services team for four years, said: “It is a privilege to open this new branch in Newmarket, offering a level of service we are very proud of.

“The East of England Co-op is committed to supporting the community in East Anglia. With this new branch we can bring care and professionalism to the people of Newmarket at a time when it is needed most.”

The Newmarket branch will provide funeral arranging services, chapel of rest facilities, guidance on monumental masonry and information on pre-paid funeral plans.

Sara Vail added: “Both David and I are proud to provide a service that is respectful, caring and understanding.

“I am really looking forward to meeting people in Newmarket and the surrounding villages, and I encourage anyone in the community to visit the branch for a cup of tea and a chat. The East of England Co-op is an organisation with community at its heart and we are always available.”
