A new East of England Co-op funeral branch will open in Stowmarket this week to extend its support to the town’s community.

The new Meredith Greengrass Funeral Services branch will be based at Ipswich Street, Stowmarket, and will complement the existing branch in Marriotts Walk.

The new branch will be run by Chris Sparkes and Victoria Gwilliam and will open on Thursday, extending the services the team are able to offer.

Chris said: “With the new branch we can now ensure that when it comes to that incredibly difficult time of saying goodbye to a loved one, our services, including bereavement support, are more accessible than ever to more people in and around Stowmarket.”

The new Ipswich Street branch will also offer funeral arranging services, guidance on monumental masonry and information on pre-paid funeral plans.

The existing branch on Marriotts Walk will continue to offer these services as well as also providing chapel of rest facilities.
