The Co-op has sold its remaining crematorium businesses in a £43million deal, according to Thisismoney.

Dignity has purchased five different sites situated in Glasgow, Shropshire, South Yorkshire, Staffordshire and Greater Manchester.

All staff will transfer to Dignity and Richard Lancaster, managing director of Co-op Funeralcare, said: “This agreement is key in allowing us to further invest in providing essential funeral services to our members and customers in communities across the UK as we have done for over 100 years.”

The crematoriums operate separately from the Co-op funeral homes.
