Co-op funeral home to open in Alton

Co-operative Funeralcare has announced the opening of its Alton branch, with an open event taking place on 10 July.

The event will have a mix of “charity, cakes and coffins” with proceeds going to local charities.

A special donation will also be made to The Vokes Lunch Club which provides a local place for the over 60s in Alton to meet others and have an enjoyable lunch in a safe place.

Funeral coordinator Emma Dulieu said: “We know first hand how baffling funerals can be. There is a lot to think about – floral tributes, coffins, caskets, memorial masonry, pre-paid funeral plans and lots more. Our open event will be a time to celebrate our opening and a chance to support some of our valuable local causes.

“But it will also give people the opportunity to ask questions in a relaxed environment. People will be able to find out about all things funeral-related whilst enjoying some drinks and nibbles.”
