Funeral Directors in Braintree, Essex
Chelmsford Star Co-operative Funeral Services has two branches in Braintree: one is in George Yard, right in the town centre, where people are welcome to come and see us to discuss funeral arrangements.
The other is in light and relaxing surroundings in Clare Road, a former modern church. This branch offers not only a chapel of rest where you can visit your loved one in private but also an adjoining chapel where we can arrange a special remembrance service, whatever their faith. We also arrange non-religious funerals.
We have plenty of parking available in front of our Clare Road funeral home. If coming by public transport, our nearest bus stop is in London Road and we are just a short 5-10 minute walk from the bus station in town and the train station.
As well as serving the community in Braintree since 1993, we also support families in Bocking, Halstead and Witham, working closely with local churches as well as the Three Counties Crematorium in Braintree.

Kari joined our funeral team in 2017. With experience in childminding, elderly care, and counselling, her career has developed to the funeral business as she says it is the last nice thing you can do for somebody.
Kari has a creative background, enjoying arts and crafts in her spare time. She lives in Chelmsford with her teenage children, but can be found running our Braintree branch on Clare Road.
Lynne joined us late in 2017, and works in our branch in George Yard Shopping Centre, following time in our Dunmow branch.
She enjoys learning about the lives and history of the people coming into her care, and using that to make sure any arrangements meet their and the family’s needs.
Lynne lives near Dunmow with her husband, following a spell living abroad, and enjoys water aerobics and walking their dog Bullseye through the fields of Stebbing.
Please call Lynne on 01376 528408 for help with arranging a funeral. Click here to find out more about our Funeral Directors and Operatives.
