Co-op Funeral Directors in Danbury, Essex
Our Danbury branch of Chelmsford Star Co-operative Funeral Services opened in 2007 and is located in Main Road.
You are welcome to visit us to arrange a funeral and we have a counselling room where we can provide you with the support you need as well as a Chapel of Rest, where you can view your loved one in private.
We also have a display room for our coffins, giving you the opportunity to choose the right coffin to meet your needs.
Our branch serves families living in Danbury, Bicknacre, Woodham Ferrers, Woodham Walter, Woodham Mortimer, Cold Norton, Purleigh and Little Baddow.
We are connected to a number of local churches including St John’s in Danbury, St Andrew’s in Bicknacre and St Mary’s in Woodham Ferrers. Our local crematorium is in Chelmsford.
Parking is available behind our funeral home or on Church Green. If using public transport, there is a bus stop immediately outside our branch.

Meet our family liaison officers
Vanda joined the company as a Family Liaison Officer in 2019, but she is no stranger to Danbury.
Prior to working with us, Vanda worked at Danbury’s tea rooms, and also sings as part of the local choir. Her hobbies include reading and running.
Vanda job shares with Sian, and looks after much of our masonry work. She says she enjoys her work as, “I like to help families when they’re going through hard times”.
Having worked within another area of Chelmsford Star Co-op since 2017, Sian decided to make the move in to the funeral division in 2021.
Sian hopes that her new role will allow her to help people, specifically by alleviating some of their stress in what could be someone’s most difficult and vulnerable time.
Her spare time is dedicated to her family life, and to further her interest in history.
Testimonials for Danbury Funeral Directors
When lockdown started, your bereavement group - which I've been a member of for 6 years - had to be suspended. However, this hasn't stopped your branch manager being in regular contact. The group would like to thank Jackie for her continued support during these challenging times.
Mr P. Ingatestone
Everyone was personable and respectful of mum, and of us as a family. We were impressed by the professionalism of all staff, including Caroline who stood outside the office this morning whilst the funeral director walked slowly in front of the hearse.
The J. family, Danbury
Very happy with the service we received. In the current circumstances we were kept well informed and everything was done very efficiently. Special thanks to Jane who was very helpful.
Mrs E, Broomfield
I was grateful for the team who collected dad and for Kari who called me to explain the funeral process. No funeral can ever really be described as "cheap" but Kari was able to help me not waste money. She was kind and caring throughout the organising stages and we got the service we planned.
Mrs L, Braintree
"Thank you so much for helping to make the funeral a day to remember for us all, your guys were so professional and caring."
