New funeral home for Market Rasen


Lincolnshire Co-op has converted a former pub building on King Street into a new funeral home.

More than £300,000 has been invested in the facility, which includes an arrangement lounge, reception and a chapel of rest.

There’s also an extra room for families to spend private time together and it has state-of-the-art facilities for looking after clients’ loved ones.

It was officially opened on Thursday, 31st August with a special dedication ceremony.

A donation was also made to two local causes – Market Rasen Lions Club and Market Rasen Bowls Club.

Lincolnshire Co-op’s Head of Funerals David Dernley said: “We look forward to supporting people in and around Market Rasen with this new facility, whether it’s for a simple cup of tea and a chat or support through a difficult time.

“We’re proud of the professional, affordable and compassionate service we deliver and our high standard of facilities.

“We’re also committed to providing transparent prices and helping people to find a funeral they can afford - that’s why we’ve signed the enhanced Fair Funerals Pledge.”

The branch is Lincolnshire Co-op’s 20th funeral home and will begin serving the area on Friday 1st September.

It joins the Society’s travel branch in Market Place and post office and food store in John Street, in Market Rasen.
