PRESS RELEASE: Eye Funeralcare celebrates recent opening

by opening it's doors to the local community

A horse and carriage hearse lined the streets of Eye this week, when Co-op Funeralcare hosted an open day for the local community.

The building was first opened in the 1970's and was originally a Triumph motorbike shop, so in keeping with the history of the location there was also a Triumph motorbike hearse on display – just one of the unique hearses on offer from Co-op Funeralcare

The funeral home features a spacious reception area, two arrangement rooms and two chapels of rest. The Eye funeral home, on the High Street, is part of the Co-op rebrand announced in 2016.  

Guests were invited into the home for refreshments, tea and coffee whilst they were able to ask any questions they may have had about the funeral home.  

Supporting families through difficult times are Cindy Gillon and Sharon Reaveley, both of whom are Funeral Arrangers.

Cindy Gillon, Funeral Arranger for Co-op Funeralcare commented: “We’ve only been open for a couple of months, but already we’ve been delighted with the warm welcome the Eye residents have given us.  

“We are passionate about getting involved with the local community, and we thought that an open day would be the perfect way to show people that we’re always here.”
