At Co-op Legal Services we help and support thousands of bereaved individuals and families many of whom come to us from Co-op Funeralcare. As part of the Co-op Group, our values of openness, honesty, social responsibility and caring for others are core to the service we provide.

With our Probate Complete Service we take full responsibility for getting the Grant of Probate and dealing with the Legal, Tax (excluding VAT), Property and Estate Administration affairs. We can settle the cost of a Co-op Funeralcare funeral and reimburse any deposit paid, as soon as you have instructed us to represent you; providing that the Estate owns assets that can be liquidated.

There are no upfront costs to pay as our Probate fees are deferred and will be taken from the Estate once it is in funds. Once we have provided you with a written quote for the agreed work to be done, that price will not change unless the original information we are given is shown to be incorrect or circumstances change.

Our customers consistently rate the quality of our legal advice and services at 4.4 out of 5 stars.
