Chesterfield have partnered with Central England Co-operative to proudly offer an exclusive Football Funeral service, allowing fans the opportunity to have a truly unique funeral.

As a result of the partnership, funeral options include arranging for the cortege to drive around the stadium, a floral wreath in the club colours or a memorial service in the fabulous memorial garden at the Proact Stadium. Excellent hospitality facilities are also available at the stadium for a funeral wake or memorial service refreshments.

Chesterfield FC Community Trust chief John Croot said: “We are delighted to have linked up with Central England Co-operative. This is a natural partnership because the stadium is a popular venue for wakes and the memorial garden, which is unique in British football, is a place where family members can remember loved ones who followed the Spireites.”

Jennifer Roome, senior funeral director at Central England Co-operative, said: “We are proud of our partnership with Chesterfield Football Club and the opportunity to offer an exclusive Football Funeral Service to the local community of Chesterfield.

“Our packages allow fans the opportunity to create a truly unique funeral, which can be tailor-made to suit individual requirements. Central England Co-operative is the region’s largest funeral director and we are dedicated to providing individual care and excellent service at all times from one of three locations in Staveley, Clay Cross and West Bars.”
