Chelmsford Star Co-operative belongs to its members, whilst our members belong to the communities in which we serve. 

They should actively participate in the running of the Society, through forums and elections, and support the ethical and co-operative values that underpin our business. In return, they will share in our successes via a share of our profits, and through special member discount events.

A share account can be opened for just £1

Charity of the Year

Each spring we ask our employees to vote for their preferred Charity of the Year. The name of the charity with the most votes is then announced at our annual general meeting.  For 2015/16 we have chosen to support MIND.

During the year we will support our chosen charity not only by raising funds from events and initiatives but also by helping them raise awareness.

Burial or Crematium

The choice between burial and cremation is a very personal one and may be influenced by many factors, such as family tradition, religion or the wishes of the person who has died.

The most common form of burial is in a churchyard or cemetery. Subject to local regulations and availability, you normally have the choice between using a new or existing grave. 


A keepsake is something kept, or given, in memory of somebody. It really can be anything, a photograph, jewellery, an ornament or even a lock of hair (a bit macabre, but very popular in Victorian times). We can advise and organise numerous keepsakes, some are very beautiful and some are very garish, some are amazing, and others are out of this world (literally).
