At the heart of our ethos is a desire to help families to have a beautiful , unique and fitting farewell for their loved one.

We take time to gain an understanding of you and your family’s values and beliefs and what is important to you.

We work closely with you and can either fulfil your ideas or offer appropriate suggestions for creating a funeral that reflects your person’s unique personality.

You might want a funeral that is eco, modern, traditional or totally unique.

An authentic farewell can be full of love, pride and even hope as well as acknowledging the sadness of your loss.

We arrange funerals in Manchester, West Yorkshire, Lancashire and Cheshire.

Our services and costs

We offer many different options but want to keep choices and costs easy to understand.

We consider our costs very reasonable compared to many other funeral services. We are transparent about our pricing. A funeral is tailored to your needs so that you aren’t paying for a ‘package’ that has items in it that you don’t want.

All funeral directors have a legal requirement to display a Standardised Price List on their website so that it is easier for the public to make comparisons with other local funeral directors.

Creativity to support your time of loss

We love it when families pay tribute with their own skills. We have lots of experience of supporting families and friends to; decorate the coffin, craft items for the funeral, decorate a venue, play live music, write and/or lead their own rituals.  We look forward to seeing what you create.


Funerals with faith, and non-religious funerals

We work closely with a variety of ministers from all faiths. We also work with some great humanist, civil and non-religious funeral leaders. You might have a non religious leader in mind. If not we take time to understand you and then recommend someone that we feel is the right fit.

We also regularly support families to lead the ceremony themselves. As well as arranging funeral ceremonies in churches and places of worship we are able to offer a choice of non-religious venues for a funeral ceremony including our beautiful ceremony hall.


Funerals with faith Non-religious funerals

We also provide eco-friendly coffins

We source our coffins from experienced coffin designers and makers, who are all committed to using the most environmentally sustainable materials as possible, being entirely biodegradable, and suitable for cremation, traditional burial and woodland burial.

Our coffins are available as part a funeral you’re arranging with Natural Endings.
