Our Service to You

We provide a very personal service that includes taking 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 loved ones unique personality. The farewell can be full of love, pride and even hope as well as acknowledging the sadness of your loss.

We understand that lives are busy at this time and that there is lots to do. By appointment we can visit you at home, to take arrangements and give you a no-commitment estimate. Alternatively you can visit us at the funeral home in Chorlton.

We are independent funeral directors and so can be very flexible on your funeral choices. We don’t offer funeral ‘packages’, each funeral is tailored to meet your individual needs. We also offer pre-payment funeral plans.

We are happy to arrange civil or humanist funerals  as well as religious ones. In these cases we introduce you to a humanist celebrant or civil funeral leader. Alternatively we can support you to lead the service yourselves.

Following a cremation, there are many options for the remains, such as for ashes to be placed in an urn, buried in the Garden of Remembrance at the crematorium, or scattered at sea.
