Award-winning independent funeral directors based in Chorlton, Manchester.
We provide a full funeral service including arranging and conducting the funeral.
At the heart of the Natural Endings ethos is a desire to help families to have a beautiful, unique and fitting farewell for their loved one.
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.
The time between a death and a funeral offers unique chances to say goodbye in our own way that will take us well into our future. We believe in paying tribute with individual skills and creativity rather than the buying of products.
The farewell can be full of love, pride and even hope as well as acknowledging the sadness of your loss. We are independent funeral directors and so can be very flexible on your funeral choices.
We also welcome families that would like to be more involved in the preparation and the funeral. Families sometimes wash and dress their friend or relative (though this isn’t for everyone). We’ve had families make a coffin or something decorative for the top of it. Occasionally a family might want to lead their own ceremony or come together in a different kind of way.
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. We can do as much or as little as you need.
We provide same-sex care of the deceased.
We don’t offer funeral ‘packages’, each funeral is tailored to meet your individual needs. We try to be transparent about our pricing, see our guide to example prices. We are happy to provide you with a no-commitment estimate of costs.
Thank you. Mum’s funeral was just how she would have wanted it to be. Many people have said how beautiful it was. I was hugely re-assured to find a female funeral director to take care of Mum. Your very human approach removed the fusty top-hat and gloom that I feared.More of our testimonials.
Funerals, burials and cremations
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. Other options we can provide include for ashes to be scattered by fireworks or plane, or transformed into a diamond, glass pendent or locket.
Coffins and funeral transport
We provide a large selection of coffins including traditional caskets, biodegradable eco-coffins, and decorative coffins.
Your choice of funeral transport including traditional black hearse and limousines, horse drawn hearse (black or white), silver hearse and limousines, VW Beetle Hearse, four kinds of motorbike hearses, vintage hearses, and even a vintage lorry.
