Guide to Funeral Directors in Manchester

One of the North of England’s major cities, Manchester has a population of over half a million, with over 2.5 million people living in the greater surrounding area. Greater Manchester is the UK’s second most populous urban area after London. Serving the culturally diverse population are over 200 funeral homes operating across the city.

With a relatively large proportion of Chinese, Arab and Asian residents, Manchester is a multicultural city, home to many different religions, including Islam and Hinduism. As a result, many Manchester funeral directors have experience arranging funerals for people of different faiths and there are several funeral homes specialising in offering Muslim funeral services.

Approximately 20% of people living in Manchester identify as having no religion. This means that most funeral directors in Manchester are likely to have extensive experience with secular, non-religious or Humanist funeral services.

Manchester City Council operates seven cemeteries in the area, with a cemetery and crematorium at Blackley. These cemeteries are open every day of the year, while cremations take place Monday to Friday. Other crematoria and cemeteries are available in Altrincham, Stockport, Tameside and Salford.

From start to finish Paul at Unique was very professional, compassionate and caring and even took the time to sit and have a coffee and a chat with me when I was very upset. Could not have asked for any more and I have no hesitation in recommending Unique Funerals.

I would like to sincerely thank you so much for everything you did, your kindness and impeccable professionalism. The service was so much more than I ever expected. My utmost gratitude not only for yesterday but over the last couple of weeks. The support and compassion you showed when dealing with my difficult circumstances was such a comfort and meant a lot to me. Yesterday's Service was just what everyone wanted, from start to finish. Andy has delivered such a beautiful personal service as well. The reception venue you recommended was lovely. Please convey my thanks to your staff who helped delivering the dignified and graceful farewell throughout. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart. God bless.

Deighans Funeral Parlour are in short a credit to themselves. They treat you with such compassion, dignity and total respect. When I first approached Ian Davies at Deighans my Mother was very poorly, but still alive. We discussed my thoughts and put a plan in place for when she would eventually pass away. God bless her. Ian was a true professional from start to finish. He personally collected my Dear Mum from Bolton Hospice and then took her in peace to Deighans. Both Katie and Shirley would light candles daily and make the family feel so comfortable with the whole difficult process. I would highly recommend Deighans. They are trustworthy, genuine, loving and very considerate. God bless my wonderful Mum and thank you to all the team at Deighans X
