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.

Ian and his team were truly amazing. They were so professional and helped my mum through this very sad time. The personal touches they provided were outstanding. I would highly recommend this family business as opposed to a larger more impersonal one. Thank you so much Ian for taking the time and effort in all that you and continue to do for us xx
