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.

Very personal, caring, sensitive and professional. The funeral for my husband was perfect and every detail managed with the greatest compassion. My daughters were able add special touches and nothing was too much to ask for. The mass booklet was made available in Braille for my husband's friends from the Bury Tandem Club for the Visually Impaired, the flowers arranged with produce from his allotment, the funeral possession was caring and respectful, the music we requested was made available with organist and solo singer, the catering and venue was outstanding. I would like to thank Paul and Helen so much for their support during this difficult time.

Pearsons funeral service did a fantastic service from the first phone call to the last shake of hands at the end of the committal, so very kind and nothing was to much trouble for Andy and his team would recommend them.
