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.

Took care of everything, even finding the pink glittery coffin that Beth wanted. Can't thank them enough.

We would not hesitate in recommending Pearsons Funeral Services. Their professionalism, compassion shown to us during this difficult time was very much needed and appreciated. Nothing was too much trouble and we could contact them at any time with any questions/concerns. Thank you so much for caring for our mum Sheila Stroud.

Planning a funeral is the most trying time of someone’s life , so many questions so many decisions , my step mother who we lost had requested Paul as she had been to some of his funerals . I was blown away by his professionalism and utter respect both by himself and his sister Helen . Every detail was sorted , they sent us flowers which I thought was a beautiful touch . On the day of the funeral they were amazing I’ve never seen such respect and grace it made the day a little easier , thank you to you both and all your colleagues. I willl be highly recommending your company.
