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.

We would just like to thank Paul and Helen for an exceptional and first class service. We couldnt believe we was sitting in your living room planning our Mam funeral she was so young and it was just to soon. But with your help and compassion, We was able to plan our mams funeral. You made our mam look so beautiful, comfortable and so peaceful and for this we can not thank you enough. The service you provided was 5* plus, if anybody is unfortunate to lose somebody please dont hesitate give Paul Williams a call, you wont get a better service anywhere else. Thanks again Paul,Helen& colleagues.

I would not hesitate in recommending Deighan’s as what was the most devastating time in our lives Ian and Shirley were absolutely marvellous. They made the process so easy advising us on many things we would never have thought of. Ian carried out our mums service and he made it so special as if he’d known mum all her life. Fantastic team

Excellent compassionate company that dealt with all the arrangements with no issues at all. So comforting to know my mum was looked after so well whilst in their care. Would recommend to anyone and not just in Horwich- my arrangements were for Worsley.
