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.

Excellent and sensitive personal service. Nothing was too much trouble for Deighans. They went above and beyond to support the family and I would highly recommend anyone to use Deighans services.

All staff from deighans especially ian was absolutely brilliant from day 1. Ian came to my mothers house where he explained the process on what goes on to look after my dad and they looked after him very well! Not pushy for payment. Many phone calls to see if everything’s ok and to reassure us on there side everything was in order. Funeral went without a hitch and if there was we didn’t see any! Many thanks lee.
