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 can't thank the team at Deighan's enough for the excellent, sensitive and compassionate service they provided in making the arrangements for Tony's funeral. Ian, Shirley, Ken, Katie, Anthony and all of the team really did 'walk the extra mile for us', which was a great comfort to us all at a very difficult time. Ian's daily phonecalls, in particular, were so supportive and reassuring. Every element of their work was conducted with the utmost courtesy and professionalism. Deighan's provided faultless service and we highly recommend them to anyone.

The moment we walked in and met Shirley we knew this is who we wanted to take care of mum. Shirley, Katie and Ian were ultimate professionals, caring, always available, compassionate and made this sad time a little easier. I would highly recommended Deighans, they provided such a personal service and nothing was too much trouble for them. Outstanding!
