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.

Absolutely amazing service. From the meeting with Dominic at my home i felt less stressed and assured everything would be taken care of. I know its not something people want to think about but i would definitely recommend Memories to make the process as easy as possible during the difficult time.

I would highly recommend Memories Funeral Services, I was kept informed every step of the way and felt that my mum was in the safest of hands. Dominic and Sandra were extremely kind and considerate and Dominic was really helpful, explaining what was happening and what would happen next. I’ve already recommended them to people I my opinion, they are the best at what they do and I am very grateful to them for being so efficient and making a very sad and daunting task so much easier for me to get through.

Professional at all times and paid specific attention to the wishes of the family without any problems whatsoever . Kept in constant touch so that there was a minimum of worry for the bereaved at a most stressful and upsetting time. I would recommend Memories to any bereaved family because they can provide anything that is asked for and with added compassion. All at such a reasonable price. Thank you.

Very good service and no different to a more costlier service. Dominic kept in constant contact as my mothers funeral was a little longer than first thought. Thank you to dominic and his team.
