10 out of 10, 5 star service received from Deighan's Funeral Parlour. Ian was fabulous, so compassionate and a truly genuine and sincere person. He went above and beyond in arranging Mary's funeral, nothing was too much trouble, he put our minds at ease and made the daunting process of arranging a funeral so much easier, he really wants to provide the best send off for a loved one as he possibly can. Thank you so much.

    The service we received was excellent. It was professional personal and friendly. We were kept updated every step of the way. Mum was well looked after and nothing was too much trouble. The funeral was thoughtful and caring and better than we could wish for during this lockdown. What could have been such an ordeal was smooth and as pain free as possible. My family cannot thank you enough .

  • 5 Robert Skillington 5th Apr 2020

    Can't thank them enough for there help and guidance under such stressful circumstances. With the loss of our eldest granson Jack Wright at only 23 years old . This is so painful as I type this but my family and Jack was treated with utmost dignity and respect .Under unprecedented circumstances with the Coroner Virus restrictions in place at this time . Thanks again from ....Robert Skillington and Glynis Holden ....Jack's grandad and Nana

  • 5 Beverley Crerar 23rd Mar 2020

    Deighan’s were spot on in all they did for us. They were helpful, professional, sympathetic but up beat. Ian did dad proud with his eulogy and an 80 year old lady said ‘it was the best funeral she had been to’....I think that was a compliment! Thank you. 

  • 5 Judith Bowling 16th Mar 2020

    I thought that both Shirley and Ian were extremely helpful friendly and very caring Also they went to great lengths to make sure everything was done to our needs and the service was conducted perfectly.

  • 5 Michelle Hughes 8th Mar 2020

  • 5 John Burgess 24th Feb 2020

    I would not have wanted my Mother to have been looked after by anyone else.  Dieghans could not have been any more helpful from start to finish. They made the whole process so much easier.  Thank you! 

  • 5 Phil Hamilton 22nd Feb 2020

    We cannot thank you enough for looking after us. You showed kindness, support and always made us feel welcome. From the very first phone calls, Ian and Katie gave us the reassurance we needed and helped us with every detail for which we are grateful. Dad would have been very proud of the funeral you arranged. We would highly recommend Deighan's.

  • 5 Karen Farnworth 21st Feb 2020

    Deighan’s are a professional funeral directors that helped me in my time of need.  Nothing was too much trouble for them and you felt they were your friends helping you when you most need that help and support. There were comments from friends and family afterwards that it was one of the best funerals they had ever been to, if you can say that about a funeral. I would certainly recommend them. 

  • 5 Lynda & Chris Gent 7th Feb 2020

  • 4 Peter Green 10th Jan 2020

    While it’s still fresh, may I tell you what a fantastic service I and the family had from Dieghans Funeral Parlour, Mason St. Horwich. They not only looked after my Jackie but the family as well. What a Caring, Sensitive and Compassionate Service they offer. They originally sold Jackie and me a Funeral Package which has covered all the costs originally included but more so, it took all the hassle out of such an horrendous ordeal. From Shirley and Ken, to Ian Davies, who has been fantastic, and all the staff leading us through that horrendous ordeal. Five* Star +. Thank you 🙏

  • 5 Andy Stott 7th Dec 2019

    Deighans have proved to myself what others have told me that they are the best at what they do, Ian and all the staff where nothing short of amazing. I can not thank Ian enough for helping me through a difficult time in both the lead up to the funeral and on the day and through the service Thanks for everything

  • 5 Deborah Fairhurst 18th Nov 2019

    I can't thank Ian and Shirley and all the team enough for everything they did for me and my family when my mam passed, they make you feel part of their family and will go above and beyond. I visited my mam in the chapel or rest everyday whilst she was there and Ian and Shirley always welcomed me with open arms, Ian preformed the service which was outstanding and a credit to him. On behalf of Julia Bloor's family we would like to thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for all that you did at a very sad time, you made it so much easier. Deborah, Carl, Eric, Stephen and family

  • 5 Carol Hynes 7th Nov 2019

    We cannot praise Deighan's highly enough for the way they looked after every aspect of Ashley's funeral. We would certainly recommend them to any family in need of the services of a funeral director. Thank you all so much.

  • 5 Steven Farrell 24th Sep 2019

    I would like to thank Deighans for all there help and support to me and my family  I would will and would recommend your company for your help and support at a time in our life when it was most needed  Thank you so much 

    Shirley Deighan replied
    Many thanks Steven. A packed Bolton Parish Church and standing room only at Overdale were a great tribute to the many people who saw Melanie as a really good friend. Thank you for your kind words and your wonderful review.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you arrange a funeral?

You can arrange a funeral by choosing a funeral director who will help you organise all of the details. They can help you decide whether to have a cremation or burial and what type of service to choose, as well as additional options, such as music and flowers. You can find out what happens at a funeral and compare funeral directors on Funeral Guide.

What are disbursements?

Disbursements are additional costs for a funeral service that are paid to third-parties, such as florists, celebrants and burial fees. The funeral director will usually charge you for them and then pay the suppliers themselves.

How can I get help with funeral costs?

If the cost of a funeral is not covered by a prepaid funeral plan, or the estate of the person who has died, you may be able to get financial help from the government’s Bereavement Support Payment or from War Disablement Pensions, charitable funds or budgeting loans.
