Traditional Funerals

For many people, traditional funerals represent everything they want to experience when the time comes to say goodbye to their loved one. Our experienced and caring family will ensure everything is in place to make your day exactly how you want it to be, and we’ll look after all the little details that combine to make the perfect traditional memorial service.

As an overview of our traditional service.

  • You can visit your loved one in our chapel at any time to suit you
  • You can chose either of our funeral homes (Congleton or Crewe)
  • Your loved one can be dressed in their own clothes
  • You can choose all the music and a celebrant or minister
  • The cortege can leave from a location of your choice such as a home
  • You can choose the route the cortege travels to the crematorium

FAQs & Advice

We’re always happy to talk to you if you have any questions or queries regarding our services, but you may find the answers you need among our Frequently Asked Questions. If you still need help, please call our friendly team at any time.

We answer our phone 24 hours a day, no matter what we are doing. We would rather you call us at 3am and then get a good night’s sleep, rather than waiting until 10am and being up all night worrying about something. We’re here to support you, no matter what time it is.
No. You don’t need to wait for the doctor, death certificate, registrar or the coroner before making arrangements. We’re experienced and we’re professional in our approach to how we arrange funerals. We work to realistic timelines to ensure that a funeral can be completed in a timely manner. This is usually within two weeks of someone passing away. If we waited for death certificates before we began making the arrangements, this would probably extend to over three weeks.
We can offer a direct cremation service, like you may have seen on TV with the likes of Pure and Simplicita, for £1200 (inclusive of all fees). We can offer a simple attended funeral, again fully inclusive of all fees (doctors, cremation, celebrant fees), for £2600. For a traditional funeral service that may include things like flowers, an order of service, newspaper notices, a limousine etc, you should expect a total cost of approximately £3500 to £4000.
