A High Quality Funeral Service From An Independent Family Funeral Director,  Putting People Before Profit 

What families we have helped say about us


Hi Sally

I just want to thank the team at FPF for all the help & support you have afforded Avril & me.
The dealings from beginning to end have been so professional. Much sensitivity has been shown by all the staff. The lovely flowers also.
You can quote this on any reviews and it just proves that one doesn't have to spend thousands to send your loved one on his final journey.  I would recommend you to anyone.

Thank you

Hilary & Avril Jackson

I would like to thank Fair price for the lovely and professional service you carried out for my father Robert. A special thank you to Sally and Fiona for once again guiding us through what has been a very difficult time.

Norman's service

Just to say that the service you provided for my dad Norman and our family was dignified respectful and you did us proud. Your staff have been second to none. Many thanks Sally for your compassion.

On behalf of my family and myself we would like to thank Fair Price Funeral Services for the dignified Funeral Arrangements for my late Wife Doreen Gilbert..

What I can say if any of my friends in need of funeral arrangements I will certainly recommend FPF

Yours very sincerely,

I am very appreciative.

The late Malcom Harris

Good morning Sally
Thank you for your email and all your help over the past week or so. Your company, staff and especially yourself have been nothing short of fantastic .
Everyone who attended the funeral were impressed with your work and I for one is eternally grateful, I know my dad would have been proud of the send off as well.

Thanks again Matt

I'm sorry it has taken so long to write a recommendation, you just never do just after a funeral. It was only after recommending you to another. This company do both the minimum and thus the maximum to allow you to perform a funeral as you would wish - no pressure, browbeating that somehow you are belittling your loved one. They are totally professional and are not marketing for anything more than returning your loved one to where the came from. I honestly have no idea how to write a review for a funeral service. Professional, quiet, no pomp and again professional.
Thank you for myself and my family.

My husband died on 23rd August and his funeral was on 3rd September. The care and kindness shown to me by this company was first class.

Dorothy Cooper was amazing.The service presented by Dorothy was just perfect and gave all of us comfort and joy. Exactly what my husband wanted. 

Flowers from Emma, stunning

 I will never forget this company and how they helped me to cope with my sadness and grief. 

Sincere thanks to all. Catherine Green



To everyone at Fair Price Funerals

I would just like to thank everyone for all your support,kindness,respect and professionalism, especially Sally in the organizing of the funeral of our loved one Doris Needham. The service at the Crematorium given by Fiona summed up Doris perfectly and was a true celebration of her life.
Thanks again

Dorothy and Family

Hello Fiona

We just wanted to say a big thank you for being with us to celebrate Mum's life on Monday last. We felt the poems and readings you chose were lovely and very appropriate. We liked the way you linked the knowledge you had of Mum and Dad together. We felt Mum would have enjoyed it too if she could have been there. Even the weather was on our side and we were able to spend time together outside as a family in the afternoon. If possible, please could I have a copy of the poem your read for Brian and I about what a mother means to us and all the things she did for us. 

Kind regards

Pam Davies

just a quick note to say Thank you so much for Tuesday you did a wonderful job x we gave him a good send off.  

Thanks again 

Kind regards 


Thanks to Sally, Michael and all the staff at Fair Price Funerals who were very pleasant, friendly and professional. It was an extremely difficult time for me as my family were over 45 miles away and shielding etc.They ensured that everything arranged within one week of contacting them. Fiona took the service, arranged the music and made the service very special.

Thanks to you all.

Our Mum Pat, Dads girls, and family would just like to thank you so very much for the excellent service and care you provided for our Dad Ernie (Jock) From taking him from and back to our/his home to the actual funeral day. Everything was done so professionally and with such dignity and respect. The service by Fiona was very fitting and one we will remember. Thanks again, The Dow Family x x

Thank you

Jackie French

Hi Adrian and team,

The family were all very impressed with the way the funeral was conducted yesterday.
 It was very comforting to have the update phone calls from you to keep me reassured that everything was in place and running smoothly.  The last thing people need  at these time is to worry about the arrangements, so you calls put my mind at rest.
We arrived at the crematory knowing exactly how it would be conducted and you gently and respectfully guided us through the process.
Many thanks
Lorraine and family

A huge thank you for making the loss of my dad easier to bear, from the very first contact with Mark & Sally. To the final day, where everything was done with compassion and professionalism.
Can’t recommend Fair Price Funerals highly enough Thank you x

Christine Royal

Dear All 

I just wanted to thank you for the funeral service for my sister Anne Moloney yesterday and for the support and advice leading up to it. In particular, thanks to those I spoke to on the phone, Sally, Shelly and Adrian.

I have sent a message of thanks personally to Fiona and to Emma the florist.

Best regards

Alison Phelan

To Sally/Shelley My family and I would like to thank you and your staff for all your efforts and empathy during this difficult time. Every detail was carried out effectively and your process is thorough, you even suggested things which I hadn’t even thought about. Thank you all once again.

Mrs A Wright

We would just like to say a massive thank you to your team for being kind, helpful and considerate to us during this difficult time. Sally was very caring and easy to talk to when ever we had to phone her. Keith and the other gentleman on the day were very professional and everything went to plan. We will definitely, without doubt be recommending your services to other people.

Once again many thanks

Eileen & Kevin Morris

I would like to thank the entire team for their outstanding care during our recent loss.

The care and attention given was second to none. The service was immaculate and couldn't be faulted. When help, support and empathy was needed most, you gave it in abundance. As a family we will be forever grateful. God bless.xx

Re: Cremation of Peter Hernon on 19.5.20

You dealt with the cremation of my very close friend, details as above. 

The day went wonderfully, thanks to all of your staff in the Stockport office. 

Sally, was a wonderful guide and comfort during this unknown process for me. Very, very helpful, and easy to talk to. Sally I think you deserve a big bonus. Thank you so much.

Keith was also a star. He guided me on the upsetting day with clear instructions and by keeping me calm.

Both were extremely helpful and professional. 

The rest of the team were also very professional, I didn't really notice them there.

Well done everyone, you made a bad day bearable to remember. 

Thank you again, you all gave 100% at a very fair price.

I will recommend you to friends and family, I hope that doesn't sound grotesque. 

Kind regards, take care and stay safe.

Dear All at Fair Price Funerals, (Etherow),


Thank you to Sally and the lovely gentlemen that looked after my father Peter Wilson, yesterday. We were so worried about the funeral under the current circumstances, and devastated to have lost Peter, but you made a very distressing time for us all the more bearable. My heartfelt thanks from all the family to you, for caring for Peter and giving him a dignified service. Fiona was marvellous, very calming and so professional. I would highly recommend your services to others, just simply professional and dignified.

Thank you once again,

Pam and Irene Wilson

 Peter Wilson's service 

Good evening Fiona. Just wanted to thank you for lovely service this morning. We thought you pitched it perfectly and we all took great comfort from your words. Our main concern was that it would be rushed and impersonal and it thanks to you and the gentleman it was anything but.
Thank you once again for making such a difficult time bearable.

Hi Sally,

A huge thank you for all your help and giving Mum the dignified & happy send off that she would have been liked.  I have been spreading these comments to all and sundry and when i get a moment I will add to your website.

Many thanks,

Elaine Campbell-Pryde 

Just wished to say a huge thank you for the lovely service you gave for my Mother Joan yesterday.  All the family remarked upon it and it made what was a stressful experience into a most loving and happy occasion.

Good morning Sally

On behalf of all our family, would just like to say a big thank you to everyone involved in our mother's cremation. 

In very difficult circumstances it was as sensitive as possible.

The flowers were spectacular and the photos have been shared with all the family, so thank you for arranging that Sally and for creating such a beautiful arrangement Emma.

regards and thanks from our whole family

Catherine Aspinall

Thank you for all your wonderful help in organising my beloved husbands funeral.I will recommend your company without hesitation.

My thanks in particular go to sally  such a lovely compassionate person also dorothy our celebrant and the two gentlemen who looked

after richard on his final journey with dignity and respect.

Fair price arranged my mums funeral . I was a bit sceptical at first when looking for funeral companies. given that there rates are very reasonable in comparison to others.
i was very wrong this company is FANTASTIC. Sally was amazing so compassionate and helped with all the arrangements . All details were dealt with promptly and gave me reassurance that my mum was in safe hands.
The day of the funeral came and it all went according to plan . the flowers were beautiful and all involved were very respectful of our needs. thank you all so much. would highly recommend them . It is very difficult to come to turns with my loss but helped knowing that all plans were in order .

Julie McDonagh & Family 

Dear Sally and to all who work with you,

I am writing to say a heartfelt thank you for the send you helped to give Mum.
Everything was as Mum and I would have wanted and I must say the whicker coffin exceeded my expectations. My sister likened it to a large sewing basket which in my Mums case was perfect.
Thank you for starting off from the care home as it allowed the team there to say a rousing and joyful goodbye which made such a difference.
Allowing Mum to have her familiar items with her was such a comfort and to know that you took the time to put some lavender lotion on her was just so wonderful and so moving.
The service was pertinent, poignant and funny and even a little mix up in the music added something too it making somehow more bearable.
Finally whomever ordered the beautiful weather was a total star!
You have all been a joy to engage with and made a sad time a lot more gentle with your genuine caring approach.

With thanks and love.

Fiona . Thank you so much for a lovely service today for my Dad Stuart . You made my mum and all our family very proud . You were faultless .  We didn’t see you at the end as we were shaking so many hands but take this as a big thank you from all of the Allman family xxxx

Hi Fiona, 
Thank you so much for the service on Monday. I am sorry that I did not get to speak to you but I was a mess. I know that ceremonies are important but I have always been rubbish at goodbyes... probably a counsellors dream to unpick that one! Anyway the service was really good and had the essence of Dave running through it so thank you again. 

Kind regards Jane Burns 

To Sally and staff, just to say thank you so very much for the excellent service you gave us for Garry Dean, the care and compassion you showed was very comforting at such a sad time.  We are very grateful, kind regards

Pat, Kevin Dean and Family

Absolutely couldn't recommend this company highly enough.  At the saddest time in my life, I had to find a funeral director for my Dad, a very daunting experience.  I contacted a few different companies but liked the story behind the owner starting this company.  They were by far the best priced of all the companies but were offering exactly the same service.  I was initially a little concerned until Adrian arrived at our home for our initial meeting and put our minds totally at rest.  He recommended Mandy as the Celebrant to do the service.  Mandy met us, again in our home, and mum and me knew instantly that she would be perfect.  She was absolutely amazing on the day, everyone commented on just how beautiful the service was, not at all stuffy and religious.  She came across to everyone as if she had known dad for years! 

My only concern was when we posted the obituary in the local paper, I didn’t want to put the company’s name for fear people might thing we were trying to do a cheap funeral.  A note to others, suggested by Adrian, is to use the initials! 

There is nothing budget about this company other than the price compared to other funeral directors, they were AM!AZING.  Couldn’t possibly recommend them any higher!

Dear Dot, 

Sorry it has taken a few days to write to you, we have all be terribly upset now that the funeral planning is over and reality has set in. 

How can we ever thank you enough for the beautiful, sentimental, emotional and wonderful send-off you gave our Dad on Friday. 

So so many people came up to us to say what a fitting tribute it was, how it encapsulated Dad to perfection and we cannot agree more. 

I have personally been to around 7 funerals in my life and never have I ever experienced one delivered with such a personal touch. 

Everything about it was wonderful, the eulgogy itself, the way you delivered it, injecting some humour to create some uplifting smiles from the mourners, the way the music was executed, the committal, the beautiful reading and the way you allowed us some final moments with Dad at the end. 

The icing on the cake was your ingenious checkered flag which chokes me as I think about how poignant it was. 

We are truly grateful and thankful beyond words for being so empathetic to our circumstances and for allowing us all to remember the best times with Dad. 

Everybody said how proud Dad would have been. And he really would have.

Words simply cannot express our infinite gratitude, 

All our love, 

Nicky, Rachel, Sarah, Emma and all of Dad's family and friends. 


Hi Fiona
on behalf of my family I would like to thank you all very sincerely for all your help and assistance in the planning and organisation of my husband Robert's funeral,
everyone involved was so professional so respectful and with such attention to detail.
And Fiona just captured everything we wanted
In her words on and poem,someone asked me
afterwards if she was an old friend she spoke so well.

Hi Fiona,
Thank you so much for these poems and for taking the trouble to capture and send them to us.

Personally,  I think you are very good at your chosen profession and it's takes a certain type of person to do your job with so much caring and compassion,  you carry it off very well, on top of which you are an extremely likeable person. 

Thanks again and good luck to you in the future. 

Best wishes, 

Alan & Kathy Owen

Hi Dorothy 

On behalf of my family. I would like pass on my sincerest thanks for all your help and assistance in the planning,organisation and delivery of the eulogy at my father’s funeral.

All arrangements went ahead as smoothly as I hoped and it was an enormous comfort to the family at this difficult time. Many people approached me following the service to say what a warm and wonderful way to say goodbye to him.

I would have no hesitation in recommending your services and will do so if and when the opportunity arises. 

Thank you again

Kindest regards 

Karen Lyon

Hi Sally

Just wanted to say thank you to all concerned for doing such a wonderful job yesterday.  Everything ran smoothly as promised and I think mum would have been very pleased with the way the day went.

Hi Sally
Thanks for your prompt reply. Sorry you only had 2 days off!

I will be writing a review on your testimonials page when I get chance to word it all properly but I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your team once again for guiding us through what was a very stressful time.
Best regards
Ali McDaid and the family of Nigel Ridings


Dear Fiona

Just a quick word to thank you for taking such time and care on Friday for Honora’s funeral. Both Stuart and I have received a lot of very positive feedback about the service and yourself! In particular your attention to Sarah, Honora’s great niece was commented upon. As we said when we met you, we’re sure you and Honora would have gotten on very well.

With best wishes


Dear Sally,

I am writing to you to express my eternal gratitude to you and your staff for the compassionate and professional way that you all dealt with the funeral arrangements for my mum, Honora Riley, whose cremation took place at Hollinwoood Crematorium at 1130 on Friday 27 December 2019.

Right from the off, when I followed mum's written 'On my death' instructions (yes, very organised!) and contacted you, and yours was the first voice that I heard in a very unsettling time for me, you sent the tone of 'can-do', compassion, and professionalism that never disappeared throughout the next few days. Your reassurance, humanity, clarity, and understanding settled me down, and all of these qualities were then taken forward by your colleagues. I must reserve a special mention for Andy, as the first 'face to face' contact I made with your company, and at a time of even more acute stress for me, coming literally minutes after I had discovered that the hospital had stuffed up the Death Certificate, possibly destroying any chance of mum's farewell being organised for before 4 January or thereabouts. Andy's own reassurance, humanity, clarity and understanding were a beacon of light for me when the walls were most definitely closing in, and he deserves, and will always have, my deepest gratitude, and highest personal respect for being that right person at the right time for me. I will never forget what he did, and only regret that I didn't have the time during mum's service on 27 December to thank him in the most fulsome terms that he deserved.

Anyway, I am sure that you do not wish to read my purple prose all day long, even though I could continue! However, I wanted to try at least to get across to you how grateful I am, and always will be, for what you, Andy, and the rest of your staff did for me, my family, and my wonderful mum in the days following her passing. There are not words enough to thank you adequately, but I hope that I have at least gone some way to letting you know how thankful I am, and will always be for your kind treatment of us. People say 'I will never forget it' all of the time, but believe me, I never will.

You have our eternal gratitude and respect,

John Riley and family
