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

What families we have helped say about us


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 Dorothy - we just wanted to thank you for the lovely service on Friday you made a sad day very special thanks so much

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

Hi Sally,

Just a quick e-mail to say thank you so much for the wonderful funeral for my mum, provided by you all yesterday. From start to finish, the warmth, care and professionalism of Fair Price Funerals has been amazing.

The funeral yesterday couldn’t have gone better and those sentiments were echoed by all the family. Please convey my heartfelt thanks to Andrew, for his kind attention yesterday, on what was a very emotional occasion. I should have thanked him and his team yesterday, in person, but, as my mum would say, I was rather “discombobulated” after the event and forgot to do so. I hope they didn’t think I was rude?

Please convey my thanks also to Emma at Floral Design Cheshire for the truly beautiful floral tribute – my mum would have adored the flowers.

I have left a glowing Google review for you all, a bit long I’m afraid, but you all truly deserve the accolades.

Thank you again to you and all the team at Fair Price Funerals for such a warm and dignified send off for my mum – you’re wonderful!

Best wishes,

Gwynneth Devane

Hello Leah
The family would like to express their sincere gratitude for the service provided at the funeral of our Dad , Brian Ledson both prior , during and afterwards. We would especially like to send many thanks to Andrew for his caring and sensitive manner in which he made a very traumatic experience bearable. Also, we would like to send our thanks to Dorothy who led the funeral service in such a warm and caring manner and talked about Dad as if she had known him for years. It all helped us to deal with such a very difficult time in our lives.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Debbie Sumner, Brenda Ledson and Bev Allen

To everyone who has been involved in caring for Frederick Patheyjohns and planning and delivering his funeral.  Our family would like to thank you all for the sensitivity and professional way everything was handled.  It is such an unfamiliar event and terribly sad time but Andy  is so empathetic and caring, he made it easy for us .  Also a special thanks to Leah for listening to my concerns about flowers.   

Kind regards from Hilda Pathyjohns, Ruth West, Kenny Thompson and family.

We would like to thank all the staff at Fair Price Funerals for your help, support & grace with arranging our Nanas funeral.

From my Dads initial call to Sally, you shown a great deal of empathy, guidance and professionalism. When Adrian met us at our family home, he made us feel at ease that everything was going to be taken care off. He went through everything & made sure we had all the details we needed. The service was carried out by Fiona who was so graceful in the way she talked about our Nana, she also visited us at our home before the funeral & to talk to us to get to know our Nana. Everyone that attended the service said it was very well suited and summed up our Nana perfectly it was like a family member was reading her tribute. Thank you We would definitely recommend Fair Price Funerals

All our Love, The Phillips and Family

Dear Dorothy,

I would like to thank you for conducting the funeral service of my neice Susan. 

The whole process was so sensitively handled, the empathy, and care shown made saying farewell to Susan somewhat easier. You took the time and trouble to get to know Susan in a very personal way.

The proffesionalism of the whole team is to be commended.

Thank you once again for all your hard work.

Yours sincerely,

Clare Swift

To everyone at Fair Price Funerals

Dear Leah,
Please thank all concerned for their part in my husband's funeral on Friday 4th. October.
Every one commented on what a lovely service it was. I most certainly agreed with them.
Thank you again.
Regards, Jay Cawley

Sally and all the team, just to say thank you for everything.  This has been the hardest time of our lives but with your help, organisation and compassion has been a huge comfort.  Darrons service was amazing from start to finish, Fiona spoke of Darron like she knew him personally and so many people commented about that.  As funerals go it was one of the best !  My Brother Darron was a quiet,  shy man and he would have hated all the fuss!  We had his bin wagon following behind us and so many of his work friends turned out to say goodbye in the middle of their shifts, hi -vis clothing everywhere !  They gave him a guard of honor all organised by Fiona.  

Myself,  my Mum and Dad wish to thank you for all that you did, and would recommend your Company to anyone.  Big Thank you once again

Hi Sally

I just wanted to say thank you to you and all your colleagues who were involved in organising my Mum’s funeral on Friday.  You all provided a professional and empathetic service.  In particular the communication from the gentlemen in the hearse – explaining the process; where we could park, about the Order of Service, about the flowers, about the donations was excellent.  That detail is very important and when I knew it was all being taken care of by yourselves, it meant I could focus on other things.

Thank you Fair Price Funerals.

Kind regards,

Ruth Coxon

Just a few words to say thank you all, for the help and guidance you provided at a difficult time for us all.

 Whilst I have only dealt with Sally, Fiona and Andrew, the standard of care from you all was much appreciated. and I would have no hesitation in recommending your company to anyone,

I have sent a separate note to Fiona, thanking her for her guidance at the ceremony.

You are all a true credit to your profession.

Keith Braddock.

Fiona, just a few words to say thank you for all your help, and advice both before and during the ceremony, Everyone was very impressed and made to feel at ease, One of the older granddaughters, commented how lovely it was that you made the ceremony rhyme and flow, and included everyone.

You have a special gift and use it well.

My story teller would have been very happy.

Regards Keith.

Hi Sally,
Just a quick note to say a big thank you to everyone at Fair Price
Funerals. Everyone who attended the services at the church and the crem
said that Norma was treated with respect and dignity and that the staff
were extremely helpful.
I will certainly be telling others about the cost and quality of the
service you offer.
Once again thanks for your your help.

Hi I just wanted to say how well I was looked after by Fair price Funerals. I’d never lost anyone before my Dad passed away this year unexpectedly.. They looked after all our needs and made everything run smoothly with the cremation and later looking after my Dads ashes until we could arrange his Internment Thank you Adrian and Mark and all the helpful girls in the office

Just a quick e mail to thank you for organising my mother's funeral on 22nd July. Everything went smoothly and professionally and being able to trust your company with the arrangements took a huge weight off my and my sisters minds at a time when we had so many things to do. Everyone that we dealt with there was just so friendly and helpful and the team that actually carried out the funeral handled everything so efficiently and smoothly that we had no concerns on the day.
I would not hesitate to recommend your company to anyone looking for a reasonably priced funeral that doesn't compromise on quality.
Many thanks
Mike Somers.
