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

What families we have helped say about us


Dear Sally Having contacted you initially in the matter of my late wife Glenys's funeral. I would like to say that Fair Price Funerals involvement was nothing but professional. My family and I were humbled by the courteousy and respect shown by all of your staff on the day coupled with immaculately turned out vehicles.
Dominic and him team gave my lovely Glenys a beautiful and respectful final journery in this life.

Please pass on our sincere thanks to all concerned at Fair Price Funerals.
Yours Sincerely Colin Main and family.

We the family Sandra - daughter, David Son and Ruth Daughter in Law just wanted to say a massive Thank You to everyone at Fair Price Funerals.
I first heard your interview on the Jeremy Vine show on BBC radio 2 a few years ago and was impressed enough then to look you up and find out more about you.
We are so glad I did everything you did for us, from Adrian meeting with us at home to arranging Alan Wycherley to conduct the service and the contact we had with Sally and Shelly was amazing, compasionate and caring, nothing was too much trouble.
We received the same dignified service we could have got elsewhere for double the price and this suited Tom's personality so well.
Your ethos of providing dignified funerals at a fair and affordable price, without compromising on any aspect sets you apart and is commendable. My Father in Law’s typical thrift even extended to his wishes for his funeral. I can say without any doubt, he would have been as pleased as punch with our choice and the service you gave him.
Thank you once again and please pass on our thanks to all concerned.
We would not hesitate to recommend your services to anyone.
Thank you again
Kindest regards
Sandra, David & Ruth

Just to say a huge thank you to Mark and Shelley for organising my dad's funeral. Both of them so friendly and genuine and nothing was too much trouble. We used a motorbike hearse for my dad from another company and everything fell into place perfectly.... Even the weather!!
The day, although a sad time, was a celebration and a perfect tribute to my dad.
Thanks again to Mark and his fab team.
Please don't hesitate to use Fairprice Funerals, we very highly recommend them.
The Thomas Family, Altrincham

Thank you everyone involved in funeral of my Mum Connie Wright = from first calling Shelley to viewing of flowers and wreaths afterwards every aspect was performed in a professional, caring, considerate manner. All calls were received sympathetically, Dominic treated everyone with utmost respect, especiallly Mum, bowing respectfully whenever near the coffin and walking in front of the hearse then helping us through the ceremony, Brian drove and support Dominic and Fiona performed a service tailored to our wishes with a combination of sympathy and humour. Overall the daunting experience was made as pleasant as possible and as their name implied F.F.P's price was incredibly attractive. Everyone attending was impressed with the level of attention to detail and care and felt we couldn't have improved anything.

Fairprice funerals does exactly what it says on the tin,a funeral at a fair price.From start to finish I could not have received better service,I don't see how another company charging a lot more could have done any better.Sally was my main contact in the office and she couldn't have been more helpful.Dominic came to the house to make the funeral arrangements and was also present on the day.I changed my mind about the additional car and as I had already paid the bill a refund cheque arrived the next day.I decieded on a humanist as neither my dad or myself are religious,Sally recommended Steven who came to the house and coaxed information from me that I had long forgotten,this translated into a lovely service with humour and a recognition of people which was exactly what I wanted.

The only thing I was unhappy about was the flowers which I ordered from Tallulah Blooms,there is a link to them from the website.They were delivered the day before the funeral which wasn't what I asked for,I asked for them to be delivered on the morning of the funeral.They did look lovely on top of the coffin and I decieded to bring them home and by the following morning they were dead in three places and had to go in the bin.I contacted the florist by email and offered to send pictures but they didn't reply.If you are going to leave the flowers then this wouldn't be a problem for you,but if you wanted to bring them home then you may have the same experience I had.

Thank you once again to all at Fairprice Funerals for a professional and compassionate day,I cannot recommend them highly enough.
Kind regards Carol and Carlton.

Hi Sally

The whole family would like me to thank you and your dedicated team, especially yourself, Dominic and Mark on the day. All of you are a credit to your business and have been truly professional and compassionate throughout. It is always a difficult time after a death and making the funeral arrangements when you don't have a plan in place, you couldn't have made it easier for our family, so thank you.

The service was excellent and a massive thank you to Fiona who you recommended to us as a Celebrant. She was just outstanding and helped join family eulogies together seamlessly, just what we were looking for.

If anyone is looking for a funeral service but is in any doubt over the low cost of Fair Price Funeral's don't be. They are truly a breath of fresh air and made my mother in law's send off one we will always cherish. Thank you so much.

I would like to thank Sally, Dominic and the team for making my brothers funeral perfect, they may be fair price but this doesn't reflect on their first class service, helpful efficient, caring and friendly, thank you for taking the stress away and making it a lovely memorable day from all the Domville family.

Sally and Dominic what can i say??? Thank you so much for ensuring Pauls send off was a really special occassion. You were helpful,professional and really friendly at all times, it really put me at ease as i have never organised a funeral before but nothing was too much for you. I cannot thank you enough for all you did to ensure Pauls funeral was diginified and a true celebration of his life. I highly recommend you to anyone. Its a top class service for a low price, Everyone commented on the day on how well you as a company did, Heres wishing you many years of success :) Thank you once again. Kind regards Jodie Chiocchi

Mark, Dominic, Sally and everyone at Fair Price Funerals, thank you SO much for what you did for us. The service you provided was faultless and the sensitivity, kindness, professionalism and respect you showed to us all and to our Mum was wonderful. As we left Mum's house, that beautiful touch of walking ahead of the hearse, Mark, was amazing. We had never expected that. The way you bowed at certain times too showed complete respect. The phone calls I had with you and with Sally were friendly, polite and helpful and the visit I had from Dominic was informative and relaxed. For such a sad occasion everything was as perfect as it could be. I would highly recommend you to anyone. Thank you again, you were wonderful. Sandy

Mark and everyone else involved, may I take this opportunity to thank you all for the service given to my Mum Sheila Thomas. You were wonderful and I couldn't have asked for more. Thank you.

To all at FPF,
Thank you so much for all your help with my husband's funeral yesterday. Sally was our first point of contact with FPF and her professionalism and reassurance convinced us from the start to use your company. Dominic was extremely helpful and efficient during his visit to our house, explaining everything very clearly.
The driver on the day was respectful and special thanks must go to Fiona the celebrant who captured my husband's personality so perfectly on the day.
Fiona led the ceremony so sympathetically and competently. She was there for all the speakers in case they fumbled and was wonderful with the children, keeping a close eye on them at all times and involving them in proceedings.
So many people commented that it was a lovely and appropriate ceremony.
I would highly recommend FPF to anybody.
Thank you so much.

May i take this opportunity to thank you all at Fair Price Funerals. From initial contact to the day of my late Nan's service your team were professional and friendly. You offer exactly the same as any other high cost funeral directors but with out the ever expanding scale of money having to be spent. Thank you all, i wish your company all the praise it receives. You are the right choice to make when family's are vulnerable at this sad time.
Kindest Regards.

Mark,Adrian,Dominic & Sally I am sorry I did not catch the other drivers names. I would like to express my thanks to you all, Sally for patience with all the phone calls & advice & support provided, Dominic for executing an extremely dignified and professional service. your name is fair price your service is far more than fair it was outstanding. i can only write this now to express my families gratitude for supporting us throughout our extremely sad time.
Finally thank you mark & Adrian for providing such an excellent service. Mags

Dear Sally,Dom,Mark and Fiona.
We would like to convey our thanks to you for the way you conducted the funeral of my mother on the 7th May. It was done with the utmost professionalism. Fiona was brilliant in the way she helped us through the service in the chapel and many remarked on how Lovely the service was, The day went quite well with much credit going to you. I can say in all honesty that my mum would have been proud of the send off we gave her. Well done to you all. Thank you again.
Brian and Barbara Campbell.

We would like to thank everyone at F.P.F for the professional & caring service provided for our mother, Bea's funeral. Everyone who attended was under the impression that Allan, the gentleman who performed the service, knew my mother personally. We would definitely recommend F.P.F to anyone who would require such a service. Thank you again.

I would like to say thank you from myself and the rest of the family for the lovely way you helped us all say goodbye to our mother/Grandmother – Irene Stuart.

From the very first phone call to Sally, who was lovely and put my mind at ease and organised for Dominic to come and speak with the family, taking the time to listen to what we wanted. The service you provided was thoughtful and caring and great relief at a time of sadness.

Everything went smoothly on the day: the music we chose; the flowers on the casket were beautiful; Dominic and his colleague were very professional and helpful throughout, even with a few last minute changes.

I would like to thank you all for everything, for being extremely professional, caring and considerate.

I would like to thank everyone at Fair Price Funerals , for making what would have been a very stressful and emotional day , a much easier one for my self and my family. Everyone that I came into contact with from F.P F were. so kind and understanding . In particular Sally , each time I spoke to her on the phone and Fiona, who took the Service at the Crematorium , she did a wonderful job and people commented afterwards how beautifully she read the poem which I had selected at the Service.
It was just by chance , two years ago when I happened to be listening to Radio 4 , that I heard the interview with the managing director of F.P F. and I thought at the time what a wonderful organisation he had founded . Everything went so well on the day and I was more than satisfied .Heartfelt thanks to everyone involved.

On behalf of my family I would like to say many thanks to sally for her very professional way of organising the funeral of my sister Brenda the funeral went really smooth I would also like to thank mark and Matthew who were very understanding and they helped and stayed with us until after the funeral also a big thank you to Fiona for the wonderful service she gave about Brenda and her life everyone commented how nice it was again thanks to sally and her team xxxxx val


A small note of thanks for all your help and assistance in relation to the recent Funeral of my late Mother, Margaret.

From my initial enquiry until the the actual Cremation Service earlier this week I, and my Brothers, have been happy and impressed with the communication and guidance that Mark, Sally, Dominic and the rest of your team have provided us with.

The arrangements were dealt with the utmost professionalism and discretion and everything went on the day as we hoped - better actually.

A very big thank you to Fiona, who not only came out to meet with us beforehand to discuss what we hoped to achieve on the day but also was able to offer us her immense experience and provide additional words on the day which made the occasion such a memorable one. The whole proceedings were conducted efficiently, with dignity, humour and grace. 

Very many thanks to you all. You made a difficult day more easy to manage.

Please don't take this the wrong way, but I hope we don't meet again soon........ but should the need arise - you can be sure that someone within the family will be in touch. Happy to recommend you to anyone.


Peter Booker

Thank you very much for organising my Husbands funeral for me, I was impressed by your friendly sensitive approach Which made me feel at ease at such a difficult time. I would also like to thank you for finding recordings of Maria Callas singing, I feel that added an extra special touch. All the mourners were very impressed with the minister and commented on how lovely the funeral was. I can strongly recommend your company to anyone.

Again Thank you very much

Pamela Cooke

Great service from start to finish, a pleasure to deal with especially under the circumstances I would highly recommend fair price funerals to anyone.
Thank you

Just a few lines to say I am very grateful to you all for making
yesterday so much easier for me and Tony's immediate family.  Your
service was everything I wanted and you were sensitive at all times.  So
I hope I was one of your easier customers.  I am a businesswoman so I am
demanding but for all the best reasons in this case.  I was saying
goodbye to my long term partner and also a superb professional in his
own capacity.

I have had so many lovely comments, emails and calls today about the
ceremony itself and how uplifting people felt it was.  It all ran
smoothly which was my fear as there isn't time for a rehearsal and
speakers came from London and The Potteries to be there with us.  I
really only had one opportunity to do this and could not afford to look
back on it feeling it could have been done better.

Sally smoothed my path originally and I am very grateful to her for
that.  As I am to Shirley, our celebrant, Dominic for taking charge of
the funeral and anyone else involved.
I would not hesitate to recommend you all.
Best wishes and thanks again.

Helen (Tony Cockcroft's funeral)

We would like to thank Sally and Dominic and all the staff at fair price funerals,

For helping us arrange a lovely funeral for our son Paul and putting us all at ease.

With his sudden passing we were worried with the increase of funeral prices until a close friend recommended fair price funerals.

We were pleased we could request for a personal touch to the funeral to best suit the personality of our son which was Star Wars.

the bearers were really friendly and polite to all our family and showed respect and dignity to our son Paul.

We would use their service again and recommend to others.


once again a big thank you to you all 

Pauline and Frank (Bolton)


Thank you to everyone who helped handle our Dad's funeral yesterday.

As our Dad died suddenly we weren't at all prepared for the daunting task of his funeral and were quite worried but you all handled us with care and the upmost consideration. We were kept up tp date with everything and everything was explained.

The funeral itself was handled with the dignity and respect our beloved Dad deserved. The service was a celebration of his life and really beautiful and the Minister Fiona was really lovely.

We really couldn't of asked for anything better, your service was second to none and your price could not have been beaten.

Again we thank you.

Vicky and Jacqui Tracey

Dear Sally,

I wish to thank all of the staff who organised and attended at my mother's funeral. Everything was handled with great sensitivity and a quiet efficiency. I felt that I could not have wished for more at a very difficult time. The funeral was really beautiful. Thank you so much.


Kind regards


Dear Sally 


My sister Susan and I would like to thank you,Dominic and all the staff for all your help and the beautiful funeral service of our mother, the late Alice Grimley. We would also like to say that the service by Darren was exactly what we were hoping for,in reflecting the life of our dear mum.It was humerous,sad, and poignant at all the right moments and was a perfect tribute to the life of Alice.Everyone who attended commented on how good the service was performed.

Your Sincerely,



Having to organise a Funeral for my Father who was staying with us had not been planned and therefore I had not got anyone in mind when my Father Died. As a matter of principle I would not use one of the Funeral Directors based at the entrance of Stepping Hill Hospital as I think it smacks of ambulance chasing with them being in such a prominant place. I am so glad that we did use Cremdirect as from the moment I spoke to Sally I knew we were in safe hands. The staff were so helpful and professional and the service conducted by Fiona was just what we wanted. Everything was perfectly arranged and seamless taking all the stress off our shoulders Thank you so much, a great team and a great price. I would have no hesitation in recommending Cremdirect to anyone.

To all the staff at Cremdirect, I would like to say a sincere thank you for the wonderful, professional service you provided at this very difficult time! Not knowing what to do as never had to deal with a funeral before, you were always at the end of the phone! On the day the way that the funeral was conducted was extremely professional, dignified and your staff were compassionate! I would not hesitate to recommend Cremdirect to anyone! Kind regards, Sue Ireland and Family

I would like to say thank you for your services in dealing with the death of my much loved son and brother from the phone call to Lee coming to the house to see me and my daughter he was so lovely also i liked to thank Fiona for her lovely words on the day it made it special that it looked she knew my son and also how Lee looked after thing at the crem. in Lytham he was so good and kind he even managed to get a lock of my sons hair which was so short that i could keep i would recommend his place and the people who worked for him again thank you for your good services elaine and sarah hardcastle preston

I would like to say a very big thankyou to lee and sally and all the staff at cremdirect for the very proffesional and caring funeral of my father bernard nicholls. we booked through you after reading some testimonials on your website and all i can say was how very very good and caring you all are it was a pleasure to meet lee . sally kept us informed every step of the way as i have never had to do this before it took a lot of strain off me and i and my family are very gratefull to you. i hope your buiness goes from strengh to strengh you deserve it . it just goes to show the price you charge is half the price of local funeral directors and as far as i am concerned yours is 100% better. thankyou all once again. michelline.

Hi Sally, my sister & I would like to thank all at Crem direct for the professional and sensitive way that you handled my mothers funeral in Preston recently. From the very first phone call, the service you provided was thoughtful and caring and your suggestions were most appreciated. In particular, the attendance of a Humanist minister to conduct the short service was a really nice idea. Fiona was low key but sensitive and proved to be just was needed at the service. At a difficult and emotional time it was good to have the support of a profesional company around us and Ruth and I thank you for that. Kind regards Roy Hayes

I would like to convey my thanks to you for the way you conducted the funeral of my mother on the 23rd May. It was done with the utmost professionalism and at a very fair cost too. Fiona was brilliant in the way she helped us through the service in the chapel and many remarked on how nice and unconventional it was. Lee was excellent in the way he carried out his task with absolute politeness and respect for the occasion, a true gentleman. The day went quite well with much credit going to you. I can say in all honesty that my mum would have been proud of the send off we gave her. Well done to you all!


I can and will thoroughly recommend you to anyone I know who has or is about to experience a bereavement.


Best regards,

I would like to thank you all on behalf of the Griffiths family, When our grandad passed away, we found ourselves in a difficult situation, ringing around local funeral directors the price of a simple funeral was topping £3500, money we didnt have. After searching online we came across Crem direct, I gave Sally a call to enquire the details, she was lovely and put my mind at ease straight away and organised for Lee to come and speak with the family, taking the time to listen to what we wanted. Nothing is too much trouble, from the music we wanted to the crematorium we wanted, it was all sorted for us, a big relief at a time of great sadness. As my grandad was not a religious man we opted for a humanitarian service, this was conducted by Fiona, for just a small fee, I found it most comforting the way she spoke about grandad. It was as if she had known him. The family had gathered different pieces of writing grandad had done throughout the years and it was lovely to hear them read out. Everyone was saying what a nice service it was, and agreed it would have been what grandad wanted. I would recommend your services to everyone. Miss S Griffiths and Family

Sadly we have had to use the services of Crem Direct twice in three weeks as both my parents passed away. We had done some research earlier in the year as their deaths were expected. I cannot emphasise enough DO NOT be put off by the name or think Crem Direct will cut corners to achieve the price. The service has been first class. Dominic has been to our home twice and has been excellent with the right balance of sensitivity, care and support. Whenever we have called and spoken to Sally the phone has been answered promptly and she has answered our questions swiftly. They do not have fancy offices, just offer a straight-forward caring service, allowing you to tailor make your requirements, and if you want "extras" or have additional needs this is no problem. A big thank you to all the team for making this stressful time bearable Regards David Harding

Would just like to thank cremdirect for conducting My Fathers funeral as we couldn't of asked for a more concerning, friendly and helpul service. Don't let the price put you off as these people give you what all the other overpriced people give you and were constantly on the phone ensuring that everything was going ok. We never once were pushed into buying things you dont need and were given advice rather than being sold stuff. A special thankyou to Dom and Sally who went the extra mile to help us and gave us a first class and compassionate service. At times when your sad and vulnerable other service providers can take advantage of you but at Cremdirect you never ever feel pressured and I personally would recommend them to anyone. Thanks again your were excellent, Peter.

Dear Fiona,

I would just like to thank you so much for the service you performed yesterday.

Everybody said how great it was.

The way you went about things, stopped it being a time of great sadness, but a time to say goodbye.Many people afterwards told me what a beautiful song 'I Believe' was, so it was a great idea to play it in the middle.

Keep safe & well,

All our thanks,

Hello Sally,
Roger and I would like you and your team for the professional and thoughtful way you conducted all aspects of Edith's funeral. We would recommend you to our friends who needed these services.Thank you again and please tell Fiona her service was perfect .

Dear Adrian and Sally and Everyone

I would like to thank every one at Crem Direct for their help and care for helping my husband and I through a difficult time.

The funeral was for Douglas M Simpson and you all guided us through each step until in the end it was perfect. 

Adrian was a great help in each step and I hope he now likes Chopin.  Sally helped to guide us initially and found the music Mr Simpson would have liked.

The casket was perfect and we felt very comfortable with all of it.  I made a donation to Cancer research instead of flowers so that sits well with us also.

Thank you for the extra support of the bearers which made more of a crowd to attend this funeral.

Regard to you all

Patricia and David Bowling

The shock of a sudden passing is hard enough to cope with, however, an additional shock maybe encountered when one realises that a funeral has to be arranged and paid for. Acting on behalf of my elderly parents, I had to quickly re-arrange my plans after being quoted £3,000 to £3,500 for a simple cremation service. After a quick search on the Internet I soon found the CREMDIRECT Web site, which contained all the relevant information and was very easy to understand. When I phoned CREMDIRECT to book my brother's funeral, I found the staff to be warm and friendly and sympathetic to my needs. The total cost of the funeral vvas £1,870 which included a Humanist Celebrant (Fiona) AND THERE WERE NO HIDDEN EXTRAS. I ordered a simple wreath from the florist recommended on the Web site, which was delivered directly to CREMDIRECT the night before the funeral. The florist 'Tallulah Blooms' offer a wide range of products and the fact they delivered these to CREMDIRECT took all the stress out of the situation (this being one less thing to worry about).
My brother's funeral was held on Friday 22nd March 2013, which of all mornings, just happened to be the morning when the North West of England received a LARGE AMOUNT OF SNOW. I was really worried that the service would be canceled, but received a reasuring phone call to say the Hearse was on its way and everything was going ahead as planned. I am truly grateful for all of the staff who turned out in those dreadful conditions and made the service possible. As for the service - my brother was not religious, therefore the idea of a Humanist Celebrant to conduct the service suited our needs. Fiona did an excellent job of celebrating my brother's life which included some lovely poems some of which appeared to have been written just for him.
The death of any family member is obviously not a pleasant experience, but if you are planning a cremation you can certainly ease the financial side of things by using this funeral director. This is the first time I have ever had to arrange a funeral and in my experience I would certainly recommend CREMDIRECT to anyone.
