    Thank-you so much for helping me make my dads funeral so personal and dignified. Nothing was too much trouble and my dad was treated with great respect and kindness. I felt as though my dad was with family while at Birtwistles Funeral Home. It’s was a very upsetting and stressful time for our family but I really felt at ease and new that my dad was in the best hands.

    All the staff involved with my Dad's funeral were caring, professional and respectful from the very first meeting to the actual day and even afterwards. I'd certainly recommend them as a company, an extra big thank you to Darren who visited the house, took all of the details and managed the funeral day with absolute precision and care. Thank you
