About our Bolton funeral home

At Birtwistle’s Funeral Directors in Bolton, it is our duty to be there for you in your time of need. We are here to take care of all the funeral arrangements for your loved one's farewell, treating you with uncompromising compassion every step of the way.

You can find our funeral home on Halliwell Road, a few doors down from the Robin Hood Inn. We are a short distance away from the A58 – Moss Bank Way and the Blackburn Road, which means we are easily accessible from the whole of Bolton.

We cater for everyone in our local community, no matter what beliefs or preferences you may have. The MA Mission Mosque is on the same road as our funeral directors and we are close to the Taiyabah Mosque, Masjid-e-Noorul, the Parish of Saint Paul, Bolton Parish Church and the Bank Street Unitarian Chapel, so we can arrange the service to match all your religious needs.

If you would prefer a humanist or non-religious service, you can still trust us to organise a beautiful send off for your loved one.

Our recently refurbished funeral home is a comfortable and welcoming place for you to visit during your time of need. Our facilities are maintained to the highest standards, so we can look after your loved one with dignity and respect.

We are here for you, 24 hours a day. Please pick up the phone and call us as soon as you need us.

Vanessa & all the Funeral directors at Birtwistle’s were kind considerate and dignified in making the funeral arrangements for our late brother, Ernest Joseph MacDonald. Nothing was too much trouble and we were kept up to date with the arrangements.
We had difficulty in planning this funeral as I live in London, Ernest was in Warrington and the funeral took place in Bolton. It was during the middle of the covid lockdown so even more potential difficulties.

The funeral directors organised so much for us, identifying and liaising with the celebrant for the service and the limousine. We were very pleased with the professional services provided which had a personal touch. Vanessa treated the family and in particular, our Mother with respect and sensitivity which made this very difficult day so much easier than it could have been. They all made us feel we were among friends.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Birtwistles to others.

Thank you for everything.

The reception and service provided was excellent. It is a comfort to have such arrangements made for us and explained to us. The crematorium used allowed 22 people in the chapel which allowed for all our family members plus a few friends. The celebrant recommended to us was excellent. The whole service was beautiful.

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
