Birtwistle's Funeral Directors, Bolton
About our Bolton funeral home
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.

Reviews of our services
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.
