About our Heywood funeral home

For many years, Cottage Funeral Directors have been caring for the families of Heywood. You can count on us to give you our support and guidance as we arrange a personal and dignified funeral for your loved one.

We understand how important it is to get things right when it comes to saying farewell to those we love. You will get an unparalleled standard of care from our qualified and compassionate funeral directors.

By getting to know you, your family and how your loved one liked to live, we will arrange the day so it matches all your needs. We will tailor every aspect, so it is a unique and memorable tribute to your loved one's life.

If you would like a religious service, we are close to a number of churches. Saint Luke’s Parish Church, Heywood Baptist Church, Saint Josephs R C Church and Saint James Church Heywood are all less than a mile away.

Equally, we can also cater for all contemporary and non-religious funerals. Whatever your beliefs, we will organise a fitting farewell.

You can easily access our funeral home from the surrounding towns of Bury, Rochdale, Middleton, Royton, Chadderton and Oldham.

We offer both an Attended and Unattended funeral. We have a team on hand 24 hours a day to help you; all you have to do is pick up the phone. Call us today on 01706 624998 to talk through your personal requirements.

  • You don't have to make an appointment at our funeral homes. However, doing so will ensure that someone can be available to cater to your needs. When arranging a funeral, our Funeral Directors are happy to visit you in your own home, if required.

  • If you choose to arrange the funeral with us, you will be given the option of a complimentary Funeral Notice. We will set it up for you using the details discussed during the arrangements. All we need is an email address.

The staff at Cottage Funeral Directors were both very professional in their services but more importantly at such a sad and stressful time their kind thoughtful actions helped my family to cope with a very upsetting time. Special thanks to Alysia who was so helpful to us. Also to Kevin for his kind and thoughtful ministrations. Special people providing a special service. Once again thank you so much.
