Hopkins Bray Funeral Directors, Urmston
About our Urmston funeral home
We have experience in arranging funerals of all types, no matter what your religion or belief, we will organise something bespoke and special for your loved one's funeral.
If a religious service is your preference, we are central to a number of local churches. Saint Clement’s Church, Our Lady & the English Martyrs, Greenfield Church, Unitarian Church and Urmston Methodist Church are all less than half a mile away.
Every aspect of the day can be personalised to meet your needs, from the cortege route to the flowers, to the music played throughout the service.
You can find our funeral home on Station Road, just a short walk from Urmston train station. There are a number of bus stops close to our funeral directors, which connect us to the rest of Greater Manchester, including our neighbouring areas of Carrington, Flixton, Stretford, Sale, Eccles and Trafford Park.
In our funeral home, we have three private chapels of rest, where you and your family can spend time with your loved one before the day of the funeral. You can use our chapels to say goodbye in your own way.
We promise to be there at all times for you, which is why our lines are open 24 hours a day. Please phone us, as soon as you need us.

Frequently asked questions
When someone dies, the first steps will depend on how and where the person passed away. Our step-by-step guides will walk you through the practical steps. For additional support and personal advice, please get in touch with us.
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.
Third party funeral costs are additional charges which we will manage for you and attach to your single invoice. Get in touch with us to confirm costs and plan a funeral to fit your budget.
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.
Dignity Funeral Plans let you pay for your funeral in advance and at today's price. It's a way of taking control of the unexpected, setting out the arrangements and limiting the costs by paying for the services included in the funeral plan upfront.
Reviews of our services
Rob and Sue were very helpful and caring.
Mike conducted the service and we felt that he really cared and knew mum personally.
Everything went very smoothly and we were treated with kindness and respect throughout the whole process.
The staff (especially Robert, whom I mainly dealt with) behaved with a gentle quiet and calm dignity, and showed me a lot of sympathy and understanding, without being at all patronising.
It made my position at such a difficult and emotional time so much easier and helped to finalize everything to my needs, choices and expectations.
I cannot thank them enough.
Rob and Nichola made the whole process as easy as it could be during this very difficult time. Nothing was too much trouble, they struck just the right tone and they really listened. I’m very grateful for the care they gave. To be a funeral director takes many special qualities and Rob and Nichola have those qualities in abundance.
Again, a heartfelt thank you on behalf of my Dad and from myself.
With warmest wishes,
Linda and family
