About our Urmston funeral home

Here at Hopkins Bray Funeral Directors, it is our honour to serve the families of Urmston and give them nothing but the best standard of funeral care. For many years, the local community has entrusted us to look after them in their times of need and this is something we are proud of.

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.

Could not fault, I felt like I could always pick up the phone if I had to. Very respectful, everything we wanted was done kept us informed at every stage. When we went to see mum she really did look like she was sleeping.

We would like to send a sincere thank you to Nicola and Rob who supported us throughout mum's funeral arrangements; and to Sue who was just amazing on the day itself. The team at Hopkins Bray provide a truly human, sensitive and caring approach which was deeply appreciated. I have some significant health issues myself; which initially cast some doubt as to whether I would be able to actually attend the service. The team went above & beyond to ensure we felt safe from the moment we arrived in the car park to the moment we left. Thank you so much for making an extremely difficult time much more bearable.
Response from Hopkins Bray Funeral Directors
Thank you for your thoughtful and detailed review. It is incredibly helpful to other families in the same circumstances as yourself. Our quality of care is something we are proud of and we know what a difference it makes to the families in their time of need. Your kind words mean a great deal to the team who always work very hard to deliver great care.

I found the whole process of my husband's funeral from the very first meeting through to the after follow-up, was handled by Hopkins Bray in a truly professional manner.
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.

As Hopkins Bray had dealt with my Mum’s funeral, I knew I was in safe hands.
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,
Imogen Murray

Being the first funeral that l personally have had to oversee, l was quite anxious and nervous not knowing what to do or expect but Rob was extremely patient and understanding right from my first phone call. My calls and the visit l made to the Urmston branch were handled in a friendly and courteous way and l had every confidence that the funeral l was overseeing would be delivered exactly as my Aunt wanted. My thanks go to Rob for his part in my Aunts departure and Hopkins Bray for a perfect deliverance. Thank you
