About our Standish funeral home

You can find T. & M. E. Walsh Funeral Directors on Preston Road in Standish, Wigan. We are located only two miles away from junction 27 of the M6 and just off Wigan Road. This means we are easily accessible from Shevington, Appley Bridge, Coppull Moor, Red Rock and Wrightington.

We have knowledge and expertise in funerals of every kind, which is why we are able to serve families of all religions, especially from our Christian community; the St Wilfrid’s C of E Church is less than half a mile away.

If a religious funeral is not for you, we have an understanding of all goodbyes; no matter how unique and different. We have experience in traditional, green and humanist ceremonies, burials at sea, cremations, woodland burials and colourful celebrations of life.

Whatever your preference, we will cater; as long as it makes the day special and it is a fitting tribute to your loved one’s life. You can control every part of your loved one’s funeral; whether you want to pick the cortege route, music, hymns or type of transport. Your choices do not stop there; you can pick all aspects of their farewell; even if you think it may be eccentric and unconventional, we will do our best to help.

We want you to know you that you are not alone, and that you can call us at any hour of the day. Our dedicated and compassionate team are here 24 hours a day to serve you. They are here to give you advice and answer any questions; please do not hesitate to call.

Rating 5.0
Having used this funeral director previously when my father passed away the service again from T and M E Walsh was exemplary. From dealing with my Mum on the day she passed to the day of the funeral, they were professional, kind, considerate and understanding of the difficulties dealing with a funeral under Covid conditions. They were amazing at sorting out the details of the funeral and communicated everything so well throughout the process, and were incredible on the day. Prompt, courteous and managed everything exceptionally well. They were more than helpful with our additional family requests. The drivers were also very polite and professional. I couldn't recommend their services highly enough. They made a very difficult situation much easier to bear.
Response from T. & M. E. Walsh Funeral Directors
Thank you for this positive recommendation, it is greatly appreciated. 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.
Rating 4.0
All staff were kind courteous and sympathetic despite having to make last minute changes to the arrangements. The day itself ran very smoothly despite the Covid restrictions and our wishes were carried out professionally. The only thing I would suggest is that fresh flowers be put into the Chapel of Rest.
Response from T. & M. E. Walsh Funeral Directors

We would like to say a specific thank you to Jacki and Michelle for their professional, helpful, kind and compassionate care and support during the arrangement and follow-through with my mother’s funeral held 28/1/2020 at 11.30am at Charnock Richard Crematorium. Their attention to detail was exemplary and we were grateful for their capability to reassure and sympathise every step of the way. Thank you so much for helping to ensure my mother’s send off was effortless and made easier with your warmth, your high standards and your kindness at such an awkward and difficult time. The way you guided us gently through each stage of the process allowed me to focus on supporting the older relatives who took the time and trouble to travel from Scotland to attend the funeral. I have no hesitation in highly recommending Walsh’s of Standish.
Response from T. & M. E. Walsh Funeral Directors
I am glad that you chose T. & M. E. Walsh Funeral Directors to look after your Mother and that our staff went above and beyond to deliver the service you expected.
Rating 5.0
Having sadly lost my father and then my mother in the past 13 months, Jackie and her team have arranged and conducted their funerals and they were so supportive and took so much stress away for me. They worked with me to arrange a date for the funerals to tie in with my sister arriving from abroad where she now lives. A special moment at my father's funeral was when the Funeral Conductor wore his Liverpool FC membership tie and pin as we had You'll Never Walk Alone for Dad as he was such a huge fan. That little thing meant the world to my sister and I. Thank you once again for caring.
Response from T. & M. E. Walsh Funeral Directors
Thank you for an exceptional review. I am pleased that we provided the highest level of care and guidance for you and your family and that the arrangements for both your Mother and your Father were carried out to your satisfaction.

My fathers funeral took place on dec 5th 2019 and walshs funeral home organised everything with dignity, before, during and after the funeral. The best praise was from his wife who is in a care home, "it was a sad day, but a nice day".

Jackie was excellent, and supported us with much kindness and understanding when we were making the funeral arrangements. She was always available, either to meet or answer questions on the phone, and made a difficult and upsetting job as simple as possible for us.
I felt we were in very capable hands right from the start.
Response from T. & M. E. Walsh Funeral Directors
