About our Standish funeral home
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.
We want you to know that you are not alone, so give us a call at any hour and we will be there to help you.

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.
