    From beginning to end,W.Banks provided an excellent service when my mother recently died. I actually went back to them because they took care of everything when my father died back in 2008. They listen to what each client wants and explain all the options clearly. Everything is very transparent. During a time of bereavement, everybody needs a compassionate, sincere funeral director and that is exactly what you get with W.Banks of Orrell. I cannot recommend them enough.

    After initially being anxious that my Dad would only be brought to Orrell just before the funeral all my worries were not needed. We went to see Dad at Egerton House where he was cared for with upmost respect and excellent care. Also the respect shown to my Mum was wonderful at all chapel visits and the kindness given was genuine. Nic based at Orrell branch also has shown myself and family the upmost compassion and has done everything possible to help us organise the funeral so that it brought us comfort and satisfaction that we did the right things for my Dad. Thank you to all concerned and involved with the funeral and arrangements all your efforts and help have been greatly appreciated.

    Banks recently dealt with my late fathers funeral, considering we live in Wales and Dad was on his own in Wigan everything was dealt with in a efficient manner with constant reassurance that Dad had been taken into Banks care, and was looked after with dignity and respect, Dads funeral was as he would have wanted it, no fuss,laughter and a smile.
    Thank you Banks for your professionalism, care and for making sure that we could scatter Dads ashes with our late stepmother the next day in Wigan to be reunited forever.
    Rest in Peace both, until we meet again.xxx
