    My wife and family members are grateful for the care and help that H.J.Whalley gave us when we most needed it with are sad loss. We only really had contact with one person from the undertakers that was a very helpful lady called Sarah. Nothing was to much trouble when answering are questions.

    H J Whalley & Sons was first class in providing the funeral arrangements for my late wife Gillians funeral. They did everything that we asked them to do, and nothing was too much trouble.
    On the day of the funeral they came as arranged and talked us through everything, so we new exactly the procedure.
    I would not hesitate to use them again and Dignity for their service also.

    H. J. Whalley & Son acted as Funeral Directors for the requiem mass and interment of my wife. Their service was, quite simply, exemplary.

    Claire and Sarah, who were my contacts at the company, showed empathy, support, and technical knowledge and a capability to process this difficult occasion expertly, and they combined to provide a dignified and respectful “send off” that proceeded seamlessly according to family wishes. Their willingness and ability to go the “extra mile” was totally impressive.

    The pall bearers and company representatives on the day were similarly impressive.

    I would have no hesitation in recommending this company.

    Sarah was so helpful in arranging everything for us as we wanted. The day went very well and the lady who they recommended to take the service was perfect. I can’t thank them enough for their support and help through this difficult time. I would always recommend them to anyone.

    We used H Whalley & Sons for my mother's funeral in 2013 and were so impressed we used them again for my father's in May 2019. The staff were very professional, helpful and approachable and we would highly recommend Whalleys. We took out a prepaid funeral plan just weeks before my father passed away and that made planning the funeral so much easier as many of the decisions were made dispassionately.
