About Us

We are F J Gibb Funeral Directors in Southport and we are here to give you and your family our care and compassion during your time of need. Our mission is to organise your loved one’s farewell so it reflects their life and becomes a lasting memory for you, your family and friends.

We began helping Southport in the 1920s when Joseph Gibb founded our funeral home. Since then, we have been giving the communities of Birkdale, Blowick, Pool Hey, Brown Edge and Churchtown an unparalleled standard of funeral care. Our help has even stretched to the villages of Holmeswood, Banks, Scarisbrick and Shirdley Hill.

Our duty is to make you our number one priority; we will do this by looking after your every need and being your rock during this difficult time. We will work with you to understand how your loved one lived their life, so we can tailor their funeral to be personal and unique.

Using the expertise we have gained over the decades, we can cater for you no matter what religion or belief. Whether your preference is a religious, contemporary or traditional ceremony, we have all the necessary knowledge to arrange this.

You can take control over every last detail of your loved one’s funeral and choose the type of music, the route the cortege takes, the floral tribute or anything else you need to make the day special.

Our dedicated team are on here 24 hours a day to assist you by giving you advice or answering any questions you may have.

Our Simple funeral is available for £1,600 + third party costs, without compromising on the quality of the service that is delivered. Or our Full Service funeral can be tailored just how you wish, whether that be a traditional ceremony or a colourful celebration of life.

Call us today on 01704 551666 to talk through your personal requirements.
