Our funeral home on Baxter Lane was purpose built in the 1980s to support Sutton and the surrounding communities including Addbotsfield, Ashtons Green, Peasley Cross, Narshall’s Cross and Burtonwood.

Originally, the living quarters of our founder, Mr Dennis Fisher, were above the funeral home, but they were converted to add additional space in 1997. We then merged with W G Dixon of Bickerstaff Street to become Fisher & Dixon Funeral Directors.

You can get in touch with us 24 hours a day by calling us on 01744 813407. We are here to support you at every step of the way.

As most families we were dreading the task of going to the funeral directors as this brought home to us the reality that we really had lost our beloved family member.

We were met at the door by Rosie, who immediately put us at ease, then talked us through the process and what was needed from us to get everything in place, Rosie also made a point of letting us know that certain aspects could still be change and we still had time to process and get our heads together.

The service went without a hitch, the flowers were beautiful. The eulogy was delivered with ease, sensitivity and warmth by the celebrant recommended by Fisher and Dixon.

The Staff on the day guided us through, nothing was too much trouble. We can’t thank Rosie and the team at Fisher and Dixon enough.

At an extremely difficult time in our lives Rosie, Georgina and the team were the stability we needed as we navigated the early days of our grief. They helped us with every aspect of planning my husband's funeral and ensured that he had the funeral that he, and we, wanted him to have.

Thank you to everyone - I'm very grateful to you. AW

All members of the team treated my mum with dignity and respect. From collecting her from home, looking after her in the chapel of rest and the final farewell at the crematorium. The staff were very supportive throughout to our family.

Staff were very friendly and knowledgeable about the process required. They were very accommodating in trying to book the funeral service to suit the family’s needs. This was much appreciated when the Coroner’s Office delayed the original Funeral date.
Their ability to provide suggestions for Order of Service and at the same time co-ordinating family requests with the Crematorium staff was much appreciated.

a family member took out a funeral plan with dignity excellent idea everything you require sorted for you,all your wishes cared for and she selected Fisher and Dixon as her Funeral Director, once I contacted Dignity everything was put into action with great thought for ourselves, soon after Fisher and Dixon contacted myself and with great sincerity and thought they covered all the details and paperwork that I needed to do, they did everything they could for us and we were extremely grateful, so much so that I have taken a Dignity plan for myself and my wife and without hesitation chosen Fisher and Dixon as our Funeral Directors, I would highly recommend both Dignity and Fisher and Dixon.
