About Us

We are Alex Taylor Funeral Directors, and from our purpose built funeral home on Old Greasby Road, we provide the Wirral with an exceptional standard of funeral care. You can find our funeral directors on the grounds of the old Saint Marys Churchyard. Just around the corner from the Horse and Jockey pub in Upton.

Helping you organise a special and personal funeral for your loved one is our number one priority. We will listen to your every wish and ensure all your needs are catered for. You have full control over every aspect of the day, from the time of the service, to the floral tributes, to the funeral vehicles.

We have expertise in all types of funeral services. Whether your preference is a religious, non religious or contemporary ceremony, we have the right experience to fulfil your needs.

At Alex Taylor Funeral Directors, we love the local community, and we have been part of the Wirral for over 80 years.

Since our doors first opened, we have arranged beautiful and unique funeral services. These have been organised from our funeral directors here in Upton and our other funeral home in Birkenhead. Throughout the years, we have also helped the families of Moreton, Greasby, Frankby, Meols West Kirby and Thurstaston.

Because our funeral home was purpose built, it has been designed with you in mind. There is a car park at the back of the building and four chapels of rest, so you can spend time with your loved one before the day.

We have a team on hand 24 hours a day, all you have to do is pick up the phone. We are here to assist, advise and answer any questions you may have.

Our Simple funeral is available for £1,995 + 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.
