Ken Gregory & Sons Funeral Directors, Kirkby
About our Kirkby funeral home
Built under the guidance of Ken, Chris and Ann Gregory opened this funeral home with nothing but a “board on the street”. It was their love and commitment to the families that surround them that helped them become the reputable and professional funeral directors that they are today.
It is with the same commitment and compassion, that has been instilled in us by our founders, that we promise to take care of you, your loved one and all the funeral arrangements.
We understand how difficult and confusing this time can be, which is why we will take our time to ensure you are comfortable with all the funeral arrangements being made.
How you want to say goodbye to your loved one is completely up to you. Just let us know what your preferences are, whether that is a cremation, a religious service or a bespoke ceremony to celebrate the memory of your loved one.
No detail is too small to account for and your comfort is always important to us. We have a fleet of cars and a memorial display available to view and a private chapel of rest, should you wish to visit your loved one before the day of the funeral.
Whatever you need, please do not hesitate to ask. You can reach us at any time, day or night. We are here for you.

Reviews of our services
Highly recommend service received from all involved.[ Special thanks to Ellie.]
Due to the next service being close behind us I felt we were hurried away perhaps a few minutes too soon as I didn't have time to talk to all the mourners before having to leave. This may of course, have been dictated by the Crematorium rather than yourselves and would otherwise have been 5 star.
Thank you so much
The process was very simple from start to finish thanks to a lady called Clair. At all times she was there to help no matter what we required and I always felt that I was treated with the utmost respect.
The whole day of the funeral was planned to perfection.
Thank you to all at Ken Gregory and a special THANK YOU to Clair.
I am sorry to hear that we did not tell you the date of the funeral in a timely manner.
