About Us

John Garside & Son Funeral Directors have been part of the Biddulph and Stoke-on-Trent community since 1856. Originally a furniture shop on Cross Street, Mr John Garside expanded and joined the funeral business after two decades.

Our duty is to treat everyone in our care with compassion and dignity; the same way we would treat our own family members. We have expertise in all types of funerals; whether your preference is a religious, traditional or contemporary ceremony, we can cater to your needs.

We understand no two people are the same and funerals should be no different, which is why you can have full control over every aspect of your loved one’s farewell. Our responsibility is to ensure the day reflects the way your loved one lived their life, creating a lasting memory for you, your family and friends.

For over 150 years, we have been offering the local communities of Timbersbrook, Biddulph Moor, Gillow Heath, Mow Cop, Harriseahead, Packmoor, Brown Edge and Congleton from our other funeral home.

The well-being of you and your family is of the utmost importance to us at John Garside & Son, so please call us at any hour and we will be here to help you.

Our Simple funeral is available for £1,885 + 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 01782 513210 to talk through your personal requirements.

    Sandra was our director. She made our heartbreaking experience bearable and became an Angel in our time of need. All their staff showed compassion and understanding. We were so lucky to have chosen them.
