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.

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.

    The service we received from John Garside, for my Dad's funeral, definitely exceeded our expectations. Their compassion and professionalism, throughout, was second to none. Garside's couldn't do enough to help and the staff went out of their way to help us as a family. They made my Dad's funeral service and burial, beautiful. Unfortunately, my Mum sadly passed away, shortly after my Dad was buried, and because she witnessed the brilliant service Garsides had provided for my Dad, we had no hesitation of using them again, for the funeral of my Mum. John Garside executed two funerals for our family, which were both beautiful and we will be forever grateful to the funeral directors and all involved, that our parents were laid to rest, in a manner which they deserved.

    They looked after me really well. No request seemed a problem. Probably the best funeral I’ve ever been to and I used to work for a funeral company so I’ve been to lots.

    We could not have been happier with the service we received. Nothing was too much trouble for the team. They made a difficult time more bearable and we had a beautiful, personalised funeral for my dad. It was very special. The level of support given to myself and my mother was wonderful. Special thanks to Sam, Malcolm and Sandra
