A dignified Direct Cremation which is an affordable alternative to a traditional Funeral.
We help you through every step of the funeral arrangements for a service at your chosen crematorium.
When no ceremony or service is required we can arrange a peaceful graveside service without a celebrant.
Just as every life is unique every farewell can be too. We offer a wide range of personalized touches.
Fenix Funeral Directors can arrange the funeral service for your loved one at one of Clayton's many chapels and churches in North Road or Edge Lane. Our professional team endeavours to treat each family we serve with compassionate care and attention to detail.
It is also possible to book a meeting close to you. You can easily select a meeting location by clicking on the markers on the map. Please be aware that you must always book an appointment in advance. Our representatives are not always on site.
Planning even a simple funeral can result in stress and anxiety for our families, which is why Fenix Funeral Directors provide a comprehensive and courteous end-to-end planning service. We will arrange all elements of the funeral, including transport and interment. Visit our website and leave a message for a funeral director to call you back.
Are there any thoughtful details you would like to add to the funeral service? Fenix Funeral Directors will add any item to the order of the service, including special hymns, flowers, readings or images. We encourage all our families to talk about their wishes as we plan the service together; it is no trouble for us to add any aspects that you feel would honour your loved one on the day of the funeral.
When you contact us at Fenix Funeral in Clayton, you never have to worry about being treated like a “customer”. For us, you are a fellow human being who needs support and help in a difficult time. You always get a personal adviser who is by your side through out the process.
Funeral services take place at St Willibrord's Roman Catholic, which has large welcoming premises and beautiful stained glass windows. There is also the option of using Clayton Methodist or St John the Baptist, which have elegant halls and ample parking nearby. Please let Fenix Funeral Directors know if you would like us to make the funeral arrangements at any venue.
Burial takes place at Phillips Park Cemetery, a pleasant site within Phillips Park near the River Medlock in Riverpark road. The cemetery holds a Green Flag Award and dates back to 1866. The cemetery is located about 3.5km east-north-east of the Manchester City centre, and the principal entrance is on the west end. The cemetery office and lodge are close to the entrance, both in the Gothic Revival Style. Unfortunately, the chapel is no longer in use, but funeral services can take place at a number of nearby churches.
Cremation can take place at Blackley Crematorium. The crematorium features a herb-bordered memorial garden and a lovely tree-lined avenue. The Centre Chapel can accommodate 300 mourners, while the two smaller venues can seat 60 respectively. If families prefer a direct cremation, a small committal ceremony will be held. There is also a collection of memorial items available for purchase. Fenix Funeral Directors will arrange the cremation service on behalf of your loved ones.
The Greater Manchester Area makes use of Blackley Crematorium, Manchester Crematorium, Oldham Crematorium, or Agecroft.
Your funeral director will provide a professional quote detailing every aspect of the funeral costs, including all third party costs and funeral director fees. We will also assist with some of the paperwork that the bereaved are required to complete.
Fenix Funeral Directors doesn't currently operate a funeral home in Clayton, but we utilise a team of trusted professional funeral directors to ensure that our families receive the best possible service, using our expertise and contacts within the community.
While a suit and tie are traditional options, the family sets the dress code, and there is no pressure to dress formally on the day.
