Here at Fenix Funeral Directors in Failsworth, Manchester, we can make all the arrangements for the funeral on your behalf. Whether you opt for burial or cremation, a religious or a non-religious ceremony, a large or a small service, we can assist. Fenix Funeral Directors can organise catering, floral tributes, transport, officiants, and interment on your behalf. We approach all our funerals as unique and special events. We can also offer advice on pre-paid funeral plans that can be used to cover the cost of a funeral in the future. These funeral plans are designed to save money and alleviate the potential financial burden on your family in the event of your death. Because you pay today's pricing for tomorrow's funeral, establishing a funeral plan with us makes good financial sense. Feel free to discuss this with any one of our qualified funeral directors.
Funeral services should never be impersonal. Our funeral directors will use their expertise to create a funeral service that is personal, memorable and meaningful to you and your family. This can include adding floral tributes, special music, a special hearse, or catering for a gathering after the funeral to celebrate the life your loved one lived before you lost them. Some family members like placing letters or mementoes inside the casket before burial or cremation. Our funeral directors know that these requests are very important, and we will make sure that your wishes are carried out exactly as you've requested. When you say goodbye to a family member, the funeral service should be meaningful and special. Let us help you achieve exactly that.

Our Failsworth funeral directors can help you choose a church or chapel where funeral services can be held. There is the landmark parish church of Saint John the Evangelist, set amongst trees and lawns. Very nearby is Dunamis Christian Church, a member of the Evangelical Alliance, situated in Thorley St, and the Independent Methodist Church on Roman Rd. There is also the more traditional Church of the Holy Family. Whichever location you choose, our funeral directors will organise the service, officiant, flowers, transport of the deceased, and other elements surrounding the funeral. We will also gladly go over additional options with you in person, over the phone. You can set up an appointment at any time to discuss.
Burial can be arranged at Chadderton Cemetery in Oldham, just over a 10-minute drive from the centre of Failsworth. Slightly closer is Hollinwood Cemetery, also home to the Oldham Crematorium. Opening hours here are from 9 am to 4 pm, and funerals can take place from Monday to Friday. Burial takes place in full or half-plots (if your loved one underwent cremation). Our local funeral directors will discuss the details with you.
Oldham Crematorium in Hollinwood Cemetery serves the Failsworth community and other parts of Greater Manchester. The crematorium is set within nearly thirty acres of grounds. The chapel can host a cremation service, and streaming is available so that distant family and friends can observe the service remotely. A direct cremation can take place without the presence of mourners if families prefer that option. After cremation, the ashes can be scattered in a Garden of Remembrance, interred in a half-plot or kept in an urn at your home.There is also a chapel of rest where viewing can take place before the service. We will gladly arrange a cremation and service upon request.
Yes, the terms undertaker and funeral director generally refer to the same profession. Funeral directors are often viewed as managing a funeral service or home, whereas undertakers or morticians prepare the body and coffins for burial or cremation. We refer to ourselves as funeral directors. Funeral directors take care of all elements of the funeral service.
A doctor will issue this certificate, which can be used to register the death after someone dies. You will require this document to claim from insurance or access pre-paid funeral plans your loved one may have taken out. Once you’ve received this certificate, you can submit it to Fenix Funeral Directors so that we can proceed with making the arrangements for the funeral.
Your professional funeral director will transport the body to the funeral service, usually in a hearse. This also applies to funeral services taking place at natural burial sites or crematoria. Your funeral director can discuss transport when finalising funeral arrangements. We don't want you to worry about any aspect of the logistics.
Funeral directors that do not operate as a large chain or co-op are independents. Our local funeral directors prefer being part of a smaller operation to provide a personal service to the families they support. They are more than capable of assisting you with funeral arrangements and offer a highly professional service that you can count on. As independent funeral directors, we are uniquely positioned to take care of you and your family during this challenging time.
