Your loved one meant the world to you, which is why their funeral service should be special. We want you to pay your respects in a way that is most fitting and reflective of the life your loved one lived, which is why we will gladly add any special touches you wish to the funeral service. This can include playing music or adding a hymn to the ceremony that carries meaning, as well as floral tributes, or even adding a special note or token to the coffin before interment or cremation. Our funeral directors understand that these requests carry special significance and will go the extra mile to include them.
When you contact us at Fenix Funeral in Leigh, 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 can be held at Leigh New Life Church, a small central chapel; the historic St Mary the Virgin, a Gothic Revival-style church built in 1873. Our funeral directors in Leigh can also recommend Wigan Road Methodist or for a smaller funeral service, the Leigh Baptist Church. Let us know if we can arrange the funeral service for your family at any one of these venues. We will arrange transport of the deceased from the funeral home to the church or chapel. Your funeral director will discuss all the options for interment with you in advance. We can also assist with hiring the officiant or celebrant to officiate the ceremony on the day of the funeral.
Burial can be arranged in Leigh Cemetery on Manchester Road. The cemetery features mature trees, a baby garden and a small chapel where funeral services can be held. We can also arrange services at any of the nearby churches or chapels. Leigh cemetery also has a new memorial Garden of Remembrance that families can visit after the cremation or interment has taken place. The cemetery is leafy and green, with plenty of wildlife and birds. Members of the local community often visit the cemetery for a peaceful stroll.
Both Leigh Cemetery and Atherton have crematoriums available. Opening hours are from 9 to 4, and later in summer. Funerals can be held Monday to Friday. After cremation, the ashes can be scattered in the Garden of Remembrance under the supervision of the crematorium staff and with the family members of the deceased in attendance. If you prefer to keep the ashes in your home, memorial plaques can be purchased from the cemetery office. A direct cremation can also be organised without the presence of mourners, according to your preferences. Our funeral directors make the arrangements for the cremation and will discuss the cost and cremation fees with you in advance.
Your funeral director will make funeral arrangements according to your needs. This can include arranging the funeral service, the burial or cremation, ceremony, catering and other components of the funeral. Arranging a funeral or memorial can be stressful, which is why we will gladly make the arrangements for you and your relatives to make things easier during this very difficult time. Our funeral directors can handle the organisation over the phone while you remain at home with your loved ones.
Funerals can be expensive, which is why you should try to plan ahead with a pre-paid funeral plan. Pre-paid funeral plans are taken out to cover the funeral costs and alleviate the financial burden your loved ones will face in the event of your death. Our compassionate team will gladly explain the costs and conditions of our funeral plans over the phone if you are interested.
You can expect to pay funeral director fees, disbursement for third party costs, the cost of the coffin or casket, and any additional services you may require. Our funeral directors will provide a detailed quote of our costs and all third party costs upfront, so you do not have to pay an unexpected bill during such a difficult time. Contact us if you need advice at any time.
We do not have funeral homes in Leigh. Instead, we use a network of trusted Leigh funeral directors so that you can be assured that we will carry out all the funeral arrangements with dignity, compassion and respect. Contact us to set up an appointment to discuss your requirements in person.
