Fenix Funeral Directors offer a professional service to Radcliffe and the Borough of Bury.

We want you to be confident and at peace, knowing that we have planned the service to your specifications.

Every person who dies has lived their own unique life. They were a father, a loving mum, a daughter, a son, a friend. Fenix Funeral Directors believe that the details matter, which is why we encourage you to include any personal details you would like to add to the funeral service that pays homage to the deceased.
We can assist with any special funeral arrangements you would like to make. These wishes can include special hymns, videos, floral tributes or other elements. Contact us over the telephone or via the web to speak to one of our professional funeral directors about realising your special wishes.

Fenix Funeral Directors know of several churches in Radcliffe that hold funeral services. Bridge Community Church is on Milltown Street, and The Parish of St Thomas and St John on New Church Street has expansive lawns, ample space and a beautiful clock tower. The Parish Church of St Andrew on St Andrew's Road has an impressive interior, painted ceilings and stained glass features. The Wesley Methodist Church on Alma Street is in North Radcliffe. The 14th-century Radcliffe Parish Church is in Church Garden, and the Radcliffe URC is on Blackburn Street. Fenix Funeral Directors can organise all the appropriate funeral arrangements and provide a full breakdown of the funeral costs.
The Radcliffe Cemetery in Bury is southwest of Fishpool and close to Manchester Bolton and Bury Reservoir. There is an area for green burials, where trees replace headstones. We can organise the burial of ashes at the cemetery or scattering Blackley, Gorton, Phillips Park, and Southern Cemetery. If the funeral ceremony takes place outside Manchester, there is an additional cost for the distribution. The site is green, with flowers and shrubs, and well-maintained. The local community members will often visit the cemetery during the week for a quiet stroll or rest and reflect. There is a small chapel within the crematorium that family members may use for the funeral service. Burial fees do apply.
Cremation usually takes place at the East Lancashire Crematorium, which is on the border of the Radcliffe cemetery. To arrange a cremation, family members need to complete a cremation application form from the Manchester council website. They require two medical certificates confirming the cause of death, signed by two different doctors unless a coroner's certificate was issued. Funeral services and the committal ceremony for direct cremations can take place within the chapel. Loved ones need to note that there is a 45-minute time limit in place. We can arrange a direct cremation, and family members can witness the charging of the cremators if their religion requires it. Fenix Funeral Directors can arrange the cremation, preparation and scattering of the ashes. We will also discuss the cremation fees with you ahead of time.
Family members usually apply for probate after making the funeral arrangements. Freeing up the estate can help families pay for the funeral cost, which is why you should make your application as soon as possible after the person has died.
Some cemeteries do not allow for funerals over the weekend; others require that families pay extra for Saturday or Sunday funerals. Our team will do our best to arrange for the funeral service to happen on the date you prefer, but an additional cost may apply. Contact us to discuss your preferences.
Fenix Funeral Directors are an independent organisation serving all areas of the United Kingdom. Independent funeral directors are often family-run and are not part of the large chains operating across the UK. The team usually consists of fewer directors. Our high standards and ethos of compassionate service remain firmly in place, no matter where you are based. We take pride in scaling our operations like a big chain while still providing the personal attention and individual care of a small funeral home.
Yes. Many individuals purchase pre-paid funeral plans to cover the cost of their future funeral service. Our pre-paid funeral plans start from only £995.
