“Unique funerals Walkden arranged my father’s funeral last year. Paul was outstanding. He took the stress and worry away from the family as he assisted with every aspect. Professional and friendly but more so a very kind person. The staff are all on hand to help or answer any questions 24/7. I cannot stress that a such a traumatic time for any family Unique funerals is the best by far.”

Kind Words...

Would like to say a big thankyou to Paul and his team for both my mum and dads funerals. Paul took care of my mums funeral five years ago and did a fantastic job he was fantastic to us as a family and has recently done my dads funeral. Again cant praise him enough."

The service the family received from the beginning to the end was more than we couldve ever wished or asked for. Paul gave Mum the send off she deserved. After battling with cancer, they made Mum look beautiful and at peace which was lovely for all the family. They even opened up on a Sunday for us to spend time with Mum on her birthday. Everyone said it was the best funeral they had ever been to. The cost was extremely reasonable and the personal touches was perfect. The extra special gestures, releasing balloons (mums favourite colour) and book marks etc that made the day even more special"
I just have to say a huge thank you to Paul and Stuart they have been amazing, They made what’s been a really difficult time really easy and explained step by step what needed to be done. I’m honoured my dad spent his days resting with them, I felt piece knowing he was in Paul’s care , they really did take good care of him there so compassionate and caring and that comes across in conversations and the time that was put into Into making sure Dad had everything he needed. There so patient and gentle when it comes to all the decisions that have to be made. Stuart really takes the time to sit with you and get to know your loved one and this makes for a beautiful and true service I couldn’t be happier with the words

Stuart spoke of my dad from all the memories and enjoyable times we shared with him.
Again thank you from myself and my brothers as well as my Dad who I know would be so proud and grateful of the service you helped us give him he can know rest in peace.
