We are a third generation independent family business arranging and conducting funerals from our base in Prestbury, near Macclesfield, Cheshire.
Still operating from the original premises in Prestbury, we have considerable local knowledge as Funeral Directors and from our former contacts as General Builders.
Established in 1919 by John William Brocklehurst, the reins were then taken up by his three sons, Eric, Ted and Rex. Today the company is run by Peter and Bill who have continued the traditions that the company was founded.
The principal funeral directors are Peter Brocklehurst, who holds a Diploma in Funeral Directing and his brother Bill. To help ensure we offer a personal service, both attend to all the arrangements and conduct the funeral on the day ensuring that you will see the same people throughout. The arrangements can be made at our office or in the comfort of your home.
The care and preparation of the deceased is carried out by Bill's wife, Kath Brocklehurst, who is a qualified nurse and embalmer and has recently finished a course in cosmetics for the funeral trade.
We employ our own full-time staff, including two funeral directors, and operate a full 24-hour personal service so that we're always available to give free help and advice with enquiries and instructions. It is however difficult to cover all eventualities in a website summary, and as a result we are always available to provide personal advice.
At all times the director will be supported by two trained, experienced members of staff and a private ambulance that can respond to the directors' instructions on a 24-hour call-out basis, 365 days a year.
Most funerals we undertake still follow a traditional pattern, but we have the experience necessary to cater for individual wishes.
We supply all types of coffins: solid wood, oak, metal, willow and eco-friendly materials with a variety of finishes. Similarly, cremation urns for the burial of ashes can be supplied in many different styles. In accordance with your wishes and with our experience, we will always achieve a professional service.
We operate our own fleets of traditional Daimler limousines plus hearse and new Mercedes limousine and hearse. We are able to organise most means of transport from horse-drawn carriages and motorcycle sidecar to Rolls Royce or Mercedes cars in various colours. We arrange and conduct funerals throughout the United Kingdom and organise repatriations both into and from the UK to anywhere in the world.
