Salford Residents Funeral Services

Losing a loved one is a difficult and emotional experience.

We have arranged a fixed price, value for money funeral service for those who want someone to take care of arrangements for them, without any compromise on the quality of customer service provided.

The Salford Residents Funeral Service is handled by a professional funeral director.

The service is available to anyone who is arranging the funeral of someone who has died whilst living in Salford. You may also be eligible for help with funeral costs if you are on a low income.

How much is it?

The service is a fixed price so you know exactly what you will need to pay:

  • Cremation £2,498
  • Burial £2,470

According to a report publish by Sunlife in 2024 'Cost of Dying', the average cost of a funeral now stands at £4,141.
