A Big Mistake paying this company £4,000 pounds yes £4,000 ,Apparently it included a 30 minute service ,We was given was 27 minutes which i clocked, before being rushed out the Chapel , They only played 2 songs of the three we requested and not even the full song was played and Rachel the undertaker at Rochdale Road asking the family do we know any priests when it was her job to find one , Rachael even failed to email the priest about keeping the curtain open which was closed . Disgraceful Treatment Avoid and look Elsewhere if you want to remember your loved one in a more respectful way.

When our son passed away we choose Michael Kennedy based on the kindness and compassion during our first contact with them. We absolutely made the right choice as we felt supported throughout the difficult process of organising his funeral. The same compassionate care Yvonne has showed on our first call continued unabated until the moment we went to pick up the ashes casket. A big thank you to Yvonne and Pauline from us!

Can’t thank Yvonne enough for organising Frank’s funeral in such a professional and compasionate way. Yvonne made sure everything was exactly how we wanted it to be and due to Yvonne being a member of the parish, the day ran smoothly. Many thanks, the Pickup family.

Would just like to thank Gemma Kennedy for her true professionalism, dignity and from the heart experience. Gemma dealt with all our needs with our late mother in law, who had to be repatriated from overseas. Every step of the way, she was there for us, keeping the family up to date with everything. I can not thank her enough, I feel I have a friend for life, thank you, & on behalf of all the family who truly thought you did amazing, a true professional.

We could not recommend the team at Blackley enough. The care and consideration was above and beyond. Gemma showed such care and empathy and we would not have navigate this difficult time without her.

As a florist we deliver flowers to lots of funeral directors. The young woman I think her name was Gemma who I communicated With and met the morning we delivered the flowers was lovely. I was greeted and was also helped with the flowers and she Even helped with the set up. From start to finish she was so accommodating. The cleanliness as well was pristine and I’ve delivered lots of flowers over the years. I don’t really deliver as I have delivery drivers but they were delivering other funeral flowers. I had the pleasure of delivering these flowers. My customer was also impressed with the service they received . Highly recommended by me 😊👏👏👏

Disgusting service. Called at 7am to inform them of a family death, they said to call back as soon as we were ready for them to collect her and they would be there within the hour. Spent hours from 9am trying to get through for them to collect my mother in law, nobody answered the phone or called us back after we left several messages. Finally after 1pm, they returned the call. They launched into telling us that they weren't the original Michael Kennedy team, that they had bought the company and kept the name. We didn't care at this point, just wanted mum collected! We asked if they could come for her, they said thecouldn't promise anything! It's July and it's hot, what exactly were we supposed to do?? They absolutely did not want our business and volunteered the number for the original Michael Kennedy. As a point of interest, we called the real Michael Kennedy and they collected mum within 45 minutes and were extremely professional. So, if I were you, I'd avoid this place like the plague. Unprofessional, disrespectful, bitten off more than they can chew.
