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.

My Mum was looked after by Andrea Lancaster and we were all extremely impressed with her warm, friendly and professional approach. I believe that my Mum was treated with respect and dignity and Andrea accommodated all of our wishes. My Dad was so impressed with her that he took out his own funeral plan with her too. Thank you for making a horrendously difficult time manageable. We are very grateful to her and the team.

We would like to thank Gemma and team for the considerate, caring and helpful way they saw us through such an awful time. Gemma goes above and beyond and her compassion is exemplary. We would like her to know how much we appreciated everything she did to help us cope with the passing of our Mum. Thank you so much Cath and Sandra

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.

Absolutely fantastic funeral home! They took care of my partner who passed and I couldn't have asked for a more professional company. After visiting a couple of funeral services in the area, Andreas' genuinely caring attotude and care for my partner made me feel that they would be the best people to care for him, she made mine and his family's last memories of his care, good memories. I would recommend Michael Kennedys to anyone.
