Unfortunately my father past away rather suddenly and since me and my family live rather close to signatures offices we thought we’d call in and i’m glad we did after our first meeting with both Hannah and Dave we could tell we were in good hands and decide to use them. From the first meeting till after the funeral the support they both offered was amazing weather it was answering questions, explaining how everthing was going to happen in detail arranging flowers filling out paperwork right down to just being able to just call in if we needed a chat. Nothing was to much trouble id have no problem recommending them sure you need to use such a service. Once again hannah and Dave thank you.
Hannah and David at Signature Funerals are wonderful funeral directors, they have a naturally calm and caring way about them and together with their beautiful relaxing premises, make you feel confident that your loved one will be looked after with great care. Their personal approach to creating a funeral can make such a difference to grieving families.
I can’t recommend this company enough. Hannah and David are lovely and will listen and do anything for you. We had loads of problems before I was told about Signature Funerals and Hannah and David sorted everything out for us and we had a very small but beautiful funeral for my mum. Please go to Signature Funerals first you will be so pleased you did.
I cannot recommend this Funeral Home highly enough, David and Hannah are warm and caring people, whom genuinely want to help at a time of greatest need. Signature Funerals made one of the most difficult times in our families life (the passing of our Mother Joyce) as painless as it could be under the circumstances. No request was too big or too small, and their commitment to make themselves available whenever they could, was admirable. Thanks you so much for the help you gave us, for being there caring, listening and always putting us first. We will be forever grateful, John Millen, Sheralie, Wendy, Debby, Maria and Alex Callaghan.
I can not praise highly enough the service we received from signature funerals at a time that was very sad and stressful due to the sudden loss of our dad.. They were available 24/7.. they gave us time and they gave us quiet empathy and space.. there was no pressure to make decisions but they gave us helpful suggestions.. As a result the celebration of our dad’s life went smoothly with great dignity and to time and schedule.. we felt valued as individuals, and we felt great respect was offered to our dear dad!
Our family would like to thank Hannah and David for their professionalism and the love and care they have shown us during this difficult time. We were very grateful for their guidance over the last couple of weeks in organizing everything for our brothers funeral. They have been with us every step of the way and even though there was a little hiccup on day, it couldn’t have gone any better. Thank you both so much and Thank you very much for the flowers which are beautiful,
I cannot recommend Signature highly enough. We had to organise a colleague’s funeral who died suddenly and with no family able to make the arrangements. They were tremendous making all the arrangements including booking the ceremony, finding a celebrant, organising flowers and so many other little touches that it is hard to mention them all. Colleagues were terribly upset by the death of a close friend and Signature were so sensitive to all our needs. Knowing Hannah and David had everything in hand helped us all no end. We knew we were in capable hands and nothing was too much trouble. The funeral was an uplifting celebration of our colleague’s life and that was thanks to all the effort and hard work invested by Signature. They were tremendous. I give them a 100% recommendation them for their organisation and customer service.
I cannot express my gratitude to Hannah, Dave and Marcia at what has been the most difficult time of my life. At only 29 years old my wonderful husband Richard was taken away from us. The team at Signature handled everything throughout the journey from his passing through to the funeral with the upmost respect. Nothing was too much trouble. Richard had endless visitors including beers with the lads in the chapel of rest. All of our requests were accommodated with ease. The little touches were taken care of from his favourite candles when we came to visit to his favourite music playing in the background. I really felt like they treated Richard as one of their own family during his stay there and that gave me great comfort. Truly thank you for everything
I can’t emphasise enough how amazing Hannah was when my uncle passed away suddenly in February. She visited the house a couple of days later as we lived 40 minutes away and my Aunty didn’t feel up to travelling. She spent time with us and we didn’t feel rushed. She gave the whole experience a personal touch and nothing was too much trouble. She allowed us to contact her via text message to ask all sorts of random questions as the circumstances were difficult as it involved repatriation which she arranged with ease. It was made all the more difficult with the events abroad and flights being cancelled but nothing was too much trouble for Hannah and she allowed the family to visit my uncle various times as he was at the home for an extended period. She even arranged a small service in the funeral parlour before the flight to say goodbye. Everything from start to finishwas perfect and we could not have wished for a better experience under the unusual circumstances.
Signature funerals helped with a difficult time in which a colleague with no family sadly passed away suddenly. They went out of their way to meet with his colleagues from work to arrange a funeral and despite the awfully sad circumstances, made sure he had a perfect send off which was conducted with respect and lots of love.
Many thanks to these wonderful people, Hanna and David for supporting myself and my children through the most difficult thing that has ever happened in our lives . My beloved husband and children’s father died very unexpectedly and from the outset we had decided we did not want a conventional funeral . Nothing at all was too much trouble at all , David and Hanna guided us through the whole funeral without taking over and let us follow through with our own ideas . We wanted to have our loved one home before his final journey and this was no problem either . We visited every day to see him in the chapel of rest at various times with lots of different family members and friends with no issues . If your looking to have a funeral and want an approach that is unique Signature Funerals are the ones to choose , they guide you through the process they are not money making and do not sell you what you do not require , look outside of the big organisations and give a fabulous small business a chance , they deserve it . And finally my husband looked lovely and as if he was asleep when we visited him , this helped both our children as they were happy to visit their dad . Thanks again absolutely amazing people .
Just want to give a special mention to Hannah and David at Signature funerals in Ramsbottom. I sadly lost my father recently and his funeral was today. I have to say the service, care and respect that Signature gave us and the way they looked after him was second to none. They are most lovely people to deal with at a difficult time and if anyone is unfortunate to lose a loved one I couldn’t speak highly of these guys. Thanks so much for the way Signature Funerals gave a respectful, dedicated and amazing send off to my Dad.
I honestly cannot recommend Signature enough, they are fabulous! Six years ago we used a large corporate company in the planning of my grandads funeral and I decided that for my dad who died in October, I didn’t want that for him. I wanted to choose somewhere local, bespoke and creative – Signature gave me all of that and more. From the first meeting with Hannah, I knew she would be perfect for my dads ‘send off’ – her ethos is fantastic. We wanted something a little different – Humanist ceremony followed by a Catholic burial in Bury and a wake at the local pub. I didn’t want a ‘big traditional funeral’ – I wanted the day to be all about my dad and Hannah and Marcia couldn’t have worked any harder to ensure this happened. From the Land Rover hearse (which was outstanding!!) to the flowers by Marcia (my personal favourite – the ones around the wooden handles of the coffin!), small details such as the online Just Giving page and physical donation box (and having enough umbrellas – just in case!), Steve – the PERFECT Funeral Director who was professional and yet appropriately lovely and funny in his navy and grey suit – no boring black and Alan who held the brilliant Humanist ceremony (and helping us organise the entry/exit music too!). They went all the way to the Bishop to find us a local priest who was happy to perform the burial – nothing was too much trouble for them! Their final touch – a beautiful ‘grave marker’. Ladies, it was an absolute pleasure at such a horrendous time and I cannot thank you enough x
Signature were so professional and yet very personable. I would definitely recommend their services as they go the extra mile and they do so with such genuine care for the person you have lost and also the people left behind, Thank you so much for making the funeral such a lovely testimony to a dear Friend.
I can’t thank Hannah enough for the wonderful service that both she and her celebrant, Helen, provided to us on the sudden passing away of a much loved colleague. Everything was handled with a high level of professionalism and compassion. We had meetings with colleagues and friends at our workplace, where all were encouraged to give their input and stories of many years experiences of our dear “Gordy”. Photo’s were given to provide a lovely order of service, and flowers were organised by Hannah at our request. We wanted a celebration of Gordy’s life, as he was a larger than life person who always made people happy just by being around. This was made possible by Hannah, Helen & their team at Signature Funerals. Thanks to them all, it couldn’t have been a better send off.
Thankfully planning for the passing of a loved one doesn’t happen very often, but when that time comes it can be unbelievably overwhelming, and there is no bigger decision than who will be trusted with the funeral arrangements and most importantly caring for your loved one after life. This was our position over Christmas, we knew my Nan was coming to the end of her life and the inevitable question arose around what ware we going to do when the time comes. Quite simply we hadn’t allowed ourselves to think about it. We contacted Hannah and David at Signature Funerals and are so glad we did, within a day of making contact we were sat in their beautiful office discussing next steps. There was no hard sell, just coffee, biscuits and a practical yet heartfelt discussion about what has to happen and what they could offer. We knew immediately that we wanted Signature funerals with us at such a critical time. Merely 48 hours later at tea-time on the Friday before Christmas we had to make the call and they were immediately available, taking care of absolutely everything. Signature listen to you and have the knowledge and ability to provide a service completely bespoke to your needs which they certainly achieved for us. Their warmth, care and professionalism really helped during a difficult time especially over Christmas. There were many subtle personal touches along the way that made us feel special, valued and supported. The care given to my Nan and our family following her death was first class and I cannot thank Hannah and David enough for everything they have done, we got everything we wanted and more. I would recommend Signature to anyone. Thank you so much.
Hannah and her team did a lovely funeral for our work-colleague. They gave the best care and attention at all times. Very professional team, they go above and beyond with their service. I would highly recommend Signature Funerals because of Hannah attention to the detail. Thank you very much to Hannah.
We recently lost our son following a long illness. From the first time we stepped through the door of Signature Funerals, we knew that we had chosen the right Funeral Director for our family. The warmth of welcome and empathetic approach of Hannah and Marcia made a very distressing situation into something we could cope with. They carefully guided us through the steps we had to take, listened carefully to our wishes, making thoughtful suggestions along the way, and introduced us to Helen Simpson, Celebrant, who was excellent. They took all the stress of practical arrangements away, which gave us the time and mental energy we needed to concentrate on the celebration of our son’s life. Thank you ,Hannah and Marcia, for leaving us with memories of an emotional, uplifting, special day that we will always cherish.
Hannah and her team provided an exceptional service for a friend of mine who passed away. Nothing was too much trouble, and they bent over backwards to help us organise a perfect send off for a dear friend. Their attention to detail and little touches will never be forgotten and I would not hesitate to recommend them. 5 stars!
When my husband passed away earlier this year, I connected Signature Funerals to take care of his funeral,, Hannah and Marcia from the start we’re very professional and caring, they went above and beyond to make it a special day for us and Mick. I would recommend them highly
Aa family we truly can’t thank Hannah, Marcia and the team enough! Your compassion, professionalism and thoughtfulness has been second to none. Words can’t express our gratitude for the help and understanding during such a difficult time. You have been so very thoughtful throughout and treated my Nana with so much love, care and dignity. It’s been an absolute pleasure dealing with you. We will never forget the attention to detail, the little personal touches you added and your warmth towards us as a family. You really have created such a wonderful business, it takes truly special people to do what you do and you do it in such a beautiful way. From the bottom of our hearts thank you. Xx
When by brother passed away at the end of last year, we had some very specific requirements around what we did and didn’t want from a funeral. From the first time we spoke to Hannah and all the way through the process, the people at Signature were warm, friendly and supportive. Nothing was too much trouble and they helped us arrange an incredibly memorable and uplifting woodland burial. Every detail was considered and thoughtful and we couldn’t have asked for a better service in what were incredibly tough times for the family. I would recommend Signature to anyone looking for an impeccable, personalised service. In an increasingly “out of date” funeral industry – Signature are a breath of fresh air.
I have worked with Signature Funerals on many occasions as a Celebrant, delivering the funeral service for the family at the request of Marcia. The funeral home is an exceptionally warm, welcoming and comforting environment to either arrange a funeral, spend time with your loved one in their calm chapel of rest, or even as a location to hold a service. Marcia, Simon and the team take exceptional pride in looking after anyone who is brought into their care, from the moment they arrive until the day they leave. I would have no hesitation in recommending Signature Funerals for the high standard of professional service you will receive as well as the personal care that is delivered throughout.
“You have such a brilliant approach to the whole event of dying. We are, as a society, not very good at dealing with death but you are trailblazing in enabling people to think differently and probably more meaningfully about how we say goodbye and pay our respects”
“The kindness, warmth, professionalism and skill you have all shown throughout is utterly astonishing. It has felt as though you have had your arms around us all from the very minute we met”
“The ambience you both create of relaxed and informality unlike the black suit sombre atmosphere as shown by other established undertakers, made my distress more bearable”
“We really appreciated Hannah being with us from start to finish and your complete hands-on approach. You all made really good connections with us all and followed through with every detail we asked for”
“Thank you for the extreme kindness you showed to me and my family at such a terrible time. You performed the service with such dignity and compassion”
“We cant even put into words how amazing you have all been and how much easier the process felt with you all by our sides every step of the way. We will never forget the kindness, the care and the support in every little detail that you gave to all of us”
“You gave him the send off our Dad deserved and it was perfect. We will never forget it”
“I am sure you guys have heard it a thousand or more times but you really are amazing. From the very first phone call with Marcia we knew how amazing Signature Funerals was going to be. Your compassion and support in dreadful circumstances made each of us feel better about the situation”
“Thank you for all your help and understanding at the most difficult time imaginable. Your respectful, thoughtful professionalism throughout the whole arrangements was above and beyond expectation. Words cannot thank you enough.”
“From start to finish your professionalism and empathy were second to none. The attention to detail allowed the day to happen with ease and no worries. You treated Dad and us with great dignity.”
“From the first meeting, you both embraced myself and my family (my late mother included) like a big hug. You led a very difficult and emotional time down an easy pathway.”
“There are numerous superlatives that could be used to describe Signature Funeral’s bespoke service, but I guess ‘compassionate and professional’ would be two that you would appreciate as that sums up what a successful business in your field strives for.”
“Thank you for your professionalism and kindness over the past few weeks, I hope I never have to but I could not recommend you highly enough.”
“I cannot thank you both enough for the way that you looked after Mum….. Both of you made Mum’s funeral seamless. I wanted it all to be a positive experience cherishing Mum and her memory and you helped me more than you know. I shall be forever grateful. Anyone who chooses Signature Funeral is in very safe hands”
