About Us

about us

At John Knowles Funeral Directors, our role is to support you during this difficult time of loss and bereavement. In addition, to allow you to say farewell to your loved-one in a way that reflects your shared values and beliefs. 

John and members of his staff have many years of experience.  Operating from newly-commissioned, tranquil and bespoke premises in Broughton, John and his dedicated, local team will ensure your loved-one is accorded every respect and every attention to detail you would wish.

“From the moment someone is taken into our care to the time of the final farewell, we understand you are entrusting us with a very important responsibility.  Our service is 100% professional, 100% personal.”

We can guide you through the legal requirements and paperwork; choosing a venue plus clergy or celebrant; selecting hymns, music and readings; obituaries, flowers, donations; transport; burial or scattering or interment of the ashes; tokens of remembrance.  You will also have the opportunity to visit, by appointment, your loved-one in one of our Chapels of Rest.

For more information, please refer to our Contact Page and we will be happy to help.
