Agápe Funeral Service in Rossendale are a fully independent firm of family-run funeral directors, providing funeral services to families across the North West of England including Altrincham, Stockport and Liverpool alongside our own local community. We take the time to look after your loved ones as if they were our own; “Agápe” translates as “unconditional love” and we have made that our ethos throughout everything we do. We offer a fully professional and personal service and ensure that all of our funeral arrangements are bespoke and specific to the deceased individual and the needs of their family and loved ones, rather than being based on a particular funeral package. With over 22 years of service in care and funeral services between us, husband and wife team Sharon and Darren run Agápe Funeral Service with our son Nathaniel and we’re each passionate about looking after families while striving to make the worst of days a better day, enabling families to come away with a smile while focussing on the positives of their loved ones. Agápe Funeral Service offer bespoke funeral services that are approximately 20-30% more cost effective to our customers, as we firmly believe in putting people before profit. We can happily visit you to make the arrangements in the comfort of your own home at no extra cost or you are welcome to visit us at our intimate Forget Me Not chapel of rest and discuss your requirements there. We can also handle all of the legal paperwork on your behalf as we know that this can be an added stress when you’re dealing with the emotional difficulties of bereavement and consoling fellow family members and loved ones. As the funeral industry changes and evolves, we strive to continually improve and develop our funeral service to ensure that it is consistently of the very highest standard.
“Second to none personal service. Sharon and Darren made the funeral for our son very special,and made an extremely difficult time easier to bare. Truly compassionate and helpful in every way.Sadly,we all have to deal with bereavements at some point in our lives and its essential we get the right directors;ones who are concerned genuinely about giving more.Cant recommend highly enough.Agape should be first choice for anyone requiring funeral directors who really care.”
“I can't recommend Sharon and Darren enough, they truly did go the extra mile to make my brothers day special. Every detail was so personal and tailored exactly to justin. It was everything we wanted and lots more. Really refreshing to meet people who truly care about what they do. It made it so much easier for us, knowing that justin was in good hands. It wasn't like we were dealing with a funeral company, but rather planning a celebration of life with friends, which made a terrible time much easier for the whole family. Very professional, very compassionate and so supportive throughout the planning and the day itself. Thank you so much xxxx”
“Agape Funeral Service excelled themselves in the care and advice they gave us for our dear brother Mac. They worked around our wishes guiding us through what can be a very difficult process. They worked hard to make sure the arrangements were ones that we were happy and comfortable with. A very personalised approach.... so different from the usual traditional schedule of most funeral services.They helped us design our own itinerary that helped so much in making our good bye to Mac less painful.”
