Compassionate funerals in St. Helens

F.W. Marsh arrange funerals and memorials in St. Helens and across Merseyside. If you’re in need of an experienced funeral director, contact us today for a comprehensive and compassionate service.

What we can do

We can guide you through the process of arranging a funeral after the death of a loved one. Our services include:

  • Traditional funeral services
  • Eco-friendly and woodland burials
  • Coordination of all the things that need to be done when someone dies
  • Advice on probate and related matters

Traditional services

Whether a Requiem Mass, an Anglican Church service or an alternative denominational service, we can guide you in preparing a religious ceremony in memory of the deceased. Our strong and long-established relationships with the Roman Catholic and Anglican Church mean we are well placed to advise and guide you in organising an appropriate service.

Woodland burials

Woodland burial grounds have become more established in recent years, to offer a more natural setting for burial. Once the coffin is interred either a tree is planted in place of a headstone or the burial ground is left with no marker allowing the natural contours of the landscape to remain intact. We offer coffins constructed from willow, sea grass and wicker or even cardboard to provide an environmentally friendly alternative to the more traditional timber construction.

Dear FW Marsh

Its hard to believe its two months since dads passing. A traumatic, whirlwind of emotions alongside so much organisation

and official things to sort out.

I just wanted to write and say there is absolutely no way I could have coped without all your kind, compassionate, patient, professional, help to guide me through the process.

Thank you so much, I hope this gift helps you remember, even on your busiest days how much all your hard work means to the grieving families.

Please also pass on our sincerest thanks to all your hard working colleagues and congratulate them all for the high level of service they provide.

All The Very Best & Kindest Regards

Would just like to say Thank You all for all the help you gave when we were organizing my dads funeral. Special thanks for listening to my worries and putting my mind at ease.

Also Thank You for looking after dad in a kind caring and dignified way and reassuring me his socks would be put on inside out so they didn’t rub his feet.
