About Michael Kennedy Funeral Services
Michael Kennedy Funderal Services has been serving the Greater Manchester communities of Alkrington, Blackley, Broughton, Charlestown, Cheetham Hill, Collyhurst, Failsworth, Harpurhey, Middleton, Moston, New Moston and Openshaw.
The teams at our Blackley and Collyhurst funeral homes will provide advice at every stage of the funeral planning process, and will arrange an individual and unique funeral to help you celebrate the life of your loved one.
Here at Michael Kennedy Funeral Services we also offer an affordable prepaid funeral plan, Choice, so that you can arrange and pay for a funeral in advance. This will protect your family from rising costs and remove uncertainty about your wishes.
If you would like to talk to us about planning a funeral, or our Choice plan, please come and see us in any of our funeral homes, or if you’d rather we can arrange a home visit. We’re also available 24 hours a day on the phone so if you need anything please don’t hesitate to call your local funeral home.
