Our Birkenhead Funeral Directors

About our Birkenhead funeral home

Before we were Williams & Bell, we were Alex Taylor Funeral Directors in Birkenhead, serving our local community and the Wirral with uncompromising compassion, and had been since 1936. We have experience conducting a variety of funerals from religious ceremonies to woodland burials to bright celebrations of life. Because we understand the importance of getting everything right when planning a farewell, our team are flexible and we will cater to your wishes. Caring for you and your family is our highest priority, which is why our Birkenhead funeral home is designed to make you feel relaxed and comfortable during your visit.

Meet our team

Our funeral directors in Birkenhead understand that no two people are the same and funerals should be no different. Our compassionate team are here to ensure your loved one receives a personal service which is unique to them and reflects the life they lived. You can tailor each aspect of the day, including vehicles, cortege route, music or anything else that will make the day special and personal.

From the moment you first reach out to us, we are here for you. So please give us a call as soon as you need to speak to someone.

Our services

With three packages available, we will be able to arrange the funeral you have in mind for your loved one.

If you’re looking for a traditional or contemporary funeral with a service, you should consider our Attended Funeral. If you want us to arrange a simple cremation without mourners present, our Unattended Funeral may better suit your needs.
