We Care.

Welcome to S. Wellens & Sons Funeral Directors, taking care of your loved ones. We promise to provide you, your family and your loved one with high-quality care and compassion.

About Us

We are S. Wellens & Sons Funeral Directors in Manchester, and it is an honour to be able to help make things a little easier for families in the community we love. With almost 150 years of experience and you can trust us to make your loved one's farewell special.
Our first funeral home was on Back High Street. We then moved to 54 Long Street, before settling at 121 Long Street in 1920. The funeral home was built, designed and opened in 1920 by Billy Wellens, who was also the Mayor of Middleton and grandson of our founder Abraham Wellens. Since then, the business has grown and we have opened other funeral homes in Blackley, New Moston and Chadderton.
Using our expertise and knowledge we can cater for all types of funerals; whether your preference is a celebration of life, or a traditional or religious funeral, we can help. We will do our utmost to make your loved one's goodbye special. With this in mind, we will tailor your loved one's funeral to make it unique to their life. Back in April 2018, we arranged a funeral at sea for one of our families to give their loved one a fitting farewell.
We have funeral homes across Middleton, Blackley, Chadderton and New Moston. We have made many developments over the years to keep our facilities at the highest standards for those in our care.
