Established for over 100 years

Knox & Son Ltd independent family funeral directors have been established in Warrington for over 100 years, and we still occupy the same premises on Orford Road, that we started out in all those years ago.

Through the generations we have learnt to adapt our services to suit the families of today whilst still retaining our traditional values and beliefs.

A unique and bespoke funeral service

Managing Director Elizabeth Greenwood, following in the footsteps of her parents, Jim and Betty Mercer, strives to provide a unique and bespoke funeral to each family that requires our services.

“No two funerals are the same, families today have a much greater input into the service of their loved ones and we are very proud that we can provide such a vast range of options to make their loved one’s funeral service truly unique”
