Welcome To CL Birkett & Son
CL Birkett & Son was founded in 1985 by Mr Cedric Birkett.
David Gresty (Owner) & Paul Birkett (Manager)
C. L. Birkett & Son soon moved from Stretford to 111, Higher Road, Urmston and then more recently, developed a new additional office back in Stretford, at 147 Barton Road.
In 2015, their 30th anniversary, Mr. Birkett decided it was time to take some well-deserved retirement and offered his business to Arthur Gresty Funeral Homes, a family run service established in the 1930s by Mr. Arthur Gresty in Sale Moor. This was a great opportunity for David Gresty (Mr. Arthur Gresty’s Grandson), his family and team to acquire a well-known and respected family concern to complement their existing funeral service.
Paul Birkett (Cedric’s Son) has remained with the company and proudly manages the Stretford and Urmston branches of the business, as well as arranging and conducting funerals for the parent company, Arthur Gresty Funeral Homes throughout Altrincham, Sale, Northenden, Wythenshawe, Stretford, Urmston, Flixton and surrounding areas.
The company remains dedicated to a personal, family orientated and caring service, catering to every personal need at a difficult time, when bereaved families need help and guidance with the required empathy, sensitivity and professionalism.
Arrangements can be made at our offices or at your home; whichever is more convenient to you and your family.
