The Hodgson Family says...

No amount of superlatives adequately express our appreciation of the funeral arrangements provided by Lilian Hough and her team.They are simply the best and provide a five star service.
Lilian takes great pride in delivering a caring, personalised and professional service. She provides clear leadership and sets high standards for her whole team. Her years of experience and expertise shone through at every stage of our making the arrangements for our mother’s cremation.
On very first contact she establishes immediate rapport, empathy and your confidence. For us this was done at a time of sudden loss, at a distance and amidst the global pandemic. Arrangements during lock-downs required special consideration. Lilian was able to advise on every aspect and provided everything to exacting high standards. She additionally offered exceptional value for money and ensured every detail we had discussed was delivered on the day. This included arranging beautiful flowers, professionally printed service sheets and our very personal choices for the eulogy and the music played at the service.
A year on, we have recently finally interred our mother’s ashes in our family grave. This was again arranged through Lilian to the same high standards with dignity and sensitivity. She even anticipated the need to organise wheelchair access by providing boarding to the graveside at the cemetery.
We cannot praise and her, Lee and their team too highly. She will always be our first choice if ever needed again. She is a credit to her profession.




Paula Massey says...

Lilian and her staff were nothing short of amazing following the sad loss of our Mum. Nothing was too much trouble, her care and compassion shone through and we felt loved. We are truly grateful. Many thanks, Paula

Gina Ebbrell says...

Lillian Hough has been the most caring compassionate funeral director that I know. She Dealt with my own Mums funeral in 2011 and from then on I wouldn't use anyone else.
we sadly in the last year have lost both my father in law and mother in law, most recently on the 16th June was my mother in law.
as usual Lillian and her staff were absolutely brilliant, and looked after us compassionately and treated my mother in law with dignity and respect.
I can't thank Lillian and her team enough for what she has done for us.
I would always recommend her.
Thank you Lillian x

Keren Cummings says...

We requested the Funeral Services of Lillian Hough when our appointed Funeral Director failed to meet their professional and ethical responsibilities.
At the point of my initial contact with Lillian I was extremely distressed but from that initial conversation she reassured me and said “I will make sure your mum gets the Funeral she deserves” Without going into the details surrounding the previous funeral director I can only say that is exactly what I needed to hear and all I ever wanted.
From that point on I was kept up to date with everything that was happening and when something was scheduled to take place it did. Lillian is a very caring person and I really benefitted from that care and support, she certainly went a long way in restoring my faith after my initial experiences.
Lillian Hough Funeral Services is totally professional and operates to very high standards. From your first point of contact you are given a warm welcome and provided with the confidence that your loved one is in good hands. My mum was treated with the utmost dignity and respect. Lillian’s attention to detail is second to none and she takes the time to really understand what it is you want and supports you all the way in getting it.
On the day of my mums funeral I was totally confident that everything would go to plan and that was all down to the individualised service that Lillian provides. The care and support myself and my wife had experienced was extended to my wider family and everyone commented on Lillian’s professionalism and attention to detail on the day.
I cannot recommend Lillian Hough’s Funeral Service enough and I cannot thank Lillian enough for everything she did for me and my family but most importantly for giving my mum what she initially promised and that was “the funeral she deserved”
With the highest of regard and recommendation

Lillian was recommended to us when my mum Pauline passed away 5 weeks ok.she was professional,polite and always respectful. Lillian helped us and advised on everything we asked her. Such a lovely caring lady who gave me lots of hugs when i needed them,it’s been such an emotional time with lots of tears and heartache. On the day of my mums funeral she was brilliant. I would highly recommend her to anybody who asked me! Thank you Lillian for everything you did for us as a family and how you treated us in our time of grief.

My Dad



Donna Whelan says...

As a family, we couldn't have asked for a more compassionate, efficient, trustworthy and personal service than Lillian Hough provided. Thank goodness for the recommendation to contact Lillian. At such a heart-breaking and emotional time, Lillian advised and guided us though absolutely everything to make sure Dad's funeral was perfectly fitting for the wonderful man he was. Lillian was friendly, offered a 24 hour service and was full of advice and re-assurance whenever I needed it. With all the personal pain experienced during this very said time, Lillian took away all the organisation pain. Thank you Lillian.

Fathers funeral



Danny says...

Lillian came to us highly recommended and I can say Lillian exceeded all our expectations of the service she gave to us , she was kind caring and very approachable and understanding , to us it was if Lillian was there as a friend to help us through the process and decisions we had to make and not there as a business woman , everybody that came to my dad's funeral complemented on how good and professional Lillian was .

Tony Jacklin says...

What a really first class service.Lillian is one of the most caring ladies I know,nothing is too much trouble for her.
When my wife passed away I went to Lillian to sort out the funeral and everything was sorted out for me and I had nothing to worry about,Lillian is very professional in what she does and the funeral was well organised from start to finish
Thanks a lot Lillian for being there for us when we needed you
I would have no hesitation in recommending Lillian Hough to any one who needs a funeral organising

Mrs judith hirst says...

We can't thank Lilian enough she does things beyond her roll in my opinion Lilian is the best funeral service around




Matthew says...

Handled all the arrangements after the sudden suicide of my mother last year. She was excellent and helped us all through a very difficult time. I found Lillian herself to be caring, thoughtful and very accommodating for all the family. Without question, Lillian and her team went above and beyond for us, can't thank them enough for all their help.

My mums funeral



Sara Smith says...

I can't thank Lilian & her team enough. Went above and beyond for my family & I. Professional & caring throughout. Thankyou Lilian Sara Smith & family

Brilliant Service



Celia Horan says...

Lillian Hough provides an excellent service and takes care of your loved ones. My mum died over Christmas and Lillian was the first person I thought of as a funeral director. Lillian was the funeral director for my deceased brother and my sister-in-law's parents also. She is very caring, honest, listens and gives advice when needed. She is very supportive. Her staff are also very helpful and professional.
I highly recommend Lillian Hough.

Sheila Taylor says...

I cannot praise Lillian and her staff enough. When my Dad passed away, Lillian seemed to know instinctively what we as a family required. At such a sad time, Lillian took away the strain from us and handled all necessary details perfectly.
We found Lillian and her staff compassionate, efficient and extremely professional.

Lillian hough



Kelly haywood says...

My family & I chose Lillian Hough on a recommendation to conduct my Mums funeral.I was not dissspointed,from the first meeting Lillian made everything so much clearer & easier for us all.
Compassion, professionalism & empathy is in Lillian & all her staff.I felt easy leaving my Mum in Lillian\\\'s care, knowing she was in safe hands.Thank you to Lillian & all her staff.

Keith Andrew says...

We recently used Lilian Hough funeral directors when my father passed away. Lilian was caring and talked us through every step of the process. The service was beautiful, the coffin bearers were respectful and throughout the whole process, money was the last thing that Lilian was concerned about. I would thoroughly recommend her funeral services.

Marian & Paul Lynch says...

We have used Lillian Hough on two occasions, the most recent being in July this year. On both occasions we received an excellent service in all aspects. Throughout the process Lillian showed kindness, empathy and compassion in guiding the family through the most difficult of times. We cannot praise her and her team highly enough and would not hesitate in recommending her. Marian & Paul Lynch.

Mrs Janet Ashworth says...

Once again Lillian and her team did us proud. My mother was sent off in style as was my father previously. This lady goes above and beyond what is expected. She has empathy and obviously cares about her work. I cannot recommend her highly enough. Thank you Lillian you made a hard day bearable for me and my family.

Holland f says...

I have used this lady twice the service that I got was first class caring and sincere from Mrs hough and all her staff . On both sad occasions . First time was twelve years ago . And sadly had to use again in May last year for my dear mum . The service I received had not changed first class again . One of the best.




Deborah Lee says...

Lillian was fantastic for me and my family, when my mum passed in march this year.
(Teresa Alma Sproson)
She took the pressure off us, and helped us in everyway possible.
I would highly recommend her services.
Thank you again Lillian.

The Leach Family says...

Several years ago we were very pleased with the way Lillian Hough carried out the arrangements for our dads funeral, so recently when our mother passed away, we contacted her again to arrange the funeral. She was very caring, sympathetic and efficient with all the details of the funeral carried out exactly as we wished and nothing was too much trouble. We have no hesitation in recommending her services to anyone wishing to appoint a funeral director.

Kelly & Tina leech says...

Lillian has done two family funerals and I have to strongly recommend her to any one she goes the extra length to make your sad times that bit easier , she will do anything and every thing she can to help truly a amazing woman and a amazing service she provides . A******




Jordan leech says...

Eileen & Kevin Baker (Timezone) says...

I was shocked to be told that Lillian Hough in Dukinfield had been badly insulted and publicly humiliated on here by someone. With the intent of disgracing her name and ruining her business. Apparently the complainant stated that she was totally in the wrong job and not suited to her profession. Well that person can't possibly be talking about the same Lillian Hough I know, who I might add is very highly respected amongst all my family and friends... I can truly say and state out loud in this MY PERSONAL POST that Lillian Hough is the most kindest, caring, thoughtful and considerate lady that I have ever had the privilege of meeting. We lost our precious daughter tragically at the age of 28yrs old. Our whole world as u can imagine crashed down all around us. We chose Lillian Hough for her funeral and upon our first time of meeting to discuss all the arrangements for our daughter's funeral, Lillian was nothing other than kind and helpful to us. She certainly did show her inner self truthful feelings towards us and supported our every wish and carried it through without any hesitation at all. I myself got into a state and wanted to ask her question after question and expected to be looked in the eye and be told the truth whether I would like it or not and that's what she really did. She laid things on the line and told it as it was and it wasn't rude or blunt and never once refused anything I asked. I couldn't have asked for a more understanding person as Lillian was. She's a wonderful lady. Nothing is too much trouble for her even if she has to go out of her way to please and help to give you the satisfaction and comfort needed at the time of your loss. She is completely and utterly devoted to her job and is an outstanding professional at everything that her job requires. How any one person could possibly say the complete opposite of her I can't and never will be able to understand. Thank you Lillian.

Robert says...

Whilst experiencing the sudden loss of our beautiful mother, myself and my siblings we're at loose ends and the thought of arranging her funeral was very daunting. I'm a firm believer of word of mouth being the best form of advertisement, and thankfully all the encouraging words we heard on Lillians behalf were to be only a snippet to this ladies being. Her loving, mothering nature were obvious within 10 seconds of our introduction and her careful, genuine professionalism allowed my family to concentrate on what we were coming to terms with and eliminate the reality of what we had to organise. We literally just had to confirm the basic personal touches required for the day and Lillian and her team continued to do what come natural to them. My personal favourite characteristic Lillian is blessed with is her patience. We were able to organise and visit at short notice and was never once under the illusion that we might be out staying our welcome, which re iterates Lillians service, allow Lillian to care for and organise your loved ones during this heart breaking time, and you concentrate on what is really important and mourn the loss. No need for extra stresses. It appears to me rival companies will stoop as low as criticising Lillians dedication on a page like this. Word of mouth is the best form of advertisement. Lillian is a breath of fresh air and a gift waiting to be unwrapped. Thank you with all my heart .

Susan corbett says...

We as a family have used Lillian for many years,for my father,mother and most recently for my Auntie who was a very special lady to us all. I would not have entrusted her into anyone else's care but Lillian's from the first telephone call I made until my aunties funeral day Lillian was extremely caring respectful and carried out all of our wishes with dignity as always. I am deeply upset to read negative things said about Lillian as we as a family hold Lillian and her team in the highest esteem.






Elaine Hamer says...

Lillian was chosen by my family to assist with Dads funeral, I live in Australia and was delighted with who they chose. We are an extremely large family eight adult children in all and I am sure we all wanted to make sure the service we gave Dad was special , and it was !! Lillian was Amazing , she covered everything from the process and gave advice on practical issues too. My mum Barbara decided on a two horse carriage with Red plumes , United colours of course , apparently they had never been asked for red before , we was advised that if it was raining it might not be possible for the horses to perform for safety reasons. So it was fitting that on the day we had no rain, Dads send off was beautiful, his coffin looked lovely in the carriage, our Mum was delighted at how lovely the flowers was and Dad was given the best send off , all the family was impressed at how dignified it was and the lovely hug Lillian gave mum meant a lot to us all. Thankyou , you made a very traumatic day go smoothly , forever grateful Elaine

Mr Massey says...

An all-round excellent service which was professional, caring, unrushed, informative and accommodating, with good advice that made it a perfect way to give final respects to a dearly loved family member.
Special requests, such as specific plume colour for the horses, were arranged at short notice with diligence and compassion.
I would highly recommend them.

My Dads funeral



Ann-marie Stocks says...

I am so glad I choose Lillian and her team to do my Dads funeral, from the minute I walked in the room to discuss what we wanted she was so welcoming. She talked us through the whole process from what kind of service to cars or horse and cart, flowers, songs ect very reassuring lovely gave us hugs wonderful lady no rush for payment overall fantastic service the only company I would recommend, My Dad funeral was on the 10/3/16 we could not have give my Dad (Albert) a better send off. All I can say is thank you from the bottom of my heart Lillian and the rest her the team made the day more bearable many thanks xxxx

A wonderful Lady



Jan Wilson says...

Paula Massey says...

Lilian provided an exceptional service, she filled us with confidrnce and supported us through a difficult time with kindness and sincerity. We believe that no one could provide a better service and we would definately reccomend her. Many Thanks Lilian




susan says...

its now getting silly old friends she is awfull

Mrs. Lynn Powell says...

We have used Lillian Houghs services on two occasions. She dealt with the loss of our daughter and showed through this very sad time to be caring and respectful in all aspects of the arrangements
Lillian guided us through what was a very difficult time.Cannot understand the negative comments.

M. calverley says...

Lillian Hough did my Father's funeral several years ago. Initially, she visited myself to proceed with her correlation of relevant parties and to arrange funeral details. Lillian was knowledgeable, resourceful and autonomous, which put me at ease straight away. On a personal level she was empathetic, friendly and respectful. The funeral itself was conducted with sustained perfection, dignity and grace by the whole team. I would recommend Lillian Hough as a Funeral Director to anyone. She is devoted to her work, and maintains a selfless service with humility, compassion and respect.

Thank you



Cannon Carole Marsden says...

As a former vicar in this area I worked with Lillian on several occasions and found her to be professional in every way. Recently on the death of Mum Lillian arranged her funeral. She did a brilliant job and related in a caring, compassionate way to all the generations in our family.
God Bless.




Claire Birbeck says...

Thank you so much to Lillian and all her staff. I could not fault the service we were given. Lillian behaved with compassion, respect, and understanding throughout the whole process. I have no hesitation in recommending her wholeheartedly.

Karen Davies says...

Lillian, a true professional nothing was ever too much trouble. Having met Lillian at my nieces funeral I was impressed with her compassion and professionalism, she was available for us day or night.
I would not hesitate to recommend her to anybody, what a lovely lady, thank you from us all.

First class



Pam bowden says...

From start to finish Liilian was first class, as at a time when you need a shoulder to cry on , and are at your lowest point.
She talked us through the whole process and then guided us along the way, always with her caring understanding sincere nature.
Cant believe she was half the price of other funeral directors for what should be the same service. However I am so very glad we picked Lillian.

I cannot disagree enough with the four mentioned negative reviews.

Kind hearted lady



Philip Mottershead says...

I disagree with the comments above, and can only think that they were lashing out in anger on such a sad day. as Lillian Hough is a kind hearted lady.
As she proved on our very sad day when we lost our daughter she went above and beyond our expectations, and went that extra mile to help ease our pain. We recommend Lillian to all our friends and family.

Lynnette Wakefield says...

I found Lillian Hough to be none of the negative comments above, couldn't be further from the truth. We lost our only daughter aged 23, at that time Lillian was a shoulder to cry on, she helped us get through the hardest time of our lives. She was very caring and considerate and couldn't do enough for us, nothing was too much trouble for her. She helped ease our pain a lot and we consider her a very thoughtful and professional lady. We couldn't of got through it without her. Highly recommended and will always recommend her to friends and family. Keep up the good work Lillian, your the best x

An Amazing Lady.



Pat Pennington says...

I completely disagree with the negative reviews above. They clearly haven't personally dealt with Lillian at all. She has done several close members of my family over the years so when my son sadly died in 2009 I went to her. Her professionalism and dedication is what defines her and makes her a cut above the other funeral directors. The lowest, saddest and darkest period of my life was made that little bit easier by Lillian's compassion. I knew I could rest that bit better knowing one of the most precious things to me was in her care for his last journey. I recommend Lillian to everyone and so do all my family - nobody has ever complained as a result of those recommends and they have always gone back to her for other funerals. Keep up the good work Lillian.




Tracey O'Brien says...

I have sadly lost many family and friends and of all the funerals I have attended I can say with absolute certainty that Lillian's have been the most professional. Two of those funerals were for my grandma and grandad, of course a very hard time for me and my family. A time made a little easier thanks to Lillian. Lillian clearly runs a tight ship which shows in the seamlessness of the funerals but this in no way compromises the compassion shown by Lillian and her staff. From the start of the process right through until the end Lillian exceeded my expectations and proved why she is considered by many, to be the best of the best. I would never go to anyone else as Lillian is the only person I trust to give my loved ones the kindness and respect they deserve in their last days with us. A five star service.

T.Bosomworth says...

Lillian Hough did a funeral for a member if my family and she could not have been more compassionate and understanding, She was brilliant from first meeting her and she really cared throughout our dealings with her.I would recommend her to everyone the service from her was first class and her staff were very skilled in their work.




Laura Stevens says...

Lillian did my step-dad's funeral and she did a lovely job. She guided me in the right direction all the way through it and helped me through everything. I would highly recommend Lillian.

Kerry O'Brien says...

My family have suffered the loss of my Aunty, Grandma, Uncle & Great Incle in the past 15mnths and i can honestly say i couldn't of got through it without Lillian she's brilliant, one of the most caring women you could ever meet. This lady doesnt just do her job she goes beyond that she was there for me and my mum whenever we needed her & i will never forget & always appreciate everything she did for us....i feel like shes part of the family now.....lovely lady. Xx

Julie Glover says...

I totally agree with the other reviewers, this woman is so rude, no compassion whatsoever was shown to the grieving party.




*** says...

Rude, obnoxious, uncaring. Do not use this service.




Diane Williams says...

yesterday i attended my Aunty's funeral organised by Lillian Hough. This woman was rude, cold, gruff & totally uncompassionate & insensitive towards my Aunty's family & all of us in the funeral party.
Disgusting behaviour - she is in the wrong business!
