Here for you and yours
We are an independent family owned and run business covering Northwich and surrounding areas. Three generations of our family have served our local community for over 60 years. We're available to help anytime, every day without exception.
How it began
George Bell continued his father's funeral business established in 1910 and was a great character of Northwich. He seemed to know everyone directly or indirectly and built up the most successful business in the area. He and Barri Dodgson from Knutsford became friends through business and helped each other when needed. George's children had chosen to follow different professions and so when it became time to retire, he asked Barri to buy the business. George had had offers from many larger firms but wanted Barri to take over and continue to run things the way it should. George and Barri worked together for 2 years until George's retirement in 1984. It was then that Barri bought and renovated the old Octel laboratory a few doors down in Lostock Green. Greenacre Funeral Home was the new headquarters of George Bell Funeral Service and has been our home ever since. Barri, his wife Ann and their son Damian have run the business since, building on George's good reputation of a professional service with a personal touch.
Taking care of the community at a time of need
All of our staff live in our community and as such it matters that we provide the best service for families who very often know us as friends and relatives. We spend time with clients helping them to understand options and ultimately decide the most appropriate way forward. It's a privilege to continue serving returning families throughout the generations and humbling when we're personally requested.
