Our Company was formed over 80 years ago by Mr. Arthur Gresty, in his home village of Sale Moor.
The firm is still family owned and managed by Arthur's Grandson David Gresty BEng(Hons), Dip.FD., MBIE, LMBIFD. The other Directors of the company are Robert Gresty Dip.FD., MBIE, MBIFD and Margaret Gresty (Arthur’s Son and Daughter in Law), Clare Gresty (David’s Wife), Anthony Caffrey, Jill Smith Dip.FD, LMBIFD and Christopher McQueen (three long-standing colleagues of the company).
We have a dedicated funeral team, maintaining the personal caring service expected by the bereaved and that of a small family company. We treat every family and loved one as though we were dealing with one of our own family and we endeavour to always ensure you continue through with the same Funeral Director from the first contact to the completion of the arrangements.
The Company has expanded over the last 30 years and its main Office and Chapel of Rest is at The Greystones in Altrincham, with premises also in Sale Moor and Northenden. In 2015 the Company acquired C. L. Birkett and Son and now manages their offices in Urmston and Stretford. We are proud to have Paul Birkett in the Gresty Team, running and managing the Birkett side of our service. We are indebted to the Birkett Family for this opportunity.
Arrangements can be made at your home or one of our local offices, whichever is more convenient for you. We hope that our website will give you an insight into the services we offer, what to do in time of bereavement and how to pre-arrange a funeral.
