About Us

Taking over from his father in 1986, Anthony Johnson commenced trading as Anthony Johnson Funeral Services and the chapel of rest was established at 41 Market Street, Bacup in 1988.

We provide a twenty four hour service and complete chapel of rest facilities.

At this most difficult of times, important and difficult decisions have to be made. We believe being an independent family funeral director you can be assured of a truly local and personal service. We understand the importance of helping families plan a funeral that reflects the life of an individual.

For many it is important to adhere to strict religious beliefs while for others observing religious tradition isn't always required. Whatever you choose, we're here for you and will treat your requirements with care and sensitivity. We aim to lead you through the process with professionalism and compassion.
