• “This is the best job I’ve ever had. I love talking to the families, getting to know them, guiding and helping them through a difficult time and, in many instances, becoming friends.” (Fred, Maddocks funeral director)

About Us


Maddock has always been a family-orientated business. Since 1925, when Alf Maddock and his son Harold began arranging funerals in Stockton Heath, we’ve been helping Warrington families to say their final goodbyes. The firm was sold to another family business, Walter Craven Limited, in 1979 – and, a decade or so later, we opened a second funeral home in Lovely Lane.


We offer well-presented premises at both our London Road and Lovely Lane branches. Not to mention our fleet of state-of-the-art limousines. We’re proud to say that we only purchase new limousines and constantly update and maintain them. That means you can rely on the quality of the vehicles that will arrive for your service.


Our success is built on the commitment of our hardworking colleagues. From our careful drivers, John and Garry, to Fred, our experienced funeral director and Keith, Anne Marie, Delai and Joanne, our organised and efficient funeral arrangers, our office manageress, Helen, and chapel attendants Mike and Sue. Not to mention Delia at Lovely Lane who has been helping us for 19 years and is now 71 years young.
