About Us

    About Robert Nuttall Funeral Service

    Robert Nuttall Funeral Service is continuing 40 years of traditions and values established in Shaw by founder Robert Nuttall. Funeral Director Yvonne Holden and Arranger Deborah Thomas bring many years of professional experience and service between them.

    The teams at our Oldham and Rochdale funeral homes will provide advice at every stage of the funeral planning process, and will arrange an individual and unique funeral to help you celebrate the life of your loved one. Our Oldham branch has its own service venue on-site.

    Here at Robert Nuttall Funeral Service we also offer an affordable prepaid funeral plan, Choice, so that you can arrange and pay for a funeral in advance. This will protect your family from rising costs and remove uncertainty about your wishes.

    If you would like to talk to us about planning a funeral, or our Choice plan, please come and see us in any of our funeral homes, or if you’d rather we can arrange a home visit. We’re also available 24 hours a day on the phone so if you need anything please don’t hesitate to call your local funeral home.

    Meet the Team

    Yvonne Holden

    Funeral Director

    “I’ve worked for Funeral Partners since 2015 and have been in the funeral industry for coming up to 8 years, having previously worked in the care sector for the NHS.
    I enjoy providing families with the information, offering them guidance and giving them assistance all the way.
    Often the families I meet become almost like my own family. Once you bond with the families they are friends for life.
    In my past role I gained an award for Funeral Arranger of the Year, 2013 voted by the people I worked with.
    I enjoy running and fund raising events and in my spare time. I also organise days out for the over 60’s Club in my Local Community.”

    Deborah Thomas

    Funeral Arranger

    “I have worked as a funeral professional since 2009 working across the North West area before joining Funeral Partners in 2019 and I currently serve the Oldham community as a Funeral Arranger in Robert Nuttall’s guiding families through the choices and decisions they need to make at the most difficult times in their lives.

    I feel privileged and honored to be in a position to make a difference in the Oldham community”.
