Meet the Team

At Memories Funeral Service, we are a small team of people who care. We will always put your needs before profit and between us we have many years of experience of delivering funerals to an exceptionally high standard. Because we are a small family team we are able to dedicate the time needed to help you, and to guide you through this time but also be there for you after the funeral.

Simon Pendlebury
Funeral Director

Simon is responsible for the day to day running of the funeral home, as well as being the dedicated funeral director for our three funeral homes. He has been a keen member of the funeral profession for 10 years. He has a very keen eye for detail, and ensuring things are done properly. Originally from the north of the city he has been in Stockport for many years and so has a wonderful knowledge of the local area.

In his spare time he enjoys walking his dog, Cailen, and going to the theatre.

David Ollerenshaw

David started Memories Funeral Service in 2018 after spotting a need in the area for a funeral director of distinction, whilst being affordable. David is responsible for the company’s finances and fleet maintenance. He runs the company with his wife Helen and can often be seen making sure all of our vehicles are up to our high standards.

David enjoys spending time with friends and family enjoying fine food and good company.

Helen Ollerenshaw
Funeral Arranger

Helen joined the business as funeral arranger after leaving her previous role working in a local primary school. Her personal knowledge of loss with her compassionate nature means that Helen can put people at ease straight away, and will always offer a warm hug or words of encouragement. Helen works hard making sure we can always be there for you when you need us.

Away from the office Helen likes spending time by the sea when she can, and spending time with her dog Minnie.
