Debbie Bennett

Funeral directors play a vital role in every community, offering professional and compassionate support during difficult times. With over 25 years of experience, Debbie Bennett, awarded Business Person of the Year and Best Funeral Directors in Knowsley, understands the importance of getting it right the first time. Starting with humble beginnings, her dedication has led to a successful business serving local communities from branches in Prescot, Rainhill, Bootle, and Old Roan.

Committed to excellence, Debbie invests in diploma-qualified staff and community involvement. Her company actively supports cancer research, provides defibrillators to local venues, and aids various charities and initiatives across Merseyside. Each year, she helps out with the Liverpool Taxi Drivers Children In Care Outing Fund, which was founded by Bernie Buxton MBE nearly 40 years ago, and she puts on four limousines to take underprivileged children on a much-appreciated trip to Southport.


Additionally, Debbie's two therapy dogs bring comfort to grieving families, embodying the company's ethos of compassionate care. With overwhelming support from the community, Debbie Bennett Funeral Directors continues to serve families with integrity and compassion.
