Discussing your arrangements
If you wish, a home visit will be made and we will discuss every aspect of the funeral arrangements with you, as well as legal requirements and procedures. Alternatively, if preferred, we can discuss your needs at one of our four private offices.
A funeral director is always available to speak to you, at any time of the day, and any day of the year. Just call 0191 586 4322.
We will keep you informed of any changes or difficulties that may arise with your arrangements.
Tailoring the funeral
We can offer a wide variety of funeral types, both religious and non-religious.
Our standard vehicles are Mercedes Limousines and Hearses which are kept in immaculate condition. Horse-drawn hearses are also available. You can find out more about our vehicles here >
Our aim is to ensure respect for the deceased and their loved ones, and to give you total peace of mind by providing a service to you that runs smoothly, efficiently and is personalised to fit your particular requirements.
