We can guide you through the full funeral process. From registering the death to choosing which method would be best for your loved one, whether it be burial or cremation.
The business was started in Gateshead as part of Murray Memorials, who have created memorials for generations.
Murray Memorials are a local family run business, who believe a memorial is the last gift you can give to someone so it needs to be done right. The new generation of workers have proven to be innovative in their approach and are all trained with in their chosen field.
In 2015, Murray Memorials created Gateshead & Felling Funeral Services as we felt we could offer a complete all in one service to the public, providing memorials, funeral services, and floral tributes or flower hire. We can even provide green burials, or bespoke memorials to meet your exact needs.
We have the use of a green burial plot in the Durham Hills, just outside of Consett, with it’s own chapel. This plot provides lovely views across Derwentside in peaceful surroundings. It’s home to a plethora of wildlife and songbirds. There’s onsite facilities, and is open 7 days a week. It is also easily accessibly car and public transport. The green burial is also much cheaper than a local authority burial (or burial of cremated ashes), and is becoming more popular.
Please feel free to call and discuss your requirements over the telephone on 0191 4695442 at any time you want, or visit our showroom to peruse our selection of tributes and to find a beautiful floral tribute to honour your loved one.
If you have a funeral plan with any other funeral director – you can still use the funeral plan with us – and it could save you a substantial amount of money.
