I was more than pleased with the personal service we received from Chris Walker who helped make a difficult time very easy to get through. Personally, I liked the fact that a fixed and competitive price was quoted. A funeral is carried out at an emotional time and cost is not something that most people like to discuss but is nevertheless important. I would therefore recommend CM Walkers to anyone requires a friendly, efficient and dignified service throughout. Clint Irving.

About Us

CM Walker Funeral Services guide families in Gateshead and across North East England to organise a respectful and dignified funeral for their loved one.

They are available 24 hours a day to provide expert advice on every aspect of the funeral arrangement process. The professional and caring funeral home are happy to discuss needs with you beforehand and liaise with government agencies, coroner, clergy, cemetery or crematorium to plan the entire service.

CM Walker’s offer direct cremations which is a great alternative for those who prefer a simple, minimalist service. Following the cremation, a memorial service can be organised for close friends and family.

For those who prefer traditional arrangements, CM Walker’s are able to organise everything from getting a humanist or religious minister, to providing a coffin and nameplate, to funeral transport (hearse and limousine) and coffin flowers. A chapel of rest available at the premises can give families a quiet space to grieve.

They are also to provide bespoke funeral arrangements for those who want to celebrate the life of a loved one. Some options include motorcycle funerals, London Bus funerals, or with a horse drawn carriage or vintage lorry.

You can even choose to customise your coffin to reflect your loved one’s hobby, favourite band, sport team or location. Those who prefer environmentally friendly option can have their own coffin made from cardboard or wicker.

At a very distressing time, CM Walker Funeral Services help families cope with their grief by proving round-the-clock care and advice through every step of the way.

  • 5 Elaine Farr 21st Sep 2021

    Chris was so kind and sympathetic from the moment i contacted the company to arrange my brothers funeral. He gave me clear and consise instructions on what to do and kept in touch throughout the preparations. I cannot reccomend them highly enough

  • 5 Theresa Hurst 20th Sep 2021

    I highly recommend Walker’s from beginning to end Chris made us all feel very comfortable. Very professional.

  • 5 Stephanie Loughran 7th Sep 2021

    Funeral was handled with grace and compassion, the service was excellent and catered to our specific requirements, could not have asked for a more friendly and personal send off. Highly recommended!!! My biggest thanks to Chris who made the whole process a pleasure in such a difficult time

  • 5 Denise Weddle 6th Sep 2021

    Very kind and helpful - an excellent service.

  • 5 Darryl Baxter 7th Aug 2021

    I could not thank or recommend Chris highly enough for the service he gave to me and my most precious possession ( my partner)on my recent loss . It’s extremely difficult to pick an undertaker at such an emotional time , I was recommended Walkers but still don’t recall by who ! After an initial phone call it felt like Chris took me by the hand and led me through what could have been a terrible time , he made it feel ok .Everything was as he promised me it would be , if not better and all our guests passed comment on the service we received. Last but not least , the value was outstanding. He knew exactly what we wanted and delivered on the nail . We all want to feel we did the best for our loved ones and with Chris’s help I think we did . Thank you hardly seems enough.

  • 4 Joyce Cook 1st Jul 2021

  • 5 Ray Cooley 23rd Jun 2021

    I would highly recommend this company for all your funeral needs.

  • 5 Diane Loncon 17th May 2021

    Excellent service throughout. Other local funeral service companies try to get you to upgrade but make it sound like you're receiving a discount, not with CM Walker what you see is what you get which is a caring,polite, professional service from a company who understand and care. I would not hesitate in recommending this company to friends and family. First class service,thank you.

  • 5 Lauren Murray 1st Apr 2021

    Absolutely amazing service by Chris. At such a terrible time, he managed to make everything go so much smoother. The flowers were beautiful and so was the coffin and he couldn’t have picked a better humanist - dale to do my dads eulogy. Truly amazing and he was prepared to go above and beyond to make sure the day went well , Thankyou so much

  • 5 Geoffrey Armstrong 9th Mar 2021

    For every step of this process Chris went beyond the call of duty, taking every call and meeting every request - no matter how strange - with compassion, warmth, professionalism and a can-do attitude. Throughout what was the most difficult time of my life, and as the weeks passed closer to the day of my Dad’s funeral I only felt more and more fortunate to have C.M Walker’s services as a caring and accommodating guide through the process. No request seemed to big and no question went without a clear and swift answer. With the Covid restrictions and reduced attendance numbers this had the potential to be even more distressing process than normal - we had to change the date of the service multiple times, we had to change the location of the service - each curveball Chris took in his stride and helped us to find a quick and suitable resolution, keeping us all calm and together at a time when the smallest hitch made us feel like falling apart.   We went for the ‘Direct Cremation 2’ option as funds were limited, and we were blown away by the service we received for this price, especially when many of the bigger national funeral services charge much more for a list of the same or fewer services. With this option we never once felt like we were doing a disservice to Dad or ‘scrimping’ with his send off. Instead it was a truly special day made even more so by Chris’ brilliant and respectful leading of the service. A man that is truly very good at his job.  All of this and much more for what is one of the most competitive prices in the country (when Chris says no hidden costs he means it) left me feeling very lucky to have chosen C.M Walker’s to help us say goodbye to my Dad.  Tom & The Armstrong Family

    Great service from a fantastic funeral director. Chris took care of everything which helped ease the pain of sorting out a funeral. I have used his services before and will use them again when needed, hopefully not too soon. Thank you

  • 5 Wendy Smith 3rd Mar 2021

    Made us all feel very comfortable have used cm walkers services before and would recommend anyone to use his services brilliant

  • 5 Paul Gullon 2nd Mar 2021

    I can not recommend CM Walkers Funeral Services too highly. From the moment I contacted them, they guided me through the whole process. They kept me fully informed as to what the next steps I should take were. They dealt with my mums funeral, and only eight weeks later, my fathers funeral. They are amazing. If you are looking for someone who really knows their business and who will support you through a challenging time, then look no further; call them today.

  • 5 Mark Bolam 3rd Mar 2020

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you arrange a funeral?

You can arrange a funeral by choosing a funeral director who will help you organise all of the details. They can help you decide whether to have a cremation or burial and what type of service to choose, as well as additional options, such as music and flowers. You can find out what happens at a funeral and compare funeral directors on Funeral Guide.

What are disbursements?

Disbursements are additional costs for a funeral service that are paid to third-parties, such as florists, celebrants and burial fees. The funeral director will usually charge you for them and then pay the suppliers themselves.

How can I get help with funeral costs?

If the cost of a funeral is not covered by a prepaid funeral plan, or the estate of the person who has died, you may be able to get financial help from the government’s Bereavement Support Payment or from War Disablement Pensions, charitable funds or budgeting loans.
