Richard my family and I would like to thank you for the compassion and dignity you treated us with on the unexpected sudden death of my sister Joy.You made this difficult time much easier to bear, and took over all arrangements for us. From the beautiful Floral tribute you ordered for the coffin to Chris the humanist who listened to all our stories and told them perfectly. Once again our most sincere thanks on how professional and attentive you were. We would highly recommend Newcastle Family Funeral Directors.  Brian Ann Gayle Mandy and Keith

Couldn't thank Richard enough, unfortunately we have had to use Richard twice in such a short period of time. I got recommend his service and so pleased we decided to to use him.

Richard Bird was very caring and understanding with what we as a family are going through. I’m really glad I went to them for my sister Mary, I honestly believe that no other company or funeral directors could have been as lovely as they were. I would recommend Newcastle Family Funeral Directors to anyone who may be struggling to know who to go to. No one else is as good as them.

  • 4 Wendy Hoggins 18th Jun 2018

    Richard is a very professional and friendly gentleman to deal with and showed care throughout the planning of the funeral from the initial phone call in the early hours of the morning, to the end. The music was as I wished, and the humanist, Stevie, spoke very well and also sent the service in a booklet after the funeral. All the staff were professional, polite, and attentive to the children as they understood the children were very upset.

    Richard Bird replied
    We are glad that you found the staff to be professional and understanding and would thank you for taking the time to leave this good review.

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.
