About Us

Newcastle Family Funeral Directors is a an entirely local Newcastle funeral service and I am Richard Bird senior funeral director and partner, the one in the top hat standing up in the photo here next to the horses ! Myself and Phillip Harrison have over 45 years’ experience between us in helping families organise a funeral, and we are proud to serve our local community. We offer an affordable and flexible service, and pride ourselves on our dedicated and caring approach. Phillip and myself are available 24 hours a day

No two lives are the same, and it follows that no two funerals should be the same. We tailor each funeral individually, to ensure that it truly reflects the life of the deceased, and that you are able to give your loved one exactly the funeral they would have wished for.

A bereavement is probably the most upsetting and difficult thing any of us will ever have to deal with, and Funeral Directors Newcastle is here to guide you and give you all the help and support you need at this vulnerable time.

We cover the whole of Newcastle upon Tyne, along with Tyneside and Northumberland, and assure you of a compassionate and attentive service at all times. Richard and Phillip are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, to answer any questions you may have.
