John Bardgett founded our Heworth funeral directors in 1914 with help from his three sons. In 1996 we became a part of Dignity, with John's great grandsons still working with our Gateshead funeral directors today as consultants. A thorough knowledge of funerals in our community has been passed down the generations and our values of compassion and care are still at the very heart of what we do. You can rely on us to provide a truly dignified and person service for your loved one who has passed away.
