Branch information

W S Harrison & Son has been arranging and conducting funerals for over 90 years and also has funeral homes in Newcastle, Gosforth and Forest Hall. After serving in World War I, William Samuel Harrison established himself as a funeral director in the east end of Newcastle. In 1928, he was joined by his son, Albert, and they began to serve increasing numbers of families throughout the 1930s. After the Second World War, they acquired several other funeral businesses and over the next 30 years the business continued to grow and investment was made in new branches and vehicles. In 1980, David Harrison, great grandson of William Samuel, joined the company and continues to manage the W S Harrison & Sons branches today. The funeral home in Whitley Baywas opened in September 2010. We have a welcoming reception area, a private arrangement area and a chapel of rest for families to spend time with the deceased. Our comprehensive range of coffins and urns provides a wide choice to suit all requirements.
