  • If you choose to arrange the funeral with us, you will be given the option of a complimentary Funeral Notice. We will set it up for you using the details discussed during the arrangements. All we need is an email address.

From start to finish the organising of the funeral was effortless, with never having organised a funeral before, I wasn’t sure what to expect or do, but everything was explained, the staff were extremely helpful and kept you informed at every step of the way, I would highly recommend speckmans to anyone
Response from Speckmans Funeral Directors
We understand how important it is to keep families informed and I'm pleased that our team did exactly that for you.

Even though the pandemic restrictions limited our funeral arrangements, I cannot commend Speckmans highly enough. Their service throughout the whole time was exceptional, sympathetic and sensitive.
Response from Speckmans Funeral Directors

I couldn’t commend more the way I was looked after by Terry, the Funeral Director at Speckmans, who looked after myself and the arrangements for my husband’s service. He was professional, caring and compassionate at all times and showed empathy with the fact I was on my own at such a difficult time.
Nothing was too much trouble to him, I was able to organise the service that I wanted, a true reflection of my husband and how he lived his life, and on the day everything ran smoothly and exactly as I had asked.
Thank you so much.
Response from Speckmans Funeral Directors

Excellent service from Terry and his team. He was in contact with us almost daily to answer questions and make sure we were supported. He ensured that our Mum’s funeral was the best send off we could give her, given the current restrictions. Thank you from the whole family.

Service provided by Speckmans was exceptional. From the moment my wife was taken into your care she was treated with the utmost respect and dignity. I too was given every courtesy by Amanda and Jess at Speckmans. Nothing was too much trouble.
The organisation, preparation and excecution of the funeral service was better than I expected. There were many comments made about the quality of the service from those who attended Durham Crematorium on the day, all thought the 'celebration of life' service was very different and respectful of the families wishes.
Thank you so much for helping me through this very difficult time
Response from Speckmans Funeral Directors
