Excellent service from the first time we entered Harrison's Funeral Parlour in Gosforth all through the period before the funeral and afterwards. Gerry Young and the staff in the office were exceptional and gave us the right balance and support we needed at this sad and stressful time.

From first walking in the door the staff at WS Harrison provided a first class service. Nothing was too much trouble. They kept us informed at every stage of the funeral process. On the day everything went to plan. Thank you for making this unfortunate time as smooth and as painless as it could be.

I could not have wished for a better service from start to finish. The staff were kind, helpful and clear about the decisions I needed to make. They listened carefully to my ideas and helped me to organise everything just as I wanted it to be. They followed up with appropriate phone calls and helped me to feel at ease about the funeral day. Many thanks.

My Father passed away on 5th November 2020 and from that very day, Jerry and the team at WS Harrison's were amazing. Jerry in particular, was incredibly empathetic, caring and understanding, delivering excellent service and support with the utmost professionalism. During the whole process from pre-funeral through to the actual service and then post-funeral service, the WS Harrison team were faultless and took the time and effort at all times, to ensure Dad and the family were all cared for. Jerry and the Team made a very difficult time, far easier for our family, for which we are all extremely grateful.

Loosing a loved one is a very emotional and upsetting experience no matter how much you prepare yourself. The care that was afforded to us during this time from Gerry and his team at the Gosforth office was first class with all our worries taken away and the process of the funeral explained in a very clear and simple way.
We received constant communication throughout the process and never felt hurried with the decisions we had to make. From walking into the Gosforth office to saying farewell to our loved one, we felt supported throughout which made the whole experience more bearable.
Many thanks to all.

The service we received during this difficult time was made so much easier due to the compassionate and sensitive nature of the funeral director. The way in which they took us through the process was exceptional and the fact they kept in touch with us leading up to the funeral and again after the funeral took away any worries we may have had.

Harrison's were great, they took the sting out of a difficult situation. Arranged the details with Rob and after that Harrison's took over and the day went seamlessly. Particularly liked the way the ashes were handled, the book marks, and best of all the memory book. Particularly like in the memory book a set pictures taken from Sandra's history. All in all Harrison's were a great support during a difficult time, thank you. Success in 2020.
Rating 5.0
From the first contact, the staff were sensitive, kind, generous, understanding, and responsive. As well as addressing efficiently the obvious matters relating to our mother's funeral arrangements, there were numerous occasions when the designated funeral director and his colleagues went 'above and beyond' what we might reasonably have expected of them. We deeply appreciated their care and attention throughout the process and would recommend them highly.
