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.

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.

Jerry Young gave us excellent service. His manner was very caring and he struck the right note in some light hearted humour which made the process for us less of a sad affair.

My experience with Dignity Funerals and all the staff in managing this funeral enabled the service to proceed very smoothly and professionally.

The interest shown by Jerry,Funeral Director, and his helpful suggestions and willingness to execute the wishes of
the deceased person made it possible that the funeral proceeded perfectly.

The only thing that needs addressing is that when sorting out prices etc there should be a question as to whether the grave in question that will need to be opened up has a kerb stone in it or not. If it has it adds £400 to the bill to remove it first. This wasn’t asked in our situation and only came to light the day before the burial. This is not a time you need to be told this so it would be easier all around if this was asked at first stage.
