About Us

We are W S Harrison & Son Funeral Directors based in Tyne & Wear. We have served the local community of Newcastle Upon Tyne since the 1920s, and we moved to our current funeral home at St. Mark's House on Shields Road in 1984.

Our funeral home is equipped with three peaceful chapels of rest for you to spend time with your loved one. Our team of funeral professionals are always here to help you from the moment you need us. We are here to give you advice and guidance, and to support you through this difficult time.

We want you to know that you can rely on us, so if you need to talk to us or you want more information, you can call us at any time of the day.

Our Simple funeral is available for £1,995 + third party costs, without compromising on the quality of the service that is delivered. Or our Full Service funeral can be tailored just how you wish, whether that be a traditional ceremony or a colourful celebration of life.

Call us today on 0191 265 5415 to talk through your personal requirements.
