My family has always used Johnson Funeral Directors in South Shields over the years. My mother passed away in March and we had to arrange repatriation to South Shields to put my late mother into Johnsons care. Due to the Covid situation and our distant location everything had to be arranged via telephone and email. All the information was provided promptly and the funeral, casket,flowers, urn and order of service where arranged. I was then put in touch with a local vicar and my late mothers eulogy and final cremation where arranged. On the day everything went perfectly, after weeks of arrangements I finally met the funeral Manager and he helped us all through the whole morning. I can only say that Mr Harkus went the extras mile for us by getting my late mothers ashes too me on the same day. We as a family have no hesitation in recommending Johnson Funeral Directors for the first class service they provided to me and the care they took with my late mother.
