We contacted Charles Embleton in respect of arranging my son’s funeral. The service we received from them was first class. The funeral director Neil Kelly was excellent, he kept us informed & updated at every stage, we couldn’t of asked for more from him.
I would definitely recommend this firm.

During a really difficult time Stuart made the process stressless and easy. He talked us through what was allowed and the impacts of COVID and this enabled us to make quick decisions on what was best for us. He rang most days to offer support and keep us up to date. The day itself was exactly what we wanted, despite the current situation, and we could not thank Stuart and the rest of the team enough.
Response from Charles Embleton Funeral Directors
Thank you so much for this lovely review which means all the more at this very challenging time. The team are working very hard to ensure that each family receives outstanding care and I am so glad their dedication has given you the service you needed.

Everything from the moment we contacted Margaret was never a problem, the communication between our family, yourselves and the Minister was exceptional, it took a lot of the stress and pressure out of a difficult time especially as it was during the second lockdown. Advice was clear and helpful as we live 450 miles away and nothing was overlooked. All safety measures were adhered to and everyone conducted themselves in a sympathetic and caring manner which was very much appreciated as it displayed the respect and solemness the occasion. Personally we would like thank everyone but especially Margaret who was more of a friend than an official, without her help, eye for detail and personality we would not have been able to say goodbye to my Mam in the respectful way we did - a very big thank you.
Response from Charles Embleton Funeral Directors

On behalf of myself and my family I would like to thank the staff at Charles Embleton FDs for arranging both my step-dad's and uncle's funeral. Unfortunately we lost both these family members within months of each other and we cannot thank staff enough for their help and support during this difficult period. All staff were extremely sympathetic and Margaret did an exceptional job of organising both funerals. From start to finish she was there to sort out the finer details and regularly contacted us to keep us up to date with funeral plans. I would also like to thank Ann who was our Celebrant, who along with discussions with our family wrote and delivered beautiful eulogies. Both these ladies helped make such unhappy days a lot more bearable through their sympathetic and caring nature. Again, thank you to all the staff at Charles Embleton FDs which I will highly recommend to anyone.

The staff members both at "Sudero", Blue House Lane, Washington and at the Shiney Row sister branch were always helpful, kindly and sympathetic, carefully leading us through the options available and advising appropriately. They are very skilled in gently leading you through the necessary formalities at an emotional time and injecting a much-needed element of humour at just the right moment if it is fitting. A most professional and caring team service. Many thanks.

I can thoroughly recommend this firm, In your time of grief the staff enough were exceptional, sympathetic to our needs, especially Stuart Tate, whose attention to detail, seeing that things ran smoothely etc. was second to none.
On the day many people remarked how dignified the whole experience was.
I would have no hesitation to use this firm to anyone who is in need of this service
