About our Newtownards funeral home

As local funeral directors, Kirkwoods have served the community for many years. As well as supporting Newtownards and the surrounding areas, we also help the local communities in Belfast and Lisburn from our other funeral homes.

We are here to advise and guide you through this difficult time, and we do so by supporting you at every step. Our dedicated team will take care of the funeral arrangements to alleviate the stress that often comes with planning a funeral.

We are a part of dignity, which means that we draw upon a wide range of knowledge and expertise, and we have access to a vast support network. For you, that means that you can get in touch with us at any time, 24 hours a day. It means that your loved one will be in the care of compassionate and respectful professionals, to give you peace of mind. Most of all, it means that we will work closely with you to arrange a fitting farewell for your loved one, taking each of your wishes into account, so that you can celebrate your loved one’s life in a meaningful way.

Nothing is too much trouble, and we will do everything we can to honour any request you have.

Our funeral home in County Down is able to hold services of up to 100 people. We also have three rest rooms, as well as a private arranging room and a family room. The funeral home is decorated to help you feel comfortable and at ease whenever you visit us.

We understand how difficult it can be to plan a funeral, so please get in touch as soon as you need us, at any time of the day, and we will be here for you. It is our duty to make things easier for you, and we are always here to support you.

Frequently asked questions

  • When someone dies, the first steps will depend on how and where the person passed away. Our step-by-step guides will walk you through the practical steps. For additional support and personal advice, please get in touch with us.


  • You don't have to make an appointment at our funeral homes. However, doing so will ensure that someone can be available to cater to your needs. When arranging a funeral, our Funeral Directors are happy to visit you in your own home, if required.


  • Third party funeral costs are additional charges which we will manage for you and attach to your single invoice. Get in touch with us to confirm costs and plan a funeral to fit your budget.


  • If you choose to arrange the funeral with us, you will be given the option of a complimentary Funeral Notice. We will set it up for you using the details discussed during the arrangements. All we need is an email address.


  • Dignity Funeral Plans let you pay for your funeral in advance and at today's price. It's a way of taking control of the unexpected, setting out the arrangements and limiting the costs by paying for the services included in the funeral plan upfront.

The team delivered a service in the most compassionate, professional manner, of highest standards that you could not fault at all. Stephen, Liza and Janeen ( forgive me if I haven’t spelt their names correctly ) were so caring which was appreciated under the upsetting circumstances of losing a loved one.
