1 review

W Lauderdale & Son Funeral Services have been serving the people of Gateshead since 1946. A family business, W Lauderdale senior set up shop just after the Second World War, and handed over to W Lauderdale junior in 1968. No matter who you speak to at W Lauderdale, we will always offer you our unconditional and utmost support and compassion as you not only come to terms with your loss, but attempt to navigate the often confusing waters of funeral arranagement. It's what we have done for over 70 years, and we can do as much, or as little as you'd like us to. Perhaps it is because of the years of experience that we have in looking after Gateshead's deceased that we approach each funeral and every deceased with dignity, sincere care and attention to detail. Nothing is too much trouble, and we will honour your wishes to the letter. Our care does not stop with the deceased. We invite you to give us a call and perhaps even drop in for a relaxed and non-committal conversation about your wishes, either for a loved one or for yourself. At W Lauderdale we aim to create a peaceful environment within which you can begin your grief journey and work out how best to say goodbye to your loved one. We offer a direct cremation service which is our most cost-effective option. Your loved one will be treated with the same high standard of care and respect no matter which options you choose. W Lauderdale has a large range of coffins, from traditional, solid wood to newer designs, including wicker. We can create fully bespoke, personalised coffins. Just let us know and we'll make it happen. We also have a large fleet of transportation to suit your requirements. Whether you'd like a simple hearse, an estate car or even a horse-drawn carriage, we can make it happen. And don't hesitate to ask us about floral tributes either. A W Lauderdale & Son funeral will always be undertaken precisely to your specifications.
