Funeral care at the heart of the community

Our warm and welcoming funeral care premises are conveniently located at the centre of North Shields on Albion Road, where customers can visit at any time.

Turnbulls is a place of respect and professionalism, yet we also want you to feel relaxed and at home in the surroundings. We believe we have the balance just right after being in the funeral business for hundreds of years.

Our airy and beautifully decorated interior space offers the ideal place for discussing your funeral requirements with the utmost discretion.

A place to visit the deceased

During the period of a funeral, we also offer a comfortable setting for visiting the deceased. Our private chapel of rest allow visitors as much privacy and time as they wish to say goodbye to a relative or friend.

Family-owned Turnbulls are very respectful of all religions and traditions and our staff will endeavour to help you to create the desired set-up and atmosphere for your time with the deceased.

Why not pop in to our premises during office hours or make an appointment to find out more about the exemplary funeral care services offered at independent funeral directors Turnbulls?


Because I have loved life, I shall have no sorrow to die. I have sent up my gladness on wings, to be lost in the blue of the sky. I have run and leaped with the rain, I have taken the wind to my breast. My cheeks like a drowsy child to the face of the earth I have pressed. Because I have loved life, I shall have no sorrow to die.

– Amelia Burr, American poet (1878 – 1968) –
