Funeral services with no hidden costs

Our funerals are personally planned and professionally delivered by a family-owned company that has been looking after the North Shields community for five generations.

Our customers can be wholly confident that Turnbulls will provide the highest standard of funeral arrangements for your loved one. Yet, we still offer our services at highly competitive prices.

The cost of our funeral is divided into two parts:

  • Fees due to the funeral directors for the services they provide.
  • Fees due to third parties, called disbursements, which the funeral directors pay on your behalf.

  • Simple coffin
  • Interment fee
  • Professional fee

FROM £2,900



  • Simple coffin
  • Cremation fee
  • Professional fee
  • Jaguar hearse or similar

Additional costs:

The cost of disbursements is additional. Disbursement costs include payments to a third party that are not quantifiable until booked, such as flowers, newspaper notices, service sheets for the ceremony, book of condolences, cremation/burial costs, doctor’s certificates, church and minister fees and organist.


Please do call Turnbulls, or pop in, for a quote or to discuss your funeral requirements. We are happy to offer a written estimate and we will always discuss how we can match the cost of any other written quotation provided by a local funeral director.



Even such is Time, that takes in trust Our youth, our joys, our all we have, And pays us but with earth and dust; Who in the dark and silent grave When we have wandered all our ways, Shuts up the story of our days; But from this earth, this grave, this dust, My God shall raise me up, I trust.

– Sir Walter Raleigh, explorer (1554-1618) –
