Funeral Directors North Shields – Testimonials

My husband passed away in September and I contacted Turnbulls after a friend recommended them. I am so grateful to have enlisted their support because not only did they look after my lovely husband carefully, they supported me from the first contact, guiding me but respecting every decision I made and fulfilling it to the letter as well as putting me in touch with Carly Fee our fantastic Celebrant for the service. Sharon was amazing and I gained emotional and practical support from her throughout. I feel she invested in my family to ensure our experience was as positive as it could be in a time of great sadness. I'll always be grateful to her for that and wholeheartedly recommend Turnbull and Sons.

Our family in North Shields have used Turnbull for many years. Martyn took great care of us when our Aunt passed away recently. All emails and messages were responded to quickly despite what must be an exceptionally busy time for undertakers. This was very reassuring for us as we live 150 miles away from Shields. The funeral was professional, calm and our Aunt would have been very pleased with how things were handled. Thank you Martyn and your team.

I would highly recommend Sharon and her team. Very professional, friendly and approachable. They looked after us from start to finish when my Dad passed away, and explained everything clearly regarding covid restrictions and rules. Hopefully it will be a long time before I need their services again, but I would not go anywhere else.

Sharon and her team were second to none. We had attended a family funeral 12 months earlier and were really impressed by the professionalism of the female funeral director (Sharon) on the day. We were also aware of the personal touch she had provided the family along with some good advice whilst discussing options. Therefore we didn’t hesitate to contact E Turnbull & Son Ltd and were not disappointed by the quality of the service and commitment to providing my mam with the best possible send off. We would highly recommend this family run firm, who are experts in their field.
