Turned a sad experience into a pleasant one

5
No one ever expects to have to bury their father, as soon as I walked through the door I knew this was place for him. initially choose it on how clean the place was, my father would have loved the carpet.Tyrone saw me initially, he was outstanding.when I left I never went to any other undertaker as This was the one. William went above and beyond for my father, he put up with some very difficult situations from my family whom were very angry over my fathers death. he was professional/soo kind. I would stand outside my fathers room, But William supported me the day before funeral to see my father soo glad I did see my father. When I saw my dad for first/last time I said I was going to come on the night before funeral to have a coffe outside he messaged me, said he left shutters up for me. I could not go in again too upsetting for that I just wanted that one last coffe being able to see my fathers room.
Service is second to none would recommend this to anyone

Compassion given at such a sad time.

5
During such a sad time, we were shown such compassion and we were able to discuss my mams wishes in an unhurried and friendly but professional manner. Nothing was too much trouble and on the day only respect was shown to my mam and my family. We would definitely recommend this family run business.

Best Funeral Service in Gateshead/Newcastle

Amazing Service and very professional.

Director and his team are brilliant. At such a difficult time using Lauderdale’s was hassle free. Fair pricing and I can see why my family have used this company for 3 generations.

Thanks again

Outstanding work and attention to detail

I cannot recommend the services at W Lauderdale & Son enough.

Sadly we lost my dear Nana back in November. The guys at Lauderdale have acted for our family for decades and they are repeatedly caring, outstandong with their attention to detail and accommodate all wishes.

They provided us with a great send off which helped the family to get that closure that we so needed. They are a credit to the service they operate in.

You may notice a negative review on this page, please ignore this as it is from a member of our family who has had criminal issues in the past. This is totally unreflective of Lauderdale’s excellent service as proven by prior reviews. I believe this is just due to a family issue and irrelevant of the service provided.

I cannot thank them enough for their work and as already stated, would recommend them to anyone.

Not recommended!!!!!

1
My Mam sadly passed away, as I had a strained relationship with my family I allowed them to make the funeral arrangements, prior to the funeral I called the undertaker and he was made aware that my Mam had 2 wishes for her funeral, a white coffin which he advised had been ordered and she would be resting in for the funeral, and a silver funeral car which he had placed an order for and said any issues with this he would notify me, so with no contact prior to the funeral, my grief was more tolerable knowing she would get the funeral she wanted, imagination my personal horror and grief when neither happened and I was not given the courtesy to be made aware before the funeral and only found out when she arrived for the service, the paulbearers on the day showed no respect to me at all, didnt look at me or speak to me despite knowing who I was which made the occasion even more difficult. In the chapel of rest she was not dressed as directed in clothing provided, disgraceful treatment!!!!!
