Melrose Funeral Services Ltd

Business Overview
Melrose Funeral Services Ltd is an independent, British, family owned funeral company established in 1991 under the name of Melrose & Dennis Funeral Services. We became a Limited Company in July 2012 when one of the partners retired. The main office is at 157 -159 Astley Road, Seaton Delaval with a second branch at 39 Market Street, Dudley.
The business is currently owned and managed by Peter and Susan Melrose. Peter has been a funeral director for 33 years starting his career with H. Duckworth in Cramlington in 1984, he is a professionally qualified funeral director and embalmer and is member of The British Institute of Funeral Directors and the British Institute of Embalmers. Susan joined the company in 2004, she is a professionally qualified embalmer and also a member of the British Institute of Embalmers. Also on the staff is Eddie Wellington, Eddie has been with the company since 2014 he is a professionally qualified funeral director and embalmer formerly with the Co-operative Funeral Service and Lilly Davis who joined us in 2012 she is a professionally qualified embalmer and a member of the British Institute of Embalmers. We believe if you are providing and charging for a service you should be professionally qualified to do it.
We offer a complete 24 hour funeral service covering all areas and we are here to advise you on all aspects of arranging a funeral and to make you aware of the choices available to you.
We also arrange pre-paid funerals through Golden Charter. A funeral plan is an easy way to plan ahead. You choose the funeral you want and fix the cost of your funeral director’s services at today’s prices. A plan can save your family worry and expense, and help make things easier for your loved ones at a difficult time. When the time comes, just one phone call to your funeral director is all that’s needed to activate your plan. Everything will then be taken care of, and carried out according to your wishes, relieving your family of the stress and financial worry they may otherwise have to face.
