Our Family run business is led by Colin McGinley. In 1980 Colin made one of those life changing decisions that was to shape his future but he didn’t realise it at the time. Colin was involved in a number of businesses, one of which was a wedding car hire company, then in 1980, he started hiring vehicles to the funeral trade. Through this contact with the funeral business he began to realise that this was his true vocation.
We provide support and careful guidance on all Funeral matters 24 hours a day. If you have any special requests or queries please do not hesitate to contact us.
Colin McGinley Independent Family Funeral Service is a family business run by two families. The business initially started as “Yarm Funeral Service” and in 2014 Colin decided to re brand and open another funeral home in Acklam Middlesbrough.
We opened with a small team of 4. Colin McGinley himself, Garry Savage, Garry’s wife Tracy and their daughter Lauren. Since September 2014 we have been lucky enough to become more and more established in the Middlesbrough area and we currently have 11 members of staff including Colin’s two daughters, Helene and Caroline, Garry and Tracy’s daughter Nichola and her husband Jon. We have 4 other members in the team, Andrew, Phil, Craig and Ashley who although we are not related they are part of our family.
We are dedicated in providing a professional personal and caring service and as a family we offer support, guidance and someone you can rely on at a difficult time.
