A local family run Funeral Director has recently opened in 3 Sunderland Street, and has now had their first month of trading from the new shop. The family business has built up an excellent reputation, and found that Houghton and the surrounding area could benefit from their services.
We spoke to Martin Morrell, son of one of the directors, John Morrell, and he had this to say to the Houghton traders;
‘Lynne Walker and John Morrell have over 40 years’ experience in all aspects of funeral services. We are fully qualified, skilled and vastly experienced funeral directors with an instinct to know what is best for those whom we look after.
Previously Manager and Assistant Manager of the largest funeral company in the North East, we created our company to give bereaved families our very personal care at a time when they need it most.
We are a family run business and are the only Independent Funeral Directors in Houghton-Le-Spring. We have been based in Gateshead and Washington for over 12 years building up a reputation for being the very best at what we do. Having conducted quite a few funerals in the Houghton-Le-Spring area we have been looking to open up an office in Houghton Le spring for a long time but were waiting to find the right premises. We have done that now in the old Post Office at 3 Sunderland Street, and look forward to helping many more families in and around Houghton-Le-Spring.
As well as providing a high quality Funeral Service we also offer Monumental Masonry and Golden Charter Prepayment Plans which are individually tailored to meet the customer’s needs.’
Martin’s friendly manner and approach can only secure the values they possess as a company, and we wish them every success for the future.
