Coronavirus information

Please review the latest government guidelines for funerals.

It is essential that we continue to follow advice on social distancing to keep you and our staff safe.


Our offices are closed to the public, unless an appointment is made in advance by calling 0191 4334499.

Currently, we can only allow two people in our funeral home when handling arrangements. Alternatively, we can make all the arrangements over the telephone.

We are adhering to all guidance including the test and trace system. When entering our premises, we will ask you to leave your details for tracing purposes and this information will be held securely for 21 days.

Do not turn up for your appointment if you have:

  • returned from a foreign country unless it is on the Government travel corridor list
  • been in contact with someone with confirmed or suspected coronavirus
  • been showing the following symptoms in the past 14 days: a high temperature, new continuous cough or a change in taste or smell


Our office has the availability to continue chapel visits depending on the circumstances, and masks must be worn at all times.  Additionally we can offer:

  • use of our limousines
  • funeral guidance
  • advice on funeral attendance numbers

Please call us if you wish to discuss anything further or have any questions. You can also visit our Regent Funeral Services Facebook page for regular updates and information.

Thank you,
Regent Funeral Services team
