Meet the team


Natalia McLackland, Funeral Director, GatesheadMy career began working in mortuaries around the North East before moving to Manchester to train as an Anatomical Pathology Technologist, where I qualified with Honours. I have always wanted to work in caring for the deceased and provide a considerate and dignified service for grieving families.

Becoming a funeral director and working in embalming has been a natural and honoured progression and I have stayed in this line of work to simply care and provide for the deceased and to help the bereaved. I trained in counselling so that I could help support peoples individual needs and I have a great deal of experience in assisting bereaved families, religions and cultures,  organising and providing attention to detail in any personal service.

Stephen Colman, Assistant Funeral Director Becoming an Assistant Funeral Director has been a natural progression for me. I've dealt with many situations, providing care to all and helping families throughout their difficult times. I strive to provide the best personal and professional service with the highest care, dignity and respect.

For me it is about the smallest of details and making it an easier, seamless process for the families. I care deeply about helping others and the funeral industry and this is what inspires me to do the very best I can for everyone.
