Meet the team

Gareth Wall, Funeral DirectorI have been a funeral director for over 10 years, and can offer a great deal of experience and attention to detail when it comes to arranging funerals for an array of religions and cultures. I began my career in funeral services as a trainee embalmer. Whilst I appreciated the importance of my work as an embalmer in providing comfort to a grieving family, I wanted to help bereaved families in all aspects of the funeral process, so became a funeral director.

I strive to deliver the best service to you and the families I deal with.

Natalia McLackland, Assistant Funeral DirectorMy 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.

Joe Lannin, Assistant Funeral DirectorIf I can make the process of saying goodbye to a loved one easier and in a dignified and compassionate way, I will have done my job.  That's why I do it and why for me, providing the highest quality service for families and friends at this difficult and emotional time is my key motivation and goal.

I have been involved in the funeral industry for a number of years and am looking forward to my role and the contribution I can make as a Funeral Director at Regent Funeral Services.
