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.
