Serving You and Your Family

“Above and Beyond”

“I can’t thank Stephen Brown enough for the lovely funeral for my grandma would highly recommend. he goes above and beyond for your loved ones and the attention to detail was superb. Thank you so much again for everything you’ve done!”

Jordan-Louise Lydon

“Second to None”

“I can't recommend you enough, you went way and beyond with my dad and I mean beyond, your attention to detail was second to none and the personal touches so heartfelt, I know me and my sisters wouldn't have coped without your support 24/7, always a text or call away at the drop off a hat, you allowed us as a family to spend extra time with dad that wouldn't have been possible had we allowed the cowboys to continue "looking after him. You've a special place in my heart not many get in there so your one of the lucky ones, I don't come across kindness on a scale you showed often, I don't wish any of my loved ones to pop their clogs anytime soon but if they do I’d be very honoured to have you take care of them again, the biggest thank you ever, good luck to you and your family.”

Serena Elizabeth Goonie Fairbairn

“You Made This Terrible Time Bearable”

“All I can say is thank you so, so much, you made this terrible time bearable. Stephen and his wife do an amazing job and took their utmost time handling every aspect of one of my best friends’ funeral, they are so helpful and patient and nothing was too much bother to them. They treat my friends as 1 of their own, what an amazing job this couple do. Thank you again.”

Compassionate, empathetic and sympathetic. A very first class example of funeral directors. Professional and kind. I cannot rate Stephen and Nicola highly enough, expertly and sensitively guiding through an awfully heartbreaking, devastating and quite often, vulnerable time. They handled my late father's funeral flawlessly.

Stephen and Nicola are lovely people we have not had the service but they are going above and beyond even to the point of ringing people to get papers sorted they have supported me and ensured everything my mam wanted was done even when she was poorly they both called me to to have a chat and to see if i was alright. I really can't recommend them enough . i can't put into words how amazing they are. Even when they picked my mam up they did with the utmost respect for me and my mam and had time for a chat even though it was the early hours of the morning. I did not have a clue but they have both supported me through it and are always at the end of telephone. Thank you so much

Outstanding Service

I just wanted to say thank you for everything you and your wife did for me step dad Craig. Meeting you at the home visit I knew straight away he was going to be well looked after... you even made sure he was shaven and looking better. You gave him a good send off and made it even more special by letting my son walk him on his final journey up to the crematorium. Can't thank you enough xx

Kate Metcalfe - 01/02/2021


Where do I start to thank this wonderful business! Stephen & Nicola have been absolutely amazing to me & my sister throughout this heart breaking couple of weeks , from the night my mam passed away to the day we laid her to rest they have been so comforting, they arranged absolutely everything for us nothing was a problem to them & we knew that we could ring them day or night & they were there for us ! They have hearts of gold & made my mams funeral perfect in every way . It is the hardest thing losing a loved one but if I could recommend anyone who is struggling dealing with organising such a heartfelt situation like a funeral these guys are perfect & very professional. Thank you so so much Blyth Family Funerals ! Julie & Alison. xx

Julie Miller - 03/05/2021


From the moment I got in touch with Stephen and Nicola to the day my Nanna made her final journey their support throughout was amazing. Stephen and Nicola went above and beyond and my Nanna's funeral was lovely, a true celebration of her life. The care and love she received while with them was 5 star. Nicola made my Nanna look beautiful and even gave her a-bit of her glow back again. They took all the stress away and dealt with everything. Nothing is a silly question or too much hassle for them. I will be forever great full to you both and you are truly brilliant. I would highly recommend this 5 star business you will not get a better service anywhere else. Thank you so much Stephen & Nicola X X X

Sarah Stephenson - 03/03/2021

Felt like part of our family

Just can't thank Stephen and Nicola enough for everything they did for our daughter Andrea . From the first meeting with Stephen I knew they were the right people to deal with. Nothing was too much trouble for them and Stephen certainly went above and beyond with a couple of "out of the ordinary requests" we made he was very helpful. He made us feel like he was one of the family, as if he knew Andrea personally which really helped us get through the terrible time.. I can't recommend them enough. Thank you Stephen and Nicola we appreciated everything you did. Valerie and John xx

Wonderful, Caring and Compassionate

It was a great comfort to me knowing that you were looking after my husband in the days leading up to his funeral. It goes without saying that you are a wonderful, caring and passionate family business who are prepared to go the extra mile to help and comfort people in what can only be described as some of the darkest days they will probably know.

A Small family run Business

From the moment we called Stephen and Nicola on the night of mams passing, they have shown nothing but love, compassion and respect to us as a family and to my dear Mam. It's hard to find the words to explain how amazing you all are. A small family run business with nothing but first class service from start to finish. I never dreamed we could have such an amazing send off for such a little price! Thank you so much for everything. You will all hold a special place in our hearts forever.

Kindness from the Familiy

What an absolute pleasure ( under the circumstances) it has been using Blyth Family Funerals with Stephen and his family. Unfortunately it was not the 1st time we had needed to use them after losing my Dad in 2019, we never thought we would be using him again so soon but with great sadness we suddenly lost our Mam and did not hesitate to use Blyth Family Funerals. Stephen made us feel amazingly comfortable and made the best out of the very worst scenario. His wife Nicola and daughter Kylie took great care of both my Dad and Mam whilst in their family Chapel and my self Lesley Scott, Sharon Richards, Elle Spowart , Daniel Richards and Saskia Parkes can not thank the family enough for kindness shown in our sad bereavement times, thanks again.

Emma Elizabeth Tall

so compassionate and nothing was a bother

I really can't thank Stephen and his wife enough. I called Stephen up when he was on holiday not sure what I was doing at all. Stephen arranged as much as he could untill he came back. Both Stephen and his wife were so compassionate and nothing was a bother. You honestly helped what seem like the most horrendous time more bearable and went above and beyond to do it. Nobody wants to have to plan funerals but I can honestly say with Stephen and his wife you will have all the help and support you will need.

Verity Green

First Class service
