We know that when you lose a loved one it is a difficult time. Our compassionate team is here to make this experience as easy for you as possible.

Why Choose Us?

We are committed to delivering our core values: Compassion, Dedication, Integrity and Respect

Owned by Jamie Thomson, Rose Memorials was established in 2006 firstly producing Headstone and Memorials for several years. Jamie then opened Rose Funerals & Memorials in 2012. The company has grown since then and have opened a second branch in Stockton on Tees.

The company has gone from strength to strength employing 15 full-time staff with 2 fleets of vehicles, private funeral arrangement rooms, extensive mortuary facilities and five Chapels of Rest. We also have two large Headstone & Memorial showrooms.

Respect

The highest level of respect is given to both the deceased and also the bereaved family left behind. 

From the first time someone comes into our care, we treat them with the same respect we’d apply to our own family throughout their final journey. 

And for those left behind, we ensure they can lean on our experience, have time, space and support ot arrange the funeral they really want.

Dedication

Our dedication sets us apart too. From offering a single point of contact throughout ,rather than a split team or call centre, to being available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. 

The little things we do make a big difference from picking up clothing for your loved one, to returning jewellery. 

Transparency

We are transparent about what’s involved in a funeral and also how much it will cost. 

No upselling, no hidden extras, no surprises

We don’t charge extra for viewing, service rooms, out-of-hours removals or for any extra staff needed on the day. 

Delivering the highest standards of service matters to us.  Ensuring you get the support you need.

Our staff choose their job because they care

We care that you successfully arrange a send off that’s just right, based on what’s important to you and your loved ones.

For some, that road is well trodden and for others, it’s the first time. But for all it’s an emotional time to make big, unfamiliar decisions. Our team offer experience, patience, time and a lot of understanding. Which is why compassion for bereaved families is our number one value.

When you place your trust in Rose Funerals, you can expect the highest standards of professionalism, and a truly distinct service. The role of your local funeral director is to ease the stress and burden of decision-making, to listen carefully so that we may offer you expert guidance and provide you with a single point of contact, who is always on hand to ease any worries or uncertainty with compassion and care.
