Alan D Haile Funeral Services has relocated to premises on James Street, Seahouses.

The venue will allow the company to better serve its clients.

It was officially unveiled to the public last Friday and had a blessing by Rev David Herbert.

Funeral director Alan is delighted to have moved into the new facility. He said: “This will allow us to offer a better service to our clientèle and it is also more practical, with disabled access.”

Alan D Haile Funeral Services has been owned and managed by Alan since 1999 and prior to the move, was based on Main Street, North Sunderland.

During that time, he has adapted and expanded to respond to the needs and wishes of the deceased and their loved ones.

All arrangements are professionally and personally carried out by Alan, helped by his secretary, Sally-Ann Rogerson.

This ensures that someone is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to provide care, support, advice and reassurance alongside the practical arrangements needed when death occurs.

Alan also has a team of underbearers and drivers and the firm offers a broad service, including burial and cremation arrangements, as well as arrangements for headstones and memorials.

The company is a member of the Golden Charter funeral plans which can offer plans catering to all price ranges and levels of detail.

Alan has thanked his family, including wife Elizabeth, his colleagues and friends for their support, as well as Ken Common from Bart Endean for the donation of the granite signs.
