About Us

Whickham's Trusted Funeral Director

Martin Rankin Funeral Directors success comes from families in the Whickham and surrounding areas  who have trusted us choosing to come back to us again. Families are regularly recommended to use us based on our strong reputation. We never forget our responsibility to provide a sensitive service of the highest standard.

When someone dies families are invariably in state of shock or heightened emotion, even if the death is expected nothing prepares you for the emotional shock of losing someone close.

As professional and dedicated funeral directors, we are here to help, advise and support you at this demanding time. We know the day of your loved one's funeral will stay in your memory for years to come and we always keep this in mind as we carry out our services.

Every Funeral is Unique

At Martin Rankin Funeral Directors we know that every family and every funeral is unique and we always keep this in mind. The first step when we arrange a funeral is to spend as much time as we need listening to your needs and allow you as much time as you may need to make decisions. Your needs will always be our main concern.

Whether the death occurs at home, in hospital or even abroad our caring and trained staff are available to guide you through the process in every detail.

Our membership of The Society of Allied and Independent Funeral Directors and its code of practice gives you the assurance that your funeral will be arranged in a professional and well organised fashion.
