RW Barrett & Son Funeral Directors Newcastle
West Road and West Denton Way
We are a local independent family firm of Funeral Directors in Newcastle upon Tyne. In 2008 Ronnie, Pat and Steven opened their funeral home on the West Road. The future was unsure, but they were confident they could provide the local community with affordable and dignified funerals of the highest standard. Eight years on and we opened our second funeral home in West Denton, and are proud of our family business.
Sadly in August 2016 Ronnie passed away. He had been a qualified funeral director for 50 years. It has been a difficult few months but after attaining his own qualifications Steven has inherited his dad’s ability to deal with the bereaved with empathy, compassion and professionalism. Together with his mam Pat, his wife Rachael and a team of conscientious staff he will continue to move forward using all the skills his dad taught him during their working relationship.
The turn out for Ronnie’s funeral was fitting testament to the lad from Suffolk Street / Scotswood Road.
