Hello, I'm Steven Barrett of family funeral directors R.W. Barrett & Son,

We are a local independent family firm of Funeral Directors in Newcastle upon Tyne. In 2008 Ronnie, Pat and myself opened our funeral home on the West Road. We were confident we could provide the local community with affordable and dignified funerals of the highest standard.

Eight years on, thanks to the loyalty of local families we opened our second funeral home in West Denton, and are proud as our family business continues to serve the community.

Ronnie Barrett

Sadly in August 2016 Ronnie Barrett 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 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.
