I would like to thank Steven, Rachael and his team for a truly professional service. From the first time we met they made a sad time in our lives alot easier to deal with, from organising the funeral service and flowers to the internment of our beloved mam. I would highly recommend them to anyone who has lost a family member as their compassion and understanding from beginning to the end is outstanding. Nothing was an issue for them and the small gift afterwards relating to mam was very touching and greatly appreciated. Also a big thanks to Dee Wheatley (celebrant) whose eulogy was first class. Thanks once again Sharon & John, Robert & Sue.

Unexpectedly my son passed away, and your funeral home was highly recommended. Right from phoning and speaking to Steven, everything was taken care of. I can't thank you enough absolutely 100%. Perfect professional and with compassion. Also humanist was top class.

Iv used Steven a few times now . Firstly for my little girl , then more recently for my grandad. The full team are absolutely amazing . They really do make sure the last journey of your loved one is exactly how they deserve , its hard writing a review for a funeral director as just having to use one is everyone's worst nightmare. But if u make one right decision it would be to use these . They take the as much stress away as they can they offer everything all in one place from the funeral itself to flowers and memorials .

To all at RW Barrett and Son, Thank you so much for all your support and help with planning our mam's funeral. Jim was absolutely magnificent, he kept us up to date every step of the way and was always on hand if we had any questions. He really helped us when we needed it and can't thank him enough.

In addition to the professional service you would expect from a funeral director, we were afforded such care, compassion and kindness, that it felt like our beloved family member was one of their own family. Everything was handled impeccably and anything we asked for was done willingly. Can’t recommend this business highly enough. Well done to all and especially Jim who was our main contact.

Sadly we lost our daughter suddenly on the 10th of April 2023.We wanted her cared for with dignity and love and chose Steven/Rachel and the team as they are a family owned funeral service and offer such a compassionate and caring approach when family’s are faced with such a loss. We live in wallsend but chose Steven as we knew our daughter would be in a safe and loving environment. A very professional funeral business and the staff are all amazing and very comforting. Huge shout out to Paul(one of the drivers)as he was so supportive on the day. A flawless service on the day and we would also recommend Tracy Heron the humanist lady as she was simply the best on the day and gave our daughter the best send off possible. Thank you so so much! Steve Davis.

My sister and I (and indeed the whole family) were enormously pleased by, and thankful for, you and your staff’s sensitive and kindly support and efficiency during the difficult period following my mother’s death and whilst making the painful but necessary arrangements for her obsequies. Needless to say the Requiem Mass and cremation service were commented on by friends and family alike for the dignity, solemnity and honour accorded to my mum at St. Charles’ and at the crematorium. Do pass on my thanks and good wishes to all of your staff (and a personal thank you from me to you Steven; without a doubt your father would be proud of his son and successor’s maintenance of high standards). As far as I am concerned Barrett’s is now my family funeral director. I shall be in touch soon to discuss the interment of mum’s ashes in the family plot. Again my thanks. Best wishes, Michael

Steven and his team come highly recommended. From the very first contact I knew that our friend was going to be well looked after while she was in their care. I felt that I was in safe hands with a company that knew what they were doing. Their service was very professional but also caring and considerate. Nothing seemed too much bother. On the day of the funeral Jim was so kind, caring and sensitive. He gently guided us and seemed to really empathise with us in our grief. Thank you so much.
