Covid-19 Updates - updated 22/2/22 (Funeral Arrangements and Services)

Fawcett and Hetherington Policy

With the new regulations in place stating that if you contract covid you do not need to isolate; we have introduced a company policy saying that if one of our staff members contract covid they they will still be isolating in order to protect any of our families we are looking after.
We will not enter someone's home knowing we have covid and we respectfully request that you do not come into our premises if you have covid so that we can also look after ourselves too.

We are requesting that you still call ahead to make appointments to see loved ones or make arrangements and would still like to limit the amount of people who could be in close proximity.

Arrangements – If it is not possible for you to come into our building to arrange a funeral we will come to your house however we do request politely request only 4 members of family to attend.

Limousines – We are still limiting our limousines to 6 mourners, however this can be from mixed families, and face coverings are not mandatory but advised however if you do have covid we ask that you do not travel in the vehicle.

Services in our Chapel – Up to 34 people may attend. Windows will be opened to help with ventilation and singing will be allowed.

About Us

Established in 1993 by Alistair Fawcett and David “Pip” Hetherington when they opened our first office in South Bank. In 1995 another branch was opened in Normanby High Street.

In October 2010, we combined both offices and opened a purposely designed Funeral Home out of a former Public House on Eston High Street and named it King George House, this allowed us to concentrate our efforts on providing a personal and comforting service in times of need in one central building.

We have 7 chapels of rest, 2 which are specifically designed for disabled access

We also have a service chapel in which we can hold small Funeral Services and other activities. 

We can cater for deaf people as one of our members of staff is qualified to sign language British signature level 2.

 Proud to be on the Three Best Rated website here

We are a member of the National Association of Funeral Directors and abide by its Code of Practice. Our staff are also members of the British Institute of Funeral Directors and The British Institute of Embalmers . We also abide by their codes of practice.
