Last Respects: is the first mother and daughter Funeral Service in the Tyneside area & also the first Funerals from Home business to be established in the North East.
Michele Rutherford has been arranging funerals for 18 years, and is a Qualified, licenced Funeral Director.
The family business includes her daughter Michelle Rice who has worked in the funeral industry for 7 years.
Inspired by following the wishes of her late mother Lilian O'Donnell & close friend Barry Lewis “to be laid to rest at home” Michele decided to launch the family business and new venture to help families arrange their loved ones funeral in the same way.
Funeral Homes do arrange for your loved one to rest at home but there is usually an extra charge for this service.
We take pride in offering a personal, private service carried out with dignity and respect to families and their loved ones in the privacy of your own home.
We also offer a bereavement aftercare service. Michele is a Member of the society of Bereavement Practitioners.
