E Turnbull & Son

Independent Funeral Director

Albion Road, North Shields Tyne & Wear NE29 0HE


Our family have been looking after your family since the 18th century. It was in 1790, when the founder of the business, John Turnbull, began work as a cabinetmaker and undertaker on the quayside at North Shields. It is still an independent, completely family owned and run funeral directors by the extended Turnbull family.
Back then, it was horses that provided the transport for the hearses and E Turnbull & Son also operated as a successful coach builders and livery owners. Over the following decades, our funeral services gained an unrivalled reputation for personalised care and professionalism.
Eight generations on, the horses have been replaced by a fleet of beautiful, high quality motor vehicles and the focus of the business is wholly family funeral care.
Today, Turnbulls is still the same family-run firm. We have grown in size, and our premises have moved into the town of North Shields, but we still maintain the same exacting standards, individualised care and attention to detail.
Few businesses can claim to have such a long history – and we are proud of our special place in the North Shields and North East community.
