Surrounded by family and friends, you celebrate the life of your loved one...
Life stories have been shared, forgotten memories have been recalled, the final goodbye has been said...
The funeral service is a reflection of the special stories that bind families forever to their loved one.
For many years Pettigrew Family Funerals have encouraged their families to continue their story telling over a cup of coffee... this tradition continues as family and friends meet at Memories Function Centre, across the road from our Wallsend Chapel. We also provide catering at our Newcastle Chapel and Belmont Chapel.
