Welcome to N Alderson Funeral Director Ltd

As a family run business we have been offering a caring funeral service across Durham since 1921. At a time of bereavement your life is in an emotional upheaval and a funeral may seem like a difficult and stressful task to tackle. However, organising a funeral can give you a sense of being able to do something positive.

A word from Mr Alderson:

The business was established by my grandfather Robert William Alderson and now, with the assistance of Chris Williams and Tina Pickering we are here to offer you a caring and sensitive service, tailored to meet your needs and those of your loved one. We will use our expertise to guide you through all the aspects of arranging a funeral, without being rushed. We use our experience to ensure that the funeral is a fitting tribute for your loved one.


Buffet Service Available

Once we have bought your loved one into our care we will treat them with respect. You are welcome to visit them at any time and we can bring them to your home prior to the funeral. We can carry out the hygienic treatment and you may have them dressed in their own clothes in the coffin. Our chapels of rest are located in Ushaw Moor and Langley Moor.
