We are pleased to announce that Kevin Foster Funeral Services have opened an office and chapel of rest at 70 Regent Street, Blyth, Northumberland (01670 364 573). Having established this funeral business from a home environment, we felt the next stage was to have a presence in the community. This is one of a few independent funeral companies operating in Northumberland. We pride ourselves in keeping our costs low and passing savings on to families in their time of need.

In the comfort of our new office (next to Herrons The Jewellers), we are in a prime position on the main Fairthrough Blyth, Northumberland. Adjoining our new office is our chapel of rest which is tastefully decorated throughout. Kevin Foster Funeral Services has evolved from requests from previous families who have requested Kevin to provide his services for additional family members.

Recent changes now mean some local authorities have contracts with a limited number of funeral companies for removal in cases of sudden death. The family of the deceased do not have to automatically accept the coroners removal company to undertake funeral arrangements. The family of the deceased are entitled to make their own choice as to which company will act on their behalf. Pre-payment plans available.

Despite being in business for only 5 months, Kevin Foster Funeral Services has already been granted access to SAIF – The National Society of Allied & Independent Funeral Services due to the incredibly high standards and is now able to offer Golden Charter Funeral Plans – who are the UK’s No.1 provider. 

The business is run by husband and wife team Kevin and Pat Foster, whom formally opened their doors in November last year.

Its prime location in Blyth was only spotted by chance as they drove through the main through fare of the town, opposite Morrisons.

The couple have been relying on Kevin’s, 20-plus years of experience in the business, with Pat looking after the accounts and day to day running of the office.

Kevin says: ‘ Since opening in November we are pleased that the business is going from strength to strength. Being a husband and wife operated business allows us to keeps our overheads to the minimum. Recognising that some families struggle with paying funeral costs we can, as an Independent, pass on savings to the families, keeping costs to a minimum and making the remaining family’s journey that little bit easier.

Pat added: ‘Kevin, although some may say I am biased, dedicates an enormous amount of time to ensuring the family of deceased receive a first class service. No time limits are set for arranging, we listen the Clients needs and wishes, deal with them at their pace, we don’t clock off at 5pm, we are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, whether its for an informal chat about our services or arranging a deceased funeral, you can be assured of receiving a Professional and Dignified Service.’

 We are dedicated to making a success, at the same time giving honest and compassionate advice throughout the day to day running of our new, yet growing from strength to strength, funeral business.
