Welcome to new SAIF MembersSeptember 10, 2014 // No Comments
We are an independent family run business established in 1986, by Alan & Hazel Gascoigne, and assisted by son Jeff. Alan retired in 2013, leaving Jeff to run the business keeping the same personal service that we have always delivered. Our funeral premises ‘Hazelwood House’ is located at Woodhorn Village Ashington. In 1995 we opened our own cemetery now known as ‘Woodhorn Cemetery’. It is owned and maintained by ourselves for the sole use of our clients we serve. This is unique in this country as the majority of burial grounds are owned by the church or the local authority.
Stuart Wright Dip FD, began Stuart Wright Funeral Service in 1992, in Langley Park. In 1998, a branch was opened in Gilesgate, followed by a third in Pelton near Chester- Le- Street.

Today the company employs 12 people and is run by Stuart, his daughter, Rebecca, Lynne Swann and their very loyal team.
