Testimonials

There simply are not enough words to thank the amazing staff at Joel D Kerr for the care, compassion and dignity shown on the heartbreaking loss of my beautiful Dad. It wasn’t an easy decision choosing who we trusted to look after him but we honestly couldn’t have chosen better. They went above and beyond what we could have ever hoped for. Very special thanks go to Les Watts who delivered the service to absolute perfection despite never having officiated before. Les captured the love, pride and humour we needed to truly portray the wonderful man my Dad was. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts x

Joel D Kerr be very proud of your amazing team.

I cannot believe the truly amazing service we received from the staff at Joel D Kerr during our recent sad loss. They were all so kind, caring, respectful and dignified and paid attention to the smallest details we asked of them. I would strongly recommend using their service which helps make such a sad time more bearable.
A special thanks to Les Watts who came to the rescue after being thrown in at the deep end by our family yet conducted the service with such feeling, humour and professionalism.
Thank you Les and thank you all once again.

Joel Kerr did my sons funeral and was very professional but also down to earth, i felt at ease while he asked questions about what type funeral i wanted and didn’t try and push me into anything he also gave great advice and comfort at a very stressful and heartbreaking time, he took time to ask about Lee and referenced to it on further meetings when i was undecided on the clothes i wanted to bury him in, all these little things matter. I 100% recommend Joel as the best Funeral Director in Hartlepool

Lorraine Matthews

Joel and his staff are very courteous, with great attention to detail of not only the person who has passed over, but also the family.
The viewing rooms for paying last respects are superb and respectful.
The needs of the family from choice of music for service, obituary notices and flowers can be taken care of for the family, as can the arrangement of a member of the clergy or, if non religious, a celebrant to conduct the service.
The after service, arranging for delivery and internment of ashes if required is handled sensitively by his professional and dedicated staff.
Definitely the number 1 choice.
