Gibson's Funeral Services


Bereavement is a distressing experience that all of us encounter at sometime in our lives, yet it is something that is talked about very little in every day life. The distress and emotional upset can leave the bereaved completely disorientated and unsure of what to do next. Our service and personal attention starts from the time you contact us. The funeral will be arranged to your individual requirements.

Gibson's Funeral Services are a family firm with over 150 years of experience. Whilst being founded in the village of Howden-le-Wear the family firm has strong and proud links with the Wear Valley Area.

Mark Gibson, the fifth generation, now running the business has over the last years developed and expanded their funeral profession side of the business to incorporate premises at Cockton Hill in Bishop Auckland, Association Street in Shildon and Viewing Rooms at Howden-le-Wear.
Matthew, Mark's son, who gained the N.A.F.D. Diploma in Funeral Directing in 2004, works alongside Mark in the family business, taking it into the sixth generation.

We endeavour under all circumstances to provide full and correct information about all the services that are available to you. Our aim is to listen to and treat you with respect and courtesy in an effort to meet your personal needs, and to ensure that you are completely satisfied with the quality of service that we are able to provide.

Our offices and chapels of rest are available 7 days a week until late evening and beyond if required. Clients confidentiality is observed at all times.
