In the family for over 150 years
In 1865 George Hudson started a small taxi service, driving locals to work from Longtown and the surrounding areas. His son, George Jr expanded the business, investing a pair of Rolls Royce cars for weddings and funerals.
Peter Hudson, George Jr’s son, took over the company and established the well-known funeral directors it is to this day.
Today George Hudson & Son Funeral Directors is run by Peter’s daughter Mary and her husband Bruce Harris – and in recent years their own children, Adam and Emily, have become the latest generation to join the family business.
Nobody likes to think about their own death. But by planning ahead now, you can ease the financial burden of funeral arrangements that would otherwise fall on relatives and friends.
By choosing a pre-payment scheme we guarantee that, on the day you die, the service you requested will be paid for.
Our pre-payment scheme gives you the flexibility to choose the funeral you want, down to the smallest detail.
Each package includes:
Funeral Director’s charges
Transportation of the deceased to the Chapel of Rest
Care of the deceased until the day of the funeral
The coffin of your choice
Hearse and limousines, if required
Fees paid by the Funeral Director on behalf of the client (eg newspaper announcements)
Church fees, doctor’s fees, flowers etc.
We will give you a full written estimate of all the items you require, without obligation. And if, following the completion of the arrangements, you wish to cancel them we will give you a full refund.
How much does it cost?
The cost of a funeral depends on your requirements.
Our trained staff will help you decide on how you want your funeral to be carried out.
Our advice is impartial, but if you are considering a plan we strongly recommend you complete a Will. Equally, it is important to inform your next of kin or executors that you have taken out a pre-payment option.
