Our Family/Staff

George Hudson & Sons has been 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, also our long standing member of team, Peter Watson, Funeral Director.
