About our Darlington funeral home

We were first established in 1910 as Meynell’s Funeral Services and have gone from strength to strength ever since. Fast forward to today, we are now working under the name Meynell & Mason Funeral Directors as we work together with three more funeral homes in County Durham and Cleveland. We provide consistently high standards of funeral care and facilities to the local families of Darlington and are renowned for the standard of service that we offer to bereaved families. As dedicated funeral professionals, we hope to provide peace of mind for families as we try to ease the process of funeral planning. We understand that when losing someone incredibly dear to you, there can be a lot to consider and waves of mixed emotions, as you dedicate yourself to arranging a personal funeral service in their honour. We are here to listen carefully to your wishes, so we can plan accordingly and make arrangements on your behalf. We hope our process will alleviate some of the stress you and your family may be feeling with funeral planning, while making sure that everything is just right for the funeral.

  • On the 28th June 2022 we said a sad farewell to our precious mum. John Meynell were the chosen Funeral Directors.We cannot praise Tracey and her team highly enough for their professionalism, attention to detail and their compassion. Nothing was too much trouble, they certainly went above and beyond. The Funeral was befitting our mum and went without a hitch. I would recommend Tracey and her team without hesitation. They made a very sad day bearable. With kind regards, The family of Joan Emmerson.

  • I would like to thank all the staff and the celebrant for a professional caring and efficient service. The floral arrangement was beautiful as was the service itself. Mam had taken out a funeral plan and would highly recommend one as it made the process much easier at such a difficult time. Once again I cannot thank you enough for everything you have done and would have no hesitation in recommending you.
