I was born in Newcastle, went to local schools and since leaving have worked in the funeral profession for over 39 years. I am fully qualified and are the only independent funeral director in Newcastle holding both the Diploma in Funeral Directing and also the British Institute of Embalmers.
My knowledge in funeral service started with the North Eastern Cooperative where I worked for 25 years in Newcastle and Tyneside. At the North Eastern Cooperative I progressed through from a funeral worker into management. In 2006 I joined Newcastle Funeral Service in Gosforth and for the next 8 years worked there in a self-employed role.
During my time at Newcastle Funeral Service I felt a need within the industry for a more personal bespoke service and as such felt it was time to open my own funeral home. In 2014 it setup Mark Wait Funeral Service and have had the pleasure to provide my personal service to families throughout the North East. In 2017 I was joined by my daughter Kelsey and we are now both well known in providing an enviable high standard of service to all our clients.
Between us we have 48 years of wealth, experience and knowledge in all funeral aspects and will always practice to the highest of standards. We always respect the deceased, our clients and always provide a service to meet your wishes, adhering to any guidelines, laws and consider other people as not to cause upset or distress to them.
We are always available 24 hours a day to answer any questions that you may have whether your call is in relation to a death, pre-paid funeral or just a general enquiry we look forward to speaking to you.

Amazing Service! I couldn't ask for anything better. Being the first time a death had occurred in the family, not knowing the procedures and what the next steps were. Mr Wait was very educative and supportive during this time and was always a phone call away when needing support. As a family we were very upset about the loss and we couldn't even imagine how stressed out we could have been without Mr Wait. He explained all the legality and the next steps clearly. He provided the required support as well as being cost effective understanding the family situation and accepting family traditions. So Thank you so much Mr Wait. I would highly recommend his service!
What a wonderful service these great people offer. They really looked after my sister recently and my family.Apart from being incredibly professional and caring they were incredibly organised. Kelsey just sorted everything out and was at hand with advice at every point. Wonderful people. I would definitely recommend these guys to look after the people you love.
The service Mark provided was excellent. At a very difficult time, his understanding and empathy supported my family and I perfectly. The advice and guidance was reassuring and allowed us to make choices calmly and with confidence. The organisation and the communication provided by Mark was extremely professional. I would highly recommend his services.
