Welcome to Ayton and District Funeral Service

Arranging a Funeral can often be an overwhelming event, and for many it is the first time they have had to undertake such an emotional task. So making the right decisions and completing legal documentation needs guidance, advice and support.

We are a Independent Family Business run by myself and wife Barbara who are dedicated to giving you that support and professional service, all of which are handled with sensitivity and in the strictest of confidence at all times.

Having followed in the footsteps of my Grandfather Thomas Rea, and father Vincent Rea both Funeral Directors, I have over 30 years experience in Funeral Directing and Funeral Management, both in the private and corporate sector. (Thomas Rea Funeral Directors Thornaby and H W Carter Stokesley, both now part of the Co-operative Group).

Based in Great Ayton, North Yorkshire and with knowledge of customs and traditions in the outlying areas of Teesside including Stokesley, Seamer, Kirkby, Carlton, Faceby and Swainby, we are able to give advice on Registration for Northallerton, Middlesbrough, Stockton on Tees and Guisborough districts.

We are also authorised to provide Golden Charter Pre-Payment Funeral Plans. Pre-planning gives you peace of mind for you and your family, that your wishes are fulfilled, and a guarantee that there will be no further Funeral Directors charges at the time of need.
