About Us

Irene Jessop Funeral Service is the only privately run, family owned, independent funeral company in Thornaby. We opened the funeral home on Lanehouse Road after many months of preparation, in March 2010.

Irene Jessop has over 25 years of experience serving bereaved families in their time of need.

Funeral Director Irene Jessop has lived in Thornaby for the past 30 years, knowing the immediate and surrounding areas, the local people and the importance of the “community spirit”.

Irene is both a fully qualified Funeral Director and Embalmer, therefore, families can be reassured of real care and professionalism at all times.

Our motto is “Always with honesty, dignity and respect”. Sentiments very important to Irene’s beliefs within the funeral profession. These sentiments are reflected in our personal service, approach and attitude.

This is our business. Our neighbourhood is your neighbourhood. We have personal pride. We are devoted to families, not profits. Not only do we want to meet your current needs, we also seek to build a relationship of trust, so that you will return to us in the future. This is where we live and work. It’s where we plan to stay. When you need us, we’ll be there.
