I would highly recommend Jackie Carron Funeral Directors. They went above and beyond to help with anything that was needed at a very difficult time. They have provided outstanding service to our family for decades. When my mum passed, Jackie worked with me in erecting a beautiful headstone in her memory, nothing was too much. I really appreciated all his hard work.

My father sadly passed away in September 2020 and had personally requested Jackie to be his undertaker. We found Jackie to be very helpful and personable with everything and gave his advice on what we needed to do. He was always on hand and is very experienced in undertaking.

Thank you so much for taking care of my parents after they both died. You are a beautiful man, I realise it's your livelihood I have all the videos of you taking Daddy out of Trummon, his dream home & at the graveyard. I don't know if you get any feedback from the families that you deal with on a daily basis & unfortunately, we are dealing with 3 gone and another that may die soon I look at your directions on the morning as he was taken from his home. * Let the boys pull the trolley out, come on boys *
Thank you so much.

Just a few words to express my gratitude to Jackie Carron Funeral Directors for the dignified and experienced way in which they conducted my late wife, Kay's funeral. The way in which it was handled allowed our family to mourn her loss at a very sad time in our lives.

On behalf of the Mc Crea and Mc Gee family, I would like to extend our thanks to Carron Funeral Directors for their kindness and compassion following the passing of both our beloved parents, Stanley and Elsie Mc Crea. Their professionalism significantly reduced the stress for us at such a difficult time. Their calmness and attention to detail was exceptional and greatly appreciated. Further thanks for the beautiful works completed upon the family graves. We could not recommend Jackie and Tara enough to anyone.
