All about us

Salt and Son was first established in 1891 on Liverpool Road, Newcastle, before relocating to 28 Bridge Street at a later date.

The funeral home on 28 Bridge Street was purpose built for funeral services, with the family making their own coffins on site and also carrying out their own embalming.

The Salt family included Sidney, John, Belinda, a Nanny and David, a Barrister that resided in London. Belinda managed the family owned business up until 2000.

Salt and Son was one of the first funeral homes to take on a Youth Training Scheme, in 1980.
