Melville & Company, as it was first known, was established in 1858 in the heart of Belfast and used horse drawn carriages as its means of transport. Now, over 150 years later, Melville Morgan is proud to continue to offer our services to local people. We remain a privately owned family business, focussed on delivering excellent service at reasonable prices. We are not part of any large group, and are not governed by ‘big company’ ethos. We are independent, which enables us to respond to individual customers’ needs at a personal level, in a professional manner, all of the time. We understand the needs of local people when a bereavement occurs, as we are local too. We provide attention to detail because we care and want to do the best we can for every family, as if it was our own.
We are constantly updating our services and reinvesting in our facilities. We operate the latest fleet of Jaguar Limousines, offer the use of our beautifully decorated funeral homes and employ local professional staff, many of whom are longstanding employees with many years of service and considerable professional experience in the funeral industry here.
Melville Morgan has adapted well to change over more than 150 years, but our core principle – which is to provide a first class professional service, at a personal level, to everyone who calls upon us, remains. This is the measure of our longevity and success and is the reason we remain ‘Trusted’ by so many families here.
At Melville Morgan we understand that arranging a funeral is not an easy task. It can seem overwhelming to have to make funeral arrangements in the midst of coming to terms with the loss of a loved one. Just thinking clearly can seem an impossible task.
At Melville Morgan we understand. Harnessing our many years of experience to assist you, we are able to alleviate much of the stress which can come with the necessary practical arrangements which must be put in place. Stepping alongside you, we can guide you carefully through the process of arranging a funeral, dealing with the many practical aspects of laying your loved one to rest, understanding what you want to happen, all the time providing you with confidence that every matter will be attended to by us, both professionally and respectfully.
We remain a locally owned independent family business. We do not work under pressure to meet targets or satisfy the requirements of large company shareholders. Rather, we are motivated to provide the best professional service possible, tailored to the needs of every individual family who engages us, at fair and reasonable prices. We have a long standing reputation for excellence and we do our best for every individual and family who entrusts their loved one to our care.
