In the 90 years since Cecil Smyth established CR Smyth & Son in Vincent St Cessnock,  many things have changed, but the personalised service, professionalism and caring devotion to the local community for which Cecil and his company quickly became known, are still hallmarks of CR Smyth & Son today. The firm continues in family hands and is operated today by Cecil’s grandson, Paul.

The experienced staff at CR Smyth and Son understand the grief and confusion that comes with the loss of a loved one and are there to provide you with personalised, professional advice and support, with the minimum of fuss and intrusion. On call 24 hours a day, we will be there when you need us and can meet with you at your home or either of our offices to discuss your questions and address any special needs or requests with you and your family.
