Embracing a New Approach to Funerals

McAlinden & Murtagh is a well established family run business offering you help, support and guidance during what we know is the most difficult time.

Losing someone close and having to consider saying goodbye can be so painful and we understand the difficulty of having to make all the necessary arrangements thereafter, but we aim to make this much easier and take that burden away from you.

We deal with all aspects of the funeral from the offset, the wake, the service, flowers, catering and final resting place. It is all about making sure we fulfil your loved one’s final wishes with discretion and no fuss, just ensure that you are given the time and space at this very sad time.

Our main office is located at 2 North Street, Lurgan, and our purpose-built funeral home is based in the tranquil Ardmore area just a 10 minute drive from Lurgan. It caters to Lurgan, Craigavon and Portadown, and the surrounding regions.

Our experienced team, who have been with us for many years, offer guidance, support, and care to families, ensuring their needs are met with empathy. As proud members of the National Association of Funeral Directors, we go above and beyond to provide a complete service that lightens the load for bereaved families. At McAlinden and Murtagh Funeral Directors, under the leadership of Francis McAlinden and Louise Taylor, we are here to support you with compassion and unwavering dedication.
