About Us

    About Doggarts of Newtownards Funeral Directors

    Doggarts of Newtownards Funeral Directors was founded by William Lamont Doggart over 100 years ago and has served the people of Newtownards and surrounding areas for generations. William’s grandson’s, Henry and Billy Doggart, followed in their grandfather’s footsteps and ran the business for many years. Doggarts of Newtownards Funeral Directors recently refurbished their new premises at Regent House, a landmark building in Newtownards, allowing us to offer the highest levels of professional care and support for families in their time of need. 

    Our motto ‘Caring is at the heart of our approach’ is embedded in everything we do.

    The team at our Newtownards funeral home will provide advice at every stage of the funeral planning process, and will arrange an individual and unique funeral to help you celebrate the life of your loved one. We have our own service venue on-site. 

    Here at Doggards of Newtownards Funeral Directors we also offer an affordable prepaid funeral plan, Choice, so that you can arrange and pay for a funeral in advance. This will protect your family from rising costs and remove uncertainty about your wishes.

    If you would like to talk to us about planning a funeral, or our Choice plan, please come and see us in any of our funeral homes, or if you’d rather we can arrange a home visit. We’re also available 24 hours a day on the phone so if you need anything please don’t hesitate to call your local funeral home.

    Caroline Grierson

    Funeral Arranger

    I have been a carer for many years, I was a swimming teacher and did a first responder role for the ambulance service.

    Helping families give their last acts of love to their loved ones. It is an honour to be able to help them. I also enjoy the community development side of my role, building strong links locally and supporting local initiatives. I am a mum to two teenage boys. I do a bit of open water swimming, less and less as I get older, the Irish sea seems to get colder.
