Sad farewell to Jimmy

James Turnbull

Ben Broadhead, of E Turnbull & Son in North Shields, says goodbye to his grandfather, fifth generation funeral director James Turnbull.

“It is with deep sadness that we announce the death of James Turnbull (Jimmy), aged 86, on April 24. He died peacefully at home surrounded by his loving family.

“Jimmy was the fifth generation to run E Turnbull & Son Ltd, a company established in 1790. He started at the tender age of 18 and was still a regular visitor to the office even after his recent retirement. The business continues to be run by his daughter, Jane Broadhead. “He will be hugely missed by his family, friends and all the staff at Turnbulls.”
