Ken Patton Funeral Directors

Ken Patton Funeral Directors Ltd is a proudly independent family-owned funeral director caring for and supporting local families in Carlisle, Longtown, Brampton and all surrounding areas. Ken, Natalie and Dawn provide a dignified, personal, friendly and professional service, always aiming to provide every family with a funeral that is individually tailored to their specific requirements. We offer traditional, environmental and contemporary funerals and also direct funerals (The Simple Way).

We are not driven by the desire to become a large funeral director but inspired to provide personal and professional funeral services by focusing on family support and care at all times. Our premises are located in Carlisle City Centre within walking distance of rail and bus links and offer a large office, a large chapel of rest, care room with refrigerated facilities, disabled access and private parking.

We own our own vehicles which consist of a Jaguar hearse and limousine. With over 40 years experience our company has grown through establishing an excellent reputation.


We are members of the Association of Green Funeral Directors.

Ken and Natalie Patton, Dawn Evans

Husband and Wife team Ken and Natalie were both born in Carlisle, attended local schools and have over 40 years and 20 years experience respectively in the funeral profession. We established our own business in 2002.

We believe it is a great honour and privilege to be given the responsibility of looking after the funeral arrangements of a loved one. We pride ourselves in offering a personal, professional and dignified service.

All of our attention is concentrated on satisfying the needs of our families. We are flexible and responsive to your requirements. We take time to listen, putting you in charge and offering all the choices that are available. We do all the planning and arranging but always under your close instructions. We are 'Proudly Independent'.

After a small break, Dawn has joined Ken and Natalie, returning to her original role of Funeral Director. Dawn believes that working with Ken and Natalie will give her the opportunity to reconnect with many of the amazing families she has met over the years. Dawn was the first female funeral director 30 years ago and is pleased to see other females following in her footsteps, but nothing can be a substitution for experience after working at Walker’s Funeral Directors for 26 years.

Ken and Natalie Patton went above and beyond in the care of my mother following her passing in October 2021. Being a small family run business, from start to finish the personal service given was exceptional with incredible attention to detail. Their “nothing was too much trouble” approach shone through and every question and every request was met with dignity and grace.

They arranged everything for me from collecting her at the Care Home, arranging the funeral, sorting the celebrant, coffin, flowers and tea at the Cumbria Park but most of all for making her look beautiful on her final journey which is what she wanted.

From the moment we rang them to start the arrangements to the funeral they were amazing and we would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone.

Anthony Ashbridge

Following a recommendation, right from the start Ken and Natalie displayed utmost care and professionalism, organising the celebration of our father’s life with every detail accounted for. They couldn’t have been more helpful and always on hand day or night, where nothing was ever too much trouble. The people and other services recommended by them lived up to the same high standards.

We would go on and recommend Ken Patton Funeral Directors for anyone seeking a truly personable and compassionate service.

The Taylor & Eastmond Families

Highly recommended for the caring and considerate personal service required by a bereaved family. They are there for you. Thank you. Thank you so much.

Nobby, David, Richard and all the Jelley families.

After receiving a recommendation to use Ken Patton funeral director's since my Father's passing, it was obvious from the first meeting that I had found the right people to handle the arrangements and take care of my Father in a dignified and professional manner. The compassion and support given by Ken and Natalie Patton could not be faulted and nothing was too much trouble for them to achieve, I would highly recommend them to any family.

The family of the late Peter Stephenson would like to thank Ken and Natalie for the care and attention provided at such a sad time.  We were not sure who to contact to help organise the funeral but are so glad that we came to Pattons.  We preferred the idea of coming to a small family run business and it's clear this was the right thing to do, nothing was too much trouble for Ken & Natalie who were available 24x7 to help.  As it happened it was a lovely send off for such a special person.  Thanks Ken & Natalie.
