About Us

About Bairds of Antrim Funeral Directors

Bairds of Antrim Funeral Directors was founded in the late 1870’s by James Baird, great grandfather of the current manager, Jon Baird. We have been serving the local community and surrounding areas for four generations with over 140 years of experience, providing a professional and caring service to families in their time of need.

The funeral church was purpose built a few years ago and is a modern, warm and friendly environment for families to hold a funeral service. 

Protecting the environment is very important. We always ask our suppliers to guarantee that all timber they use to make our coffins and caskets comes from sustainable sources. We believe that this approach to environmental responsibility is unique among Funeral Directors. 

The team at our Antrim 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.
