All about us

Shields of Donaghadee is long established within Donaghadee. Mr Shields originally set up business as a shop and garage at the current premises, finally taking over the funeral business of another trader in the town. The business then became Funeral Directors with a small service room. 

Mr Shields and his wife Molly raised their family in the accommodation above the premises with Mr Shields being active in local Government, becoming a local councillor for the people of Donaghadee.

“Over the years, Shields has seen many redevelopments, but still offers the same level of care and professionalism that the people of Donaghadee have not only come to expect, but deserve.”

Our current team at Shields are very proud of our heritage and we have looked after generations of families and will continue to do so for many years to come.

As well as caring for our families, Shields of Donaghadee has an ethos of ‘putting something back into the community’. We support local charitable projects and provide relevant training to those in the care sector.
