A Brief History
McAlisters is a business in which eight generations of the family have been serving the people of North Antrim and beyond for well over 200 years. It was founded in 1800 as a modest retail outlet, and the business gradually expanded to include hardware, groceries, spirits, porter and drapery goods. Funeral Undertaking was added to its portfolio in the mid-nineteenth century. As established Funeral Directors in Northern Ireland, we have been providing a professional and dignified service to customers throughout Ireland for over 35 years.
In the early days of the Funeral Undertaking business, local craftsmen, who also made fiddles and built boats, were employed to make each individual burial casket to suit the deceased. Today, we provide an up-to-date professional funeral service. Under the guidance of its current owners, Andrew and Mannix McAlister, customers can choose from a wide range of burial caskets, including biodegradable ones, to suit their wishes. We can also help you choose floral tributes and music, as well as arranging the provision of transport for the deceased and the bereaved.
