Nothing was too much trouble for the very friendly Haley and Julie. The organisation from beginning to end was excellent and although they listened to the family's requests they also made constructive suggestions.I recommend Darley Funeral Directors without reserve. Howard Elders.

Kerry Goodwin 7th Dec 2021

We have used Darleys Funeral services recently. Hayley went above and beyond, only being a phone call away which was always communicated to us throughout. She sorted everything that needed to be done which took away the stress from our family at a very difficult time. The day of the funeral the Darleys team were so professional and very caring towards us, we are very grateful for their professionalism, care, support and advice throughout.

About Us

Darley Funeral Directors is a funeral director in York, offering a personal, family service to bereaved families throughout the region.

Established by funeral director Hayley Spencer in 2018, after 11 years of working for a larger firm, Darley Funeral Directors is staffed entirely by family and friends. Every member of the team is compassionate and professional - the team of pallbearers worked together for 40 years at Nestlé before retiring. Friendship, community and care are truly at the heart of the business.

Darley are a caring, modern family business who pride themselves on a personal, friendly approach. Unlike some funeral directors, they have remained deliberately small, so that they can spend time with families and really get to know them and the person whose life is being celebrated.

The funeral home in York is cosy and welcoming, and Hayley will always be there to greet you with a cup of tea or coffee. Home visits can also be arranged if you prefer to arrange the funeral in the comfort of your own home.

Whatever your wishes, Darley Funeral Directors in York can help you. Call them at any time of the day to find out more about the services that they offer.

    On contacting Darleys for the very first time we were instantly reassured, Hayley was so warm and compassionate and after that call we felt instantly at ease.   Everything we had read seemed like such a minefield, with so many decisions to make, but we were gently guided through all the arrangements and once again felt so comfortable that Darleys had everything in hand.  Hayley and the team kept in contact with us throughout and we were assured they were always on the end of the phone should we need anything. Everyone we came in to contact with at Darleys were exceptional and it truly felt like such a weight had been lifted. Despite covid restrictions Darleys ensured our Dad had the service he deserved and everything was seamless. We are so thankful to the whole team for making such a difficult time more manageable for us as a family.

    Darleys. What an amazing family run business. They are the most caring and kindness family. Everything was done for us to take any stress away at a sad time. Hayley is a credit to her profession. Thank you. 

  • 5 Shannon Wilson 6th Dec 2021

    Hayley was brilliant from start to finish and was a massive support to me through a massively difficult situation and time. Nothing was too much to ask and she made my dads funeral everything I could of hoped it had been.  People even left saying it had been the best funeral they had been too in a long time (which made me smile). Thankyou again Hayley and team! You all do an absolute fab job 💕

    My mother died from a short Illness and we contacted Hayley and her team prior to her death so it would be arranged for when the time came. Hayley was so professional and assured us Mum would be cared for after her death.  I had never handled a funeral before and Hayley talked me through the whole process with the upmost sympathy and respect.  Mum was so well cared for and Hayley was always at the end of the phone when we needed her. The funeral was handled with such precision and professionalism and I could not have got through any of it without her. We wanted a family run business to look after our beautiful mum so we knew she would be well cared for and this is exactly what we got and more.  I cannot recommend this team enough, my dad even pops in to see her now and then to say hello. She has become a family friend. Hayley and the team, we will always be grateful for all you have done for us and mum 

  • 4 Gary Chapman 6th Dec 2021

    I cant recommend Hayley and her team at Darleys enough. The before, during and after care is second to none and made the whole day alot easier for myself and my family. The chapel was peaceful and respectful and we got to spend some final moments with mum in perfect surroundings. The attention to detail was outstanding and nothing was to much for them in the planning of the funeral.

  • 5 Richard Denton 6th Dec 2021

    Hayley and all the team at Darley's went above and beyond making it a memorable funeral, befitting my Brother and Sister-in-Law. Thank you

  • 5 Emily Broadbent 15th Nov 2021

    Could not have asked for a better group of people than Hayley and the team at Darley’s to support us in the arrangement of my Dad’s funeral. Rather than an impersonal tick box process, Hayley & Julie really took the time to get to know my Mum and I and the life we had with Dad and the kindness, sensitivity and compassion they showed us (and most importantly, my Dad) has been second to none. Nothing was too much trouble for the team and we can confidently say they have made the worst time of our lives much easier (if that is even possible). We didn’t even know where to begin with planning my Dad’s farewell but the Darley’s family made sure the process was as pain free as possible, allowing us as much time as we needed to make every decision. Darley’s ensured the day was the perfect celebration of his life and for that, we really cannot thank them enough. Every step of the process has been exemplary; initial planning, the day itself and our ongoing after support. Funeral care is never something you want to be able to recommend to others but we really could not recommend Darley’s enough, they are a very special group of people. 

  • 5 Kelly Masterson 11th Nov 2021

    I would like to say a massive thank you to Hayley Spencer and Julie Darley-Richmond and the rest at Darley Funeral Directors for everything they have done. I can’t explain how much they have been a comfort to us and supported us through this process. They have been absolutely amazing!! I would recommend them to anyone if they are in the unfortunate position of losing a loved one. I have definitely made some new friends there and will keep in touch. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

  • 5 Siobhan Sutton 11th Nov 2021

    There could never be enough words to express how incredible our experience with Hayley, Julie and the rest of the Darley’s has been. Throughout the hardest time in my life they have been there 100% to support us and the care my beautiful Mum received was outstanding. From collecting Mum, right up until (and after) her completely unique funeral, nothing has been too much trouble. We have felt like we were the only people they were looking after (which wasn’t the case) - time was never an issue.  I will be forever grateful to you all and thank you from the bottom of my heart 💜

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you arrange a funeral?

You can arrange a funeral by choosing a funeral director who will help you organise all of the details. They can help you decide whether to have a cremation or burial and what type of service to choose, as well as additional options, such as music and flowers.

What are disbursements?

Disbursements are additional costs for a funeral service that are paid to third-parties, such as florists, celebrants and burial fees. The funeral director will usually charge you for them and then pay the suppliers themselves.

How can I get help with funeral costs?

If the cost of a funeral is not covered by a prepaid funeral plan, or the estate of the person who has died, you may be able to get financial help from the government’s Bereavement Support Payment or from War Disablement Pensions, charitable funds or budgeting loans.
