John Tattersall was helpful as usual for his excellent help and advice for arranging Val’s funeral. Extra effort was needed due to Val passing away in Leeds General Infirmary which he dealt with admirably.

Paul Darbyshire 16th Mar 2021

Fielders have arranged both my parents funerals in the last 7 years. Their care and attention to detail is second to none. John Tattersall in particular is an absolute credit to JG Fielders & Son.

Helen Cobbold 13th Mar 2021

We couldn’t thank Fielders enough for their support and excellent funeral service, especially through these difficult and challenging times. Nothing was too much to ask and the service went very well. The whole  team were so kind and professional. John was very supportive  and understanding and went above and beyond to make it as nice as possible under the circumstances. I would not hesitate to recommend them.

  • 5 Natasha Rawnsley 24th Feb 2021

    Derek was treated with upmost respect and I was supported through ever step of the arrangements. The livestream of the funeral and interment was excellent. It meant that those who weren’t able to attend, as far afield as Essex and even Australia could still be with Derek to say farewell.
    So especially to John Tattersall, thank you J G Fielder & Son.

  • 5 Janet Harrison 19th Feb 2021

    Efficient, professional and respectful, a comfort in these awful times.

  • 5 James Blake 17th Feb 2021

    The initial contacts were made in a very friendly and informal manner and throughout the pre-funeral period we were kept well informed by regular contact.

    Once every thing had been agreed, details were received by us to confirm that all arrangements were as we had agreed.

    Presentation and all detailed arrangements on the day of the funeral were all excellent.

  • 5 Lesley Grove 11th Feb 2021

    Fielders provided a professional yet caring and sensitive service arranging my husband Steve's funeral.  Keith and Lucy helped me through the process with patience and understanding which I found more than a little daunting especially due to the Covid restrictions. Thank you to everyone at Fielders for helping me through this difficult time.  

  • 5 Diane Fairley 8th Feb 2021

    Simon and colleagues were very sensitive and patient with me during the whole process. Rob livesy conducted the service and Michaels eulogy just as my daughter and I wished. The Beatles music was perfectly fitting for the occasion as was the poem The last Journey by Timothy Coote.
    Thank you Gilly

    Can’t fault them. Every request done. Must be difficult to make arrangements in these trying times. 

  • 5 Jane Simcock 26th Dec 2020

    Really pleased we picked JG Fielder for my father's funeral. John Tattersall was so helpful and caring. Even in these difficult times, he was able to provide a personal service despite having to do much of the arrangement by phone or email due to covid restrictions.
    I never had to wait for a reply to questions and everything was done with such goodwill and respect.
    I would also like to mention the florist, Patricia May, for the beautiful flowers on the coffin.
