    We could not have asked for anything more from Fielders- in particular, John Tattersall, our Director. And the day passed without a hitch, peacefully and with dignity. Even in these strange times, we were able to say goodbye to Dad in a way that we wanted, and for that we thank them sincerely.

  • 5 Tony Pink 17th Nov 2020

    Losing both parents in a seven month period was bad enough without the restrictions of COVID-19, but the care and attention afforded by J G Fielder & Son made life so much more tolerable. Well done and a big thank you from all the family. You deserve your reputation as York’s premier funeral directors.

  • 5 Joanne Reed 28th Sep 2020

    Wonderful and professional company. Instantly made myself and my family feel at ease and helped with the entire process. They made sure everything was covered without me feeling the weight and stress of organising. So I could simply focus on visiting my mum. Jon kirkman, was exceptional throughout, checking in most days and was there to answer any questions as and when I needed and made me aware and comfortable with the entire process. I was also made comfortable to visit as much as I wanted, without feeling I was putting on them. The funeral, was very professional and went exactly how mum would of wanted it. I cannot thank themselves and there services enough. I cannot sing the staffs praises enough for everything they have done and taken care of for me.
