I would like to say how pleased we were with all the help and advice Fielder's gave us throughout the whole process from the time of our mothers passing away to the day of the funeral. This difficult time was made so much easier because of their care and attention ensuring all the appropriate arrangements where in place. Our particular thanks go to Jon Kirkman who managed the arrangements for us.

Bob Wells 25th May 2020

  • 5 Jill Dunlop 17th May 2020

    I received excellent and compassionate service from the staff at Fielders. 
    It was in difficult circumstances due to the virus and also having to move my uncle back to York from Harrogate. 
    I was treated with sympathy and love. 
    John Kirkman handled the funeral for me and kept in regular contact and made the whole procedure smooth and easy for me. 
    The service at the Crematorium wasn’t easy because of restrictions but it was made lovely for our family. 
    Nothing was too much bother. We weee not rushed and we were looked after so well. 
    I cannot recommend Fielders enough. I have used them for most of the funerals that I have had to arrange and have always had excellent service and felt totally confident in them . 
    Many thanks to John and everyone at Fielders

    Everything was handled very well in very difficult circumstances due to corona virus. Thanks very much for the help given in guiding us through the revised details of this funeral.

  • 5 Geraldine Anderson 12th Apr 2020

    I live in Ireland and had to arrange my aunts funeral over the phone and online. This was due to Covid 19 and the restrictions.
    The staff I dealt with namely Jon and Helen from J G Fielder & Son 
    we’re fantastic. I was guided through the arrangements very professionally but with empathy and friendliness.
    My aunt was laid to rest and I couldn’t attend but it was a great comfort knowing she was in safe and trustworthy hands.

    Dear Chris,

    Thank you for your close attention to detail and thorough preparation for my mother's funeral on Tuesday 04th - everything 'just so' and on time despite the road accident blocking the A64.

    Best wishes

    I have nothing but praise for Feilder and Sons, as I am 400miles away from York in Falmouth, Cornwall I had to rely heavily upon them and I'm pleased to say I arrived in York the evening before the cremation and only met face to face the following day. Everything went smoothly and I thank all concerned.

    I would like to offer some constructive criticism but I cannot think of any aspect of the service which could have been done better. The level of service provided by Fielder(and in particular by Simon Aston) was excellent from the making of the first telephone enquiry to been dropped off at the venue where the post funeral service reception was held

  • 5 Sylvia Whalley 22nd Jun 2019

    From the beginning to the end of the difficult process of arranging and carrying out the funeral of my step mum, Frances Barker, Chris Fielder, of J.G. Fielder and son, was always helpful, considerate and showed great compassion. He made sure that everything and all our needs were catered for, and went out of his way to make sure everything went smoothly. He and the office staff were always sympathetic and understanding when I contacted them. I would not hesitate to recommend their services.

    Dear Jon and company.

    A sincere ‘thank you’ for all your arrangements and although they are very sad occasions, we as a family feel we said our ‘God bye’ with your help in a real way.

    The arrangements and the address by Michael Sargent were very moving and much appreciated.

    There was a large gathering which reflected Sheila’s standing in the family and community in general.

    Thank you.

    Bill and the Cunningham Family.
