    J G Fielder and Son provided an excellent service in arranging the funeral of my cousin.
    All that we wished for was provided promptly and accurately without fuss, from the printing of orders of service, the music at the crematorium and the funeral cars as requested. Also, and not least, the liaising with the minister at the Church. Very many thanks.

  • 5 Chris Leather 25th Jan 2019

    Chris Fielder provided an excellent personal service from beginning to end and did so in a caring and professional manner without being overly sombre at an obviously difficult time for myself and children on the passing of my wife. All matters were taken over competently and in a timely manner and nothing felt like it was too much trouble.
    I was impressed with Fielders as a whole from the reception we received as soon as we walked through the door on the first day. This is an excellent family run firm clearly very competent in their field, providing a very high level of customer service that is very hard to match these days and for what I consider a fair price. I will have no hesitation in using them again.

  • 5 David Wilson 10th Jan 2019

    The whole family are grateful for the way in which everything was handled with courtesy, sympathy and understanding.
    The whole occasion went well due to the well organised and polite way in which all proceedings were carried out and dealt with. 




    From a personal point of view I was impressed by the manner of dealing with my family in making them feel at ease and reducing the worries and anxiety they could have felt. 
    On what was a sad occasion it was gratifying to know that things were being dealt with in such a sympathetic way.




    Please extend my sincere thanks to all your staff including those behind the scenes who we never met but obviously helped make the day what it was.

  • 5 Richard Sawyer 11th Oct 2018

    Our Funeral Director, Simon, and all of the staff at Fielder's York provided a professional, comprehensive service that adapted to our needs. My wife died suddenly at a young age, 240 miles from our home city. Fielder's made all the requested arrangements, taking any complicated tasks off our hands to ensure that the day ran as smoothly as possible. I would highly recommend their service.

  • 5 Terry Uren 9th Oct 2018

    We couldn't have asked for better service from Jon. even on the e-mails we were receiving in Australia, we could tell by the way he wrote the email we had a good team.

    it was nice to put a face to the email a few days before the service, also with Rev. John.

    Everyone said on the day how nice the service was & how sincere everyone was, proving they love what they are doing & it's not just a job.

    Thank you all.

    Regards

    Terry & Barbs Uren

  • 5 Rosanne Gabe 23rd Sep 2018

    We were treated with the upmost respect from the first moment, right through to the end of the service. Our wishes for my father’s cremation service could not have been carried out more beautifully. My special thanks go to Chris Fielder, who made the whole process so much less stressful than it could easily have been. He does his job with enviable precision, whilst remaining both kind and compassionate.

  • 5 Malcolm Coggan 9th Sep 2018
