Very professional team who ensured everything ran smoothly & with compassion. Was able to communicate through via email , which helped with getting the order of service sorted quickly.

Robert Thomson 14th Jul 2018

1st class service, took all the worry out of a very distressing time. Handled everything from the moment we rang with the sad news mum had passed away to organising every step of way with complete compassion and professionalism. Highly recommended, this is the second time we have used their service and now I would not consider any other Funeral Directors.  Sincerely, Bob Thomson.

    Very pleased with all aspects of your assistance and sensitive work. Thank you once more.

  • 5 Michael Akeroyd 6th Jun 2018

    Excellent

  • 5 Roma Hall 20th May 2018

    The family and other mourners were impressed by the efficiency and sensitivity of the service, and I was relieved of all the difficulty of co-ordinating the arrangements and tributes from various quarters. It seemed that anything we wanted was made possible, and a programme of selected music was created, it seemed, effortlessly. This was all provided with quietly supportive friendliness, and I couldn't recommend them more highly.

  • 5 Hava Fleming 18th May 2018

    In every step of our difficult way, Fielder and Son assisted and anticipated our family. We had various special and probably unusual requests which were immediately fulfilled. We were delayed by train journeys but all was accepted and understood. Thank you so much.

  • 5 Gail Vickers 16th May 2018

    We have used Fielder's services twice in the last six months and on both occasions they have been supportive and efficient, inspiring confidence that the funeral ceremonies would go smoothly.

    Keith Houlston who looked after our arrangements on each occasion was always professional but also took a personal interest in our needs. He was helpful, supplying the information we required and keeping us up to date with preparations. We would not hesitate to recommend Fielder's care.

  • 5 Richard Wright 14th May 2018

    Thankyou so much for providing an excellent funeral for Kamal and Margaret Shamy. You have been extremely supportive throughout.
    The day itself was a great success and I have received many words of appreciation since.
    Thankyou again,
    Richard Wright

  • 5 Sandra Dawn Cuthbert 14th May 2018

    Listened to what my wishes were and carried them out. They were compassionate at a very difficult time. The funeral went smoothly thanks to them. I can’t thank them enough. 

  • 5 Alan Eddison 11th May 2018

    Everything went according to plan without any problems. Fielder and son staff were excellent, for example they arranged a viewing of the deceased at their premises during a bank holiday.

  • 5 John Reginald Peverall 10th May 2018

    On the death of my father on 1st March this year I selected J G Fielder and Son to undertake his funeral. This selection was based primarily on their website reviews as I am not local and therefore had no real knowledge of funeral service providers in the York area. I can honestly say that I made the right choice, from my first contact they dealt with everything in a sympathetic but extremely professional manner guiding me through the process. Everyone within Fielders that I had contact with was so kind and helpful. Particular praise must go to John Tattersall for the service he provided, the understanding, the responsiveness and the 'nothing is too much trouble' feeling that he gave me in all our dealings. Thank you from the Peverall family.

  • 5 Ian Smillie 3rd May 2018

    A great comfort. Sympathetic and once services accepted they take over all details of the arrangements, removing a lot of stress from the relatives. Comprehensive and easy to talk to, from the lovely lady in reception to the directors, nothing too much trouble. A very professional service. We can only say good things. Thank you.

  • 5 Annette Jean Pollock 3rd May 2018

    Fielder's were extremely professional and supportive at a very difficult time for us. Nothing was too much trouble and their thoughtful, friendly staff are a credit to the company.

  • 5 Rose Wallace 3rd May 2018

    We could not have wished for better help care and guidance during the whole period .
    We cannot thank John and all of your team enough for the support you have given us.

    Thank you 

  • 5 Alan Lumby 3rd May 2018

    Very thoughtful and helpful

  • 5 Chris Teeling 2nd May 2018

    Following the death of my mother I had no idea what needed to be undertaken in the process leading up to, during and after her cremation. Chris Fielder came out and undertook the entire process in a professional and supportive manner. He dealt with all the little challenges with care and understanding, matched us up with the perfect celebrant for our family situation, and provided excellent support throughout. I will recommend J G Fielder as the perfect provider of funeral service and support.

  • 5 Lynda Margaret Wilcock 2nd May 2018

    John was very helpful with everything- including getting me to the crematorium efficiently when I was stuck in traffic !

  • 5 Katy Barton 2nd May 2018

    Brilliant. Warm,caring , efficient and professional.

  • 5 Ann Gladwin 2nd May 2018

    Very helpful and respectful. Listened to what we said we wanted, and carried out our wishes to the letter. Kept in touch with us throughout the planning stage and were clear about their charges, which were reasonable.

  • 5 Valerie Wood 2nd May 2018

    Simon looked after us very well and took care of everything

  • 5 Janet Ward 2nd May 2018

    This is the second funeral that Fielders have arranged for me this year. They have been extremely painstaking, sympathetic and diligent. Special thanks are due to Simon the funeral director.

  • 5 Ian Stuart Gibson 1st May 2018
