I gained an excellent impression when I rang on the day my father died. The lady I spoke to was very comforting and helpful. She used just the right phrasing for the situation. She did not presume that I would choose their business and was appreciative when I rang back. Everything was done as planned. The funeral took place at the crematorium and the arrangements were dignified. The only tricky part was sorting out the music for Harrogate crematorium which does not have the Wesley system. I would recommend sorting out the organist and other music at an early stage, particularly around Christmas time.

  • 5 Tony Phillips 7th Dec 2017

    JG Fielder Funeral Directors were excellent, covering all the bases in a friendly, sensitive manner that greatly helped ease the stress of arranging a cremation. They were professional throughout and totally reliable, generating confidence and trust. Everyone present commented on how personal and appropriate the whole event was. The background paperwork was meticulous and they collated all expenses, including for the Wake and the Service Celebrant, so we only had one bill to worry about. Highly recommended.
