The service was professional and supportive. All our contact with the company was positive. Jon Kirkman was my main point of call and on the day. I had so many lovely complimentary comments about Jon and his matter. Thank you all for being so kind and helpful at such a difficult time. Sam Dunlop

  • 5 Nigel Shepherd 14th Nov 2021

    J G Fielder & Son are outstanding.   JGF have well over 100 years of experience and it shows.   They really appreciate the emotional turmoil which comes with bereavement.    I never felt in any way pressured to make the necessary decisions at such a stressful time: rather I was guided through the process with kindness and empathy.   I contacted Victor Fielder initially, who later directed the funeral with quiet efficiency.    Jon Kirkman was very capable and helpful at our meeting and always prompt with emails and phone calls.    Also, Helen McCabe was so warm and friendly whenever I called the York office.   Thank you all.

  • 5 Keith Hall 17th Oct 2021

    Fortunately my late Mother had prepared a funeral plan and had nominated Fielders to be the Funeral Directors. So very pleased that she recommended them. From attending initial meeting and meeting Jon from Fielders, I was immediately put at ease as had been very nervous about the whole thing. Jon discussed the day in detail and any thought or concerns we may have. He contacted a local retired Vicar who came round to my house and discussed everything down to the last detail in relation to the plan. On the day Fielders were timely and arrived at Mam's address and took myself and family members to the crematorium. Afterwards very comforting words from Jon to me who led the Team offering any further help and support. Brilliant, Professional and caring.

  • 5 Helen Webster 9th Oct 2021

    Jon’s professionalism, kindness and empathy made the whole sad process much easier 

  • 5 Ann Laing 5th Oct 2021

    Every care was taken to meet our needs, and nothing was too much trouble. The funeral itself was very efficiently managed, and the mourners were treated as honoured guests and felt very much involved in the whole proceedings. We received a most professional and respectful service.
