    These funeral directors are first class, from the first phone call ( on a Sunday ) through to the funeral itself. Their fleet of vehicles is excellent as are all the personnel. First class service and advice from beginning to end. Thank You, it made a sad and difficult time a lot easier.

    I would like to express my gratitude for Eric F.Box Funeral Directors support, respect and patience on the day. Thank you for your excellent work.

  • 5 Adrian Summerscales 1st Mar 2019

    As a family and for myself I think it would be impossible to pick a better, more friendly or professional service than that provided by Eric F. Box. They have been extremely courteous, sympathetic and understanding and above all very patient and kind towards my bereft father. The whole team were extremely professional and helpful on the day of the funeral and things couldn't have gone more smoothly whilst their pre-funeral arrangements were spot on. I would like to thank Edward Box in particular for being so " brilliant "...no other word to describe him ! Thank you for everything.

  • 5 Lyn Goodwin 9th Feb 2019

    Obviously this is not a service you generally require very often, and as such, you have no expertise and rely very very heavily on the experience and service the Funeral Director provides. Well, my late mothers funeral was provided by Eric Box Funeral services. Andrew dealt with me on behalf of my mother. Andrew is the consummate professional. However, having said that, I realise that it was a team effort by Eric Box as a company and I can not think of one instance or item that could have been any better....everything  was done to the highest degree with the greatest dignity. I have dealt with many people and many organisations during my 50 years working life, Eric Box's sits well and truly at the top.

  • 5 Claire Shannon 8th Feb 2019

    It's never an easy thing to do; planning a funeral and going through all of the many details involved, but Edward and his team were so wonderful throughout. Supportive and professional every step of the way. We were so thankful for their assistance and informative responses. They looked after us, ensured that everything was just as we wanted it to be and made things that little bit easier and a lot less stressful. Thank you all so much for everything you did for us. It was hard to make those decisions, but we knew from the start that we were in safe hands and we were so glad to have Edward and the rest of the team at our sides throughout the process.

  • 5 Richard Lunn 8th Feb 2019

  • 5 Darren Pearson 22nd Dec 2018

    The service they’ve provided for myself and family has been second to none. Especially at a time when you need caring, professional and compassionate people around you.

  • 5 Paul Ward 14th Aug 2018

    We dealt with Sally for the funeral of Maria. She was dignified, patient, kind, and understanding. She talked gently thought the process and made all the arrangements for everything we wanted.  When we went to see Maria in the chapel of rest she just looked like she was sleeping.  Overall they did a fantastic job. I would recommend them to anyone. Thanks for everything. Maria’s family x

  • 5 John Dickinson 6th Aug 2018

    Professional and sensitive from start to finish. Sally was everything we needed at a very upsetting and stressful time. Nothing was too much trouble and she took all the pressure of arranging a funeral away. I would recommend them without hesitation.

  • 5 Robert Evans 20th Jul 2018

    As a family we have used Eric Box's for years simply because their service is second to none. Andrew recently carried out my Dad's funeral and he was excellent from start to finish. He provided a very dignified funeral service, collection of my dad from the hospital and the private viewing. Thank you so much Andrew

  • 5 Wayne Allen 3rd Jul 2018

    Very professional and polite people. Excellent service when you really need it.

  • 5 John Dickinson 24th Jun 2018

    Wonderful service from Sally at Eric F Box. Extremely professional with a perfect balance of sensitivity and practicality. Just what we needed at a very difficult time. Dealt with everything for the funeral, even providing a wheelchair for my mum who cannot walk at the moment. I would have no hesitation in recommending them (and Sally) to anyone needing a Funeral Director.

  • 5 Michael Hick 30th May 2018

    Eric F. Box Funeral Directors, Dewsbury and in particular Andrew Box have been very attentive, supportive and professional throughout this, the most difficult experience of our lives. Nothing has been too much to ask of them. Arranging the service was made easy and the day itself and support since has been faultless.

    Edward Box replied
    Michael, thank you for your very kind review and your trust in us as a business. I am pleased that I have been a little help to you during these last few weeks. Andrew Box

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you arrange a funeral?

You can arrange a funeral by choosing a funeral director who will help you organise all of the details. They can help you decide whether to have a cremation or burial and what type of service to choose, as well as additional options, such as music and flowers. You can find out what happens at a funeral and compare funeral directors on Funeral Guide.

What are disbursements?

Disbursements are additional costs for a funeral service that are paid to third-parties, such as florists, celebrants and burial fees. The funeral director will usually charge you for them and then pay the suppliers themselves.

How can I get help with funeral costs?

If the cost of a funeral is not covered by a prepaid funeral plan, or the estate of the person who has died, you may be able to get financial help from the government’s Bereavement Support Payment or from War Disablement Pensions, charitable funds or budgeting loans.
