About Us

Established in 1952, George Brooke funeral directors offer compassionate funeral planning services to the North Kirklees area, including Dewsbury, Batley, Mirfield, Cleckheaton and Ossett. The office is open all week and 9am-2.30pm on Saturday.

A family-run and owned business, the George Brooke team promises to take the time to listen to a family’s requirements. Helen and Judith Brooke pride themselves on giving the bereaved help with all their needs during a difficult time, allowing them to plan the ideal bespoke funeral for their loved one.

George Brooke funeral directors work with families from all religious backgrounds and can cater to faith-specific needs, such as dedicated washing facilities for Hindu and Sikh families. They also have civil celebrants and humanist officiants for non-religious funeral services.

A chapel of rest is available for use at both the Dewsbury and Mirfield premises, as well as an area for holding funeral teas following ceremonies. George Brooke can also offer a hearse and three funeral vehicles for hire.

    Everyone at George Brooke treated everyone with so much respect and extremely welcoming, and understood everything we wanted. They treated us like we have known them for years. Some of the best people i have met. This is such a hard job but they are very professional in everything they do. The most touching part was how much respect they have for people who have passed away. Amazing people.

  • 5 Shirley Hyrmoc 9th May 2021

    The funeral arrangements went exactly as I asked even to the point of the floral tribute staying with my mum until the very end. The celebrant told a lovely story of my mums life from bits of information I had given her. The whole thing couldn’t have been any better.

  • 5 Brian Ward 8th May 2021

    Judith and all the staff are amazing, so compassionate and they did my dad proud, even with the current regulations my dads service was beautiful. Nothing is too much for Brooke’s and they did everything we asked for. They put as much thought into our service as I would imagine they would if it was one of their own family . They did mums funeral in 2019 and I was humbled that they remembered details about them both, down to the music she had chosen. Thanks Judith for a lovely service and your very kind words.

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.

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?
