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.

    Excellent service throughout, kept informed every step of the way. Wonderfully compassionate and understanding from all the staff. Helen gave a fitting and beautiful tribute to mum at the funeral service.
    I would recommend them without hesitation.

  • 5 David Ormsby 22nd Jan 2024

    From contacting the evening Paula passed. The professionalism of all your staff. The fact that they stated they would now look after mum.
    The team that phoned us in the following days didn't push us or feel that we had to make decisions.
    Alicia who went the extra mile so we could get the photo sorted. And even went out of her way to look into something else.
    As a company your staff are so amazing and look after families. Thankyou so much as neither of us have done this before. But now we know that if we are in this position again the whole process is going to be made so much easier.As David said the only down side was been driven by Judith to golf club. But as you know that was a brilliant touch for us as a family. And that is what you do think about the families
    Thank you again. Dave,Shelly,carol and families. X
