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.

    My family and I chose George Brooke's for my mum's funeral because of the wonderful care they gave her when my sister died. From our first phone call to them, to the funeral on the day they are very professional and so caring in every way. They were always there with an answer to every call we made even if it was a silly question (thank you Clare) Helen and her team made the day go smoothly despite the snow and mum would have laugh that her final journey was on the motorway Thank you

  • 5 James Riding 17th Dec 2020

    The whole team made my Mums funeral an extremely positive experience during a very difficult period for the nation and Tier 3 restrictions. We were guided through every step and given time and space to ensure we had everything in place for a befitting funeral for a life well lived. Due to restriction the service was made available online, this allowed a further 40 people to attend the service without a hitch. Nothing was missed, everything went to plan and the team kept us informed the whole way through. Thank you George Brooke for a special day.

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.
