The whole process from start to finish was seamless. Under what, obviously, are very distressing times we were treated with care, consideration and respect. My late father's wishes were met without question. Nothing was too much trouble. We highly recommend the George Brooke team. Thank you.

Graham Kershaw 5th Aug 2020

Having dealt with George Brooke’s for the first time I was impressed with their compassion and efficiency in dealing with the organisation of the funeral. The staff are friendly and make you feel nothing is too much trouble. I would not hesitate to recommend their services in the future. Graham

It was reassuring to have a warm, caring team walking alongside you- at one of the most difficult and emotional times of your life. No detail was too small which meant we were able to say goodbye to our wonderful dad in the right way.

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.

    George Brookes was the only decent service we received during this 2 years of Janice's cancer battle. As they know our family we wanted them to be with her for her final journey knowing full well she'd finally get the dignity and treatment she deserved and Helen and her team fulfilled this to a fantastic standard. We can not thank them enough for the help and support we have had from George Brookes

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.
