Professional yet caring and understanding . Very approachable putting me at ease in such emotionally sad circumstances. Helping me negiotiate my way through all the formalities with kindness.

Karen Rhodes 10th Sep 2019

A professional, caring, compassionate family business who made an upsetting period of our lives altogether more bearable from initial contact to follow up post-funeral. Helen is remarkable in her ability to guide you through the whole organisation without pressure and sensitive to the needs of all the family at this difficult time. Nothing seemed too much trouble and their attention to detail was second to none. From our family to yours - thank you to all at George Brooke Ltd.

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.
