Your team, especially Paul Wilkinson, brought light to my darkness, the professionalism, kindness and support you all gave me was beautiful, I will never forget. Thank you so much x

Carol Sellars 26th Feb 2024

A huge thank you to David, his family and all the staff. Gallaghers made the planning of our mum's funeral so easy and straight forward. At first we thought, "how on earth do we do this?" However with their professional and compassionate help we did not need to worry. They guided us through everything and took time to see that every little detail was fine for us. We felt totally looked after, and we felt comfortable phoning up to ask all sorts of questions. Whenever we spoke to someone they were kind, calm and caring and nothing was too much trouble. The phone call the evening before was a nice, reassuring touch. The funeral day went perfectly to plan, and special thanks to Sam for that, (despite the terrible wind and rain). Thank you so much for all the organisation and support that you gave us. I would certainly recommend this company.

About Us

Gallagher Family Funeral Directors is an independent family funeral director in Keighley, and have been serving the people and families of the town and its surrounding districts since 1993.

The business was established by David and Adele Gallagher, with the aim of becoming Keighley's first choice funeral director by maintaining a personal caring approach to all families of the bereaved. Their son, Sam, has recently joined the business sharing the same vision and caring values.

The Gallagher family aims to offer the highest level of care and attention with a flexible approach to individual needs by offering clear funeral options and transparent pricing.

Gallagher Family Funeral Directors are very proud to employ carefully chosen members of staff who show the care, respect and understanding that you would expect from a family business. Every funeral director is fully trained and qualified, obtaining industry recognised diplomas from the National Association of Funeral Directors (NAFD).

The compassionate staff at Gallagher’s all understand the difficult nature of funeral arrangements, but believe it is always worthwhile contacting at least two businesses, so you can compare the services they offer and all the costs involved, as no two funerals or funeral directors are the same.

The team at the funeral home in Keighley will listen to you and make you feel at ease, to try and to help make the process of arranging a funeral easier and more bearable.

You are welcome to visit the premises by appointment to meet the family, who will answer any questions you may have.

Call Gallagher Family Funeral Directors now to find out more about the services they provide and begin making funeral arrangements for your loved one.

  • 5 Becky Collier 19th Feb 2024

    We were so happy that we chose Gallagher to carry out my mums funeral and to look after her, and us. From the start they were so caring, considerate and thoughtful - not too overbearing with contacting and extremely helpful guiding us through every step. Nothing was too much trouble and they made the whole process so much easier and as good as it could be given how difficult it was. We felt that our mum was safe with them. I can’t thank Sam enough for the care and time he gave me and my family. Him and the team including Paul who came to the house when we called them with our bad news, have been just amazing throughout and I don’t think we could have got through it all without them. Thank you so much Sam to you and your wonderful family / colleagues. Becky and Ben Collier.

  • 5 Sue Rourke 3rd Feb 2024

    Would highly recommend Gallaghers funeral team . From the initial phone call telling them my loved one passed away , they allowed me to take my time to discuss the plans , showed empathy and they were  very passionate about getting everything perfect for me.  Communication was always high on the agenda informing me at all times, not once was I worried about my loved one being cared for.  Very professional on the day of the funeral, my experience was perfect.  Thank you to all the Team , excellent. 

  • 5 Rebecca Whiteley 2nd Feb 2024

    Simon was absolutely brilliant, during such a hard time nothing was too much and he made me feel that it was just as important to him that my mum had the perfect send off as it was to us. So supportive which was exactly what I needed. He went above and beyond and I cannot recommend this company enough. Thankyou so much xx

  • 5 Sheila McKeand 30th Jan 2024

    Gallaghers provided us with an excellent service. Sam Gallagher was efficient, friendly and respectful at all times. He offered some suggestions, which made mum's funeral a personal and lovely tribute to her. Sam communicated well with us; the other Gallaghers staff we met were all polite and helpful. Superb service at the worst of times for a family, and I would not hesitate to recommend to anyone.

    We wish to thank everyone at Gallaghers for their superb and professional service. The celebrant ,Scarlett Kolavinsky, was compassionate and accommodating, even visiting us on New Year’s Day to discuss the arrangements for a celebration of life. We would recommend them to anyone requiring assistance following a bereavement.

  • 5 Lynda Debenham 21st Dec 2023

    Sincere thanks for the beautiful funeral for my beloved son James. It was a lovely service and everybody present commented on this. I was supported to make choices unique to my son and it really did feel like it was tailored around him.

    A special thank you to Michelle who guided me every step of the way and went the extra mile to ensure things went smoothly. I arranged most things from a distance but need not have worried as I knew somebody was always at the other end of the phone. My son deserved the flawless occasion and I can highly recommend the Gallagher family to personalise
    the whole thing around a loved one's life. With heartfelt thanks.
